Brussels Ketjep has spent the weekend at the Brussels Food Truck Festival, the biggest of the kind of Europe. The 4th annual incarnation of this culinary event was held this year at Thurn & Taxis, and featured 103 food trucks from 15 different countries. How about a tasting tour?
At the very least you had to admit there was a variety to suit every taste. Judge for yourself:
Asian, Moroccan, Armenian, Lebanese, Belgian, Breton, Northern French, Southern French, Alsatian, Irish, Italian, Creole, African, Thai, Vietnamese, Japanese, Venezuelan, Latino, Cuban, and Mexican foods — all these were represented.
Not to mention the humble hamburger, THE star of the festival. Multi-coloured breads, snail sliders, or gourmet burgers, modern fusion or classic, certain of the food trucks showed unbelievable creativity. We took the opportunity to say hello to our friends of the Bistrot Truk who inaugurated their new truck specialized in …. Belgian French Fries!
