Keep on (food) truckin'

Nowadays, food trucks have suddenly become all the rage. Thanks to that blink-and-you’ll-miss-it end credits scene from “The Avengers,” shawarma shacks have become so popular in the United States that they’ve practically made eating street food on a curb look cool.

Thankfully, we Pinoy foodies won’t have to hop on a plane to New York or Los Angeles to experience that kind of scene. Even though the now-ubiquitous “Jollijeep” shacks have proven themselves indispensable for penny-pinching yuppies everywhere, we sometimes wish for a nice little upgrade from the usual budget meals to go.
Cashing in on the food truck trend is a group of 20-something entrepreneurs that aims to offer “a different shawarma experience.” If you happened to be in the Glorietta 3 area last December, you’ve most likely caught a glimpse (or whiff) of Shawarma Bros’ late-night fare at Cucina Andare (“Kitchen On-the-Go”), Manila’s first food truck market organized by the same people behind Mercato Centrale at The Fort.

Same here... nice idea. But I'd like to know the specifics of this kind of biz: the competition, what new to offer, the market, permits, expense, etc,

@ hunkinvestor, this isn't new...I remember Mobile Food Van in Makati during the 90's. Gamit nila AUV but of course technology evolved thats why they put their mobile food van along the mall...para sosyal. It's not new in certain part of the Metro's specially along the school zone and public hospital. Saan pa ba mga Ka PMT'ers? :cool2:

An article about: Food sold in trucks? Before you can say “Jollijeep,” here’s Young Star’s guide to the new food truck.

MANILA, Philippines - While 2011 overflowed with milk tea (word mutations to accommodate the word “tea” aplenty), and last year paid great attention to all things katsu and ramen, 2013 promises to pave the way for the food truck. I love mobile kwek-kwek carts as much as the next person, but these are the Formula 3 drivers of meal trucks we’re talking about here. At one point they existed just within the walls of my TV set, gracing the foreign food channels with their exotic fried Kool-Aid, red velvet pancakes, and sloppy cheesesteak sandwiches. The closest I could get to the food truck was through their distant relatives, five times removed: the corner Burger Machine stand and the Jollijeeps that line Metropolitan Avenue. So, it’s about time they crashed our sidewalks, really. Gathering every Friday to Saturday at Cucina Andare — the city’s first food truck market in Glorietta Park 3 — here are the city’s first few meals on wheels, making tracks to what will hopefully be a fresh new fleet to the food scene we know. :thankyou:

Hindi ko pa nakita yung modern food trucks na yan... Maganda sana ito kung kasing sarap din nung napapanood natin sa food network, na gourmet level na talaga kahit classified as "street food" sya. At sana ganun din kadami ang serving, kahit magmahal ng konti ang price basta busog ka naman. Unfortunately sa atin, parang hindi yata yun feasible kasi yung vehicle pa lang na puhunan mo magkano na, gas pa, permits or park fees, labor and even the ingredients may kamahalan din at tipid talaga ang servings. Feeling ko mas mahal pa ang food truck kesa kumuha ng maliit na pwesto, like mga bangketa na malapit sa mga malls or schools and offices.

If I'm not mistaken, yung Mercato is co-owned ni former Royal Tru Orange guy, RJ Ledesma? I think it’s successful kasi  captured nila yung market ng yuppies sa area as well as high-earning pero hindi snooty na executives. :)

Food truck by broosy

Run by Sensei Sushi’s Bruce Ricketts, the truck fuses Pinoy and Japanese (and a little Mexican) cuisines, and shovels out things like Sisig Rice Toppers (P160), Pulled Pork Soft Tacos (P165), and Spicy Ramen (P180). Find gold in their glazed Chicken Pops (P160), peppered by a substantial amount of nori salt. If Ricketts is working the truck that day, insist that he prepare the meal for you. It will definitely make a difference.

@ bajoyjoy, for budget friendly investor for this kind of business,maybe an old AUV like Tamaraw, Fiera, Anfra, Bida, L300 FB or just our own
PUJ will do. Konting modification at fabrication, may food van (truck) na. What do you think mga Ka PMTers.

Dapat super sarap yung food, kasi may added investment na van.  Noone really cares naman kung nag-jeep lang sila, basta masarap at mura!

Food truck by Shawarma bros

Their tagline reads “A different shawarma experience.” If it refers to the excessively friendly men that man the counter — easy on the eyes, if you’re curious — then, okay, I get it. Also, there’s the Lamb Steak Plate (P200) smothered in garlic yogurt sauce, which is great for a late night meal, inebriated or not. Good job, bros.

@ gang13, If i'm looking for different kind of venture, I will choose this food truck business. Just my suggestion mga Ka PMTers. :thankyou:

mga restaurants nga (lalo yung nasa malls) hardly meet the standard of resto-quality dishes, yung mga masarap nman masakit sa bulsa. so i think hindi mapagsasabay ang masarap at mura.. dun na ko sa 2pc pancakes ng mcdo na P50 with coffee vs pancake house's P180? kung iconvert yan into food truck, saang presyo kaya sila, P50ish or P200ish?

ang gusto kong madala dito sa pinas yung NY hotdog sandwiches. kahit hindi na food truck, kariton lang pwede na diba, basta generous serving and authentic sausages ang gamit. willing to buy at P120. :) #asa

good points raised by bjj. how to bring down the cost na maafford ng masa ang challenge ng food truck (for it to flourish as a niche). can they beat carinderia prices? kung ang target customers e higher than the masa, I think fad lang ito in the long term. laki ng investment for mobility and "cool" factor, bibili ka ng jeep, refabricated etc., thats how many hundred thousand pesoses. samantala mga food stall franchises magkano lang, kumpleto na. yung natipid mo from the van/truck, gamitin mo n lng para mapasarap ang pagkain.. anyway, no harm in trying...

my guess, sa city hall ka magbabayad (business permits and park fees, unless private land ka magpwesto). i wonder, masusubject din kaya sila sa same health and safety standards and inspections as regular restos?

Mayroon na atang NY hotdogs, yung Sabrett ang brand.  Ok naman ang lasa, pero hindi ko alam kung nagclick dito.

Hungry rover

While the other trucks pop a side flap to open shop, the Hungry Rover invites you into their mobile dining area for the full experience. Plates of classic Pinoy comfort food comprise part of the menu, with things like Beef Tapa (P130), and chicken or pork barbecue (P95) on chili-hot rice.

Facebook: Hungry Rover

Twitter: @HungryRover

Tip: The rover comfortably fits eight people in total, so come early lest you run the risk of consuming your SurpRice (yes, it’s called that) on the curb by rover's tires.

They have twitter and facebook account, maybe they can answer our queries.

Guac truck

Make your own Mexican concoction. Choose your base (soft taco, wrap, nacho, rice, or salad bowls), pick your meat (ground beef, honey-glazed chicken, or carnitas), and top it off with any of their six toppings. Funny, though, that for a truck named after guacamole, the beautifully green mush is nowhere on the menu.

Facebook: Guac Truck

Twitter: @Guactruck

Tip: For every 10 of their eco-friendly, origami-style food bowls returned, Guac Truck will give you one meal on the house.

For Mexican food lovers...
