1. Singhs Vietnamese
7331 W. Loop 1604
With no shortage of food trucks parked around the city, the difficult choice of picking this year's best led us to one that stands apart from the crowded lot. You won't find Singhs Vietnamese at one of the city's food truck parks or regular downtown, bar-adjacent locales. The city's finest mobile eatery is parked on a tiny lot off the Loop 1604 access road, across the street from Hills and Dales ice house. Since opening in December 2012, San Antonio native Louis Singh's food truck has gained a rabid following with its menu of simple yet addictive Vietnamese fare ("a mother's Southern Vietnamese recipes, as told by her Texan son," the truck advertises). Open Monday through Saturday for lunch and dinner, Singhs dishes out noodle and rice bowls and the best bahn mi in town — seriously, order one with the 10-hour brisket. A number of sure bets stand out on the appetizer menu, including chili oil ribs, Singhs' spicy chicken wings and crispy shrimp or oyster goi, a tangy cabbage slaw for the indoctrinated. If you're an inner looper who deigns to leave the confines of Loop 410, just know Singhs is well worth the trip.
