Ottawa's Best Food Trucks

Food trucks in the nation’s capital reflect the diverse cultures that call the city home. From South Indian to Korean, barbecue to halo-halo (Filipino crushed ice dessert), the collection of food trucks serves ambitious dishes that are either forward-thinking riffs on traditional flavours or accessible versions of eclectic fare for the masses. Here's a taste of the city:

Rico Peru Food Truck

Rico Peru Food Truck

Sample Rico Peru’s complex fusion of flavours through tangy lime-cured ceviche, made-from-scratch empanadas stuffed with ground beef and

hard-boiled egg and the arroz chaufa, a Chinese-influenced egg-fried rice with beef or chicken, green onions and bell peppers.

Angry Dragonz

Angry Dragonz

From General Tao’s chicken to Panang curries, this popular truck is known for crowd-pleasing Asian flavours with a twist. The eponymous Dragonz Bowl features rice topped with Asian slaw, Masago roe and sauce-drizzled skewers of grilled beef, chicken and lamb.

More Food Trucks To Try

The Caribbean Cruiser

Serving Caribbean-inspired food since 2013, The Caribbean Cruiser makes beloved dishes that include West Indian rotis, Jamaican patties, Bajan fish cakes and jerk chicken, served with rice and peas, fried plantains and slaw.

Ad Mare

Known for serving fresh, seasonal sustainable seafood year-round (including lobster specials in the summer), this truck draws long lines for its fish and chips: dry-battered Newfoundland cod or haddock. Pro-tip: go before noon, or order online before 11 a.m. to prevent lunchtime disappointment when dishes sell out.
