By Parkcentral Admin - August 15, 2019
Raleigh is undeniably one of the top cities in the country when it comes to food trucks. From hot dogs and barbecue to dim sum and tacos, the city is teeming with incredible street food — you just have to know where to find it. Here are ten of our favorite food trucks in Raleigh that are well worth the trip.
Stuft Food Truck
Stuft Food Truck serves gourmet stuffed potatoes all across the Triangle. Each potato is bursting with gourmet toppings that are made from scratch using local ingredients. Choose from any of the unique flavor combinations they offer, from the 15-hour red wine braised beef brisket to the creamed spinach with melted cheddar.
Pho Nomenal Dumpling
When you’re looking for great food trucks in Raleigh, you must try Pho Nomenal Dumpling, which won Season 6 of the Great Food Truck Race. Pho Nomenal serves (you guessed it) pho, as well as dumplings, noodles and Thai bubble tea. The menu includes all sorts of playful twists on traditional Asian fare, including Taiwanese spaghetti and corn dog banh mi.
You won’t find a bit of fusion at Bo’s Kitchen. This food truck in Raleigh offers authentic homespun Korean recipes, incorporating sharp kimchi and velvety gochujang where it counts. The truck bills itself as authentic, and it’s hard to argue that its no-fuss approach is anything but that. Some of the best items on the menu are the mandu or the dumplings, wrapped around your choice of meat.
Porchetta, the self-described “pork-centric food truck in Raleigh, uses porchetta as a staple menu item. The signature sandwich consists of pulled, slow-roasted Italian-style pork on toasted ciabatta. The menu also offers tacos and sides including crispy rosemary potatoes and apple horseradish slaw.
The cleverly-named Cockadoodlemoo serves BBQ as well as gourmet sandwiches. If you can’t make up your mind, you can’t go wrong with The Raven, which is a hickory-smoked brisket on grilled ciabatta and served with horseradish-Granny Smith apple slaw. Save room for the Ultimate Ice Cream Sammich made with two fresh-baked chocolate chunk cookies!
Arepa Culture NC
If you’ve never had an arepa, you’re in for a treat! Arepa Culture NC serves up a variety of gluten-free Venezuelan sandwiches, filled with meats, cheeses and veggies. The most popular signature arepa is La Tica, featuring sauteed chicken with caramelized onions and bell peppers and topped with provolone and mozzarella cheese.
Spanglish has taken traditional Puerto Rican cuisine and made it available across the Triangle. The restaurant has two local brick-and-mortar locations, however, the food truck is what has made Spanglish so popular. The truck travels to some of Raleigh’s most popular spots and breweries, offering up rice bowls, empanadas and sandwiches, featuring fresh-made sobao bread and mouthwatering 12-hour slow-roasted pork.
The Cow And The Oak
Sometimes all you want is something cheesy, heavy and comforting. At those times, The Cow And The Oak has your back! This food truck in Raleigh is known for its made-from-scratch comfort food, crafted from locally-sourced ingredients. The menu includes a variety of flavor combinations that you can have made into a mac and cheese bowl or a grilled cheese. We can’t get enough of the Drunken Pig with pulled pork, bbq sauce, bourbon onions, jalapenos, swiss-American cheese and sharp cheddar cheese.
When you’re craving greasy, down-home food on the go, FatBoys Kitchen is the food truck in Raleigh to visit. While the truck is best known for gourmet burgers made with 100% Angus beef, they also offer wings, steak sandwiches, fried seafood favorites, hot dogs and addictive sides like cheese-drenched (Fatty) Fries.
The Wandering Moose
The Wandering Moose is a food truck serving savory slow-cooked meats, scratch-made sauces and tasty sides like smokey bacon mac and cheese. You can also find some great veggie items whether you lean vegetarian or just enjoy a good salad.
