As the capital’s pop-up restaurant scene is developing, the options for a quick bite, either during the work day lunch-break or at a pastime, are multiplying. From burgers to sweets, here is a round-up of Bucharest’s food trucks.
Burger-themed food trucks are among the first launched and most popular with local foodies. Burger Van doesn’t have a fixed location but you can check their Facebook page to see where you can find them. They claim their “young urban food” concept from the urban scene of large European capitals. Another burger food-truck is Urban Burger. They also sell hot dogs and make home deliveries. You can find them from time to time at various festivals in Bucharest or in the country. You can check their site for the menu and their location.
Known to Romanian audiences from Hollywood films, the bagel was invented in Poland. This is what the Sunday Bagel explains and sells out of their food truck in Pipera. The truck sells over 15 varieties of bagels, ranging from sweet to salty, and you can customize them by seeds, topping and crunchiness.
On the sweet side of the mobile food world sits Creperie D’amour. Their menu includes salty varieties also and they are present at various corporate, and other, events with their Le Bar a Crepes catering concept. They either deliver the pancakes ready-made or organize a do-it-yourself version, where guests can fill the crepes on their own. Otherwise, you can find them in the Old Town of Bucharest, starting mid-April. Also in the Old Town is Sanoberry. The frozen-yogurt place changes flavors weekly and sugar-free ones are available as are smoothies and fresh juices.
For a bite of langos, the traditional snack made of deep-fried flat bread with various fillings, you can check Mr Langos, currently located close to the Alexandru Ioan Cuza park. And for another meaty experience you can return to the Old Town at the Würstelstand. This ‘sausages cart’ is parked on Lipscani, close to the Central Bank building and retails six types of sausages and several to-go side-dishes.
Close by you will also find the Food Hood, Bucharest’s first street food market, opened for the first time this year. Here you can try quesadilias, wraps, veggie burgers, salads and other goodies.
