When choosing food, knowing where it comes from / where it was produced is a big bonus for me. Knowing that the ham I eat at lunch break comes from a small farm near Parma, produced from wild black pigs in traditional (and ethical) ways, transported to London without being frozen, prepared by an Italian whose family is involved in the industry for several generations, and sold in a family-owned customised three-wheel Piaggio van, is a massive bonus too. This is why Gurmetti is one of my favourite food trucks in London, as I strongly feel Italian authenticity, and use of quality fresh products in simple combinations.


I like small, simple and authentic stuff. Why would I prefer a huge truck selling greasy bread chunks with pizza flavourings to this three wheeler, which looks like it just parked here after a short journey on narrow dusty  Italian village roads under hot sun?
