With the food truck craze taking Boston by storm, the Rose Kennedy Greenway is great destination to feed your hunger. Here is a quick list of Dewey Square Food Trucks/Carts:
Everyone has a sweet tooth deep down inside. Why not satisfy that craving with a unique and tasty cupcake? These all-natural, artisanal treats are baked from scratch on a daily basis. Stay simple with a chocolate or vanilla cupcake (they come in minis or regular sizes) with buttercream frosting, or let your taste buds go wild with the Cookie Dough: Chocolate chip cookie dough in a vanilla cupcake and vanilla buttercream frosting, topped off with chocolate sauce. Kick*ss Cupcakes: the name speaks for itself.

Clover Food Lab
Attention all vegetarians (and everyone else for that matter): The Clover Food Lab has parked. Dubbed as one of the 10 best lunch trucks in the U.S. by the Wall Street Journal, this popular breakfast and lunch truck offers an assortment of local and seasonal dishes. It also recycles cooking oil to power the truck. Try the chickpea fritter, french fries with rosemary, or if you’re only stopping by for breakfast, be sure to get the popover sandwich and give your mind the jumpstart it needs on a groggy Monday morning. Not only are the eats good, but the prices won’t burn a hole in your wallet. Everything on the menu is under $7.

Hold onto your grill! The BBQ Smith serves up some of the tastiest smoked meats (try the smoked chicken or pork sandwich with pickled veggies, tomato salsa, salsa verde and avocado lime), with unique side dishes that will make your mouth water. The husband-and-wife team behind this genius food truck pride themselves on their healthy American BBQ that includes all sandwiches on multi-grain baguettes, and yummy sides like garlic kale and black beans with cumin.

This Vietnamese-inspired food truck is one of the winners of the Food Truck Challenge, and new to the Dewey Square scene. The menu, which includes locally-sourced food, has dishes like brown or white rice bowls with pickled carrot and daikon, seasonal greens, bean sprouts, cilantro, scallions and a soy drizzle, as well as a soba or buckwheat noodle salad, veggies and your choice of three delectable dressings. If you think your rice or noodle bowl is missing something, choose between three fillings: spice-rubbed all-natural chicken, barbequed pork, and for all of you vegetarians there is organic tofu and shitake mushrooms.

Just to stir up your taste buds even more, Momogoose offers a variety of minimum-calorie food with maximum flavor. This Southeast Asian cuisine is slow-cooked, but won’t make you late for that afternoon meeting. According to rosekennedygreenway.org, the Momogoose recipes are developed by a scientist-chef to make sure you don’t expand your waistline or lose any flavor. Choose a baguette, rice bowl, noodle bowl, or salad (all of which come with a variety of veggies) and add a protein or side dish. The proteins include anything from Korean BBQ, to Asian teriyaki chicken, to Thai peanut chicken or tofu.
