Rhode Island Cuisine gone Mobile

Rhode Island, a destination for food lovers, is known for its vast variety of restaurants and unique styles of cuisines, whether it’s a blend of traditional old New England foods or International and multicultural dishes reflecting the longtime immigrant communities. The culinary experiences of Rhode Island are not only limited to sophisticated and eclectic restaurants, cute cafes and eateries; you can also indulge in Rhode Island flavors while mobile in the colorful food trucks roaming around different parts of the state.

Whether it’s the farmers market on Blackstone Blvd or Dexter Park, attracting food lovers on Thayers street or at block parties by the beaches, you can track the whereabouts of some of these culinary “wheels” on Twitter or Facebook. We are all accustomed to one the oldest “mobile” restaurant founded in 1888 and located Downcity: Haven Brothers Diner. However, have you had a chance to try fresh and sophisticated tastes of other RI food trucks?  Here are some of my favorite picks. I hope you and your family will enjoy them as much as I do.

Chez Pascale/ Hewtin’s Dog Truck
“The Truck features our House Made Sausages, Cured Meats, Condiments and more. The Hot Dog Cart is seasonal and is equipped with our House Made Condiments.”
“RI’s original & most delicious grilled cheese truck.”
Like No Udder
“Like No Udder is not only about making history (we’re the world’s first all vegan soft serve ice cream truck).  We’re also about serving delicious products that just happen to be free of all animal products.  This includes dairy, eggs, animal fats and honey.’
Mama Kim’s
“Gourmet Korean BBQ. Everything about Mama Kim’s is local.  Awesome young chefs from Johnson & Wales cook our food the way it’s supposed to be cooked. Our logo and truck design were made by RISD students.”
