What started out ages ago from the simple need for convenience, getting food selection brought to you… has now become an elite delicacy where people travel afar just to get a taste of the latest food truck craze.

The roots of the food truck boom here in America reach all the way back to the 1860s, when an innovative Texas cattle rancher outfitted an old U.S. Army wagon with kitchen-like functionality for the cow hands who traveled months on end. It was simple, with shelves and drawers that were filled with dried beans and meats, coffee, and water. Nothing like a good selection right?

Lucky for us, today’s version of the chuckwagon is very different—and you can find just about any food in any flavor on one. In fact, food trucks have become more of a trend than an actual time-saver. Just check out some of these wild meals on wheels, from Berlin to the Bay Area.

Woop Woop in Berlin, Germany
Like any proper 5-year-old, we’re starting this food tour with dessert. And rather than spoil your appetite, this should awaken it with a pretty interesting approach to something sweet. Just remember, portion control people.

Your custom single-batch of homemade ice cream starts with fresh ingredients, including a variety of chocolates, nuts and fruits. Whatever you choose gets tossed in a food processor with milk, cream and sugar… and viola!

The real secret is the speed in which it’s made. Woop Woop can serve up an order within seconds, thanks to their secret ingredient, liquid nitrogen. This allows the mixture to be cooled down to minus 196 degrees Celsius, instantly forming icecream. Go figure, one of the two founders of Woop Woop is a former physicist.

Jumplings Tasty Dumplings in Perth, Australia
This mobile meal kitchen offers some of the tastiest homemade dumplings in all the land. They’re hand-crafted with five different kinds of flour, but what’s inside is the real surprise.

Since 2009, Jumplings’ dumplings are a true testament of tastes. They combine some of the freshest local produce with things like scallops and truffles, sambal chilli tiger prawn, and of course, kangaroo meat.

So next time you’re in the land down under, hop on over to Jumplings for some curbside cuisine like nowhere else in the world.

Señor Sisig in San Francisco, California
The food truck scene in San Fran is exploding, so it’s tough to pick just one. But the Filipino fusion-inspired menu you’ll find at Señor Sisig’s keeps the line long and the people in it coming back for more.

They offer everything from Sisig Fries—crispy shoestrings swimming in pork, nacho cheese, sour cream, guac, and pico—to their famous burritos, stuffed with Adobe garlic rice, pinto beans, pico, cilantro cream sauce, and more pork.

Although you can pick an alternative protein for any of their specialties, there’s something unique about the pork that all the locals rave about. Maybe it’s because Sisig in Filipino food is a dish made of pig’s head and liver. Different… but it wouldn’t stop me!

SPAMERICAN! Food Truck touring the U.S.  
The last meal on wheels is one that’s hard to miss, although you better move quick! SPAM, the precooked canned meat that’s become a favorite delicacy in Hawaii, was loaded on a food truck and made its way around 12 major cities throughout the U.S. this year.

Serving up everything from hot-pressed Cuban “SPAMwhiches” to coconut SPAM spears with spicy pineapple chutney, the SPAMERICAN! Food Truck puts a twist on your favorite canned meat.

Hopefully they’ll make it to your neck of the woods next.

Taking a peek at some signature dishes, whether a million miles away or in your own back yard, shows the imagination and possibilities that you can get these days from curbside cuisine. Bon appétit!
