Finding the perfect wine to go with your favorite street food

Food Truck Pairings The food truck craze is only growing in size and popularity across the country, so how to differentiate yourself among the mobile pack? Well, introducing booze into the mix is always one easy way.

We recently found out the the New York-based Pera Turkish Taco Truck will be permitted to sell beer, wine and cocktails to its customers. Under the year-long liquor license (the first of its kind), all alcoholic beverages will have to be consumed within an enclosed seating area outside the space formerly occupied by the city's famed Tavern on the Green in Central Park, where the truck is parked.

While this certainly represents a coup for the Pera Turkish Taco Truck, not all food trucks in the Big Apple have been granted this luxury - yet. We've rounded up a few of our favorite mobile food peddlers and come up with a wish list of adult beverages to accompany their signature dishes, should they ever decide to apply for a liquor license of their own (hinthint, nudgenudge).

Do you have a favorite food truck in your town? Don't forget to tell us what you'd pair with your go-to order below!

    I love this article - what a great idea. Can't really call it 'on-premise' I guess?

    I loved this. What possessed the site to write that article about MikeyD's and wine, though? Still a bit traumatized by it.
    This article rocked.
