If you have visited the city you must’ve asked yourself - what’s with all these food trucks? They are everywhere and you can eat at any time year round. There are favorites that locals seem to like over others, but I’ll let you experiment and decide for yourself - I’ll just say that you will not be disappointed with any of them no matter what kind of food you prefer; sandwiches, crepes, paninis, fries, dot dogs, and I’m not even going to try to begin to list out the cold refreshing beverages and ice cream available for you to take delight in. Especially if you simply want to hop in your car to go to the beach, these food trucks become so convenient when you want to simply grab a quick bite to eat and not worry about finding a restaurant, driving and parking somewhere, or finding a table on a busy day.
