What was once a novelty in Brisbane has now transformed into a total foodie phenomenon on wheels—yep you guessed it, we’re talking about food trucks. There’s something so exciting about pulling up to a festival, corporate event or even just the roadside and smelling the delectable aromas escaping from the trucks whilst trying to decide on which to tackle first (Italian or Korean—or maybe Greek?).

Whilst this may appear the hardest task of your day or night, don’t fret because we have got you covered. Thanks to your amazing recommendations, we have finalised a list of 10 truckin’ good food trucks in Brisbane for you and your crew to track down and tuck into. 

Mi Casa

With a name inspired by the iconic Tarantino masterpiece, Pulp Fiction, you’d hope that American street food truck, Mi Casa, lives up to its namesake. And according to you, it certainly does. This Brisbane food truck is all about mouth watering burgers, with a bright and colourful exterior that stands out from the rest. Wrap your hands around one of their meaty stacks and  you’ll soon find out why people chase them all over town.

The Bun Mobile

It’s no secret we love a bao bun, the steamed bun slash burger taking the gastronomic world by storm—and none serve it up better than The Bun Mobile. After hitting the streets in March 2012 as one of Brisbane’s first ever food trucks, this institution on wheels has quickly built itself a cult following, consistently serving up their menu of three classic bao bun flavours: twice cooked pork, teriyaki chicken and wagyu beef, along with daily specials. With vegan, vegetarian and gluten free options, this is one food truck you will have to chase down and try.

Benz On Miller 

Got an urge for a burg that won't go away? Look no further than Benz on Miller. Creators of some of Brisbane’s best burgers, this food truck is serving up all the greasy, cheesy, meaty deliciousness to cue your burger cravings. In fact, they’re so good that the team also has a permanent location in Murarrie—but don’t let that stop you going in search of their truck. With fried chicken, beef and even vegan stacks, you’re in for a feast no matter your preference.

King Of The Wings

All hail the King of the Wings, Brisbane’s first dedicated American style chicken wing food truck. After hitting the road back in 2013, this humble restaurant on wheels has quickly become a city treasure.They even opened the first King of the Wings flagship restaurant and bar in Stafford just last year, complete with a beer deck and extensive menu. But don’t worry, their food truck is still roaming the streets, slinging those saucy, crispy wings all over town.

Koma Sliders 

What do you get when you fuse sophisticated Koren food with an American burger joint? A food(ie) truck experience with no equal. Going by the name of Koma Sliders (Ko for Korean and Ma for American), this purveyor of meals on wheels has been operating since 2013, bringing together owners Yumi and Olaf’s heritage—think Korean BBQ burgers, a cheese steak sub and crispy Korean fried chicken. Plus, with rice and salad options too, there’s a delicious dish for everyone to enjoy.

One World Food Truck 

Designated cuisines do not exist at One World Food Truck. The creation of Spanish chef Jason Sierra, this food truck prodigy mainly serves up Spanish/Mediterranean and South American dishes, but don’t be surprised to see Korean, Indian and other Asian delicacies make an appearance on the menu. Being a chef-run food truck, everything is handmade with love and fresh produce, including 10-hour slow-smoked pork and lamb and hand-cut chips. We are (and you will be too) drooling over their Zeus burger with slow-smoked Greek lamb and crispy cauliflower salad. 

Ruby The Little Red Ice Cream Van

There’s nothing more iconic than a visit from the ice cream van, complete with its melodic tunes and retro appearance. So it’s no wonder Ruby The Little Red Ice Cream Van is one of your favourite Brisbane food trucks. Ruby is a fully restored, vintage English ice cream van, swirling up a variety of traditional (and gluten free) soft serve cones and Italian gelato and sorbets, made locally from premium natural ingredients. No need to listen out for the ice cream music—just track their movements on their Facebook page.

Sorella

This sophisticated food van is far from your typical side of the road, fast food truck, and we are so here for it. The inspiration behind Sorella, the Italian word for sister, is to deliver delicious, contemporary Italian cuisine to the suburbs of Brisbane and beyond. Basically, they’re a food truck with a high-end difference, and you’ll taste it from the first bite of one of their saucy pastas, gnocchis, arancinis or Nutella-slathered Italian doughnuts.  

Gnokout Gnocchi

Expect nothing but al dente pasta drowned in knock-out sauce at this mobile gnoccheria. Gnokout is ladles up everyone’s favourite Italian comfort food—the humble gnocchi—plus more Italian eats (did someone say cannolis?) across the streets of Brisbane and down the East Coast. Surely you don’t need more convincing than that to give Gnokout a try?

Rolls Pho Mi

Last, but certainly not least, is the fiery red Vietnamese street food truck dishing up all your favourites to the people of Brisbane, Gold Coast and Sunny Coast: Rolls Pho Mi. The love-child of husband and wife team Duy and Steph, this truck is recreating traditional Vietnamese classics from recipes acquired from mum Dzung, such as fresh rice paper rolls, their signature 24hr pho, authentic banh mi and other mouth-watering snacks. With slow dripped Vietnamese iced coffee, fresh young coconut juice topped with fresh fruit and lychee lemonade to wash it all down with, you’re in for a true Vietnamese food truck feast. 

We’ve also got to give snaps to a few more roaming Brisbane food trucks who we think are worth tracking down, including Carlos Tacos, Notorious E.A.T., Na Pizzetta, Oh Cannoli and London Spuds
