The Hamptons food truck scene is more vibrant than ever thanks to an array of delicious seaside options. Whether it's time to surrender to your lobster roll craving or you need a quick snack, here are five food spots on wheels worth checking out this season.
You may have seen these swoon-worthy treats since their recent supermarket launch, but this Kirk Park Beach-based truck is a welcome reprieve from the afternoon's scorching temperatures. Made with only real fruit, water, and a dash of organic cane sugar, soft serve fruit options include dark chocolate, mango, and pineapple, which all clock in at a waist-friendly 90 calories per 3.5 oz. serving. Did we mention it’s free of dairy, gluten, and fat?
Though it’s only available for catering and private events, this truck is a rolling haven for omnivores who can enjoy fresh options like farmers' orzo salad, asparagus tartine with pickled fiddlehead and ricotta, and watermelon and feta salad. Read more >>
Farm-to-truck bites are offered out of this retrofitted 1964 vintage Airstream trailer, which is also available for events and catering. Hamptonites can expect seasonal dishes like vegetable arancini (crispy risotto balls) with pesto aioli, pomegranate glazed baby back ribs, and its namesake lobster roll. 333-2156
Can you argue with handcrafted ice cream on a hot summer’s day? Neither can we. This popular treat-maker is a favorite of LDV Hospitality's chef Jason Kallert, who oversees Gurney’s restaurants and bars; he loves the vegan ice cream sandwich with an edible wrapper. Dairy aficionados can rejoice in flavors like fried chicken and waffles, Maker’s Manhattan, and Fast Food—comprised of salted Tahitian vanilla bean ice cream, chocolate malt balls, and French fry crisps.
Swing by this truck, located at the East Hampton Sportime Tennis Club, and sink your teeth into Montauk cod fish or striped bass complete with a panko crust and fresh herb cream, or the signature chicken with fresh baby spinach, prosciutto, and fontina. 320 Abrahams Path, East Hampton, 875-4400
