Gourmet on the Go: 9 Best Food Trucks in Ottawa


We’€™re proud as punch that Ottawa is the capital of such a multicultural country. This summer, we’€™re especially excited that we can celebrate with international flair all season long (Euro-style) when a whole fleet of new food trucks hit the streets of downton for the first time in 20 years.
Royi Fruta Bar
Top of our list is Royi Fruta Bar, a cart that calls Elgin Street, north of Laurier, home. We had to go back for second helpings of their specialty empanadas’€”pastry pockets stuffed with a variety of meats, cheeses and veggies. Add guacamole and chips on the side, finish up with one of their custom blended fruit drinks and your whole family will be recharged and ready for Parliament Hill. (Tell me more)

Urban Cowboy
Prefer a hearty meal that’€™s a little closer to home? Try Urban Cowboy, a Texan-food truck that lives near Bank and Glen streets in Old Ottawa South. Their Belcher Burger on a drool-worthy (and locally made) potato bun is sure to please all visitors, and their southern-style iced tea is the perfect chaser on a hot summer’€™s day. (Tell me more)

Mr. Churritos
Lastly, finish up your tour of the world with a visit to Mr. Churritos, just south of Sparks Street on O’€™Connor. You may not have heard of churros before, but once you’€™ve tasted these fried, sugar-dusted Mexican treats, you certainly won’€™t forget them. Get an extra serving’€”you’€™ll need it. (Tell me more)

Good to Know: Food truck and cart hours vary widely, so if you’€™re looking for something specific, check their individual websites for availability.

That was just a taste of the food trucks available in the city. Check out the 9 Best Food Trucks in Ottawa.
