Can't Miss Meals

The Curry Pot

Although The Curry Pot is less than a year old, it has quickly become a favorite amongst locals. Why? As one pleased patron described it, their flavorful Sri Lankan food tastes like “love child of Thai and Indian cuisines.” All of their vegetarian fare is also vegan, and the only thing on the menu with gluten is the samosa. We can get behind that!

What we get: The veggie combo, complete with two of The Curry Pot’s daily veggie curries, rice, coconut sambol, papadum, a samosa, and a drink. $10. Visit their Facebook page to see where you can find them.

Purple Tree Organic Açaí Blends

If you’ve ever tried an açaí bowl, you get why they’re so popular: a thick and creamy purple smoothie is packed into a bowl, then topped with healthy goodies like granola, shredded coconut, fresh berries, and raw honey. And Purple Tree Organic Açaí Bowls is bringing these sweet and Brazilian bowls to you in their mobile, solar electric powered food truck!

What we get: An açaí bowl with extra granola and hemp seeds. $5.50. Visit their Facebook page to see where you can find them.

Hungry Kepuha

The Hungry Kepuha food truck is bringing Guam’s cuisine (more formally known as Chamoru food) to Tucson, and it’s delicious enough to make you want to take a trip to the tropical island itself. Hungry Kepuha’s owner and chef describes the day-long marinated barbecue and traditional sides as “simple, amazing food that will fill you up.”

What we get: The combo plate, complete with grilled BBQ chicken and spare ribs served along sides of red rice, chicken kelaguen, cucumber salad, and finadene. $12. Visit their Facebook page to see where you can find them.

What we get: Vegan tofu taco with the juice of the day. $10. Visit their Facebook page to see where you can find them.
