BRIDES Florida: 5 Local Food Trucks for Your After-Party in Miami

Florida, Food & Drink, Local, Miami

Food trucks aren't reserved just for festivals and street fairs anymore. Weave this foodie trend into your wedding reception — rolling in some of the best names in town for a more formal spin on street eats that's anything but boring.

Ms. Cheezious
Cheese loving-brides and groom can rejoice: this grilled cheese-themed food truck has been a favorite since it started roaming Wynwood's streets five years ago, winning awards such as the South Beach Wine and Food Festival's People's Choice Award. Inspired by the delicious warm sandwiches that everyone loves to make, these grilled beauties are much more of the gourmet variety — with fillings like gouda, crab and prosciutto heated between slices of sourdough.

Arabian Knife
With a claim to fame as the only food truck in Miami serving up doner kebabs, the family-run Arabian Knife can bring an authentic version of Arabic cuisine to your reception. Serving classics like lamb shawarma pita sandwich, crafted with tender meat that's been marinating for 24 hours, your guests are sure to be satisfied. The truck can also prep the perfect starter selection of hummus, tabouli, and falafel — or add a sweet touch at the end of your big day with coffee service and bite-size pieces of baklava.

Brother Jimmy's BBQ
Inspired by South Carolina-style slow cooking BBQ, the three former NFL pros behind Miami's outposts of Brother Jimmy's started with store fronts — working backward from brick and mortar to their food truck, lovingly dubbed Sweet Sui. The truck makes the rounds at cook-offs across the region, grilling up its signature Southern fare. Brides wanting to add a Latin touch to these classic staples can have mojo ribs, La Caja China roasted pork, and yucca fries — delicious comfort foods to end the night!

Dim Ssam A Go Go by Sakaya Kitchen
For a gastro spin on southeast Asian cuisine, Sakaya Kitchen's mobile concept will definitely be a hit, especially if guests caught the restaurant on Food Network's "Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives" with Guy Fieri. Not only can you bring the truck right to the reception, but Dim Ssam A Go Go also offers full-service catering with servers and a liquor bar for one heck of an afterparty.

Marlie's Delights
Sure, you'll have a stunning wedding cake, but why not give your guests a buffet of desserts to nibble on at the end of the night? Marlie's Delights dessert truck really packs in the flavor with its freshly baked treats and cold options, which range from the maple bacon cake and s'mores brownies to caramel bread pudding sundaes. This food truck is a unique way to serve a dessert spread that goes way beyond standard cake pops and cupcakes.
