Best Food Truck: El Camion

The people have spoken.

It might sound crazy, but sometimes the simplest things are the most rewarding. And at the multiple El Camion food trucks, the rice and beans are a pure gift of minimalism. For diners wanting to go further, there are numerous breakfast choices like huevos rancheros and chilaquiles; a myriad of tacos (shrimp and fish); ceviche—and did we mention the bomb rice and beans? El Camion also has a brick-and-mortar spot in Ballard.
