Memphis is a food lovers paradise, and we're serving up more than just barbecue these days! Check out my three latest food truck adventures, and add them to your list of "must-eat in Memphis".
Mr. Frazier’s Fish Fry
I have two words for you: Crabby. Fries. I made my way over to this food truck because of the tempting smells of fried catfish, but would go back time and time again just for their crabby fries! This little piece of food paradise called crabby fries is a plate of french fries topped with cajun spices, smothered in homemade garlic and parmesan lump crab sauce, and topped with fresh Parmesan cheese. I promise you they taste as delicious as they sound! And the sides don't stop there. Other choices include perfectly crispy regular fries, tangy coleslaw, and fried corn. While you’re visiting the truck for their fries, make sure you do get a taste of their fried catfish, it was a perfect blend of crispy on the outside and juicy on the inside, just the way fried fish should be!
Street tacos, massive quesadillas, and nachos all cooked curbside, coming to you from the back of a trailer on a Blackstone grill! The kind employees of this food truck cheerily prepare made-to-order food that perfectly represents its namesake, a fiesta on wheels! If you see this food truck around town, I would highly recommend loading up on their tacos. I chose the Supreme Tacos, which comes with three tacos topped with your choice of meat, lettuce, tomatoes, and cheese on a flour tortilla. I can personally vouch for the fact that these are some of the best tacos in town! What to wash all these delicious tacos down with? Make sure you order one of their HUGE cups of homemade strawberry lemonade. It hits the spot perfectly when paired with their fresh, hot, and delicious fiesta on a plate!
This food truck is hard to miss, rolling through town like a huge Italian flag on wheels. While the truck is a stroke of creative genius, it's the food that will steal your heart. Pizza on wheels that’s ready to serve, hot and fresh in less than 10 minutes? That's amore! And this is what is waiting for you at the 9Dough1 food truck, which playfully gives ode to the zip code in which it rolls around town -- the 901! At this pizza truck, you’ll have a selection of options for a personal pizza from classics like cheese, pepperoni, sausage, veggie, and meat lovers, to local favorites such as BBQ chicken and buffalo chicken! My personal favorite is the buffalo chicken pizza, piled high with spicy chicken, cheese, buffalo sauce, and ranch dressing. No matter what you pick, you’re sure to be in for a treat with a stop at this pizzeria on wheels!
