Food truck operators are combining global cuisines into a portable, palatable package. Such handheld hybrids may include a British banoffee pie bao, featuring bananas, cream, cinnamon and toffee, on a Chinese steamed bun. There’s also sizzling egg crepes, an Asian wrap that may be stuffed with regional American fillings, such as smoky pork, crisp slaw and sauce. Another mashup features arepas, a South American crispy corn cake, filled with Greek gyro meat and tzatziki sauce.
