Off the Rez
Seattle's first—and only—Native American food truck brings Blackfeet fry bread to the Emerald City. Top it with veggie chili, chicken chile verde, or 12-hour-smoked pulled pork for an Indian Taco piled high with lettuce and pickled red onions, then drizzled with cumin crema. Or press a meat patty between two slices for a Powwow Burger, paired with hand-cut, double-fried potatoes. Craving a lighter meal? Try the quinoa salad with a succotash of squash, sweet corn, and green beans, all smothered in romesco (a Spanish sauce of almond and red peppers). Finish with yet more fry bread, sweetened for dessert with toppings such as honey, Nutella, and strawberry preserves.

No Rez-ervations Needed
If you’ve never tried an Indian taco, it’s a taco truck experience you won’t want to miss. Soft, pillowy frybread circles are piled high with smoky BBQ pork, pulled chicken, and creamy coleslaw. Try a sweet frybread for dessert with toppings ranging from Nutella to mango. They also offer burgers and fries if you’re not in a taco mood (if such a thing is possible). Locations vary, though you can currently find them in Westlake Park downtown on Thursdays; check their website to see where they are on any given day.
