Top Edmonton food trucks to chase after

Food trucks serve up good food to go, plus they often come to you! But even if these trucks don’t stop directly in your neighbourhood, you’ll want to hunt them down. Food truck season in Edmonton runs April to October, giving you plenty of time to try all of these amazing mobile eateries.

Attila the Hungry (Food Truck)

1
99th Street and Jasper Ave, Edmonton, AB T5J 2G8

This food truck puts an Asian-flavoured spin on traditional favourites, such as chicken and waffles, peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, burgers and hot dogs. There’s a Red Seal chef behind the wheel (he also graduated from the NAIT culinary program), bringing his passion for Asian food to Edmonton. Asian accents range from Thai peanut butter and honey sriracha sauce atop hamburgers, to spicy coconut sauce on hot dogs and hoisin aioli and braised duck legs mixed in with crispy tater tots.

Dedo's (Food Truck)

St Albert, AB T8N 1N1

One of Edmonton’s most popular dishes goes mobile with this shawarma food truck. They serve up the standard chicken and beef shawarma alongside shawarma poutine and Philly cheesesteaks. If you’re craving veggies, go for the fattouch or tabouleh salads. They make their own garlic sauce (swoon!) and baba ghannouj (grilled eggplant dip) in-house, as well as fresh lemonade with mint. They even have some gluten-free options, which is rare for a food truck! The shawarma salad and kafta salad are both gluten-free.

Little Village Catering Co.

Edmonton, AB T5J 2G8

This food truck serves up authentic Greek cuisine from Chef Theo. The truck menu is simple but delicious: lots of lamb dishes, plus their classic chicken souvlaki wrapped in a pita. Little Village also serves up one vegetarian dish: falafel pita (chickpeas are so much tastier than they have any right to be) and lemon potatoes.

Dolce & Banana

Edmonton, AB T5J 2G8

Honestly, I love this food truck mainly for its name (a clever play on design house Dolce & Gabbana). If you didn’t instantly get that joke, you don’t deserve to eat here anyways. They serve up soup, panini and Italian desserts that are almost as beautiful as their inspiration’s Italian fashion designs.

Smokehouse BBQ (Food Truck)

2
10812 124 Street NW, Edmonton, AB T5M 0H3

The brand started as a food truck in Nisku, serving up their signature bacon bombs (Italian sausage meat wrapped in bacon and smoked to perfection) and slow roasted brisket to workers in the industrial area. The truck continues to bring its pulled pork and burnt ends sandwich (twice-smoked brisket) to events around Edmonton and the surrounding areas. And people line up for miles for those famous bacon bombs during events like Taste of Edmonton.

Eva Sweet

3
10847 65 Ave NW, Edmonton, AB T6H 1V8

Waffles to go? Eva Sweet makes it work by wrapping their dense, sweet and piping hot Liege waffles wrapped in paper, making for a utensil-free snack you won’t want to miss. The truck is always sizzling with the sweet smell of vanilla, with the waffles coming in vanilla, Canadian maple or cinnamon flavours. Do it right and get yours dipped in white, milk or dark chocolate – if you’re going to eat a sweeter waffle, you might as well commit!

Drift (Food Truck)

Edmonton, AB T5M 2G3

Voted best food truck by Avenue magazine multiple years in a row, Drift is definitely the king of the food trucks in Edmonton. Their pork belly sandwiches come on buns specially made by a local baker and come with pickled carrot, daikon, cilantro and chili mayo. They also serve up weekly herbivore and carnivore specials, buttermilk fried chicken and roast beef sandwiches. Ketchup is made in-house and sold alongside jars of Drift spice, which goes great with fries and various meats.

In April 2016, Conde Nast Traveler's Readers' Choice Awards for the Best Pizza in the World: The Top 14 Cities for Pizza placed Edmonton at number eight on the list. With a diverse number of fantastic pizzas to choose from, including hand-tossed, wood-fired pies with white or red sauce and fun toppings ranging from pineapple to pine nuts, you're sure to find one you adore. Buon appetito!
