Of the many things Noida is known for, food tops the list and for all the right reasons. If you are on a diet, the city will force you to make every day a cheat day and if you are not, then you are in for a never-ending feast. Aromas that tickle your senses waft through the bustling streets of Noida, where food is nothing less than pure dope for any gallivanting gastronome. And guess what? Making a table reservation and eating at a stationary venue is an outmoded thing here. The newest trend in the city is – yes, you guessed it right – food trucks!
Well, the concept of mobile eateries is not really a new phenomenon for many of us. We have always had food vendors who, with their make-shift cart, magically appeared every evening at some corner of our streets, cooking and selling bhajis and omelets and dosas and what not! The food trucks and mobile eateries in Noida are offering a modern, twist to this endearing phenomenon. Rising steadily in popularity, these trucks are where lip-smacking, finger-licking, tummy-tingling food is dished out at affordable prices. They exist everywhere, from parks and residential streets to corporate premises and commercial venues, offering treats of North Indian, South Indian, Lebanese, American, Thai, Chinese, Japanese, Mexican, Italian, and other origins.
