As the sun sets in Gurgaon, Leisure Valley’s parking lot {in Sector 29} comes alive. The food truck fad has arrived in a big way, and we couldn’t be happier. Lined up one after the other, all of these trucks have distinct identities, loyal foodies who flock back to them and a completely unique selling point.

So, we went food-truck-hopping, because who can comfortably park themselves at just one, anyway? Grab a chair, leave your work woes behind and enjoy the music at this food truck haven while you indulge your tummy.

We love a food truck that’s sushi-driven, and Sushi House Mafia’s offerings make us very happy. The Kick {wasabi-marinated prawn sushi} packs a punch and, indeed, gives you quite the kick. We hear that their Crispy Asparagus sushi is also well-rolled and delicious.

Price: INR 700 for two {approx.}

A food truck oldie, EggJactly does breakfast right. Their waffles have managed to create quite a buzz in Gurgaon, and remain their main draw even today. If you have a big sweet tooth, get their Choco Blast Waffles {they also do a pancake version, if you swing that way}. Nothing like all-day-breakfast, is there?

Price: INR 450 for two {approx.}

Timings: 6pm – 12am

Chaat with a twist, expect beautifully-plated platters and unusual combinations here. We tried their Mason Jars of Chilled Cheena Ka Bhalla, served with a cooling Beetroot ki Dahi, and Deshi Ghee Fusion Aloo Tikki stuffed with wasabi peas and mushrooms. Both great; both highly-recommended.

Price: INR 250 for two {approx.}

Timings: 6pm – 11pm

Asian flavours done right, Drifter Cafe’s menu is a wonderful mix of Thai, Japanese, Indonesian and Chinese cuisines. The big winners are their dim sums; both the Corn & Water Chestnut and the Chicken ones. Their spring rolls are wonderfully flaky and delicious, so we’d also recommend a plate of those.

Price: INR 400 for two {approx.}

Timings: 12.30pm – 3pm, 6.30pm – 11pm

Stop at Something Saucy for their burgers, available in red, green and white variants. The Green Burger is completely veggie; a cottage cheese patty between two green buns {the spinach lends the dark green colour}. Plus, they win brownie points for being pocket-friendly and super quick in their service.

Frugurpop

A food-truck favourite, Frugurpop’s sorbets and ice creams are a great way to beat the unrelenting heat. The Fruitilicious Popsicle is a crowd-pleaser, but our heart was set on the Salted Caramel & Pecan Nut, and it didn’t disappoint.

Price: INR 250 for two {approx.}

Timings: 6pm – 10pm {weekdays}, 4pm – 10pm {weekend}

If you’re in the mood for a big plate of comfort food, we recommend a pit stop at Flavour Hub. Expect familiar flavours and simple cooking, but lots of yumminess. Try their Butter Chicken Wrap; it’s garnered some rave reviews.

Price: INR 500 for two {approx.}

Timings: 6pm – 12am

Unfortunately, The Rolling Kitchen, Yolks On Fire and Thirsty Birdy weren’t parked when we went, but if you spot them, let us know what you’d recommend!
