November 2019: Early this decade it seemed that restaurants would no longer exist in non-mobile form. Food trucks were sweeping the nation, bringing everything from burritos to Bahn mi to street corners everywhere. That craze seems to have died down to some degree, with the most successful trucks branching out to brick-and-mortars, including Ms. Cheezious, which recently opened at Time Out Market Miami, and El Bagel, which soon opens its first shop in the Upper Eastside. La Pollita followed a similar trajectory, with its owners closing the truck to focus on their first restaurant, Boia De. Though you can still find some fantastic options on wheels in Miami, like newcomer Chifa Streets located at Veza Sur’s courtyard for optimal hangover prevention.
Food trucks? Miami has plenty of them. It’s one dining trend this city can’t get enough of (along with, of course, the brunches in Miami). Roving restaurants are the barometer of a city’s food scene. Big name chefs might open concepts in trendy neighborhoods, but skyrocketing rents have forced the real culinary creatives to turn to food trucks, where they create everything from the best desserts in Miami to tacos that rival those from the best Mexican restaurants in Miami. These days, hitting a Miami food truck rally on a Saturday night gives you more inventive options than an entire season of restaurant dining—for half the price.
