Rickshaw Stop is a tiny food truck that sells Pakistani food in San Antonio. Using family-owned recipes and focusing on kebabs and samosas, Rickshaw Stop is one of the best food trucks in the city. If you like ethnic food, have never tried Pakistani food, or know it and love it, check out this truck for lunch or dinner.

The Kebabs

Kebabs are one of the most traditional types of Pakistani foods, and you’ll find plenty of them at Rickshaw Stop. All of the kebabs are marinated for a minimum of 48 hours to ensure that the meat is flavored to the maximum, and that it’s as tender and juicy as can be. The kebabs are then char-grilled over open flame, creating that smokey, fire flavor that is so delicious. Afterwards, the kebabs is served similar to a sandwich or taco inside some of the paratha, which is a flaky type of Pakistani bread. Then, cilantro, onions, and sauce are added. As such, if you want to try some delicious meat options–available in both beef and chicken–this is the place for you.

The Samosas

Just as good as the kebabs are the samosas, which are another type of traditional Pakistani food, sans meat if you’d like. Samosas are a type of pastry that’s then filled with an ingredient of choice–choose between beef, chicken, or veggies at Rickshaw Stop–and then deep fried. At Rickshaw stop, the minimum order is three of the same kind, and they’re served with a delicious sauce.

The Rice

Ordering some of the Tahiri rice to accompany your kebab is highly recommended, as this rice is some of the most delicious rice there has ever been. Basmati rice that’s made with potatoes, cucumbers, onions, tomatoes, and of course the traditional yogurt sauce, this is a great option for those who are vegetarians, vegans, or eating gluten-free.

The Sweets

Pakistani desserts are just as good as the food, and at the Rickshaw Stop, you can pick up a piece of baklava, or order some of the homemade Pakistani rice pudding, known as Kheer. If you have a sweet tooth and want to satisfy with something unique, definitely go for the rice pudding–it’s perfectly sweet, delicious, and healthier than other desserts! And the baklava is reportedly the best in Texas.

The Prices

The prices here are a little expensive for a food truck, but relatively cheap compared to other restaurants. A single kebab with two samosas will cost you $5, two kebabs and two samosas is $12, and the rice alone is $5. If it’s your first trip here though, go for the The Tony, which is two kebabs and two samosas, two beef and two chicken, and one beef and one chicken, because this way you get to try a little bit of everything.

The Experience

Those who eat here claim that this food truck is as good as it gets in terms of quality of food and authenticity. The family who owns and operates the food truck is kind and awesome to interact with, and the location of the food truck is equally as wonderful.
