Seattle With Kids: Family Favorite Food Trucks in Seattle

After a full 2 weeks on our Pacific Northwest trip, we are finally home. We are still recovering from our trip. But today I just want to share one of our fond memory with food trucks experience in Seattle.

Seattle is definitely one of top foodie city I have visited. The varieties and quality of food & restaurants are one that we enjoyed tremendously during our trip.

We have spent just over a week in Seattle exploring and eating our way through the water front and Pike Place market. There will definitely be a more detail post on our many favorite eats soon.

For now, we want to share our family favorite food trucks in downtown Seattle.

The Maximus-Minimus: It’s Some Pig!

I have read about the Maximus-Minimus food truck online and made note to try to find them. Luckily, they are easy to find in Seattle. Locate at the parking lot at the SE corner of Pike St. & 2nd Ave it’s hard to miss this masculine looking pig truck.

The Maximus-Minimus like all other food trucks offers only a few items on their menu. That’s the whole point of the food truck, quality not quantity. Their menu features pulled pork sandwich, grilled chicken sandwich and veggie sandwich with a couple sides.

Coming from Atlanta where pull pork sandwich is almost as plentiful as drugstore in every corner in town, Mr. Rojo who has the affinity for all things barbeque gave 2 thumbs up for his pull pork sandwich from Maximus Minimus.

Street Donuts: Your Customized Mini Donuts

Right next to Maximus-Minimus truck in the same parking lot, the kids enjoyed their treat from Street Donuts truck where they ordered their own customized donuts by choosing from various choices of flavors to make their own topping.

Ms. J & Mr. Z enjoyed watching the donuts going through the conveyor belt and choosing their own topping. With creative topping like Nerds or typical topping like Cinnamon, the combination that you can create is plentiful. In the end, Miss J settled with Nerds & chocolate and it was one yummy creation!

  1. Love that one! The trucks in Vancouver were fabulous too, but these Seattle options seem like more kid-friendly fare.

    • They do and they also have the Seattle version of the Japadog there as well. But we didn’t try them.

      I’m sure you have more varieties in Portland. I have heard so much about the food truck explosion there. :)

      So glad to finally meet you in person!

      • Thank you so much for mentioning us in your blog! What a great combo for lunch – us and Street Donuts. Good call! We’re so glad you like our pulled pork!

  2. We are making a weekend stop in Seattle on our way to Alaska – gotta find the Maximus-Minimus truck! Such fun

  3. The street donuts looks like a winner to me. Too bad we don’t have many food trucks here in Florida, well at least none that I know about. The menu from Maximus-Minimus looks great as well love the license plate on it.
