On Saturday I braved the very real threat of bad Dutch weather to make my way by train down to Utrecht for the Spek and Bonen Festival. The location in a parking lot on the other side of Utrecht Centraal (the side you’ve probably never been to) underwhelmed in comparison to the parks of recent excellent festivals, but the food did not disappoint. My good friend ZhiZhi and her cousins in tow, we sought to eat our way across that parking lot, and boy did we.
The variety and visual appeal of the trucks at this festival impressed me. In many cases each felt like a small camp, with its own setup and often an on-display cooking setup. I’ve seen several of these trucks before, but there are still plenty that I have yet to eat at.
Favs of the Day:
L’Aubergine Caravan takes the (very well decorated) cake. Just look at this beautiful food. And the truck too!
For the Truck:
Neude Janskerkhof en Domplein, Utrecht, Netherlands
