Portland Has Nothing On Us

We went to Portland two summers ago and one of my favorite things about the city was the line of food trucks in the middle of the city. There were TONS of them and the food was great - best hummus I ever had! It made Portland seem so cool. So I was very excited when I heard that Salt Lake has it's very own food truck gathering. I thought it was my own little secret I could share with all of you. It turns out the food trucks were only a secret from me - as you can see from the photo below, lots of people know about them.

The food trucks gather at the Gallivan Center every Thursday from 11 AM to 2 PM. (The Gallivan Center is at 239 Main Street, but the food trucks are on the State Street side of Gallivan). My friend and I met at the Gallivan at 11:30 and a few of the trucks already had a long line. By the time we left at 12:45, every truck had a line. So go early, or maybe late, most of the customers are professionals from nearby office buildings.

There are nine food trucks that rotate at the Gallivan every Thursday. You can find out which trucks will be there each week by following the Food Truck Thursday Facebook page.

The Cupbop Korean BBQ truck had the longest lines and the most exciting truck, there was chanting and shouting (happy shouting) the entire time we were there. The A Guy & His Wife Grilled Cheese had the next longest line. We didn't eat at either one but the food coming out of both looked great.

We settled on the Grub Truck and we both got delicious street tacos. There are a few tables to sit at, and plenty of benches and room on the stairs.

The food trucks are definitely worth a visit downtown!

  1. Yes, You are useful details about port land. Portland is the most important town inside the U.S. country of Oregon and the seat of Multinomial County. It's far a chief port within the Willamette Valley vicinity of the Pacific Northwest.
