Wokker is a modern cuisine food truck with the ideals to cumulate the flavors and aromas of Houston into unique dishes. Our goal is to hand craft flavors and ingredients from traditional Asian dishes and meld them with good old fashioned Southern Cooking, focusing primarily on Texas BBQ and comfort foods. The result is spices and cultures that blend harmoniously, like they’ve always belonged together and ultimately developing unique flavors in a way that is seldom done. The evolution of Houston’s cuisine is inevitable. The ideals of our company are much more than your average food truck. Wokker aims to create the perfect dish that delivers our message in one bite: This is Houston, always growing, always changing, but always delicious.
