According to Comingsoon.com, a The Dark Knight Rises food truck has been spotted in New York City.
The truck features a decorative The Dark Knight Rises design, and this design includes a look at The Bat, Batman's newest vehicle.
The truck has no name thus far, but we'll see what happens with this food truck when The Dark Knight Rises comes out. It's meant to serve breakfast and lunch to Toy Fair attendees, but maybe after the movie comes out, other treats will appear on the menu. Who knows?
If you live in New York City, will you be keeping an eye out for this truck? Comment below and tell us what you think!

A question many food truck lovers such as myself may have is 'what do food trucks do during the winter?' I'm sure it is incredibly different all around the country, and from truck to truck, but the owners of several San Francisco food trucks have given us an inside look into what happens during the cold months.
Curry Up Now, an Indian curry truck, has the benefit of a restaurant to fall back on when the weather turns cold and rainy. Many trucks, such as Senor Sisig, try to land private events during the winter to continue generating sales. Chefs also use the winter to either think up new ideas to their menus or take a well-deserved break from their 7-days-a-week schedule.

Everyone's favorite San Francisco bacon-crazed food truck, Bacon Bacon Truck, has just settled at the Ashbury Market in Cole Valley.
Proprietor Jim Angelus will be selling breakfast and lunch to-go there. Some of their items will include coffee, breakfast sandwiches (with bacon of course), and perhaps some new experimental recipes we haven't seen from them yet. Three Babes Bakeshop will also be sharing the new space, so now is the time for a cupcake and a bacon egg and cheese sandwich in Cole Valley.
What do you think? Are you going to check out the Bacon Bacon Truck's goods at Ashbury Market, or do you prefer them on wheels? Comment below and tell us what you think!

Off The Grid, the popular San Francisco gathering of food trucks, has started using a new location. Unlike other locations, this Off The Grid spot will host trucks for lunch every day of the week at 2nd and Folsom in SOMA. This is great news for all of the folks that work around there, especially Wikia staff! To see the line-up of trucks, or to get more information, follow the link here to the article by SF Weekly.Read more >
Size does matter! Especially when you want to go green. The world's smallest food truck is Verts, a kabob truck in Austin, Texas, and it operates out of a smart car.
The owners of Verts worked with German engineers to fit all the necessities of a food truck into the teeny tiny smart car, and now the truck is popular not only for its delicious food, but for its sheer size!

Just when you think there's a food truck for everything, Avedano's Chuck Wagon appears in Hayes Valley. This food truck doesn't serve anything you eat on your way to work, but rather, raw meat you take on your way home to cook. On Fridays, in keeping with Catholic tradition, the truck also offers fish. Its specialty is the lardo burger, ground beef patties combined with pork fat for $9.50/lb.
The Chuck Wagon appears at 432 Octavia St., Tuesdays through Thursdays from 3 to 7 p.m., and Saturdays and Sundays from 11 to 7 p.m. While they currently only serve raw meat and fish, they have plans to sell cooked food in the future.
So, what do you think? Would you like to pick up some of The Chuck Wagon's meaty goodness for dinner later, or woul…

As a result of a legal dispute, the Bay Area food truck formerly known as the Brunch Box will now be known as Fogcutter. According to the truck's owners, the brains behind The Chairman truck (which also just changed it's name from "Chairman Bao") and the Eat Curbside truck, Brunch Box was forced to make a change because of a dispute with another Bay Area company. Originally, the pair renamed the truck "The Bandit Box", but after a month, that name didn't quite settle in, so they changed it to Fogcutter. If you have to ask what the heck the name Fogcutter is referring to, you have clearly never visited San Francisco.

It should be noted that everything about this truck will remain the same, such as the menu, and we here at the Food Truck Wik…
Chairman Bao, the popular bun truck in the Bay Area, has renamed and rebranded itself. Dropping Bao from its title, the truck is now known as The Chairman. The reason for this, explains head chef Hiroo Nagahara, is because he wants the truck to branch out, selling more than just buns. There will also be a second truck that will be hitting the streets starting around the new year. For more information, read the rest of the announcement made by Mobi Munch here.Read more >
Hapa Ramen, a pop-up restaurant in San Francisco, has found a location to open a permanent restaurant. Reports from Grub Street say that chef Richie Nakano has found room at 1527 Fillmore Street, right by State Bird Provisions. Nakano is excited about the new venture, especially with his plans to add sandwiches and other dishes to the menu. To read more about the announcement, check out Grub Street's article right here.

Adam Richman, of Man Vs. Food fame, recently hit up the Munchathon and talked about his favorite dishes that he tried. He started over at Fresh Fries because, as he says in the video, french fries are his favorite food. He then moved on over to Lobsta Truck to have one of their lobster rolls. He finished the day at The Lime Truck for tacos and carnitas french fries (He must REALLY like fries!) The full video, from the Travel Channel, can be found right here.
If you live anywhere near Austin, Texas, get yourself down to the lake this weekend for some delicious BBQ. If you're not from Texas, prepare yourself for a raging fit of food truck envy. To be fair, it's more like food barge envy, but the bottom line is that the food truck revolution has been taken to a whole new level thanks to Jamie Nelson and Kline Boyd, the owners of Double Trouble BBQ. What a breakthrough!
These young men, originally from Nebraska, have already left their mark in culinary history, giving the world its first amphibious restaurant, just months after the opening of the world's first amphibious ice cream truck in London. The Double Trouble BBQ barge drops anchor every weekend (weather permitting) in the Lake Austin Party …Read more >
In the past year, San Francisco's Off the Grid street food market has expanded an astonishing amount. It all started with a Friday evening food truck extravaganza at the Fort Mason Center, but has since expanded so massively that SF foodies can find an organized gathering of food trucks almost every day of the week. In fact these days, there is usually an Off the Grid event for both lunch AND dinner. National attention has finally been given to the enterprise, and it's creator Matt Cohen, with this insightful article in the New York Times. The idea for Off the Grid was started when Mr. Cohen found it impossible to open up his own (legal) ramen truck in the city. It became clear that there was a demand for streamlining the food truck busine…Read more >

If you live in San Francisco, you know this city is a hot spot for food trucks.
On any given night out, it's rare that you'll walk down the street without smelling the irresistible aroma of bacon-wrapped hot dogs; and on your lunch break at work, you might frequent food trucks like Le Truc, Bacon Bacon Truck, or Nom Nom truck. So needless to say, San Francisco is the place for food on wheels.
Now you can actually vote on your favorite San Francisco food trucks with the Eater's Choice Awards. Of course, taste is subjective, but some food trucks are so excellent that they've made it to the nomination round, and all you have to do is vote. Of course, it's best to try all the food trucks first!

Do you remember your old school bus? I, unfortunately, do. The cool kids would always sit in the back, the bus driver was never anything other than abrasive, and it was a virtual battleground for elementary school taunting. My school bus probably would have been a lot cooler if it were a mobile bar (although I'd have to wait till twenty-one to fully enjoy this). Someone has finally made this seemingly crazy dream a reality.
Introducing Brewtruc, a mobile bar that was originally a school bus. The owner is Hugh, the same guy who owns Le Truc, a super popular food truck in San Francisco. You can get whatever beers you want from this awesome beer truck. Finally! You can associate a school bus with something better than Bobby DeMario putting g…

The rapid growth of food truck scenes in major American cities seems like a recent phenomenon, but we cannot forget that food trucks have been around for ages. They may be the "hip" place to eat these days, but they started in the mid-19th century as a means for workers to get their meals quick and conveniently, because the "restaurant" could roll right up to the work site. The major difference now is the price and quality of the food. Early food trucks provided cheap meals with equally cheap ingredients, and presumably cheap tasting food. These days, as Flavorwire points out in their fantastic photographic exposé on the history of food trucks, you can not only get tacos and sandwiches from trucks, but gourmet treats like snail lollipops (…Read more >

Interested in digesting a Bombsicle? Then you better get yourself to the corner of 20th and Valencia in the Mission in San Francisco. Wait for the bright seafoam green truck where you will likely be greeted by Barbara Villegas. Villegas uses products from the farmer's market to create unique flavors of treats including limeade cucumber mint, strawberry ginger lime, and cantaloupe with almond milk.
She will also give you a private party filled with boozier treats including lavender mojito, sangria, and Long Islands.
The Bomb Truck, is open Friday-Sunday, 1-6 p.m., on 20th Street, at Valencia Street.
Have you ever tried any of the treats from this food truck? If so what do you recommend?

Last time I tried it (well - the last three or four times) the form was not working for me. No category section, though the note saying it was compulsory was there. And (or maybe because I hadn't added a category) the "Save" button did nothing when it was clicked (whereas the "Preview" button did its usual unsatisfactory thing).
Problem even with an existing page. And I thought that I might be able to click one of the "Edit" links to do just a section, but no - as with blog posts, section editing seems to be barred despite the inviting link.
What's unsatisfactory about the preview is that you can't see what categories the page is in (or will be in) and therefore can't (without considerable difficulty) check that they exist.

Despite the wide-spread popularity of food trucks, lawmakers aren't moving fast enough to accomodate the growing demand for mobile food businesses. In some areas such as DC, Chicago, and Atlanta, certain laws restrict the "freedom" of food trucks to mobilize their businesses as they see fit.
In Washington, one PR group has taken it upon themselves to fight the good fight on behalf of food trucks everywhere! Institute for Justice, a "libertarian public-interest law firm" based in Arlington "launched its new National Street Vending Initiative early this year in Texas and has since expanded it to Atlanta (where city officials had decided to reserve all public property for a single vending company) and Chicago (where aldermen have proposed rules…Read more >
Many hardcore lovers of bacon have tried bacon ice cream, but it isn't the kind of thing that's readily available or easy to find--until now, for Santa Barbara citizens. A new ice cream truck called Sugar & Salt Creamery has been founded in Santa Barbara, and one of their delicacies is bacon ice cream--specifically, maple brown sugar bacon. How delicious can you get? Their menu is constantly changing though, so if you want bacon ice cream, get to the Sweet & Salt Creamery truck now!

Want to run your own food truck? Today may be your lucky day. The SF Cart Project, run by Matt Cohen and Andrew Baber, is a group that is dedicated to helping new trucks develop in the San Francisco area. The group has recently published a book called Instrucktional, which aims to solve many of these basic problems. This 35 page book can be downloaded as a PDF and has all the forms and instructions that you should need to getting started. The book costs a hefty $340. While this may appear costly at first, Cohen points out that it would be the same thing and probably less expensive than hiring a consulting firm.

These days, food trucks can be found anywhere, from your favorite work pit stop to parks and plazas. Next stop for the food revolution? Sporting events!
First up to bat is Oakland Raiders, who finalized a deal with local food groups such as Oakland Mobile Food Group (OMFG) to bring at least 10 food trucks during the NFL season for Raiders's home games. The food trucks will rotate in and out of the games for varied options.
At the same time, Albany's Golden Gate Fields seems to have caught on to the idea as well. With attracting a younger crowd in mind for their horse racing events, Golden Gate Fields partnered with Off the Grid, the street food phenomenon, for one of the biggest food truck gatherings ever.

In a sea of delicious food trucks, have you ever thought that something was missing? Hint: It's pizza! Due to the overwhelming presence of pizza joints and its convenience, pizza has been largely overlooked by the food truck community, especially in San Francisco. But no longer!

Thus far, Casey's Pizza has been available at farmer's markets and select locations around the Bay Area as a "mobile pizza operation." They specialize in old-fashioned delicious pies, made entirely on-site and crafted using local, fresh ingredients. They also have a weekly pop-up at Upper Haight's Farmer's Market.

Presenting the "Pico de Gap" truck in San Francisco- the clothing franchise is celebrating its 1969 Fall denim collection and has partnered with Top Chef Ryan Scott, owner of the food truck 3-SUM EATS. To honor the 1969 denim collection, Scott is charging just $1.69 for two tacos and a drink. But wait--there's more!

Rochester mom Jessica Toner was a huge fan of shaved ice, but wished there was a way for her children to enjoy it without the preservatives and chemicals commonly found in the frozen treat. So thus began Snow Daze, Toner's food truck which sells all-natural shaved ice with locally grown ingredients, like concord grapes and peach. Her flavors are unique, like blueberry vanilla and peach oolong, and by using local ingredients (and even growing some of her own) she has revolutionized the way shaved ice is perceived in Rochester. No longer a junky carnival treat, shaved ice is now an organic and environmentally friendly snack.

Despite our love for food trucks, they're not allowed everywhere! The city of Raleigh, N.C., is debating allowing rules that would make it possible for food trucks to do business on private property as long as they met certain regulations and standards. Restaurant owners oppose this possibility, saying that they pay rent for their spaces, and don't want to compete with food trucks. To remedy this, Raleigh is considering a law that restricts food trucks from parking nearby a restaurant. So, will Raleigh enter the league of food truck cities? Let's wait and see.

Hollywood movie? Or food trucks? How about both? The now-famous Grillenium Falcon Food Truck, based on Star Wars, serves up some delicious grilled cheese in Arkansas. I must say how impressive it is that the truck manages to resemble the Death Star while retaining it's truck shape.

Dairy Queen; Taco Bell; Subway. Do they sound familiar to you? Of course; these have been stable fast-food franchises for as long as we can remember. Located in just about every city in America and many abroad, they represent the old-fashioned quick lunches and fixes that we're all familiar with. Yet, these options may just be getting phased out by the new convenient cuisine options about town: food trucks. Mobility, efficiency, speed AND interesting food options are the hallmarks of a great food truck. Do they taste good? And more importantly, despite the novelty of the cuisine, does it taste good? Yes.
This is why established franchises are jumping on the food truck truck. They're still in the conception stage and often used for catering …Read more >

Bacon is the type of food that polarizes foodies: it's either the murder of cute piggies or it inspires devout worship.
