Food trucks are hardly a new concept. They’ve always been common fixtures in big cities like New York and L.A., serving your typical “street foods” like hot dogs and tacos.

Happy Valley has been lucky enough to benefit from both of these things, with three amazing food trucks now serving our streets with just about every kind of food you could want.
