Tips / Destination

Apparently the best food truck in Europe is a taco truck situated in Copenhagen. Some 73 food experts, including Michelin-starred Noma chef Rene Redzepi, along with international bloggers, industry experts and food writers, compiled a long list of contenders throughout Europe. And easyjet Traveller magazine collected the results.

Coming in first place is a Mexican taco stall called Hija de Sanchez. The truck started operations in 2015, and suddenly rocketed to world fame. Owner Rosio Sanchez combines Latin spices with Nordic ingredients for a unique combination. Her stall is at Torvehallerne, and she also has a newly opened restaurant called Vesterbro.

The top 10 list is as follows:

  1. Hija de Sanchez, Copenhagen
  2. Sea Me at the Time Out Market in Lisbon, which does Japanese/Portuguese fusion food
  3. Alain Miam Miam in Paris, whose grilled buckwheat galettes are loaded with organic vegetables
  4. AmsterDAM Good Cookies in The Netherlands, who sell the famous stroopwaffles
  5. Mordi e Vai in Rome, where traditional Italian staples like simmered brisket sandwiches, tongue and tripe are the order of the day
  6. BERLIN in Berlin, Germany, a kimchi/poutine mash-up
  7. Aleppo Bahebek, an Oslo-based shawarma joint staffed entirely by Syrian refugees
  8. Lángos Máshogy in Budapest, which blends hipster and traditional
  9. Korvar Kiosk, a Stockholm hotdog stand run by larger-than-life local celeb, Günter
  10. Yum Bun in London, which is a multisite bao bun institution

Hotel Bonaventure

While the snow continued to fall at a steady clip, my taxi pulled up outside Hotel Bonaventure Montréal. A quick departure from my cab and a few steps later, I was taken in by the distinctive style of the entrance corridor. A quick elevator ride to the lobby is necessary because Hotel Bonaventure Montréal sits on the final two floors of a 17-story business and professional complex. The hotel is located in the heart of downtown Montréal, and even connects to the city’s underground concourse.

Work and Play in Italy

Once business concludes, a world of wonder awaits in many of Italy’s incredible cities.

Enjoy the Open Road on Your Terms

For most of us, time in the car is “me time.” You can listen to that podcast you’re captivated by, blast that pop song and sing along at the top of your lungs or listen to the next chapter in that biography e-book you’re almost finished. A road trip only amplifies those opportunities. So, next time you’re traveling by road, take the wheel and take control. Opt for a rental car on your next vacation, rather than a rideshare, taxi or public transportation, and enjoy the open road on your own terms.
