It’s gathered 25 food trucks from all over the island to help promote small local food and beverage entrepreneurs in a carnival like atmosphere. Food truck is part of George Town’s urban landscape. These vehicles can be seen moving on the road, parked at pop up markets or near offices during meal times. These mobile food kitchens are a boon to office workers and suburbs dwellers as the industry continues to grow.
