Scottsdale Food Truck Caravan

Last night we drove to Old Town Scottsdale for the monthly Scottsdale Food Truck Caravan. It is generally announced on the preferred social media channels of the day (that means Instagram, currently) by all of the food trucks involved.

They often use the hashtag #scottsdalefoodtruckcaravan when announcing the date.

Most of your favorite food trucks are involved on a rotating basis, including:

Affogato Truck
They serve coffee and desserts, as well as smoothies and other drinks. While I was there, they made a traditional macchiato for me.

Waffle Love AZ
One of my all-time favorite food trucks in the valley. They serve delicious Belgian Liege Waffles, which I’ve written about before. These are delicious, and they top them with a variety of fruits and ice cream or cream. Don’t miss them, if you spot their truck!

Spice It Up
They serve a variety of Thai and Asian dishes you’ll be familiar with, including a Panang Curry dish which I tried the other night. Surprisingly, it wasn’t anything like a Panang Curry… in fact, it was just a mix of rice, chicken, and grilled veggies. They threw on some curry, I think, but it wasn’t a curry dish as advertised. They also have a lemon chicken wrap entree, which sounded delicious but they had just sold out.

There are usually 8 – 10 different food trucks that show up, and so you can usually find a little bit of everything!

Getting there

They meet from 6 – 9:30 pm at the corner of 5th Ave. and Goldwater in Old Town Scottsdale. You can’t miss them, and parking is free along 5th Ave. We’ve always been able to find parking.

Waffle Love: Are these the best waffles in Arizona?

My family has a bit of a crush on the Waffle Love food truck.

Pretty much any time the waffle truck hits our part of town, we go. So, when they recently announced a fall special — pumpkin waffles, we had to go!


I’ve written about Waffle Love before, but this time I tried more of the options. Waffle Love, if you aren’t familiar with it, is a food truck that travels around the state providing tasty Belgium Liège waffles to any person who wants and pays for them.


Real Liège waffles are one of life’s little indulgences. They are caramelized sugar on delicious buttery-sweet waffle goodness beneath. They’re really delicious, and making a comeback. There are several food trucks and breakfast places in Arizona now serving them.


Briefly, I’ll just say the ingredients are always fresh at Waffle Love. The waffles are some of the best I’ve had, and they’re an excellent value, at around $6/each.

The pumpkin waffles were really quite good, and I hope they become an regular item on the menu. I have a suspicion it will make a comeback every October.
