Those who starve in the street worry about food security. But, according to research, we can face the various options that appear with eyes closed. The quality of food on wheels accelerates the preference for food trucks.
The fashion of snack traillers, repurposed as food trucks, has taken its toll. In addition to the visual appeal, the remarkable thing is that the fan achievement has been due to the quality and hygiene presented. Always questioned by these questions, an Institute for Justice study in seven US cities found that they are cleaner than restaurants.
The analysis of complaints to the public health agency in these cities revealed more satisfied customers being served on the sidewalk than in traditionally established homes. A total of 263,395 reports were compared. The complaints to those who serve food in adapted cars or wagons did not surpass that of restaurants, quite the opposite.
In this regard, in six of the cities studied - Boston, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Louisville, Miami, and Washington, D.C - the food trucks were better. In Seattle, there was no difference in performance. The hypothesis is that because they have smaller and less complex kitchens, it is easier for trucks to maintain hygiene.
As this happens in the United States, we also see a trend spreading across our cities. For example, the city of Sao Paulo has approved its performance only recently. Among those who operate here is the Buzina Food Truck (photo).
I wonder if we should have the same confidence. Just in case, prefer to make your own food. The tip is to always ensure a healthy option nearby for that quick lunch or post workout snack like some good sandwiches - see the recipes here.
