Art Basel Food Guide: Food Trucks

Aleloop
Food trucks will follow the Aleloop Minis around town for Art Basel.
Art Basel is coming to town, turning the entire city into a roving band of art connoisseurs. Each year, we travel to pop-up art galleries and tents filled with shards of broken glass, painted bananas, interactive tunnels, and sometimes even the occasional paint-on-canvas.

Pondering all this art gets us hungry. After stopping at 37 galleries (with another 50 more on the list), we need to stop for some refreshment. Unfortunately, sitting down at a restaurant can infringe on our gallery time. Which is why food trucks come in handy.

Food trucks will be out and about -- at galleries, roundups, and as part of an art installation. We've put together a list of roundups and where to find individual trucks at Art Basel events. The list will be updated as we get more locations. As always, it's a good idea to follow your favorite trucks on Twitter and Facebook and check Short Order daily.

Roundups and Caravans

Throughout the weekend, a rotating caravan of food trucks will be traveling throughout the Design District, Midtown, and Wynwood following the Aleloop Mini's with the Aleloop Mobile Art Installation. From December 1-4, a caravan of ten Mini Coopers will travel the streets of Miami. At each stop, 40 performers will pop out of the cars and create a multisensory flash mob.

Rotating trucks include Dim Ssam a gogo, Latin Burger, The Fish Box, Ms Cheezious, CheeseMe, gastroPod, Sugar Rush, Sugar Yummy Mama, Latin House Grill, and Cheesesteak Gourmet
