An indoor pop-up food truck park featuring a handful of the coolest independent outlets will spring up in Al Quoz in August.
Running from August 10 to September 3, Hangry Hangar will be held inside Warehouse Four in the industrial area of the city. It's message is clear; 'a cool place to hangout during the scorching summer heat'.
Free Wifi and air con will be available throughout the venue, which held one of the most popular and unique iftars during Ramadan, causing quite a stir with their unique decorative use of warehouse space.
Featuring six popular, locally developed trucks, including Yumtingz, Calle Tacos and The Shebi, food will be served at Hangry Hangar from 8am to 11pm Sun-Wed, and until midnight on weekends.
'Low key chill out' is the message for the daylight hours, while 'turning up the tempo' is most definitely on the cards for later with a range of entertainment planned right across the three-week run.
Joining the trucks mentioned, are Onion Caramel, The Marigold Baker & Co, and Gobai, all of which are profiled below.

WHO WILL BE THERE
These guys are not really as Caribbean as they sound, but don’t let that deter you from giving the menu a try, because you’ll find some very yummy ‘tingz’ on it. Think burgers, including a camel meat option, sides such as truffle fries, and salads including roasted root or quinoa tabbouleh. They also have two more concept trucks, including a deli.
Created by a husband-and-wife team, Calle Tacos literally means ‘street tacos’ in Spanish and takes its inspiration from LA’s Mexican food culture, serving tacos (of course), nachos, burritos and quesadillas.
This truck’s focus is on street food fusion, built around the flavours of Goa, brought to you here in Dubai. Hence the name. Beyond the food, there is also an ethical arm to this concept, because it will be using biodegradable packaging, as well as other carbon footprint-friendly kitchen practices.
A fusion of both Indian and Lebanese cultures – think shwarma style chicken wrapped in paratha.
The Marigold Baker & Co
The perfect place for breakfast, the team specialise in coffees and cakes... but it's the crumbly chocolate brownies you want to make space for. Ok, so not just breakfast then...
