Ok, so radishes are an underappreciated vegetable in the United States. However, the Randy Radish is working to change this. Not only do they sell a variety of radish-based food, they also have a fun slogan – “Bringing sexy back one veggie at a time!” This Washington DC area food truck is the first in the area that is completely vegan. From baked goods to delicious sandwiches, everything on the menu is meat-free, and many items are also gluten-free.
2. The Grillenium Falcon
Are you a Star Wars fan? This food truck is sure to tickle your fancy. The truck features a number of sandwiches with movie-themed names. Keeping with the Star Wars theme there is a Cheebacca sandwich, which offers white cheddar, pulled pork, bacon, garlic cilantro sauce, and a house cheese. However, other movies are featured as well, with the Jack to the Future sandwich as well as East of Edam. Along with the fun foods and punny names, the van features awesome 70’s style art on the side.
3. Eire Trea

It’s not uncommon for food trucks to mix different cuisines. There are trucks that combine Mexican and BBQ or even stranger combinations. However, one of the strangest out there is Eire Trea, which combines Irish and Eritrean food. The founders of the trucks were born and raised in these two countries, and decided to bring the delicacies of each together. If you’re in the mood for fries, you’ll be able to choose from Curry Chips, from the Eritrean cuisine or Bangers and Chips.
4. Maximus Minimus

The Seattle-based food truck features pulled pork and veggie sandwiches, as well as a number of sides. The food will warm your belly, and the truck will ignite your imagination.
