A classic grilled cheese sandwich, Kraft singles and all, has the Proustian capacity to evoke memories of childhood. But sometimes adulthood needs its own grilled cheeses—and that's where American Meltdown excels. The menu combines fancy cheeses (like chevre, Gouda, Havarti, or Manchego) with surprising fruits, herbs, meat, and sauces and grill it all between slices of locally baked bread from Guglhupf. The truck's true secret lies not on the sandwich menu but on the list of sides: the fried Brussels sprouts absolutely steal the show. —Iza Wojciechowska

There's no fusion at Bo's. The focused menu features homespun Korean recipes, incorporating sharp kimchi and velvety gochujang where it counts. The truck bills itself as authentic, and it's hard to argue that its no-fuss approach is anything but that. The mandu are a treat­—loose dumplings wrapped around your choice of meat (pork is a must-try). ­—Victoria Bouloubasis

The family behind Boricua Soul is unabashedly pushing for nuance in its self-proclaimed Puerto Rican-inspired soul food. Which is why this soul has heart. The chefs have a flair for combining historic ingredients of their African and Carribean roots with nouveau Southern-Latino methods of cooking. To start, try a few of their creative empanadas, like the BBQ stuffed with a slow-roasted Eastern Carolina-style pork or the Green Beans and Queso with collards, queso fresco, black-eyed peas, and black beans. Your brain may not know what to do with this mismatch, but your palate will be delighted. ­—Victoria Bouloubasis
