Some of you might have picked up on the fact that I love food trucks. As a self-proclaimed foodie, I enjoy their assorted menus and also trying a variety of their menu items while visiting with the folks that are cooking it up on the trucks.
As we are hopefully heading into an early Spring, this is the perfect time to kick off the list for the best food trucks in Manhattan! This list covers everything from authentic Mexican to Beirochs and even hot donuts being cooked up for you daily at various food trucks in Manhattan, KS. The weather is perfect so get out there and soak up some Vitamin D and enjoy some great local food!
Frida's Mexican Food Truck is one of the newer food trucks in town and is becoming one of the local favorites. Their fresh and authentic Mexican cuisine keeps patrons coming back for more! Located off 3rd street, ordering is super easy through their Facebook page and normally orders are ready by the time you get there. Everything is amazing, but the one thing that you HAVE to make sure and order is a piece of her Chocoflan, it is a must! It is a perfect combination of Flan and Chocolate Cake! Seriously, yum!
Taqueria Los Burritos is located on the corner of Tuttle Creek BLVD and Kimball Avenue. You will often be able to tell when they are opened by the packed parking lot! They have some of the best tacos in town here, NOT KIDDING! While I have not ventured as far on the menu as I would have liked to, every taco on their menu that I have tried is delicious! I promise you can't eat just one!
Tasty Traveler Food Truck spends their time between Manhattan and Wamego. You can find their location by following their Facebook page. The Tasty Traveler Food Truck serves up a variety of dishes from Asian Lettuce Wraps, Fried Pickles, Shrimp Po Boys, and German Bieroch's which is a favorite of mine. Recently they have added Cookie which I fancy myself a coinsurer of so, that is next on my list to order as soon as I get a chance!
Antojitos Mexicanos El Sol is a Mexican Food Truck in Manhattan, KS located right off McCall Rd. Ever since they opened they have been packed! With a wide variety of authentic Mexican dishes like Elote, Tripe, and Chilindrinas O Duritos Preparados . They also have some amazing tacos and Huaraches! Antojitos Mexicanos El Sol also offers a variety of Churros in case you are craving something sweet!
The Varsity Truck opens to serve your late-night cravings. Located in Aggieville and right behind Varsity Donuts, I have said several times that I am so thankful this food truck was not open when I was in college. It would not have been the "Freshman 15" I would have gained. It would have been more like the "Freshman 40!" The Varsity Food Truck serves one of my favorite donuts the Opal, fresh corndogs, and also Mac-N-Cheese Grilled cheese sandwiches!!!
Jammin Jamaican Cuisine is a great spot for those who like "jerked" food or just looking for something on the spicier side! The first time I tried this the Jammin Jamaican Cuisine Food Truck was at our Coldwell Banker Real Estate Advisors Adopt-A-Dog event. Jammin Jamaican was gracious enough to join in the day's festivities and offer their services at our event. As soon as I had a chance I placed my order! I decided to try their Jerk Pork Burger with Fries! Did it have spice? Oh yeah!! Was it delicious? Oh, 100% YES!!!
While there are a few more that do come to town this list is for the locally based trucks. I did include some of the ones in the area that are also must try when they are either in town or nearby!
The Chef and I are based out of Junction City, Kansas, and is not only an amazing Chef but also a champion of promoting local businesses as well as other local eats!
Off The Hook, Seafood Truck is one of several trucks that travel nationally with some of the best fish and chips you have ever had! Follow them on Facebook to see when they will be coming to town next!
