As a experiment Rotterdam starts with public food truck hotspots. As result you’ll find food trucks at a couple of places in the city centre. The locations are not next to each other, so you’ll have to walk to a specific place. One of our tips: the Luchtsingel square. This square is located underneath the famous Luchtsingel (yellow wooden bridge). You’ll find the start of the Luchtsingel at the Beergarten area. Check out this and other locations underneath.
