Food Truck Mania: An Extensive List of Bangkok Food Trucks (Part 2)
There is a certain lure to eating outside of an air-conditioned box – it is easy, cheap, and often very satisfying. Bangkokians have been fortunate to enjoy this “luxury” of cheap easy access food for a very long time – from that oozing egg noodle spot that everyone who goes to Ekamai knows about, to the ever reliable “Chai 4 Mee Giew” noodle carts that normally reside in front of your local 7-11s – street eats not only leave your stomach full, but often time also have a special place in your heart. But just like anything else, good things evolve. We know you loved your Nokia 3210, but look at what you can do now with your iPhones.
So as much as we love our old aunties and uncles who made us our late night noodles from their push carts, it is now time to give the next generation a chance – make way for the noodle carts of 2016: food trucks.
We understand that trying to locate all the food trucks in this bustling city is not an easy task. Lucky for you, our extensive effort to create a food truck archive has been completed and we are excited to share it with you. We hope you enjoyed part 1 of this list and have already filled yourselves up, now here is part 2 of our list below in no particular order.
11) Hotdogs & Buns
There is no longer a need to go to New York City to enjoy a proper hotdog from the street corners. Hotdogs and Buns and their amazing grass-fed frankfurters are helping you satisfy that desire right here in Bangkok. Not so much a food truck but rather a food cart, these juicy dogs together with an assortment of toppings may be some of the best dogs you have had anywhere.

12) Pizza Massilia
Using the word “truck” for Pizza Massilia might be an understatement. Their moving kitchen looks more like a container being dragged around.
