Movie & TV Themed Food Trucks Bring Nostalgia to the Streets

August 9, 2011

The novelty food truck has become a necessity in city life as many owners are opting for unique designs to show off their menus. From the wacky to the fantastical, people will travel across cities and towns to dine at one of these portable restaurants.

The Game of Thrones Food Truck

Just before the series premiere of Game of Thrones, HBO had the ingenious idea of putting this food truck out in the streets of the United States, starting in Manhattan and ending in Los Angeles. Each day on their trek across the country, this unique food truck featured a different meal inspired by the television show. One such meal was The Wall, a black seafood stew with peppers, beats and a pickled egg with a piece of lemon cake on the side.

Star Wars Food Truck: The Grillenium Falcon

The Grillenium Falcon from Fayetteville, Arkansas is inspired by the infamous Millennium Falcon spacecraft from the Star Wars movie series. Specializing in grilled cheese sandwiches, the food truck is an extension of Hammontree's Grilled Cheese, a restaurant owned by Chad and Alison Hammontree. If their food truck is as great as this, I can't help but wonder what their restaurant looks like.
