Philly’s Finest Samboni’s
One of the best places to get cheesesteak sandwiches is this food truck that belongs to 3 fine men who partnered and even joined the Great Food Truck Race – and almost won! They offer different variants of the cheesesteak sandwich and their bestseller is the stuffed cheesesteak.
Who doesn’t love waffles any time of the day? Foolish Waffles has sugary sweet waffle desserts or waffle meals with pork belly, fried chicken, or spicy glazed pork. They also have something for vegans and a create-your-own meal or dessert which is a consistent bestseller among children and the adventurous.
With a food truck business called Sugar Philly and a truck called Sheila, how could you not love the idea of buying gourmet desserts from 2 partners who worked out the business details over a dinner of fried chicken? Their specialties include crème brulee, blueberry or strawberry cheesecake, and French macaroons. They also have seasonal specials like spicy chocolate cake, pumpkin custard, and peanut panna cotta, among others.
It’s not every day that you find a brick wood-fired pizza oven and when it is put in a food truck, you know you need to sample the food. Pizza is really best when eaten fresh off the oven. All their pizzas are 11 inches or personal size good for one. They offer 6 choices from spicy garlic to one with roasted mushrooms, braised raddicho with a balsamic drizzle. Definitely a new experience to be enjoyed!
There are dozens of other food trucks roaming the streets of Philadelphia selling mac and cheese, pulled pork sandwiches, Polish sausages, burgers, Thai curry, tater tots, grilled cheese, beer cheese, and crepes, just to name a few. All these food trucks have suddenly made the city a lot more interesting!
