Best Bay Area Food Trucks?

Tried looking for threads, so I apologize if this is repetitive.

My company, in Palo Alto, usually has Friday lunches catered. Last Friday we had the yummy MogoBBQ Korean Taco truck come around. We tweeted it to our 30K followers and had a lot of people come by to try it out. It was so successful that we thought it'd be fun to do this every Friday with a rotating line up of food trucks.

We are looking for high quality food of any ethnicity- as long as it's not the typical roach coach.

What are your favorite food trucks? Contact info is appreciated, but definitely not required. The name, or an approximation of the name IS required.

Thank you in advance!

  1. I'll give a shout out for Jon's Street Eats -

    I think his food would be classified as california/american? Everything I've tried from there has been good, especially the sandwiches. He makes ice cream too.

      Jon's grits and greens are fantastic, as is his grilled cauliflower which he doesn't seem to do much anymore.

      He also had a duck taco with pomegranate a few months back that was an eye opener.

      Definitely worth checking out if in the area.

    2. Sam's Chowdermobile roams around the peninsula. I'd inquire via their website to see if they can make a special stop at your office. I am hoping it's a large corporate type of place so they can cater to a lot of your employees.

      BBQ Kalbi another Korean truck. Frequents Sunnyvale and Mtn View.

      Also try Curry Up Now, but they tend to stick to Burlingame area.

      1. I'm gonna have to recommend AdoboHobo, for his awesome chicken adobo and recently he's been serving (pork) sisig tacos. This would be under Filipino cuisine,

        I know you already mentioned a Korean taco truck in your post, but I like Seoul On Wheels. They serve Korean-style tacos as well as stuff like kim chi fried rice.

        1. Taqueria Sinaloa (510) 535-1206 Great Mexican taco truck and they will travel
