It is probably the one food truck that will surely grab you with their aroma so powerful, that you get drooled at once. With a massive queue that justifies their presence, the Bombay Food Truck screams with big bites of pure street food given a gourmet twist.

Their menu consists of some crazy picks from Pav Bhaji Roll to Broken Vada Pav. Their best seller is the Mac Dog which is loaded with good quality bacon, mozzarella, cheddar, parmesan, macaroni and greens, all served with crispy fries on the side! You couldn’t ask for more goodness in a single bite.

They have been the lords of food and service for more than 25 years, and now they’re hitting the roads reaching out with some lip smacking Mexican food.

Their burritos, quesadillas, and tacos have the power to stop you by as you take a peek of others already relishing it. Giving a hand at their Lamb Shredded Tacos, one can surely paint their taste buds with a tinge of local Mexican flavours as they serve a generous amount of meat wrapped in crispy taco shells with a side of hot salsa.

Sweetish House Mafia

We have known them for whipping up some tempting combinations of freshly baked cookies. SHM however ended up at this festivity in a car instead of a truck which sort of made them look unique. But if you just can’t resist some sweetness, try their Nutella salted cookies that can cheer you up even under the hot sun.

Paninaro

They are a leading chain that fulfills your craving desires of indulging in some exotic paninis, bagels and baquettes. However, it is also adding on to more sweetness, with soft and spongy muffins on the go. Their Blueberry Muffin is a tantalizing combination of baked goodness and just the right hint of berries.
