The wheels keep turning on Warsaw’s foodie revolution – literally. Two years since the first food trucks rolled out onto the streets the capital’s appetite for meals on wheels shows no sign of slowing. That much becomes apparent at Żarcie Na Kółkach, possibly the most high profile of all the city’s truck meets.
Bringing together 40-odd vendors, there’s plenty of evidence of a market that’s maturing. Where once it was burgers and burgers alone, today the offer spans everything from Balkan to Greek via Vietnam and Japan. And yes, while burgers remains prominent it’s the shift towards Mexican that’s most notable – and no-one has done a better job of leading this Mexican wave than the fist-bumping, hip hop lads at Gringo. Widely recognized as the best Mexican joint in town, that they’ve now gone mobile and added a food wagon to their repertoire is good news indeed. Little wonder their queues are the longest. Of the other standouts, keep an eye out for Dutch-style waffles at Waffiezz and utterly magical slush drinks from Furosztron – summer’s never tasted better!
