The food truck scene here in Tucson rivals those of much bigger cities, and is hardly limited to the common (albeit delicious) border fare you see scattered about every street corner. David Aguirre’s Tucson Food Truck Roundup gathers the area’s most venerated mobile restaurants in a congregation of flavors you’d be hard pressed to find elsewhere, making a tastebud trip around the world as simple as hopping from truck to truck.

The Roundup is setting up camp tonight from 5 to 8 p.m. at Window Depot, 5123 E. Speedway Blvd., with MaFooco, The Rolling Chef, Jackie's Food Court, You Sly Dog, German Food Station, Kadooks!, Jamie's Bitchen Kitchen and more in attendance. Kadooks! (pictured above) brings Costa Rican and Caribbean cuisine to the Southwest in a beach-inspired vessel with breakfast, lunch and dinner offerings. According to the truck’s Facebook page, they’re rolling out the new Kristine’s Empanadas, packed with bean, cheese, red onion and chorizo: only 20 of these babies will make it off the truck, so try to snag one before they’re gone.

Two more Roundup events are scheduled for this week: Saturday, Feb. 9, at the Human Society of Southern Arizona, 3450 N. Kelvin, and Sunday, Feb. 10, at Himmel Park near Speedway and Tucson Boulevard.

For a complete schedule of events and locations, visit the Tucson Food Truck Roundup website or Facebook page. You never know, the Roundup just make be making a visit to your neighborhood.
