Are you brave enough to try something new? Are you brave enough to ditch your favorite dish for something a little more … well, exotic? If so, these five exotic foods are worth a try, and they are five that everyone would love to order at a food truck. Mobile kitchens, please take note.
5. Bugs, Bugs, Bugs
Person 1: “Hey, what did you do today?”
Person 2: “Oh, you know. Nothing too crazy — just ate some bugs.”
Bugs are making their comeback, people.
Seriously, though, fried bugs, covered in chocolate bugs, crunchy bugs. There are many ways to eat bugs, and there are many bugs that people can safely eat.
They might not seem like the most appetizing things of all time, but it’s all about the experience, right? Every lunch truck could use a little more bug in its life (you know, just to add a splash to the menu).
4. Anything With Bacon
Bacon by itself is not exotic, it is just amazing. However, when you start throwing bacon on/in everything, that is where the exotic part starts to come in.
Here are some examples: A bacon milkshake, bacon on donuts, bacon cream. Heck, there are probably even bacon pies out there.
Since bacon is so popular — and so amazing to the taste buds — people are putting it on everything. I don’t see anyone complaining about that one either. Every mobile food truck can use more bacon.
3. Exotic Meats
You know, like elk, bison, gator … frog legs. People serve up some pretty weird animals. It’s up to us, as food eaters, to enjoy said animals. Because cow and chicken are so yesterday. Make sure your customized truck is serving up some not-so-popular meats — your mobile food truck will thrive as a result.
2. Rocky Mountain Oysters
This can technically go under the exotic meats category, but Rocky Mountain oysters deserve their own party.
Some might be wondering, what are Rocky Mountain oysters? To put it simple as can be, they are animal testicles. Animals such as bull, sheep or pig.
Remember, we are talking exotic here, folks. And nothing is more exotic in the mobile kitchen department than some Rocky Mountain oysters.
1. Lobster Anything
Lobster is exploding nowadays. Did you know they make lobster tacos (this is a must for all taco trucks)? Well, they do, and they are freaking amazing. Heck, lobster on a stick would make for one heck of a meal.
If you are one of those people who haven’t tried lobster, you need to. That is a huge, huge understatement.
Lobster ice cream could be next…
If you are thinking about buying a food truck, don’t be afraid to spice things up a bit … or a whole lot.
