When you have an event with such amazing leading-edge invention and creativity like the Houston Mini Maker Faire, the food must live up to that high standard. The same old high-priced soggy pizza and lukewarm soft drinks simply won’t do. So we’re proud to announce these gourmet food trucks will be serving at Maker Faire. They’ve been selected from the best of the best in the Houston area – the list includes trucks recognized nationally as leaders in this industry, and the burgers voted by the public as the best available in Houston (from any establishment).
Aracan Kitchen is not so much a food truck as a giant roaming gourmet kitch on wheels. Ara Malekian is an executive chef with years of gourmet experience and we can’t wait to taste what he whips up for Maker Faire.
