Food trucks are popping up all over and have proven to be a popular choice when it comes to grabbing a bite. Whether you’re after a hearty meal or a cup of quality coffee, here’s our round up of Johannesburg’s tastiest food trucks.

Roaming Grind Coffee Co.

Roaming Grind Coffee Co., a family run business, is a mobile coffee shop serving espresso-based drinks, and known especially for their amazing frappuccinos. To get your caffeine fix find them at markets and other events all over the city, or better yet, book them for a private function.

Balkan Burger

Balkan Burger is all about adding a twist to traditional Serbian cuisine, with the Original Balkan Burger as their signature dish. Served in folded ‘somun’ bread (similar to a pita) and topped with delicious vegetables and a salad mix, this is street food at its best!

The Knickerbocker Ice Cream Company

The Knickerbocker Ice Cream Company is all about, you guessed it, artisanal ice cream, sorbet and frozen yoghurt. That isn’t, however, where the fun stops – they also serve waffles, pancakes, milkshakes, wine popsicles and sundaes. They’re the first of their kind in South Africa and their fixed parlour can be found in The Stables Village Market in Broadacres.

Bearded Fella

This is pizza like you’ve never tasted before. Bearded Fella uses imported Italian flour and homemade Napolitana sauce (made with a whole bottle of white wine) to set their menu apart from the rest. Find them on Friday’s during lunch time at The Hoods in Sandton and check out their website for upcoming events.

Treat – The Gourmet Beverage Company

Treat, previously known as Full of Beans, serves everything from coffee to frozen yoghurt, mocktails, bubble tea and cold pressed juices. This is the place to go to quench your thirst. And while you’re at it, don’t skip out on their ginger beer and lemonade.

Eat, drink and be merry

The Brohemian

A proper wood fire inside the truck means that The Brohemian puts together some of the most mouth-watering pizzas – from classics to inventive concoctions. They serve the crowds at First Thursdays in Rosebank as well as at events around the city.

Chilli Chef

We’re talking a whole smorgasbord of delicious meals when it comes to Chilli Chef. The brainchild of Chef Dalmain Samuel, who’s worked all over the globe, this food truck serves Indian inspired dishes that bring the heat. Expect bunnychows, burgers and more!

Culture Kitchen

Culture Kitchen feeds hungry festival goers around the country. Their menus change regularly and patrons will find everything from BBQ pulled pork buns to eggs Benedict, as well as more refined items, ideal for private events.

The team

The Filthy Moustache

Gourmet burgers and hotdogs is the name of the game when grabbing a bite to eat from The Filthy Moustache. Think the crispiest bacon you’ve ever had, loads of melted cheese and sauces galore.

Maison Belge

Maison Belge brings the best of Belgium to Johannesburg – from waffles to frites (made from Belgian potatoes) and even beer, this is a one-stop shop for everything you need to fill your hunger.

Imbuzi Café

From traditional style hamburgers to more inventive meals, Imbuzi Café has something for everyone. Their eland burger is a great combination of South African flavours. For those who like something more spicy, try the burrito. Find Imbuzi Café once a month at the Deep Roots Night Market in Pretoria and keep an eye on their Facebook page for event listings in Johannesburg.
