Belle’s on Wheels
You’ll need both hands (and a napkin) to eat the sliders served by this new Kittery truck. Customers love the Big Belle, a gourmet play on the Big Mac, featuring ground brisket patties, Thousand Island dressing, American cheese, pea shoots, and a slice of orange tomato. Parking lot at Tributary Brewery, 10 Shapleigh Rd., Kittery. 508-380-4938. belles-on-wheels.com
Maine food blogger Malcolm Bedell plans to open his mobile lunch spot amid Rockland’s burgeoning food scene. On the menu: upscale, comforting sammies like grilled cheese with chorizo and fried potatoes and curried chicken with fennel and dill. Rockland. wichplease.me
Bite Into Maine
The only truck that has a lobster roll for every palate, from traditional (light mayo and chives) to adventurous (butter, celery salt, wasabi, curry, and chipotle). Fort Williams Park, 1000 Shore Rd., Cape Elizabeth. 207-420-0294. biteintomaine.com
Authentic Mexican tacos and indulgent specialties like the Sonoran Hot Dog — wrapped in bacon and topped with salsa, beans, cheese, guacamole, and mustard. Portland. 207-200-4801. elcorazonfoodtruck.com
Picking one of Joe’s 45 flavored cannoli might be the toughest decision you make during summer 2015. Margarita, cookie dough, maple bacon, brownie sundae, Italian cookie, apple crisp, peaches ‘n’ cream, chocolate peanut butter pretzel . . . better get a dozen just to be safe. Portland. 207-653-3624. cannolijoesmaine.com
