Best of the Best Southern California Food Trucks to Spice up Your Wedding

Thinking about what food you want to serve at your wedding can be a very stressful decision because let’s face it, everyone loves food and some people are hard to please. We love both the classic buffet style and plated meals, but for a fun little twist, why not try one of these Southern California food trucks?

Food trucks make for easy cleanup, can be a huge money-saver, and are super trendy! There are so many different food truck catering companies, there is sure to be something every couple loves! If you are serving your main meal plated style or buffet, think about bringing in a food truck to serve dessert. It’ll add some fun to the party and is much more personalized for the guests.

1 | Tap Truck USA

Hire San Diego-based Tap Truck USA for all of your drink needs! This company was started by two friends in 2016 who wanted to combine their two favorite things: vintage American trucks and beer.

The owners grew up in the Middle East and were inspired by all of the Egyptian food they ate every day. They decided to create the Falafel Factory because they found that there was a lack of Middle Eastern food options here in the States. Their menu consists of a variety of falafels, falafel salads, meat platters, wraps, fries, hummus, pitas, and rice.  Everything is made with all-natural ingredients, as well.

The Falafel Factory caters to the Los Angeles area offers three different food truck packages for your big day: the Gold Package, Platinum Package, and Exclusive Package. Each package changes based on the number of entrées and side selections you would like to provide for your guests. With the Exclusive Package, for instance, your guests will get an option to choose one of three entrees with however many sides they please.

The Falafel Factory’s goal is to help couples focus on the fun and not the food! We think this food truck would be a great option for an eclectic wedding.
