There are many food trucks in Bangalore
specialising in pizza, however, As On Fire stands apart for its generous toppings cooked in a wood-fired oven. Founders Nishanth Rajkumar and Vindya Murthy were inspired during their visit to Cambodia, where they spotted a street-side vendor serving pizza prepared in an electric oven. Grab their acclaimed Barbecue Chicken Pizza or try the classic paneer tikka or chicken tikka pizza. The food truck also has a ‘Mine Mine Mine’ option that allows for customisations. Order their chicken wings and charcoal barbecue for some side options.

Try the Monsieur Le Goff, a sandwich made of fresh prawns and homemade aioli or the Monsieur Martin, which comes with bacon and béchamel. Complement the meal
with delectable sides like French fries and gazpacho soup. Make sure to save some room for dessert since their crème de la crème (homemade caramel cream made with salted butter and biscuits) is absolutely divine.
