Their highlight includes New York styled chilli hot dogs, which, mind you, would remind you of the States, hickory-smoked barbeque chilli chicken pops, slow-cooked pork ribs, Cajun-spiced BBQ chicken burger etc. With a variety of smoking hot delicacies ranging from double bacon double chicken steak burger, grilled chicken wings and coleslaw burger, the truck has established itself on the streets of the IT Hub with its distinctive savoury flavour.
