Portuguese Food Trucks

The Food Truck scene is exploding across the country! In Boson, the number of trucks has gone from just 16 in 2011 to 56 in 2013. It was only a matter of time that we’d finally see Portuguese food trucks emerge.

Here are two that I came across. One in Orlando Fl and one in Providence RI. I’m sure there will be more of these popping up in many other locations soon. If you know of any trucks serving Portuguese food in your city please contact me so I can add them to this list! Enjoy!
