Keep on (Food) Truckin', Seattle
Collected by Stephanie Perry , AFAR Local Expert
Seattle’s food truck scene combines a casual walk-up setting and top-notch cuisine. From Marination’s Hawaiian-Korean fusion to Barking Frog’s smothered frog legs, there's no food so artisanal or elaborate that we can't stuff it into a truck and drive it around the city. You’ll find truck pods in downtown Seattle, South Lake Union, or Pioneer Square. Abandon all shame, order food from one truck, and eat it while waiting in line for the next.
