The OG Food Truck: Les Roulettes
The Islands of Tahiti have given the world a lot of popular ideas. This is the birthplace of the overwater bungalow, of surfing, the tattoo, and also … the food truck? Yep! Well maybe not officially, but dozens of years before food trucks became so popular, Tahiti was rocking the game with their "roulettes." These trucks, which serve everything from traditional island fare to cheeseburgers, pizza and even Chinese, can be found around Tahiti, but the greatest concentration is in Papeete, where dozens of the colorful trucks congregate at Vaiete Square. Come for dinner or dessert – there are even sweets focused trucks.
