Thanks to our sunny weather, our mix of many cultures and the availability of large parking lots, Miami has passionately embraced the food truck phenomenon. From single trucks that park next to an office building, to giant cuisine caravans that gather in public parking lots, food trucks are now a permanent part of the Miami landscape.

The menus are as varied as Miami’s local population. Cuban hamburgers, gourmet Vietnamese, fish tacos, dim sum, grilled cheese, gelato – if you’re craving it, you’ll find it served from a truck somewhere in Miami. Social media sites like Twitter and Facebook are the best way to get updates on food trucks’ schedules and whereabouts. Some gatherings have a regularly scheduled time and place. Others are more ad hoc (owing mainly to struggles with code compliance in Miami-Dade County). Miami Beach currently prohibits food trucks, but this may change in the near future.

Despite code compliance issues, Miami food trucks are here to stay. Before you go, be sure to check Facebook or Twitter to make sure the food truck gathering is happening at its usual time and place.
