Well…hmm taking over, this invasion is limited to festivals and events only since regulations in Holland are very strict and complex for mobile vendors. If finally an entrepreneur is appointed to a public place, it is only open for junk food like hotdogs and fries.
Still step by step the rolling kitchen scene is getting more recognition. For instance the city of Amsterdam started a pilot project where in different areas entrepreneurs are permitted to sell food check: https://www.amsterdam.nl/ondernemen/markt-straathandel/pilot-voedselwagens/ Moreover the list of specific food truck festivals is growing in the bigger cities.
The name of this festival itself is already appealing. Food and drink festival representing different kinds of food. However very standard things like tosti, waffles and curros.
