Spam, Pony Burgers And Other Weird Food Trucks You Didn't Know Existed


Last week a Spam food truck hit the road for a three month-long trek to 12 cities across the country. According to Quartz, the Spamerican Tour is bringing high-end Spam dishes to a city near you.

GrubStreet calls the truck, which serves dishes like Coconut Spam Spears and Kimchi Spam Musabi Croissants, "the final nail in the coffin for the food truck trend." While this might be true, a Spam food truck kinda makes sense, since the vehicles celebrate the quirky, the cult favorite and the misunderstood (Schnitzel, anyone?).

Of course the Spamerican Tour isn't the only questionable food truck out there. Here are five more trucks that are catching our attention and raising eyebrows. What do you think: Have they nailed the food truck concept, or are they running the trend right off the road? Let us know where you stand!

  • 1 Pierogi Street
    An all-pierogi restaurant just opened in Brooklyn (hipsters rejoice!), so it makes sense that an all-pierogi food truck already exists. Pierogi Street's truck, the Pierogi Wagon, can be found roaming the streets of Chicago.
  • 2 Foodgasm
    So there's a truck called Foodgasm in Houston ... and it serves food like this Soft-Shell Crab Po' Boy and Wings & Waffles. The specialty? The "Screaming O's: Oreos dipped in funnel cake batter and deep fried." Too much? Just enough?
  • 3 The Kitchen Of The Unwanted Animal
    Facebook/Keuken van het Ongewenst Dier
    This Amsterdam-based truck serves pigeon, parakeet and "pony burgers." Wherever you fall on the horse meat debate, at least they're doing something original. More importantly, they're raising awareness about and combatting food waste.
  • 4 The Dump Truck
    You could do a lot worse than a dumpling food truck. But you can't do much worse than this name.
  • 5 Great Balls On Tires
    You gotta hand it to this LA-based meatball truck for the name. Or do you? Where do you draw the line on puns like this?
