Where to find Luxembourg's best food trucks
There was a time when food vans equated with poor quality food and dubious hygiene standards.
Things have come a long way since then, and in Luxembourg you'll find a whole host of food trucks in and around the City and in the regions, offering delicious, organic, locally-sourced and freshly prepared food.
We recommend that you check the links in this article, as food trucks often change their location line-up.
If we've missed a food truck, let us know and we'll add it.
