San Diego Has Food Trucks!

Gourmet food trucks have become a huge fad in LA. My UCSD colleagues will be pleased to know that San Diego has more than just kalbiQ as well. Frankly, there were more than I anticipated and I’m sure I missed a few. There are a good number that frequent the general area around UCSD that I’m going to have to chase down. There are plenty of others set up around office parks for lunch, malls, farmers markets, and of course bars late at night.

Follow them all on Twitter




KalBiQ serves korean bbq tacos, burritos, and fries. I wrote a review of their food in one of my earlier posts. The kalbiQ truck is pretty regularly in the UCSD area. It can be found around Regents and Nobel and other UCSD locations on most evenings. $1 Taco Tuesdays here are a favorite of mine, right off my shuttle stop.




Tabe is another truck modeled after the LA original Kogi. It similarly sells Korean BBQ tacos, burritos and fries. This truck roams all over San Diego and can often be found around UCSD, UTC, Sorrento valley, and Downtown. So following the Tabe Twitter feed is a must to catch it near you.



Food Junkie

This North Park truck has a diverse menu of fish tacos, grilled cheese, and hot dogs. Pretty much exactly what you’d want after a night at one of the bars they park by. They don’t seem to roam around as much as they also run a catering business.


MIHO Gastrotruck

The MIHO truck serves some really fancy burgers and sandwiches (full menu here). This is another truck that frequents the Sorrento Valley and UTC area, but also shows up around Downtown.


Joes On The Nose

This is a roving coffee truck that has a regular schedule and also offers a catering menu. My social media marketing colleagues will at least be interested in this truck’s avid use of Twitter.


Corner Cupcakes

Corner Cupcakes

Corner Cupcakes serves cupcakes from Sorrento Valley down to South Park. The also make stops around PB and Clairemont. Pay attention to their Twitter feed for deals.


Flippin' Pizza

Flippin’ Pizza

This North county pizza truck is often serving lunch around Sorrento Valley and Mira Mesa. Later at night it tends to be around Carlsbad and Encinitas. They also have several North county locations.


Chop Sooey Truck

The Choptruck is a fairly new arrival this year that spends a lot of time around Downtown / Gaslamp and Mission Valley. Their catering menu is pretty diverse with lots of Asian food as well as burgers and tacos.




This soon to open truck’s slogan “food so good, it’s bad.” rings true. Their menu is full of delicious sounding, if not healthy, options. One to watch for.
