Wedding traditions change over the years and while many have gone out the door over time, one thing will always be as important as ever – the food. While it may be far from crepes and poutine we were raised on, there’s no denying that once a van emitting some seriously inviting aromas rolls up, we’re all over it. Today we’re taking a look at some of the best food and drink trucks and stations on the Irish market at the moment. From post-ceremony sorbets to garlic and cheese covered chips at midnight, you’re sure to find something tasty to treat your guests to below!
La La Poutine
The cult comfort food of chips, cheese and gravy is a Canadian and US favourite, and La La Poutine have been dishing it out to Irish food enthusiasts from their vibrant 1977 Renault Estafette since late last year. Now a staple on the food circuit, La La Poutine also provides a great service for weddings and is perfect for evening eating or next-day devouring. We’ve no doubt this will be a hit with guests – try the La La Bacon, you’ll soon be calling yourself a poutine convert too! Find out more at lalapoutine.ie
Another gorgeous little food truck delivering mouthwatering comfort food to the ravenous is the wonderful Home Fries. At its core, Home Fries is all about fried baby potatoes, which are then drizzled with curry sauce, lathered with chipotle or sprinkled with scrumptious slow-roast BBQ pulled pork. I’ll have the patatas bravas, and it’s a chorizo and red pepper for himself. Find out more at homefries.ie
Seeking out something different for your wedding feast? The South African style Challas Roast could be right up your street! Challas can cater a full wedding, from Champagne arrivals to tea, coffee and desserts to finish and with the main event of a full spit roast with all the salad trimmings one could dream of, guests are sure to have their fill.

The Crepe Box
A sweet is always going to go down a treat and for post-ceremony munchies we’re loving The Crepe Box. The Crepe Box serves up delicious freshly made crepes – sweet and savoury – using the finest ingredients including organic free range eggs and local Irish produce where possible. For something sweet we’re going with the Fresh Berries, Strawberry Coulé & Bourbon Ice-Cream crepe, for savoury, the Brunch Crêpe of Organic Egg, Smoked Rashers, Melted Cheddar & Tomato Relish, by two.

Fresh wood-fired pizza anyone?! Em… yes please! The amazing Dough Kitchen have become a huge hit at weddings up and down the country and after sampling a slice of their thin and gooey triangular goodness at a wedding only two weeks ago, I can see why couples go crazy for them. Dough Kitchen are passionate about pizza, using only the finest ingredients – their home-made Pomodoro Sauce is made daily using San Marzano tomatoes, their base of wholemeal organic sourdough and ’00’ grade flour is developed over two days for maximum taste and their cheese is sourced locally from their Fivemiletown Goat’s to the award-winning Knockdrinna Brewers Gold.

The Vintage Vanp
If it’s a cool retro vibe you’re after for your drinks reception, the Vintage Vanp may be just the ticket. Mae – the beautifully restored 1970s campervan – serves up an array of tasty beverages for post-ceremony drinks receptions including bubbles, sodas, teas and scones and anything else you can imagine! A fab addition to a wedding day and a wonderful backdrop for photos too! Find out more at vintagevanp
Adare Farm Ice Cream
Ice cream vans are always going to be a hit with wedding guests, particularly post-ceremony on a sunny summer’s day! Adare Farm’s Ice Cream cart is one of the prettiest on the market at the moment, and their ice cream – locally produced from their Pedigree Friesian dairy herd – is melt-in-the-mouth fantastic. Dairy-free guests will appreciate their luxurious sorbets and if ice cream is your thing but you’re getting hitched in the colder months, the hot Belgian waffle and ice cream pairing should be right up your street!

The Chip Van
There’s nothing quite as satisfying as a late night burger and chips to finish off a good session, and handily enough The Chip Van dishes out all the particularly delicious things we crave just before midnight! Juicy beef burgers, delectable hot dogs and beautiful battered cod are some of the more notable highlights, but you’ll find us in the queue for garlic cheese chips every time.
