When I first heard of Food Traveler Truck, I was thrilled: a food truck that serves escargot -- you can't get much more gourmet than that. The Food Traveler Truck has one of, if not the most, unique menus of any truck rolling today. Everything is inspired by the owners' travels across the globe. I love the concept of bringing street food of the world to the streets of DFW.

On this visit I had the Mandu or Korean dumplings

The order came with five nice sized dumplings, filled with bulgogi beef and lightly fried to a perfect softness. These dumplings had the great flavor of various spices, and the meat was filling. The side of sauce enhanced the flavors. I could see myself snacking on these for hours, order after order.

I also ordered the jerk wings.

The wings are described as Asian fusion meets jerk chicken, and it's the perfect definition. I LOVED these wings. The flavors are amazing; not too hot, but full of spices that linger after the bite is finished. The wings come with a side of ranch, but I felt like that toned down the flavor of the spices, so after one bite I reserved the ranch for the side of celery.

I've also heard great things about Food Travler's Belgian frites; I'm saving those and the escargot for my next visit.

I love this truck. It's what I'd wish for all trucks in DFW: unique food with great taste. You can follow Food Traveler on Facebook and Twitter to find out where there will be next. They are primarily in Fort Worth, but on a regular basis are venturing to Dallas and Irving; on Saturday, July 20, will be in Addison.
