The Coast’s Halifax Food Truck Party has come and gone as of September 15th, but that doesn’t mean you missed your chance at some of Halifax’s best meals on wheels! It may have been the last food truck festival of the summer, but there are still plenty of delicious options in and around Halifax to try out while the weather’s still warm.
Below are some of our favourites, so grab your friends, your appetites and get eating!
1. Ol’ School Donuts // Dartmouth
If you’re looking to satisfy your sweet tooth while taking a trip back to the good ol’ days, this truck is for you. Delicious flavours like maple and Boston cream keep crowds coming back for more.
2. Halifax Press // Halifax
Let’s face it, it’s impossible to not love grilled cheese sandwiches, and these guys take them to the next level, with their classic choice featuring three different cheeses, while their “Big Business Club” boasts two whole layers of sandwich.
3. The Food Wolf // Halifax
Food Wolf is hard to describe, mostly because its food ranges from Korean and Taiwanese to vegan comfort food. But trust us when we say, they know what they’re doing.
4. Gecko Bus // Bayer’s Lake
Always the fan favourite with their crazy exterior, Gecko Bus’s build-it-yourself approach to Mexican food works in such a way that no matter what you put on your taco or in your burrito bowl, it will always taste amazing.
5. Rustic Crust // Halifax
Here you were thinking you need to go to some fancy sit-down restaurant if you want authentic Italian wood fired pizza- think again. Their wood fired oven is literally inside the truck, and with delicious vegetarian, meat and gluten-free options, you’re sure to find something you love. Our mouths are watering just thinking about it.
6. Jamaica Lee Style Cuisine // Dartmouth, NS
There’s no question about it, Jamaica Lee Style Cuisine delivers every time. Their most popular item on the menu is their famously delicious jerk chicken, but don’t miss out on the oxtails and meat patties.
7. Nomad Gourmet // Halifax
In the mood for some locally sourced comfort food? Nomad Gourmet has got your back. Whether it’s a burger you want, or some Fireball oatmeal to help you get you through the morning (yes, there is literally Fireball whiskey in the oats!), you can be sure that all the ingredients are fresh and health-conscious.
8. Bud the Spud // Halifax
This place was established in 1977, and it’s been a hit since day one. Their fresh hand cut French fries and ever-popular fish and chips are the perfect hangover food, and the owners are some of the friendliest you’ll find, making the whole experience that much better.
9. Soup’s On The Move // Dartmouth
It might still feel like summer out there, but the cold weather approaching, and this truck is the place to be. Their fresh homemade soups are on rotation daily and you can trust that you’ll always find something you like, be in a classic like chicken noodle and seafood chowder, or something a little more out there like Rockin Moroccan or sweet potato chipotle.
10. My 3 Cousins // Halifax
If you’re a Dalhousie student, you’ve seen these guys around. Located right in the heart of the Halifax campus by the quad, M3C is a great place for students to stop for lunch or after class since it's affordable, convenient and delicious!
