We recently embarked on a giant adventure around Northern Ireland and we were blown away by the amazing food trucks that seemed to appear around every corner. 

Northern Ireland’s reputation for great food is not a recent thing. For decades visitors to Northern Ireland have been treated to the freshest seafood and local produce prepared at Michelin-level standards. Recently, a whole new culinary experience has been added to the mix – the glorious food truck. Outdoor enthusiasts are rejoicing as they can enjoy great quality food and coffee at the trailhead after a long hike or in the beach car park post-surf! It’s a match made in heaven.

Here we have rounded up our favourite food trucks in Northern Ireland. Be sure to let us know on Instagram if we have left anyone out!

Surrounded by ancient woodland, Fodder serves up a few select dishes using the very best local ingredients. While the Dexter beef is a particular highlight on the menu, Fodder also offers vegan and gluten-free options. In addition to the food, the setting is really what sets this place apart. You can enjoy your food in a teepee that is adorned with festoon lighting and open fires. It is a little slice of heaven.
