Good news, Boston! Food truck-hopping season is about to begin. Starting next week, April 1, Boston’s best mobile eats will return to the streets with a new spring schedule and plenty of tasty food. The new season will also add quite a few food truck additions to our already diverse mobile eats choices.
So, hang in there. Warm weather, sunshine and delicious food trucks are on their way to the Hub this spring. And to prove it, we’ve listed five new food trucks that are sure to get you excited for the season.
North East of the Border
More Mexican food is coming to Boston! The new North East of the Border food truck will be serving authentic Mexican cuisine to the Greater Boston Area using locally-sourced ingredients. The truck was founded by Executive Chef and Chief Operations Officer Gustavo Lecanda and Chief Executive Officer Chris Wandell. Diners can expect plenty of tacos and Mexican sides like rice, beans and guac.
Lilo’s Plates, a new Hawaiian-inspired food truck, will soon be serving Loco Moco, Island Veggie Curry, and other island fare to Bostonians. Per Lilo’s, the truck itself is still a work in progress (hence the unfinished truck in the photo) but should be complete this April. Throughout the spring, the food truck will be at Boston Medical Center (Mondays), Commander’s Mansion in Watertown (Tuesdays), AthenaHealth in Watertown (Wednesdays), Dewey Square (Thursdays) and by the Back Bay T Station (Fridays).
A new juicery is coming in the form of a food truck this spring. But the healthy mobile eats, Boston ProJuice, is more of shuttle than a full-fledged food truck. In addition to juices, food truck hoppers can expect plenty of organic snacks like homemade granola bars, dehydrated veggie chips and fruit chips. The shuttle’s video with more information can be seen here. According to its Twitter account, Boston ProJuice will be at Copley Square (Mondays and Wednesdays), in Chinatown in front of the China Trade (Wednesdays), the Financial District (Tuesdays and Thursdays), and at BU (Tuesdays).
Starting this spring, a burrito truck will be added to the mix. Sabrosa Taqueria, a brick-and-mortar restaurant which opened last year in Downtown Crossing, is launching a food truck with plenty of taco, burrito and quesadilla options. Bostonians can expect to see the truck on the Greenway at Congress Street (Mondays), the Greenway at High Street (Tuesdays), Opera Place off Huntington Avenue (Wednesdays), and Stuart Street between Dartmouth and Trinity Place (Fridays).
