Weary from your travels? We’ll help you feel like a world traveller without even having to leave town! These drool-worthy Calgary food trucks are sure to take your taste buds on a trip without spending hours in the car. Read on to get hungry:

 Soul Kitchen BBQ Co.

If you ever find yourself craving Southern food, or wondering what Creole dishes taste like, then head on over to the most inviting, smokin’ hot street food truck in all of Calgary! Their inspiration for the truck came through sauces, so the food is definitely not lacking in flavour! With classics like peppered beef ribs, alligator gumbo, collard greens and fried okra.

StrEATS Mobile Kitchen

Serving tacos, poutines, fish & chips, and burritos, this food truck really appreciates their customers - by recognizing that the people who like on the streets deserve food too, so they utilize their give back program, called StrEATS4streets foodraiser, which allows customers to donate $1.50, which then contributes towards buying a full-size taco to give out to someone in need. They also take sustainability into account by shopping local, and using 70% ocean-wise certified fish, and using recyclable food containers because as they say, “a good planet is hard to find”! They also have vegetarian options among their tacos and poutines! What a trEAT!

 Arepa Boss

Serving gluten-free Venezuelan food, such as their traditional arepa, with a corn-dough pocket with all kinds of savoury fillings, authentic side dishes and sauces too! The arepa can be eaten for breakfast, lunch, or dinner - it doesn’t discriminate! This scrumptious food truck even donates a portion of their sales to Project P.A.L., which supports local people and animals in need. Who knew something that tasted so good could feel and do so much good too?

 CheChivo Salvadoran Street Food

Che Chivo, meaning ‘how cool!’ in El Salvador, sure lives up to its name! Serving the freshest food you can’t get anywhere else in Calgary, such as pupusas, tamales, ceviche, yuca fries, and plantain empanadas. The menu is naturally gluten free, and everything is served with their home-made curtido salsa. They even have vegetarian options! Finally, if you have fallen in love with their hot sauce, lucky for you they now have it for sale by the bottle - Order up!

If you’re thinking of indulging in any of the above food trucks, make sure you book with Econolodge South Calgary for the best stay you can get without draining your wallet! We have an indoor pool and hot tub, fitness centre, free wireless internet, and continental breakfast! The lodge is even pet-friendly, so feel free bring your furry friends!
