>>
Munchie boxes. We all know they could take off in the US if people were exposed to them.
>>
Curry, and I serve it in a shoe

I'll be making $5 million a month selling to hipsters in Portland
>>
salmonella and E. coli mainly. Maybe some botulinum as a seasonal special.
>>
>>7061328
They better be hand made fair trade shoes made of cruelty free organic leather
>>
Weed!
>>
Assuming the food truck can be custom built, I would do barbecue.

I do a lot of smoking and grilling, and have read every book I've been able to get my hands on. I figure I could get by on that.
>>
I would hire it out to a food truck vendor
>>
It's starting to get cold here, so I would offer toasted sandwiches with a cup of soup. $5 for hot ham/cheese & tomato soup combo!
>>
I sell the truck.

I'd sell hamburgers based on ethnic groups. All of them will have to be the same price because of cultural marxism (even though some are objectively better).
>>
>>7061356
That's why you price everything based on the best tasting one. If people ask why your african burger (a pile of elephant dung) costs 10 dollars, tell them about your progressive reasoning and then the hipsters will have to buy at least 1 of them.
>>
Me? I'd sell crab legs.
>>
One funny thing is that friends and I used to go to a hobby shop on about 1st ave and 72nd in Manhattan and ask for a "sherman tank" it was $20 an in an envelope it was some decent weed.

GOOD TIMES!
>>
>>7061331
They might be.
>>
I would server dumplings from all over the world
and call it "Dump Truck" but someone already beat me to it
>>
>>7061383
go for "sherman tank" for fun.
>>
The sherman tank thing made a lot of sense since they sold models and stuff... it was natural, also natural that some faggot got them busted, not me.

I'd just show up somewhere late at night with a big vat of premade chili and just dole it out in those bowl-shaped tortillas you see everywhere nowadays

maybe an optional bit of grated cheese on top, or some nachos too.

Hipster af, but I'd try to build a brick oven in and crank out fresh bread rolls, then just sell them with a shitload of butter and have some meat and cheese around as add ons.

Baked potato soup, please!
>>
>>7061852
I'mma be honest with you senpai every soup and pasta item and most dessert items are just thawed out before serving. Pretty sure the Baked Potato Soup (comes in a non-branded box) is the same shit you get from any wholesale supplier. http://www.sandridge.com/soups/item/baked-potato-soup-with-bacon.html Will prolly be your best bet.

Those look good. It's like a thick crepe made out of oats? If you wouldn't mind I would like to see your recipe.

>>7061920
I'm not entirely surprised. Thanks for the recommendation!

Poutine but like make your own so really potatoes with whatever you want on top

Oden. All you need is a decent stock, a decent boiled fish cake recipe for pollock, shrimp and tilapia anf you got an easy moneymaker

Some simple soups, bacon and lentil, tomato and basil, vegetable etc, with fresh crusty bread.

Assuming that I'm not bound to whatever I know the exact recipe to, I'll serve just white sauce. I'm not even going to bother with the lamb and the rice and all that stuff.

Customers bring whatever meal they have on them, I squeeze a dollop onto their food, fifty cents, thank you next customer.

And if liquid cocaine somehow doesn't sell, at least I'll have barrels of the stuff for my own use.
>>
modify it with a bbq pit on back. serve bbq sandwiches.
>>
Paninis.
Actually had a look at buying a van at my local uni. They seem to do alright as long you're serving something simple and slightly interesting.
>>
kung fu chicken and grilled cheese
>>
Bubble tea, smoothies and gyoza's maybe limited quantity of fresh bento boxes at lunch time
Or
The whole Japanese noodle shop thing. I'd have seats right up at front and maybe foldable chairs/tables also infront of the truck
>>

Don't get me fucking started...

>>7063157
Why what happened? evil chinaman spit in it and called it bubbles

>>7063178
I live in Korea and everyone is like omg bubble tea so great and then I ""drink"" it and it's just sweet syrup tea with fucking gelatinous blobs in it. Like what the FUCK who decided that was a good idea??
>>
>>7063187
It's a nice drink with candy like "balls" in it that you can chew. I usually get the smoothies with diced fruit in it because of the reason you said with syrup and flavor powder

> You are now the owner of a food truck. What do you serve?

Bowls.

This would allow for a wide range of foods (pretty much anything that can go in a bowl) and high rate of return for the food truck owner, while giving customers a good selection of hot meals that are also easy to hold on to and eat.

Had pic related a couple of time when they were at the local brew bup (Kuhnhenn's in Warren MI) and it was real tasty, though pretty expensive.
>>
I'd sell french fries, just because deep fryers in a food truck sounds like a hilarious disaster.

I haven't seen that image macro series since 2007 or 2008. I remember 2006 so well, the peak of my time on /b/, before I abandoned ship in 2008 because of the influx of newfags. I haven't even looked at the place since 2009, maybe once in the early '10s. Do they remember the old memes? Has the flood of shit finally subsided? What's it like?
>>
I would do soups. It would be like the Soup Nazi except I would be nice and it would be a truck.

Soup is a great meal for both buyer and seller. Filling and convenient and time-consuming to cook, so it's good for consumers, cheap and easy to have ready to serve for the seller, just big pots of simmering soups for a fair price.
>>
Hot dogs/Brats, Hamburgers, Deli Sandwiches, Maybe wraps/burritos, and maybe salads.
>>
I'd go for variety and simple, but filling recipies.
A couple pizza by the slice options.
A burger made to order.
A bowl of fresh pasta in a homemade ragu.
Turkey or chicken tamales.

Pretty much my staple dishes that I've gotten down pretty well, plus a few American essentials.

Honestly though it's more about location and price. I 've thought about opening a good truck since my town has many good locations, but I'm not fiscally ready.

Take random ingredients from customers and homeless people, mix it with batter and cabbage, fry, serve.
I'll continue doing this until I am shut down and arrested.

Given that I live in Portland Oregon this should be easy enough to pull off as some stupid pseudo-offbeat hipster thing, like everything else over here.

Most food trucks have shit drink options, so I'd set up near others and focus on drinks. Fresh coffee, loose leaf tea, fresh smoothies, iced teas with simple syrup that I boil down in the back, then fruit preservatives from making simple syrup.

OP here, how is it so far fetched?
They opened up a cafe that serves cereal for a similar price. And it's owned by a couple of hipsters

Save up some money and do it. My cousin and I used to run a lemonaide stand in NYC and made mint from that as little kids. We'd make sure to be on the sunny side of the avenue where it was hottest so people would be more likely to be thirsty.

Breakfast sandwiches served with hash browns/fried potatoes. I'd never work it though, I don't wake up early enough for breakfast.
Alternatively, sandwiches paired with soups for dipping, a different pairing for every day of the business week.
