Today, a new generation of street food lovers are lining up at food trucks like never before. On top of conventional brick-and-mortar restaurants or street stalls which already made Malaysia a food heaven, Malaysians now have another lip-smacking choice! Just like restaurants, they produce high quality and delicious food but with their on-the-wheel advantage, it means that these mouthwatering food trucks can be at any time near you, or even in the compound of your house if you want them to be! But one thing is for sure: the aroma of food truck cuisine will soon waft through the downtown streets of Malaysia, especially in the Klang Valley. Let’s check out the Top 10 Trending Food Trucks that you should flock to!
1. La Famiglia Food Truck
We bet you have never tried Pastas https://shravskitchen.com/ cooked by the Italian Mafias. To be precise, top-notch-yummylicious pastas. Introducing to you the one-and-only unique La Famiglia, an Italian mafia themed food truck. La Famiglia is the pasta specialist you would be glad to see parked around your neighborhood. And don’t worry: if they are mafias, they would be the friendliest ones you will find. In fact, the founders of La Famiglia came from vastly different backgrounds such as banking, construction and animation.
Often spotted at Dungun in the daytime, and at Subang (SS15) at night, La Famiglia gained traction and reputation in recent years by emerging as the crème de la crème of food trucks. This success is largely built upon their passion and dedication of serving perfecto pastas. Oh and their inexpensive prices make a difference too!
2. Flaming Wheels
The Flaming Wheels is a purpose-built-kitchen-on-wheels offering healthy quality local and international cuisines at affordable prices. From the sexy outlook of the truck to the best quality of food, Flaming Wheels is a one-of-its-kind food truck that will have you just sitting there to admire. Focusing its location on participating universities in the Klang Valley, Flaming Wheels is not just about an on-the-go food experience; their thoughts towards a noble cause has also won the hearts of many.

3. Burger Giler Power
While most of us are familiar with burger stalls set up around the streets of Malaysia, we hardly come across ones that move around on wheels. Burger Giler Power is one such on-the-go burger truck that you will often see at Taman Melawati, in front of Espresso Lab from 5 to 10pm. Barely into its first year of business, Burger Giler Power has quickly gained a substantial fan base — especially amongst those living around Taman Melawati — with its signature mouthwatering gourmet burgers.
Can’t picture the goodness? Imagine charcoal buns, homemade patties, and fresh ingredients combined with juicy sauces. That’s right! It is their signature gourmet burgers we are talking about, and just to name a few, do try out their Classic Cheese Burger, Cajun Chicken Burger and The Chief Burger. On the sidelines, their crispy mushroom and chicken broccoli salad are worth trying too!
4. The Laughing Monkey Cafe
Hate it when you have to look for a car park just to have a cup of coffee? Feel annoyed when you have to walk some distance during lunch time just to buy a coffee? Look out for The Laughing Monkey Café, a truck dedicated to providing you with affordable, rich, freshly brewed coffee and delicious sandwiches at your doorstep. And trust us, it is easy to spot the Orangey cute little truck of The Laughing Monkey.
You would be wrong to think that coffee served from a truck will not be any good. The Laughing Monkey’s coffee (and hot chocolate) would top the coffees of many brick-and-mortar cafes out there. And why not give them a try, when they come straight to your doorstep? The Laughing Monkey Café was founded when two colleagues, Kelvin and Justine, were caught in the rain while they were walking some distance from their office just to get a coffee.
5. Curbside Cantina
Serving up tacos and other Mexican treats, Curbside Cantina is a Mexican influenced food truck that you’ll find quite interesting. At least, it’s not just another food truck serving you the conventional western cuisine. While this colorful truck does not really have a fixed spot (perhaps Bangsar would be your best bet), their creative menu of good food is their best selling point. After all, Chilli Con Carne with Papadums, Cemita Burger, Chicken Quesa Tacos, Steak Tacos, Beef Cubano Sandwich and Churros are not the usual words you see on other trucks.
Also be rest assured of the standard of Curbside Cantina, as it is an extension of a catering company called Cantina Moderna. The founders & team have been in the catering scene since 2006, and even ran a restaurant, Pink Sage, from 2008 to 2011. Now, go catch this Cantina On-The-Go.
