    Now Make Me A Sandwich Detail Page >

    The sheer variety of sandwiches on offer here make this a must visit for any tourists or locals who happen to be in the area. Their reubenator is a take on the classic Reuben sandwich. Corned beef, Swiss cheese, coleslaw and a Russian dressing are served on a thick roll as opposed to rye bread. The seasonal thanksgiving sandwich made with all your favorite leftovers is possibly the crème of the crop here. Generous servings of turkey, dressing and cranberry sauce are crammed into a roll. Their chipotle macaroni salad is a wonderful side dish that can be added for just a few dollars more. If you want to keep things simple then go for the grilled cheese which is stellar.

    This Vietnamese and Filipino inspired food truck is another on the list of young upstarts to the Seattle dining scene. Prices here are on the extremely low end which make this incredible value for money. You can’t go wrong with the banh mi served with either roast pork or lemongrass chicken. At just $6 it’s an absolute steal. The filipino chicken adobo fried rice is sublime and it’s worth adding a fried egg on top to make it extra indulgent. For vegetarians, they serve a wonderful banh mi with lemongrass tofu as the main protein.

    Creole food at low low prices in the Pacific Northwest. Jemil’s is bringing the soul to Seattle’s food truck scene. All your favorite Southern dishes are represented here. The shrimp po’boys come with generous amounts of fried shrimp and are as good as any you will find in New Orleans. Try the Cajun shrimp with veggies if you like your food spicy, the Louisiana hot peppers really pack a punch. The fried okra is a great side dish and uses an often left behind ingredient. Specials such as the blackened catfish served with rice and beans really help elevate the whole experience. You can expect a hearty meal at reasonable prices, and some of the friendliest service anywhere in Seattle.

    This Caribbean inspired establishment is yet another great addition to Seattle’s food truck dynasty. The jerk steak sandwich served with grilled seasoned beef is a good introduction to what’s in store here. Sides like fried plaintains keep the experience as authentic as possible. You can’t go wrong with the signature jerk chicken which is served with rice and coleslaw. The chicken is tender while packing a spicy punch and is as goof as any you would find in Jamaica. The Orient plate served with a slow cooked pork is another standout dish and worth ordering if you fancy a change from the norm.

    The name says it all here. There simple menu of a few sandwiches and a soup option is what makes them so special. The grilled cheese here is absolutely sublime and is one of the best you will find anywhere in the entire country. The blended cheese serving is huge, the bread is fresh and perfectly toasted. The sandwich goes perfectly alongside a coup of their fresh tomato and basil soup. Check out their unique condiment bar which contain 6 different dipping sauces for your sandwich including curried ketchup and black pepper sriracha. They make their own apple cider seasonally and it’s well worth sampling during the cold winter months.

    British inspired fish and chips are the order of the day at Nosh, the bright green Anglo themed food truck. The fish is always fresh and deep fried to perfection in a house made beer batter. Served alongside thick cut chips and mushy peas, it’s the perfect meal to warm you up on a cold winter’s day. If you are not in the mood for fish and chips, there’s a number of other great selections to be had. Try the fried rabbit with chips and a purple cabbage coleslaw for a fun take on a classic. Try the bone marrow as well, it’ll be the best bone marrow you’ve ever had from a food truck.

    Another Vietnamese based entry to the list. Curbside serves up some of the most authentic banh mi you will find outside of Vietnam itself. The deli meat banh mi with eggs, pickled vegetables and pate is quite sublime and the chili sauce gives it an extra kick. Grab some egg rolls on the side and you have a great meal for under $10, which is getting increasingly harder to come by these days. Rice lovers should spring for their combo pork plate which comes with grilled pork, veggies and steamed rice. Their pho is made with a decadent broth that has been slow cooked for hours and hours. The brisket falls apart in your mouth and is really is a stellar bowl of soup.

    This is probably the most legit BBQ truck in the whole of Seattle. Beef ribs, pork shoulders and even elk meat adorn the menu here. It’s barbecued to perfection before being served alongside a host of all your favorite sides. The ribs are fall off the bone tender, as is the pulled pork which is marinated in a unique blend of spices. Coleslaw, cornbread and everything in between help your meal along and really rounds out the experience. The jalapeno bacon cornbread in particular is well worth trying. The space is fun and welcoming and fun activities like giant jenga make this a great place to spend a few hours.
