Meals On Wheels? Grab A Bite At These Food Trucks In Namma Chennai

Anna posted on 27 September

While our city doesn’t have a whole slew of food trucks, the ones we do have are pretty fantastic. And for those of you who haven’t gotten a taste for the delicious food these trucks serve, here’s what you’re missing out on!


Technically the first food truck in the city, Karam was started by Karthik Kannan who quit his F&B job to start this venture. The menu features Chinese and South Indian dishes at affordable prices and everything about the food and the service is clean and uncomplicated. Head to Velachery to check out the truck and sample their specialties. We’d recommend starting with the momos and working your way through to the Fish Burji and still come away having spent no more than INR 300 for a delicious meal.

Spotted around: 100 Feet Road, Velachery.

It’s a rare thing to find Tibetian food being served in Chennai, but this food truck in Thiruvanmiyur is doing just that. Started by Rakesh Raj, Chaska serves dumplings, noodles and so much more. They serve non-vegetarian and vegetarian options, so you can take all your friends to fully enjoy the experience. The truck is open only in the evenings, so plan ahead and show up before the food runs out. Try the chicken or vegetable kothe {a pan-fried momo} and the Schezwan noodles if you’re a fan of spicy food.
