5 new Boston food trucks you need to try right now

Boston Boston's food truck scene, much like you, is ever-expanding. To wit, here are five fresh mobile eateries you should make a point to track down as you yourself progress towards truck-sized stature.

Evan’s New York Style Deli Food Truck
Bagels! Knishes! Reubens! If you need your NYC deli fix, save yourself a trip to that hellhole and head straight to Evan’s New York Style Deli Food Truck (breakfast, lunch, or dinner). They’re hauling real-deal meats up to Boston, so you can enjoy hearty sammies like The New Yorker (more than 3/4lb of Romanian pastrami), The Bostonian (more than 1.5lbs of corned beef, pastrami & turkey breast), or a classic corned beef Reuben. The decision-challenged will want to try a Reuben or pastrami knish. Continue Reading

Stoked Wood Fired Pizza Co.
Stoked should also describe your reaction to learning that there's a food truck doing wood-fired pizzas. Pies bake in two-three minutes and include most of your classic topping schemes. But you should also make room for their Buffalo chicken number (with fire-braised bird) if you know what’s good for you. They also have inventive daily specials (think BBQ sausage 'za) and unique sweets from their in-house pastry chef, "Cookie Face". Seriously. 

Tenoch Móvil
Tenoch Mexican (Medford, Boston) hits the road with Tenoch Móvil and brings South-of-the-border flavors to a sidewalk near you. They have an ample array of tasty staples, like enchiladas (verdes, rojas, mole), tacos (carnitas, barbacoa, etc.), and tamales. However, the tortas are the stars of the show, such as the Tenoch, piled high with carnitas and ham, and the Choriqueso with melted Oaxaca cheese, chorizo, and chipotle mayo.

Zo on the Go
It’s time for your big fat Greek lunch, and the good folks from Zo Boston (Faneuil Hall, Gov’t Center) are serving up classics that would make Zorba proud. They have overstuffed gyros and other packed pitas, and plenty of oh-so-flaky spanakopita. Add some avgolemono (lemon chicken rice soup) and dolmadakia (stuffed grape leaves) to complete your Hellenic feast. Hellenic YES!

Jonathan Moy and his yakitori/dumpling kitchen crew are all about Asian street food, and they are hand-crafting every bite just for you. The Moyzilla Style is a thing of beauty: cheeseburger dumplings (!!!) topped with sautéed onions and a secret sauce. They also have grilled skewers for carnivorous cravings, such as sirloin with Asian chimichurri. Extra hungry? Go to town on a meal box with your choice of skewers or dumplings, fried rice or stir-fried noodles, and homemade Asian slaw. Or just head straight for dessert: Nutella dumplings with fresh strawberries and whipped cream. Yep.
