Amsterdam food festival on wheels - Rollende Keukens

Rollende Keukens Instagram

Rolling kitchens is the translations of Rollende Keukens. The annual food truck festival in Amsterdam now in its 11th year.

Trucks, pickups, vans, trailers, buses and any object with wheels and is dispensing yummy food and drinks descends on Amsterdam's Westerpark. 
Good fun, food and music. A great combination for 5 days in May. 
Best thing is the free entrance.
There is no entrance fee . Also, as it is a public park you can bring your own seats, drinks and even food. There is alcohol available at the festival but many people stop off at the local super markets to stock up on beer and wine.
If the weather is fine expect large crowds and long lines. Amsterdammers love this food festival.
Tips for families and foodies
Go early and go on the first days. Lines can get very long late in the afternoon and at the end of the day when Amsterdam's large student population wakes up and demonstrate their multiplying skills.  
2017 Foodie favorites
Each year the best food trucks are awarded with long lines and a write up in Amsterdam's number 1 daily news source Het Parool. In 2018 look out for those from Het Parool's - De Beste Foodtrucks van de Rollende Keukens 2017 (only in Dutch).

Here is an summary but keep in mind many vendors change and the list below may not be in 2018 edition of Rollende Keukens.
- Jamaican Food  - Jerk chicken need we say more
- Benny Blij - a small restaurant away from the crowds - fish soup and risotto was a 2017 hit
