Brussels is an eclectic city, that bursts with life, new ideas and events. And even though you may think you discovered everything about it, the city will always surprise you with new initiatives and proposals. For instance, since October a food truck trail has been set up in 20 sites of the Belgian capital. The initiative will last until the end of the month, giving you the chance to travel the World and taste its incredible dishes without leaving your neighbourhood. Whatever you look for, you will probably find it: sea food, Asian meals, Italian dishes, Lebanese falafels or French crepes will be available across Brussels.
The food truck system has been very popular over the last years. To make your experience unique and tasteful, the municipality decided to offer the nomad restaurants involved the possibility to sell their food on street only if they met some requirements: the dishes have to be both healthy and original. It is the ideal solution if you are investing in your health and in the quality of the food you buy.
The authorities also requested the food trucks to be in line with the urban landscape: the mobile restaurants should not induce any unfair competition for the local producers working around them.
If the idea intrigues you, visit some of the strategic sites in Brussels that are hosting the food trucks, such as Porte de Namur, Square de Meeûs, Place Poelaert or Rue Neuve, and check the online program to discover which dishes are offered day by day.
