The addition of several food trucks over the past year has made North Loop a serious contender in the city-wide ring of engined eateries. Nestled among suburban residencies, vintage clothing shops, a slow-filling gas station, and an explosive collection of street art are five locally-owned, locally-inspired food trucks.
Here’s a look at each one, collectively showing what makes the North Loop food truck scene such a special mix.
You know that ice breaker question, “What would be your last meal on earth?” My answer is always a Thai curry dish (and a brownie sundae). Everywhere I’ve lived–Boston, D.C, L.A., and NYC–I’ve had a go-to Thai restaurant to get my curry fix.
