The 5 finest bars with meals vehicles in Brooklyn
There’s no more typical Brooklyn bar experience than grabbing a cocktail and walking into the sparkling, brightly-lit backyard to grab a bite from the food truck that is permanently parked on site. Whether you’re in the mood for breakfast tacos or authentic Indian food, you’ll find the five best food truck bars in Brooklyn here.
We love Chilo’s for its not-too-sweet frozen margs, raicilla flights, and super-friendly service, but their taco truck in the back yard makes us return for more. Under the direction of Chef Chip, the truck has a delicious menu that’s so inexpensive that you can try a variety of dishes, from pork belly tacos to smoked beef torta. Vegetarians can also join in: our two favorite menus – Avocado Tostada and Huitlacoche Taco – are completely meat-free.
ADD drinkers will love this action-packed bar, which has 10 shuffleboard seats and delicious cocktails. Royal Palms welcomes a different food truck every night so you will never be bored even if you are a regular. Look out for souvlaki from Absolute Greek or authentic Indians from the Desi Food Truck.
Don’t go to Union Pool after 9pm on a weekend – unless you’re watching a show, under 22, or deeply hating yourself. As at any other time of the week, get out, have a beer, and head straight to the El Diablo taco truck in the sprawling, covered back yard. They serve everything from crispy fish tacos to tortas to cheesy elot, and offer a $ 10 breakfast taco and the Bloody Mary special that will kill even the most aggressive hangovers.
This South Williamsburg bar can get wickedly crowded, so it’s another place better to visit during weekday happy hour. If you do the hike, cheap drinks and delicious snacks from the country house await you on the terrace. Order one of their premium cheeseburgers or grab the grilled maple bacon stick.
Stepping onto Diamond Reef feels like leaving NYC and entering a tropical oasis. When you’ve got your share of fancy frozen drinks like the penichillin, head to the huge garden for a late night snack. The permanently parked food truck serves skewers of grilled meat, seafood, and vegetables to fill you up after a few hours of drinking.
