Food is no longer just sustenance. It’s an experience. But you don’t have to visit a brick-and-mortar five-star restaurant run by a celebrity chef to get delicious, memorable foodstuffs. The food truck movement has exploded in Pismo Beach, and if you haven’t snagged at least one meal from these restaurants on wheels, you – and your taste buds – are missing out.
Hot dogs, soft pretzels, and quesadillas might be what comes to mind at the mention of a food truck, but the mobile food vendors on the Central Coast are operating on a whole new level (and at a relatively affordable price). You’ll find traditional food truck fare, but it’ll be elevated, with additions like pear, fig, elegant cheeses, and sophisticated dressings.
Food Trucks for Hire
If you’re a guest at a wedding in the San Luis Obispo area, visiting a winery, or attending a special event or party in Pismo Beach, there’s a good chance you’ll run into Chef Anna Andriese and her popular big blue food truck, the Haute Skillet Truck. For some seriously innovative cuisine, the Haute Skillet is at the top of the list. Andriese caters “anywhere you want us to be” and is known for her “truck ciabatta” bread made daily from raw ingredients. Toasts, skewers, tapas, flat breads with proteins, greens, cheeses, savory sides, and delectable desserts are on Haute Skillet’s extensive menu.
