In the transient world of food trucks, a buzzy newcomer seems to roll up every other week. Meanwhile, Roti Roti has been a mainstay for more than 15 years. You’ll most often see the trucks at farmers markets, including every weekend at the Ferry Building. Despite the volume of its business—Roti hits as many as 46 markets a week—the mobile chicken chain still sources its meat and produce from local farmers: garlic from Gilroy, lettuce from Bolinas, and Mary’s free-range chickens from the Central Valley. Though the truck made a name for itself on its rotisserie chickens—you can watch them twirling on the back of the truck—the heritage-breed porchetta has since become market favorite. In particular, the crispy porchetta sandwich, served on an Acme Bakery roll with homemade onion marmalade and fresh arugula, has earned a cult-like following.
