Not featured here, but a Food Truck I’ve come to adore, is Pop Goes the Waffle. More than just a food truck, Sara Fludd has populated the region with her delicious, savory and sweet creations. See our full interview with her, and the inspiration behind Pop Goes the Waffle here.

Also, a quick and heartwarming update, Atwaters BBQ in South St. Pete is serving free breakfast and lunch to local kids who need it during this difficult time.

The long running restaurant offers meals for kids from noon to 1:30pm. When available, they offer the pre-packaged meals from St. Pete Youth Farm until 5pm or until they sell out, according to a report by WTSP. The restaurant is located at 895 22nd Avenue South in St. Petersburg.

Flip’n Tasty

Flip’n Tasty is a Filipino food truck that will leave you wanting to eat nothing but Filipino dishes for weeks. We recommend the Sara Rice bowl: a bowl of white jasmine rice, pancit (noodles in many Filipino dishes), barbecue pork pieces and topped with their Tasty sauce.

Check out their Facebook page to keep up with them as they roam around St. Pete!

Taste of Gourmet Cafe

Taste of Gourmet has a cafe location at 4195 54th Ave N, but we are so here for the food truck. All of the food is hot, fresh, and made to order. Their menu changes fairly often, but no matter what is on the menu, this southern seafood and comfort food never disappoints.

Heavy’s Food Truck

Posted by Heavy's Food Truck on Saturday, January 27, 2018

If you want Southern homestyle cooking, Heavy’s is the way to go. Chefs Kendrick and Ron have over 15 years of cooking experience and wanted to bring a little southern charm to the Tampa Bay Area. This food will fill you up and make you feel like you need a nap, which in our opinion is the best way to feel after a meal.

Check out their facebook page to find out where they are!

Ikigai Sushi St. Pete

Ikigai Sushi is ranked #1 for good reason. It was originally a food truck (and still is!), but the team has expanded to also have a restaurant location! We love the individuality that this truck provides. The bowls are fully customizable and the food is beyond mouth watering.

Maggie on the Move

Maggie on the Move is one of the original food trucks in the Burg and their menu is sprawling.  Chicken Souvlaki? They got it. Tater tots? You bet. Fried cheese curds? Oh heck yes. They also serve up poutine, Greek donuts and famous bacon baklava. The truck has a ubiquitous presence here in St. Pete, and you’d be wise to follow them on Facebook to catch Maggie on the Move at the next Tampa Bay event.

St. Pete Taco Lady 

St. Pete Taco Lady’s grilled mahi tacos are divine.Have a craving for something seriously savory? Dig into their green chili braised pork tacos are a must try. The St. Pete Taco Lady’s menu is pretty eclectic and caters to vegan diners, too. Plus, who doesn’t love a good taco? The truck is a guaranteed crowd pleaser for foodies and casual diners alike.

Posted by Anju Korean Gastrotruck on Sunday, May 12, 2019

ANJU is the Korean word for salty, crunchy or spicy food that pairs well with beer or soju. Here, Korean fried chicken wings are king. They come with a side of amazing sweet sticky rice, too. You can also go for the crispy fried chicken K-Pops.

The truck also introduced us to Bibimbap. The dish is a hearty, spicy bowl with grilled marinated ribeye and Asian veggies — zucchini, bean sprouts, carrots, kimchi — over delicious sticky rice. Follow ANJU on Facebook to see where they’ll pop up next.

Vamos Food Truck

The best damn arepas around. The food truck serves up sensational Colombian cuisine. I’d be lost without their interpretation of a Cuban sandwich, the amazing (and spicy) vegetarian options, and just the overall kindness and compassion from the owners. We’re always dreaming about the made from scratch white corn arepas.

Chef Nicolas Gomez was born and raised in Bogota, Colombia. He received his degree from Le Cordon Bleu in Orlando and has worked at some of the best restaurants in Tampa. He has over 16 years experience including banquet experience.

Owner/Operator Melinda Murray Gomez grew up in Central Illinois before moving to Tampa in 2006. She has over 12 years experience in the hospitality industry and is an aspiring Sommelier working towards Certification with the Court of Master Sommeliers.

Vamos! began as a small booth in October 2016 operating at farmers markets and events around the Tampa Bay area. In March 2017 we were proud to open Vamos! Colombian Inspired Food Truck. Look for us at breweries, offices and special events all over Hillsborough and Pinellas Counties.
