Food trucks are a growing trend all over the nation and brides are beginning to take notice. An emerging trend in wedding culinary offerings is to call on a food truck to offer fare to guests at outdoor venues or to provide a late-night snack or sweet treat to guests beyond the doors of the reception hall. With mobile snack shops popping up all over Chicago, it’s becoming easier than ever to find a food truck to feature at your wedding. Here’s a sample of Chicago’s finest mobile restaurants…
Ethnic Fare: Celebrate your heritage or pay homage to your favorite foods with an ethnically inspired food truck. Chicago food trucks boast everything from Latin tacos as Taquero Fusion to Argentine empanadas at 5411 to Mediterranean “falafelwiches” at the soon-to-be-in-Chicago Falafelwich Wagon.
Sweet Treats: Skip the lavish wedding cake and let guests nibble on a variety of delectable desserts from a cute and kitschy food truck. Flirty Cupcakes, voted Best Food Truck in Chicago, satisfies sweet tooth cravings with a unique assortment of flavorful mini cakes, such as pineapple rum, peanut butter and chocolate, or s’mores varieties. Sweet Ride, a bakery on wheels, doles out whoopie pies, cake pops, and puddings, while Starfruit cools down guests with smoothies and sundaes made with frozen kefir.
Comfort Foods: Ditch the decadent buffet and give guests what they really want: classic comfort food. From gourmet sausages at Haute Sausages to creamy mac’ n cheese at Southern Mac & Cheese to mini sliders at the Slide Ride, Chicago food trucks boast a bevy of options for tickling taste buds and satisfying starving guests.
