We love vehicles. We love to eat. Whether pushcart or Airstream, Mexican or Korean cuisine, we love the combination of wheels and meals. Here are ten diverse vehicles serving up hot meals.
There are just a few of the hundreds of delicious portable restaurants. What's your favorite truck, van, cart, wheeled-stall, motorcycle or otherwise mobile platform dishing out food?
Located in Playa Del Carmen, Mexico, the Sénor has combined two great Mexican products: the taco and the VW Combi, which was produced in Mexico until the mid-1990s. The story of Sénor Tacombi is one of a wandering soul/wrestler who marched across the Andes with Che, partied at Studio 54 with Freddy Mercury, and chilled with Gandhi in India. Today, he mostly served tacos to college kids who are looking to carb-up after a night on the town.

Fat Daddy's Ice Cream Truck
We'd never thought of giving the classic lowrider treatment to a GMC Ice Cream Truck, but the folks at Las Vegas' Fat Daddy's Ice Cream did just that. Painted in a creamsicle orange with white walls, the truck has four-way hydraulic control. Oh, and it serves just about any ice cream novelty you might want.

A trip to Austin's groovy South Congress would be wasted without a stop at Hey Cupcake! Peddling cupcakes out of a frequently shined Airstream trailer, a personal favorite, the cupcakes are simple and delicious. Some noticed that a pic of the trailer sneaked into our Mustang Bullitt review. Our fave is the Michael Jackson, which features a chocolate bottom with a cream cheese top.
