The menus are as varied as Miami’s local population. Cuban hamburgers, gourmet Vietnamese, fish tacos, dim sum, grilled cheese, gelato – if you’re craving it, you’ll find it served from a truck somewhere in Miami. Social media sites like Twitter and Facebook are the best way to get updates on food trucks’ schedules and whereabouts. Some gatherings have a regularly scheduled time and place. Others are more ad hoc (owing mainly to struggles with code compliance in Miami-Dade County). Miami Beach currently prohibits food trucks, but this may change in the near future.
Despite code compliance issues, Miami food trucks are here to stay. Before you go, be sure to check Facebook or Twitter to make sure the food truck gathering is happening at its usual time and place.
