Food trucks provide a dining experience unlike any other. Somehow everything tastes better when it’s served from one of those little windows! If you’re searching for unique culinary creations this summer, head to the North Eats food truck park in Asbury Park, NJ. It’s located on the Asbury Park Boardwalk and boasts six mobile restaurants and a picnic area. From fresh salads to chili fries to rainbow-sprinkled frozen delights, these Asbury Park food trucks will tempt your taste buds. Here are some of our favorites.
Top 5 Asbury Park Food Trucks
1. Seoul Fusion
Seoul Fusion burst onto the Asbury Park food truck scene in 2015. Showcasing a unique mix of Asian and Mexican flavors, chef Andrew Mazza’s dishes were immediately a hit. Guest favorites include the tofu tacos, bulgogi bites (deep-fried marinated sirloin with jalapeño cheddar sauce), and crinkle-cut fries topped with caramelized kimchi.
2. Johnny’s Pork Roll & Coffee Truck
While the rest of the state debates over whether it’s Taylor Ham or Pork Roll, we’ll be digging into a sandwich at Johnny’s. Owner John Yarusi is doing much more with this beloved breakfast meat than topping it with a fried egg and cheese. His first trick is to cook the pork roll until it’s nearly burned, making it crispy and flavorful. Then he sandwiches it between a few unexpected ingredients. Stop by and see the madness for yourself!
3. The Pocketful
What’s betta than feta? The Pocketful is a Mediterranean food truck that was inspired by owner Jack Rahmey’s grandmother, who was raised in Jerusalem. Whether you order the namesake Pocketful sandwich or the fried Eggplant Extravaganza, we promise you’ll leave feeling full and satisfied. The Pocketful is also a great option for those with dietary restrictions: many dishes are vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free.
4. Neapolitan Express
It’s no secret that Jersey folks take their pizza very seriously. So if you’re craving a slice, this is the place to get it! Neapolitan Express serves authentic Naples-style pizza right from their food truck. They even use organic, non-GMO ingredients! Not sure what to order? We recommend the Margherita pie made with San Marzano tomatoes, fresh mozzarella, basil and Parmigiano Reggiano. Or try the spicy A Diavolo that gets its heat from fresh jalapenos, soppressata salami, and honey infused with chili peppers. They even have a dessert pie topped with Nutella!
5. Igloo Italian Ice & Ice Cream
No trip to the Jersey Shore is complete without a frozen dessert. Igloo’s signature item is soft serve, but diners can choose from a variety of sweet treats including homemade ice cream pops, all-natural fresh fruit pops, Italian ices, and milkshakes. Don’t forget to ask for a heaping helping of sprinkles on top.
North Eats serves beachgoers, bicyclists, and passers-by from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Sunday through Thursday and 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays. However, like many locations at the Jersey Shore, these trucks change their hours during the summer season. Be sure to check the North Eats Facebook page for updates.
