Boutique food vans are popping up across the country and Suffolk is no exception – with a dispersed population living far from major centers, it makes sense that the restaurant would come to you.
Here are seven of the best food trucks based in Suffolk.
1. Pete’s pizza
Launched in 2017, Pete’s Pizza initially expected to throw a weird event, but ended up hosting a lot of private events and parties.
These are simple staples – pizzas filled to order and cooked in 90 seconds, with vegan cheese and gluten-free bases available so they can accommodate everyone.
Throughout the summer, Pete’s Pizza is based at the Shottisham Campground, serving both campers and the general public, though he’s also ready to host events.
Learn more on his facebook page.
2.Good army of food
Installed in a custom-made 1973 Icecream truck, the Good Food Army is ready to undertake any operation to free your taste buds.
Serving delicious ice cream and homemade sweets, this Lavenham-based food truck has two regular routes, from Lavenham to Honington on Monday evenings, and from Honington to Ixworth, via Barningham.
More details about the van, which also hosts events and festivals, can be found on its facebook and website.
3. The mobile pizzeria
Providing sourdough pizzas, topped with real Italian ingredients, the mobile pizza company comes highly recommended for private parties, corporate events, and just for eating street food.
However, the mobile pizzeria also serves food at party halls across the county.
Find them on their facebook and their website.
4. Frida’s food box
Run by husband and wife team Pete and Alfie, Frida’s was inspired by Alfie’s vegan chili.
When they got married Alfie cooked her chili and it was great to have a dish that vegetarians, vegans and meat eaters could all enjoy.
Now they’re serving vegan chili, along with vegan chorizo and pickled pink onions.
Contact Frida’s foodbox on facebook.
5. Laurel pizza
Not content with exclusively serving wood-fired pizzas, Bay Tree branched out, offering paella and salad alongside slices.
The mobile catering company recently released a special festive pizza, featuring roast chicken (“because, be honest, it’s better than turkey”), stuffing, and pigs in blankets.
Find them in their usual place, next to the Bell Inn in Kesgrave or contact them on facebook.
6. Hamburger wings and ribs
Based on a double-decker bus, the Burgers Wings and Ribs launched in June 2020 and have already exploded across the region.
Selling their trio of meat-based snacks, the Burger Wings and Ribs boys spread to four locations in Suffolk and Essex and reached the national take-out awards final.
Find them outside the Duke Pub in Ipswich, IP4 2QP.
