28 Foodtruck : Beef Quesadilla at Gringo's Malaysia

Merry Christmas!

It's 3am. You must be wondering why I'm up at this ungodly hour. I'm also feeling pumped up to do 'something'. This, after taking in the magical scene of Christmas around town and several hearty meals earlier in the day. My spirits are high. There's an air of joyfulness that's hard to ignore. No alcohol involved in reaching this state. Grin.

Aah...that said, let me talk about my first trendy food truck experience! This is nothing like the lok-lok food trucks we're used to seeing. Although not a new concept in other parts of the world, it's a trend that's quickly catching on in Malaysia.

The story in short sentences.
Christmas eve. Late evening. What-to-eat-arh. Food truck? Vroom! Here we are at Gringo's Malaysia!

This food truck sells Mexican food.

I ordered a beef quesadilla takeaway, but changed my mind about eating it at home when I saw how inviting it was to enjoy my food under the stars.

It was so good to tuck into these - hot, cheesy and easy to bite into beef. Certainly felt like I was in some sort of food paradise with a cosy ambiance to match.

Me, waiting for my Beef Quesadilla

There were two other food trucks stationed in this area (Taman Tun, KL), both selling local fare.

But back to my beef quesadillas which I have no regrets forking RM13 for. Just to show you how cheesy it is:


It began to drizzle shortly into our meal. Machoman and I packed up our beef quesadillas and hurried to the car for cover. So much for a moonlit meal.. !

  2. A meal under the moonlight is quite fun ha! I imagine the meals becoming tastier. Not a fan of Mexican food though, but that beef quesadilla looked delicious.
