Foodies are, by nature, experimental folks. We’d try anything once and some things even more than once. Especially, if they’re coming off a food truck. Mobile food places are not really new to India (who remembers the chaat wala on the streets in most of northern India? Or the jhaal muri guys in Kolkata? Or the early morning coffee and idli peddlers in Mumbai?)

But food trucks have taken the game up a notch, especially in Bangalore. The city is already known for its eclectic food scene and now food trucks churning out everything from exotic peri-peri prawns to desi keema pav are adding to it. And foodies are loving all the innovative dishes.

So when you get a sudden bout of hunger and don’t really want to break the bank, which food truck do you go to? Here’s our list!
