Food trucks to follow in and around Pretoria

Whether you’re looking for stuffed tacos, risotto balls or waffles on sticks – Pretoria’s food trucks have it all. Here’s our round-up of great meals on wheels in Pretoria.

Imbuzi Cafe

Imbuzi Cafe trades at the Deep Roots Night Market, the Cesar Square Market and at the Fijnwijn wine festival. Their burgers are definitely the most popular, with bacon making an appearance regularly, along with rosemary, cream cheese and blue cheese. There’s also a must-try goat burger.

TacoKombi is a regular at all kinds of markets and festivals around Pretoria. They mostly trade at the Hazel Food Market on Saturdays, but often do private and corporate functions. You should definitely go for their tacos, which can be made with beef or chicken and are served with avo, salsa, jalapeños, lettuce, cheese and sour-cream mayo. Their nachos are pretty awesome, too.

Sprout 360 Urban Food

A regular at Market @ The Sheds, Sprout offers a range of delectable dishes, but one of their most popular is surely the risotto balls. The hotdogs score a close second, though.

Pink Waffle Cabin 

Another regular at markets and events is Pink Waffle Cabin, with their adorable bubblegum-pink food truck. Find them at the Deep Roots Night Market and Hazel Food Market as well as festivals and events all around Gauteng. Real Belgian waffles are the star and come topped with your choice of ice cream, cream or candy bars (think Crunchie or Bar One). If you’re looking for a more mobile option, try one of their waffles on a stick.
