In recent years, American street food has grown into its own culinary subculture, and no city embraces this brave new culinary world like Seattle. Lucky for us, we’ve got an inside look at Seattle’s thriving street food scene from Seattle chef Matthew Lewis, as he shows around Los Angeles food truck operator Daniel Shemtob.

And what do we learn? The food truck scene in Seattle is next level! At every corner and in every pod (small communities of food trucks peppered around the city), you’ll find chef-driven meals based on fresh ingredients and innovative dishes. Many food trucks have even evolved into their own brick-and-mortar restaurants. It’s an exciting and affordably delicious way to eat in Seattle.

From the Space Needle, to Pike Place Market and Gas Works Park, to the annual Seattle Food Truck Festival, this street-food tour will leave you hungry for a trip to Seattle.
