Mangia Mangia is a San Diego food truck that offers gourmet Italian food. Owner Marko has a passion for Italian food, having worked as a waiter both in Italy and in the US for over 20 years before deciding to start his own food truck.
The truck has been opened just shy of a year and already was featured on Food Network/Cooking Channel’s “Eat St.” program. They were named one of the best San Diego food trucks by San Diego Union Tribune and recently took second place in a San Diego Food Truck Wars.
On Thursday nights, you can even get a 5 course meal for $20 when Mangia Mangia parks in front of the 57 Degrees Wine Shop in Mission Hills.
On FH’s visit, he chose the meatball panini sandwich ($7), and a side of fries.
He thought the sandwich was good, but not particularly impressive and a bit overpriced at $7.
He also got the homemade tiramisu which he enjoyed much more.
Marko was very friendly, answering all of FH’s questions and even posing for a picture. He invited us to check out his Thursday night prix fixe meal, which I hope to do so soon.
