Houston has no shortage of great food trucks, and a crop of exciting newcomers is set to take the city’s roving eatery scene by storm. In addition to local favorites and late-night stand-bys, these currently or soon-to-open food trucks serve up a bounty of delicious new food options.
From churros dunked in ice cream to the city’s favorite hot dog, keep these five new Houston food trucks on your radar.
Dulce de Lopez Dessert Truck
Now parked outside Lopez Mexican Restaurant, this new dessert-focused truck serves up freshly-fried churros stuck inside cups of chilly ice cream. According to the Houston Chronicle, these “Charitable Churros” also raise cash for local nonprofits. The truck is currently open on Friday and Saturday nights from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m.
The first roving outpost of this iconic Vietnamese eatery is now making appearances at venue across Houston. The truck posts its schedule on Instagram, and is set to make an appearance at the Houston Food Fest on August 19.
Yo-Yo’s On Wheels
Popular Rice Village late-night cart Yo-Yo’s Hot Dog will soon bring its popular hot dogs to a mobile eatery. The truck isn’t officially up and running yet, but will soon take over the former Kurbside Eatz truck, which is currently “on hold” as the truck makes its transition.
Premyo Soda Pops
It’s technically a drink truck, but Premyo Soda Pops will soon bring its fancy Italian sodas to Katy. The colorful, fizzy drinks will make their official debut at a “soft opening” party that will be held on August 19 at 550 Katy Fort Bend Road.
HTX Nitro Creamery
Houston pastry chef Johnny Wesley, formerly of The Union Kitchen and Killen’s Steakhouse, is currently raising funds via Kickstarter for his new frozen dessert concept. Alongside wholesale and retail offerings, Wesley’s new venture will serve up paletas and other frozen treats via the Nitrobus, an ice cream shop on wheels.
