Tokyo food trucks in Yurakucho

Just back from a trip to Tokyo and I had the opportunity to check out the food trucks that set up in front of the International Forum building in Yurakucho.  These trucks are soooo tiny and yet so efficient.  It was fun just watching them do their thing.

Yakisoba food truck

After walking by each truck several times, I decided on ebi-mayo-yakisoba. The chef in the truck had several eggs pre-cooked and waiting on a plastic lid, (I know sounds weird, but I had no worries that the food wasn’t fresh!) and once he stir-fried up the shrimp and noodles, he topped the dish with the egg.  It was tasty, fresh, fast and only 600 yen (about $7.00)!
