Food Heaven food truck - A true taste of Heaven

I have taste-tested my way around Saint Lucia to bring you the best food experiences on the island and a food truck that I stumbled upon in Mongiraud, Gros Islet is no exception.

It is called Food Heaven and as it name states, the chef surely takes you on a culinary journey to heaven.

Food Heaven is no ordinary food truck. They serve dishes that are not typically served on food trucks to create the ultimate dining experience for their customers.

From crispy, cheesy mini pizzas to creamy corn on the cob, Food Heaven is taking food truck dining beyond just chicken and fries.

Chicken cheesy nachos, garlic bread and alfredo pasta

I had the pleasure of sampling a few of their dishes and I must admit I was on a cloud. The alfredo pasta was comfort food on a whole other level. A bowl of creamy goodness. The curry bowl was another one which piqued my taste buds. It was tasty and was served with a crispy, light Italian bread.

I love garlic bread and was even more delighted at the fact that I can savor it from a food truck. It was everything I expected and more. Served with marinara sauce, it was a savory, crispy slice of joy in my mouth. As if I wasn’t filled enough, the chef introduced us to a new menu item – chicken cheesy nachos – and this one made my day. I call it ‘food bae’ because I had never had nachos that tasted so good.

Their customers are super crazy over their food, especially the fries with the ‘affi come back seasoning’.  It is a great spot for anyone who wants fancy food at a reasonable price. They even serve steak upon request.

The best part about this place is the outdoor setting. You can chill with your friends and did I mention there is a bar right next to the food truck with one of the best mixologists on island?

The bartender will mix you just about any drink, however, they do have their signature cocktails such as Food Heaven special, and mango and cherry cocktails.

The food is delicious, and the staff are friendly.

Make sure you don’t miss out on their silent headphone party.

Food heaven gets an absolute thumbs up from me.
