After sampling hundreds of food trucks across Europe, over 70 culinary critics concluded that Copenhagen has the best food truck in the EU. Believe it or not, this highly-lauded food truck in the Danish capital doesn’t even serve local food…it’s actually a taco stand named Hija de Sanchez.
Ever since it was founded in 2015, Hija de Sanchez has attracted a huge following of locals and tourists alike. Food critics were shocked how well head chef Rosio Sanchez blended the flavors of traditional Mexican cuisine with Scandinavian flair.
In addition to her food truck in the Torvehallerne area, Sanchez also owns a Hija de Sanchez restaurant in Vesterbro. Chef Sanchez isn’t surprised with the popularity of her restaurant considering how difficult it is to get high-quality Mexican food in Europe.
Coming in at second place was the restaurant Sea Me in the Portuguese capital Lisbon. Located in the Time Out Market, Sea Me serves a combination of traditional Portuguese food with Japanese flavors.
Third place went to the Parisian food truck Alain Miam Miam at Marche Des Enfants Rouges. This popular food truck serves hearty sandwiches and galettes with organic veggies, cheeses, and charcuterie.
The rest of the award-winning food trucks in Europe from number four to ten are as follows: AmsterDAM good Cookies in Amsterdam, Mori e Vai in Rome, bone. BERLIN in the German capital, Aleppo Bahebek in Oslo, Lángos Máshogy in Budapest, Korvar Kiosk in Stockholm, and Yum Bun in London.
Most of the food critics who took part in this survey work for easyJet’s inflight magazine Traveller. A few Michelin-starred chefs, however, also joined this European food truck study.
