New kids on the block


Even with a plethora of options in the city, foodies never seem to get enough. That’s probably a reason behind many food trucks being seen in various parts of the city nowadays.

Vishal Gupta, co-founder of ‘Pop’l Food Truck’, started the initiative a couple of months ago. Stationed at Inorbit Mall, Whitefield, Vishal says, “The idea of the food truck was to provide healthy food options for those who don’t have the time to cook. Especially with the hectic schedule everyone has these days, I personally know how much one doesn’t feel like going back home and cooking for themselves,” he adds. ‘Pop’l Food Truck’ serves dishes like ‘Thai curry’, ‘Whole wheat pasta’, ‘Masala dal khichdi’ and ‘Aloe vera halwa’ amongst others. “It’s seen a great response and we hope to continue spreading love through food,” says Vishal.

Move to the other end of the city and you’ll see ‘So-Fat’s Dosas’ in BMT Layout. Sameer Sofat, the co-founder of the food truck, says, “I’ve always been interested in the culinary industry and I wanted to do something on my own. That’s when I decided to merge the idea of South Indian and North Indian food and use ‘dosa’ as the base for all.” The ‘dosa sandwich’ is one of their fast moving items. “It’s never been done before and I’m glad people love it. Though we are based in BTM Layout, we usually move around the city, especially to apartments and IT parks,” he explains.

Taking the food truck business to a whole new level is the team of ‘Santiago Burritos’. Kruthi Seshachala, the co-founder says, “We started the food truck in January and we’ve also launched two standalone restaurants. We’re taking the truck to Manipal soon.” They serve Mexican cuisine like ‘burrito’, ‘nachos’, ‘quesadilla’ and even crepes and waffles. Kruthi says, “We serve at tech parks during the day and every evening on Indiranagar 100 Feet Road. Our food attracts a mix of professionals, bachelors and families.”
