Gastronomy on wheels: Since the economic crisis of 1998, Americans are wholeheartedly embracing the new culinary variety brought by food trucks. The origin of mobile gastronomic delight is in Southeast Asia and India, where mobile culinary businesses cater to customers of all strata.
In Bangkok, individual entrepreneurs move their mobile grills, pans and steamers every day to spots on well-frequented streets. Some keep their equipment on street corners, others move entire kitchens. Some have kitchens attached to their motorbikes, others to bikes, and others just roll them through the streets. Mobile food vendors in Bangkok are all competing on freshness, taste and originality, resulting in probably the best street food to be had anywhere. Unlike in regular restaurants, there is no freezer, thus ingredients are always local, fresh, and prepared right in front of you.
All it takes is a tolerant business climate and customers with a demanding palate.
