Ahmedabad Food Wagons
So we all love fine dine and the royal feeling it gives us. But nothing can beat street food, right? There was a time when street food just meant standing next to a pani puriwala and hogging yummy pani puris. Ahmedabad has lately seen an impressive rise in food trucks. Take any part of the city and you will find people thronging one food truck hogging on some lip smacking food. We bring you some of the best Ahmedabad food wagons that we have been to and crave for their dishes every, single day. Some of these may not exactly be the proper “four-wheeled” kind of trucks in the conventional sense, but if you are up for some lip smacking food, we show you where you must head towards. There is a long list; we have picked some of the best Ahmedabad Food wagons that we know of. On your marks, set, go!
1Salim Bhai’s Egg Buns

2Stuffs: Authentic Kulchas
Ever craved for Amritsari Kulchas in Ahmedabad? This is the place where you must head to. Stuffs doesn’t offer a long list of items, but believe us, it’s worth every bite. The kulchas are light and delicious. Served with chole, pickle and 2 chutneys, one cannot have enough of these. We do feel that it doesn’t have the exact Amritsari taste, it tastes a little more Amdavadi, but it’s surely worth a try.

3Om Sai Paratha
This family has taken street food to the next level. If you don’t have an appointment, you cannot eat here!

They can easily challenge a 5 star hotel and defeat it without a doubt. But, DON’T FORGET TO BOOK A TABLE. Their Aloo paratha, cheese paratha and 5 in 1 is a must try!
