Catered and bar tended my daughters wedding... Fantastic! The staff I have to say were the greatest, we couldn't have asked for better people great all evening and cleaned up at the end of the night so quickly and efficiently. Food was delicious, everyone love the menu we'd chosen, lots of choice and all good quality, tasty dishes that people enjoyed and wanted more. All in all this team helped make our evening fantastic. Thank you. I'd highly recommend anyone looking for catering to contact these guys, they know what they are doing! More...

You guys are awesome.  Our guests raved well into the weekend and i think a few of them are looking to hire you.   They asked for your number.  Thanks again to you and your staff. More...

There is a reason why there are so many 5 star reviews for this company... they are simply the best.  Jordan could not have been any more helpful than he was.  From our first email to his goodbye wave as they drove away - the whole process and experience was first class.  I hired Curiocity to cater my husbands retirement party.  90+ folks at my home.  Everyone raved (and are still raving) about the food.. the service.. the friendliness of everyone involved.  This company understands what it means to provide a service and they are so very good at it.  Do not hesitate to hire this company for your event - you will not be disappointed.

We had a backyard wedding. We wanted it to be causal and elegant at the same time. CurioCity Catering completely understood our vibe and was able to create a catering experience that was just that. Choosing a venue space that is not specifically made for wedding can be tricky and because of this we had to rely on our caterer for multiple services. Jason’s team was our caterer, our bartenders, they helped convert the space from ceremony to reception, they cleared the tables, they took care of all of our barware and utensils. Side note**We choose to use the verterra fallen leaf dinnerware which looks almost like a rustic bamboo. Loved this! It’s biodegradable and looks amazing. Jason’s teams service was all around excellent. Beyond the service, the food was incredible. We loved everything at our food tasting. It was actually hard to pick which items because everything was so good. We ended up going with the sliders, lamp chops, max&cheese, and strawberry goat cheese salad. So good! We were very happy with our experience and highly recommend! More...

Curiocity Catering did an amazing job for our wedding in June 2019. The quality of local fresh ingredients was exactly what I was looking for, and the menu options were so delicious we had to choose them all! As a bride who doesn't drink anymore, the food was very important to me, it did not disappoint. Everything was delicious! For apps we chose jidori chicken tacos and the charcuterie board, which they adorned with beautiful fresh flowers. I was all about the lamb chops and strawberry goat cheese "seduction" salad, and the vegans couldn't get enough of the farmers market veggie risotto. For our less adventurous eaters, we chose the all beef sliders, which were so juicy and delicious my husband ate 3 of them, on top of everything else haha. Owner and head chef Jason was a blast to work with, very professional and provided tasting for us as soon as we were ready. As planning everything else for the wedding got really stressful, Jason made the whole food process a breeze. All in all, I would definitely hire Curiocity Catering for future events. More...

Curiocity was recommended to us by our wedding coordinator. We went to a tasting and were wow-ed with how amazing this food was. We booked them for our wedding, which was this last weekend, and were wow-ed even more that it was even better than the tasting!! Beautiful, upscale food with classics like sliders, Mac and cheese, and summer salad. Every guest took the time to tell us about how amazing the food was, and I couldn't agree more! Beyond that, this company was easy to work with and reasonably priced. 10/10!! WILL be using them for future events!! More...

I really wanted to give them 5 stars but... Service was great, from the day of the tasting to the day of the event. Shawnta is the best! The day of the event, one of the staff didn't not show up, putting them a bit behind the curve (however they allowed me to use what I had paid for that person as a tip so it worked out). I originally booked them for 75 people but then changed it to 65 (but I kept the dinner portion at 75ppl) with no issues. I ordered the cheese board and lamb lollipops for cocktail hour. The cheese board had a good selection but the way it was displayed needed some work, looked a bit cheap. The lamb was amazing, unfortunately some of my guest didn't get any because the servers ether didn't get to everyone or they were stopped by the same people multiple times. For dinner we had the strawberry salad, sliders, parmesan fries and crab risotto. Slider and fries we are amazing and cooked perfectly. All portions were just right. I was under the impression that the salad was to have coco covered almonds, which it didn't and had much less goat cheese than it had when I had it at the tasting, it almost looked like it was replaced by parmesan or something. The big disappointment was the crab risotto. I am not a crab person but at the tasting it was amazing, so knowing that others love seafood it thought it would be a big hit. The day of the wedding I found it was to fishy to eat and so did some others. More...

Curiosity Catering catered our wedding and it was AMAZING! Our guests are still talking about the delicious food from cocktail hour to dinner. Each option was delicious, fresh, and unique. With so many delicious choices it was hard to narrow down exactly what to serve but Jason was extraordinary at listening and narrowing down the selection. He helped me ensure our guests would be delighted, full, and always cautious about budget. We can't wait to hire the whole team again for another event just to taste their food again. It was phenomenal. More...

We had a great time with Jason and his crew!  Jason was the perfect fit for our event.  He listened to our requirements and presented a simplified list of options that would work for our unique event.  This is what won us over from his competitors who dumped long menus on us and asked us to do figure out what would or would not work without any intimate knowledge of each item.  His operational model using his food trucks is very flexible, kept our kitchen available to the party and was very price competitive.  Jason is a great guy!  He's lots of fun, very ambitious and accommodating.  Highly recommend!

Sooooooo my friend/neighbor calls and asks me to find a catering company to help make his 50th special! Talk about pressure! Nothing I can't handle though! I reached out to 3 companies! Curiocity not only got back to me quickly, Shawnta Wiley was amazing. The other 3-companies were slow to respond! I'm a super detailed person and like to hash out the vision, food, and make sure the vision is in alignment every step of the way! Shawnta nailed it. Not only was the process great but the execution flawless. The food was amazing and of course I got to be the hero! Lol! We decided to have to food truck walk around and pass out appetizers and let me tell you, that's the way to do it, no lines and as guests we are talking, snaking on the yummy cheese crackers platter they set out and being served yummy food! I also had an opportunity to meet the owner! What a sweet passionate guy who definitely cares about his team and customers. I'm desperate to host a party of my own and hire these guys. I swear as soon as I get settled in my new home! Yum! You can't go wrong! So reasonable and so worth it! Thanks guys! More...

My husband hired them to cater my 50th birthday at our home.  They set up their truck in the driveway and walked around our yard and house with trays of food.  They also also set up a beautiful cheese platter w/ crackers on a table in the backyard (I wish I had a picture to post!) We had salmon tacos, sliders, strawberry salad and truffle fries.  Everything was delicious and the staff was great- friendly and on top of it!  Would definitely recommend and hire again. More...

CurioCity catering catered my wedding last fall, and it was the best decision we made! Everyone loves tacos, sliders, fries, salad, and risotto served on an eco friendly dried leaf plate. The food is exceptional. Excuse me, parmesan truffle fries, not just plain ol' fries. Wild mushroom risotto, jidori chicken tacos, etc., etc. YUM!!! Co-owner Jason is awesome, I felt he took the time to get to know me through the process. He's passionate about his product and service. He is easy to talk to and work with, and is always polite. Great mixture of an awesome concept, tasty eats, and customer service! More...

We hired Curiocity catering for our wedding on May 18, 2018. Our guests raved about the food and how having a gourmet food truck is such a cool idea for a wedding! Totally what we wanted since my husband and I are leaning more into a less traditional but fun and memorable wedding. Thank you Shawnta for being patient with us! We probably changed the menu at least 4x and she was very flexible and understanding by keeping our budget in mind. More...

My wife and I hired Curiocity Catering for our wedding in April.  Jason and his staff were great to work with.   We really had a great experience and the food was amazing.  Here are a couple highlights:Jason did a great job explaining all the choices and options and he even went above and beyond with some of our specific requests.  We had a tasting meeting with him before the wedding and were very comfortable choosing Curiocity Catering.  Leading up to the wedding, Jason was easily accessible and we often would receive emails from him prior to us having to reach out. You could tell he was working on our wedding well in advance of the date.  I felt relieved that he was well organized and wouldn't be cramming last second.  On our wedding day, we had a lot of guests but the Curiocity team did a great job feeding the guests in a timely fashion and the food was just as we tasted during our tasting consultation.  He stayed until the very end, attentive to all the details.  My wife and I couldn't be happier with working with Curiocity Catering.  Jason is a great guy, hard worker, and passionately cares about his service.  We had a wonderful experience and would hire him again in a heartbeat!

I was watching the presentation of the food and was really enjoying the way the chef was describing the ingredients and preparation to a client.

Having a food truck at our wedding was so much fun. We served tacos and a cheese board for cocktail hour and burgers, mac & cheese, and salad for dinner. Shawnta is the most organized person and made things so incredibly easy. My only qualm was that our guests wanted a little more food so I would order extra especially if you're doing an early afternoon (3pm-10pm) wedding like we did. Overall great food and great service and when you're planning a wedding, that's what counts. More...

People are still talking about the amazing food at our wedding! I am so happy that we went with Curiocity. When we were choosing a caterer for our downtown wedding, it was really important to us to provide food to our guest that we actually enjoyed eating. Curiocity has such a fantastic selection and every item in their truck is fresh and mouthwateringly delicious. We ended up going with tray passed appetizers and sliders, fries, and salad for the main meal. The truck looked great outside our venue, and they served all 115 of our guests in under 20 minutes. The crew was so full of joy and laughter, which was such a blessing on the most joyful day of my life. (One moment that touched me was when they served a homeless man outside our wedding a plate of food.) This is a company that I am proud to support. I would recommend them to anyone looking for delightful food and delightful people to accompany their wedding day! More...

If I could give 10 stars, I would. My husband and I chose Curiocity Catering for our January wedding based on a recommendation from a friend who had nothing but amazing things to say about them. Without hesitation, we booked with Jason and we are so happy that we did. We chose to have service from the truck because of the vibe we wanted for our wedding and it was one of the best decisions we made for our big day. The amount of compliments we received from our guests about not only the food but the service from Jason and his crew was incredible! All night our guests made comments about how amazing the food tasted and how accommodating the staff was. Jason even used what he had to accommodate a guest that had several allergies. Talk about service!! We are so grateful to Curiocity Catering for the work that they did to help make our day so special! They exceeded all of our expectations. Thank you so much Jason and Curiocity staff! You guys rock!!! I would hands down recommend Curiocity to anyone needing catering services. More...

This review is way overdue. Jason and his team at Curiocity Catering have been our go to caterer for many years now. Not only have we had his team cater our private events at our farm, but also my father-in-law's company annual picnic several years in a row. Curiocity is also a preferred vendor for our wedding venue. Don't be fooled by the food truck. These guys are full service at our weddings and offer bartending staff, service staff and event coordination if needed. They have repeatedly gone over and above at every event and are a wonderful vendor team member. Jason and his team mates are also some of nicest, friendliest people you could ever meet. The food is delicious, hot and fresh every time. Every menu item has been elevated from the sliders, amazing salad, parmesan fries, lamb pops (my favorite), everything is delish. I highly recommend Curiocity Catering to anyone wanting to give their guests beautiful, locally sourced and "above the ordinary" food and event staff. More...

When it comes to finding the right catering service for a company holiday party, Curiocity Catering delivers above and beyond every single time. Jason and his team has been serving our annual holiday party for the past 5 years. We appreciate the ease of communication with Jason, which we all know can become tricky at this busy time of year. But Jason always followed up with us to make sure we were right on track to having another fantastic party.The food is exceptional. Everything is seasoned and cooked to perfection. The menu is very fresh and healthy, and has extensive options. The food is cooked right on site in the food truck, and then tray passed around our office. Everyone at our company can easily say that we all anxiously await for the delicious chicken wantons, lamb loli-pops, and parmesan truffle fries throughout the whole year! So good!We highly recommend Curiocity Catering! More...

We had an Open House / Grand Opening at our business in San Marcos, Quick Charge Power LLC. We build Electric Vehicle (EV) charging equipment.Jason quoted a price for the menu that he provided. First, we intended to feed 50, then 75, then 100, then 120. It was no problem to get these changes, even as we approached the bewitching hour.The only small glitch was a call that I got an hour before the event that they would be late. I had visions of a mob of angry people demanding food, but thankfully we had #Stumblefoot Brewery behind us to keep everybody liquored up on what turned out to be one of the hottest days of the year.Fortunately, the Curiosity truck was only about 5-10 minutes late, and most people didn't show up at exactly the beginning, so it wasn't even a hiccup for us.The food was absolutely "delish" (small tasty slider burgers with beef or veggie, french fries with a twist, fish tacos, and something else that I don't remember).People actually commented on the food, which was a plus on this hot day. The entire event was professionally handled, with very little interaction by me. I would highly recommend them.Tony WilliamsFounder / CEO More...

If you want a perfect event, hire Curiocity Catering!  Researched food trucks for our annual Del Mar Races Opening Day office party and found them through the high reviews on Yelp.  Attended one of their tasting sessions and was thoroughly impressed with their quality and professionalism.  The entire process prior to our event was seamless with great communication and documentation from Shawnta.  Day of the event, Jason and Tiffany arrived on time and because our party was mainly on the roof deck, heavy hand-passing was needed.  Jason didn't miss a beat with his impeccable timing, serving up his delectable Beef Sliders, Lamb Lollipops, Strawberry Seduction Salad, Braised Enchilada Style Chicken Tacos and Parmesan Truffle Fries.  Our guest raved over the food and friendly service - they knocked it out of the park, truly amazing!  Thank you so much guys, definitely recommending you to my friends and business associates and you're on my list for future events!

We had Curiocity cater our wedding just under a week ago and it was OUTSTANDING! First and foremost, the food is incredible. Diverse but cohesive, delicious but not heavy, adventurous but comforting. But Curiocity was even more than their amazing food. Their customer service, accommodating "can-do" attitude and attention and care allocated to the client is nothing short of exceptional. I did most of my correspondence with Shawnta while planning my wedding and she went above and beyond to stick to my budget while also accommodating some extra requests on behalf of some of my guests. Overall, the food was exceptional and so is the business overall. They're absolutely the best and I will recommend them again and again! More...

Wow, Wow, WOW!  Jason and his team had been recommended to me as an option for our 10th wedding anniversary party, and once we went to one of his tastings, my husband & I were hooked on the presentation and the quality of simple food served.   Then during the party, our guests were equally impressed with the quality of the food and the pleasant staff who served everything on trays.  From the sliders to the tacos to the strawberry seduction salad to the truffle fries-- and then when people had the amazing ahi wonton dish-- well, to say the least, our party was a HIT!  And when it came to the clean-up, Jason and his staff were on it.  Don't know when we will throw another party of that size, but will recommend Jason and his gang again and again-- and hope to hire him for an even bigger party when the time arrives.

Well holy cow, hands down the best sliders I've ever had. I'll actually stalk their Facebook page when I get the craving, something about the sauce and pickles. And yes, the truffle fries are the real deal, crisp to the last bite. Jason is incredible to work with, I had him come to a parking lot off the beach to feed me and my friends for my birthday on July 4th weekend. And he somehow figured out a generator to blend milkshakes to go with our food. Jason, you are my chef for life! More...

When I first starting planning our destination wedding, I had a vision, an idea of the wedding I wanted. I wanted a very specific food truck which would help set the tone for the "outdoorsy/backyard BBQ" style wedding I was going for. Curiocity helped my vision come to fruition. We worked with Shawnta from day one (and even brought her on as our coordinator) and they were absolutely great. Curiocity worked with us to get the price within our budget but still accommodated everything we wanted: apps, water station, coffee station, cheeseburgers and one of the best orders of french fries I've ever had- and don't get me started on their Strawberry salad! We did service from the truck and it was so much fun. Our guests loved it! We received so many compliments on how good the food was. Our guests even went as far as taking selfies with their favorite cheese! Curiocity was everything I wanted. Not only did Jason come and congratulate us before the truck took off but Curiocity even surprised us with the appetizer we really wanted (but had to cut due to costs). We had no idea until the day of- a fantastic surprise! They are professional, delicious and I would 100% recommend them. When we go back to San Diego to visit, we will definitely look them up to see if we can stop by for lunch. Thank you Curocity Catering for making our wedding so wonderful!! More...

We had Curiocity cater our wedding just under a week ago and it was OUTSTANDING! First and foremost, the food is incredible. Diverse but cohesive, delicious but not heavy, adventurous but comforting. But Curiocity was even more than their amazing food. Their customer service, accommodating "can-do" attitude and attention and care allocated to the client is nothing short of exceptional. I did most of my correspondence with Shawnta while planning  my wedding and she went above and beyond to stick to my budget while also accommodating some extra requests on behalf of some of my guests. The food was exceptional and so is the business overall. They're absolutely the best and I will recommend them again and again! More...

Hired Curiocity Catering for a graduation party for my niece.  I was hosting the party but do not live in San Diego.  Found them on Yelp and decided to give them a try.  It was super easy because they showed up with their food truck, served my 60 plus guests and left without any mess.  The food was amazing.  They served sliders, truffle fries and a strawberry spinach salad.  All ingredients were fresh, house made and over the top tasty.  They stayed and served until all my guests were full and couldn't eat any more.  I highly recommend them and would use them again.

I feel like my fiance and I were really lucky to find curiosity catering to cater our wedding. We went to a tasting and really liked the vibe and especially the food.  We didn't want typical wedding food. we wanted something more like comfort food with a few healthy options and Curiocity Catering delivered. Thanks again Curiocity! More...

I'm new to San Diego via upstate NY.  There are hot trucks but nothing compares to Curiosity food items/menu.  The food is phenomenal  but  the beef slider and Parmesan truffle fries make my mouth water, and dream about in my sleep lol. They support local farms and farmers in addition to using sustainable and organic ingredients.  The owner and staff members make you feel like family.  They are friendly, personable and professional.  If I'm ever considering any type of event requiring food I would without a doubt recruit the fabulous Curiosity Catering team to feed my guests.

Curiocity did an amazing job catering my wedding and exceeded my expectation!!!! The presentation of the cheese plate and strawberry salad to start set the tone. They proceeded to bring out the juiciest burgers that are to die for. Jason (owner) is attentive, professional, and an all around good guy. If you need a caterer I highly recommend Curiocity...

My Birthday Party was a wonderful success thanks to Jason and his crew at Curiocity Catering. We were able to choose the foods (absolutely loved the Lamb Lollipops) we wanted at a "tasting" Curiocity Catering invited us to. The food that came the day of our party was the same quality if not better than the tasting! They fed 100 of us hungry eater in 30 minutes.  Best caterer. Highly recommend. More...

This review is long overdue!  My husband and I got married on 09/17/16 at Milagro Farms Winery and Curiocity Catering catered our wedding.  Let me tell you, they were a hit!  We had so many of our guests rave about the food, especially the sliders.  Our family is used to corden bleu or just the general wedding food, so having a food truck was awesome!  People went back for seconds, people posed with the food in the photo booth, and overall our guests were happy!  Prior to the wedding, we worked with Shawnta to discuss what we wanted and schedule a tasting.  She was awesome to work with and super helpful.  We had some last minute changes to our guest count which the company was able to accommodate.  Shawnta also insured that the were some vegetarian sliders available to a few of our guests.  I would highly recommend Curiocity Catering to anyone!  The food is delicious and the staff is awesome!

Love this catering company! When my girlfriend broke the news to me that she was throwing a surprise birthday party, I was worried.  How, who, what, etc.  Turns out the party was really nice.  48 people enjoyed a live band and the delicious food from Curiocity Catering. Loved the sliders, I couldn't get enough and the truffle fries were worth the extra pound.  Highly recommend Curiocity Catering for any party or event. More...

We used Curiocity Catering for our rustic, outdoor wedding in Solana Beach in August 2016. We were thrilled with how affordable and transparent their costs were compared to another food truck we looked at. Shawnta was fantastic to work with--she talks a mile a minute but she listens too! We had a tight budget and wanted to do a lot of DIY anyway, and she was happy to help us work through the details of what we did and didn't need. She provided revised contracts as needed, with all costs, services, and timelines clearly spelled out.We were blown away by the food at our tasting, even my father, who has lost some of his sense of taste. Jason (the chef/owner) was friendly and attentive, and Shawnta fielded all the off-the-wall questions from my trouble-making father-in-law with charm and good humor. We finalized the menu: mini chicken tacos and our self-created cheese boards for appetizers, then strawberry salad, beef sliders (and a handful of veggie versions for our vegetarian guests), mushroom risotto, and parmesan truffle fries. Shawnta helped us make sure that the menu would accommodate our few guests with dietary restrictions (vegan, gluten-free, allergies). We used Curiocity's eco-friendly plates and cutlery and added a non-alcoholic beverage station and coffee/tea service. Our reception setting wasn't conducive to having guests walk up to the truck, so we had banquet-style service, with servers running the food up to a buffet table. The food was all cooked perfectly and served fresh. We also decided to hire Shawnta as a Day-of Coordinator. She met with us ahead of time at the venue for a walk-through and to make sure she understood everything we wanted. On the day, she helped us and our friends set up decorations and table settings, wrap up our cheese boards, uncork wine bottles and put beer on ice, and later, she laid out our dessert table. We had some specific visions for the day, and from early on, we were confident that we could trust Shawnta to carry out our unique event. She took great care of us and made everything run so smoothly! Lots of nice touches like bringing us water during the photo session and setting aside a box of dessert selections to make sure we'd get some of each. Then she (and several of our guests) stayed to help clean up all the trash and decorations so we could be out by our 10 pm deadline.And, of course, our guests RAVED about the food! Everyone was well-fed, those who wanted were able to get seconds, and we heard nothing but enthusiastic compliments for weeks after. Curiocity was the perfect complement to our casual, festive style. Our wedding day was absolutely perfect, and Shawnta and the Curiocity crew were a huge part of that! More...

We had Curiocity cater our wedding last month and it was everything I could have imagined! As a passionate foodie this was the perfect blend of healthy, vibrant, innovative cuisine prepared with passion. Jason helped us design a menu that our guests were completely wowed with! One of my favourites, the parmesan truffle fries were a huge hit. In addition to a beautiful dinner we had a gorgeous cheese board and a few late night offerings. All you brides out there looking for the perfect food experience for your big day...Curiocity Catering will not disappoint!! More...

Jason and the rest of curiosity catering are amazing. From the beginning to the end, we were incredibly impressed. My father is in the catering business and needless to say, my expectations were very high! He met them and exceeded them with shining stars! If I had a dollar for every time someone at the wedding told me it was the best burger they have ever had, I would have my student loans paid off. Ok, and the Ahi, I will have that for my last meal, it is AMAZING! The mushroom risotto was hot, fresh, so aromatic, and hearty. He works around your budget to determine what will be the best fit for your party. He even did my bar tending services. I am so thankful for the whole Curiocity staff, thank you thank you thank you! Can we come crash a tasting sometime?Thank you!Gia and Brian Schaake More...

Curiocity Catering came through at a late holiday time to cater our annual hospital unit party of about 60 at my house. Jason really took care of us from the start with responsiveness. His team was professional from start to finish and created the perfect outdoor ambience to make our guests enjoy a superb menu. I got so many compliments on the food and venue throughout the evening. As a host, I could not have asked for a better plug and play night. Their service pushing new trays out to our guests through the event was excellent. Best of all, they left almost no footprint when they left for us to clean up. Thanks for such a smooth event! More...

We were looking for a fun alternative to a formal sit-down dinner at our outdoor wedding this past October. We wanted something different, something hip, and DELICIOUS!

We had the pleasure of trying Curiocity Catering at a friend's wedding the following year and the food was DELICIOUS! Everything is so flavorful! It was nice to see that even though a year had past since the last time we had the food, the value and flavor did not!

When I contacted Jason I told him our budget and he worked with us to make sure we got everything we wanted and stayed within our budget. Exceptional customer service!!! He made us feel comfortable and important throughout the whole process!

His team was incredible on our wedding day - very professional and friendly to all our guests! It was a good experience for everyone! They even offered seconds and thirds for those that were still hungry and wanting more!!

We wish you guys the best and look forward to stopping at your truck when around town to get our fix!! CHEERS!

We were lucky to have so many amazing vendors help us out to make our wedding as fantastic as it was. CurioCity was crucial to that effort. The menu was spot on, the truck was clean and attractive, they fed 150 guests no problem, and the biodegradable dishes were perfect. They also stepped up at the last minute to help us with appetizers and bartenders for our cocktail hour. Yummy! More...

I have to be honest.  My hubby and I knew right away that Curiocity Catering was just what we were looking for to cater our wedding.  We wanted a menu with variety and that would also be able to cater to the needs of some picky eaters.  The food was fantastic and we are both craving the Parmesan fries and beef sliders as I type this.  The staff was very friendly and made sure that we had enough food during cocktail hour as well as after dinner.  If you want killer food and great service call these guys.  Thank you Curiocity Catering!

Everyone raved about the sliders and fries and the Mac and cheese were a hit as well. People were able to get seconds and everyone's food was fresh off the grill. I can't imagine having our wedding food any different and would absolutely recommend this company to anyone who wants to wow their guests. Thank you Shawnta for working with me and your patience as I constantly changed my guest count and menu options. You made the process stress free and on my wedding day everyone was thrilled to eat burgers and fries. More...

Shawnta was amazing to work with from the start and really helped us pin down all the details to make not only the food service but other aspects of our wedding just what we wanted. In addition to the food truck, we hired 2 bartenders to work the open bar. Everyone was so friendly and professional!

She was extremely friendly, provided many options and advice and was extremely responsive. My husband and I loved the food as well as our guests. We had the strawberry salad, sliders and truffle fries. My husband is not a foodie at all but was so pleased with the tasting that we had to go with them! The tacos were also excellent! Thanks Curiocity for a great event! More...

We contracted with Curiousity for the 2nd time to cater another event at our home!  They actually did TWO dinners for us.  First night was their food truck specials... chicken enchilada tacos, sliders, truffle fries, risotto, etc.  Guests (30) were served from their cool truck and they LOVED it!  The second night we were celebrating our 10th wedding anniversary and they came up with an incredible Italian dinner for 50 friends & family on our patio.  Tray passed bruschetta appetizer...plated dinner was fresh, tossed salad, spicy meatball entree with homemade marinara sauce and roasted Italian veggies.  Jason worked with my requests down to every detail!  Assorted Italian cookies were tray passed and complimented our lemon/raspberry naked cake and berry chocolate cups.  YUM!  Rave guest reviews.  As always, Jason and his crew were efficient, friendly and constantly insuring we were pleased at every step.  Even a traffic glitch was handled with great communication and care. They kept in phone contact and prepped on the freeway enroute to make sure they'd be ready to serve as soon as they got here!  Once again, they did not disappoint and we'll be calling them first for any future opportunity to work with them again.

Curiocity Catering provided dinner for me, my wife and 120 guests at our wedding back in June.  They were phenomenal.  For cocktail hour after the ceremony, we had the artisan cheese plate and the braised enchilada style chicken tacos.  Our guests raved about them.  For dinner we started with the strawberry salad and then had the beef sliders with parmesan truffle fries.  Once again, our guests raved.  They were professional, showed up on time and were very easy to work with.  Also, we opted to use their dinner wear which made our lives much easier logistically.  We would absolutely recommend them to cater a wedding or any other event that needs great food.  Thanks again to Jason and the rest of the crew!Kyle & Alex More...

Jason and his team at Curiosity Catering recently catered our wedding at Quail Haven Farm in Vista, CA on May 7 and we could not have been more pleased with the overall experience. The whole planning process from choosing which items we wanted on our menu, to working with our budget, and overall communication with their team was so smooth. Their team was punctual, very friendly to our guests and did not disappoint. Our guests repeatedly told us how much they enjoyed the food. Jason even went around and offered seconds to which our guests happily accepted. He even made sure me and my groom ate plenty ;-) Having a food truck to compliment the vibe of our wedding and of course good food, other than the dry fish/steak you normally receive at most weddings, was our goal and I'd say Curiosity definitely exceeded that.

Working with Curiocity was a breath of fresh air! They were punctual, professional, and extremely accommodating.

Shawnta, Jason, and Yazzy worked closely with us to ensure that the menu was suitable to our needs and that the service process was well organized. We were extremely happy to find out that they were able to provide an entire Gluten Free menu! Jason and Yazzy were personable and down to earth which allowed us and the guests to feel comfortable with asking questions. The food was absolutely superb! ** Be sure to ask about the Sliders, Jidori Chicken Tacos, and the Risotto!** I am so happy that we were able to work together on this event and I'm looking forward to many more in the future.

This review is quite a bit overdue - Curocity Catering provided the food service and a bartender at our wedding in March and did an amazing job!  Shawnta was willing to work with my wife and I on a menu that would fit within our budget and dealt with constant (and sometimes late-night) emails regarding changes, dietary needs of certain family, and all other craziness associated with wedding planning.  She was very responsive with replies and was always able to provide an accommodation.  In terms of the actual wedding day, Curiocity Catering did an amazing job and we couldn't have been happier!  The food was really delicious (we have been to their truck outside of our wedding we liked it so much) and received lots of compliments from our guests.  The truck itself was a fun idea opposed to more traditional buffet-style catering and was not excessively loud or noisy (a concern based on their arrival around the start of the ceremony).  They helped with clean up and also made a point to make sure the bride and groom had food and were satisfied.  We were very happy with their catering services and would definitely recommend them to others - thanks!!

We used Curiocity Catering for our daughter's wedding  in February.  A huge thank you to Jason and his crew in the truck for preparing DELICIOUS food for this extremely special event.  We continue to get feedback from guests who rave about the food that night.  We decided on an appetizer platter,  tray-passed fish tacos,  risotto, sliders, truffle fries, and salad for 110 guests.  It was ALL--fresh, presented beautifully and abundant.  A huge thank you to Shawnta at Curiocity.    She is an absolute delight to work with and made the decision making and paperwork easy.   On the evening of the wedding,  Shawnta showed up to check on how everything was going and jumped behind the bar to facilitate service.  We highly recommend Curiocity Catering  and look forward to working with them again.  THANK YOU to the entire team for being such an important part of a memorable occasion.

My husband and I contacted Curiocity Catering because of the amazing reviews and the great food. We really wanted our guests to have the experience of ordering directly from the food truck, which was a really fun and unexpected element for many of our out of town guests. Now, I work in the wedding industry, and have high expectations, and am probably not the easiest bride Jason's ever worked with. That said, he worked with me on customizing several options, and adding a few things that weren't in their normal repertoire. We had guests with a multitude of food issues: gluten free, gluten and lactose free, nut allergies, gluten free and vegan, vegetarian with paprika and squash allergies...I mean, it's a lot. Jason took all my food concerns in stride, and made sure that every guest had something to eat. And not just 'something,' something good. We were told that the fries were the best some people had ever had, and I would happily eat those jdori chicken tacos any day. This is not standard wedding food. We were concerned about people being fed in a timely manner, but this really wasn't an issue. Our coordinator advised us to excuse our guests table by table to cut down on long lines and a free for all, and this worked really well. Everyone seemed happy and well-fed. We also used Curiocity for our bar service. They handled our specialty cocktail requests without any problem, and did so efficiently enough that there never was a long wait. And, the drinks were gooood. Clean up was taken care of, primarily, by the Curiocity staff, and I never noticed any mess. I would happily recommend Curiocity for your event! More...

This is a very belated but much deserved review of Curiocity Catering who catered our wedding 1.5 years ago at the Spanish Village Art Center in Balboa Park. My husband is a chef so he held high standards when it came to the food for our wedding. We went to some tastings for some very fancy wedding planning companies and caterers and felt pretty disappointed, until we tried Curiocity. At the time having a truck cater was just a thought. And we weren't sure how it would work for our 200+ outdoor wedding. But Curiocity was able to provide a full service dinner with a brilliantly designed menu. All of our guests were so surprised and impressed by how good the food was - much better than the food at all the fancy hotel weddings we went to that year. Great communication, great attitude, great food, a great choice! More...

Shawnta is so organized and friendly. She responses quickly and always answers all of my questions. We hired bar tenders and servers and they were all very fun and friendly. My husband and I are a little bit of food snobs so the food was our most important part of the reception. Everyone loved the food! It was classy but casual and everyone got to try over 5 different things on their menu. Thank you so much Curiocity! More...

These guys are awesome!!! They catered our wedding a few months ago and did such a great job--everybody loved the food.  Best part about this food truck is that they are so easy to work with, and Shawnta is just so organized and helpful.  We tried out a sampling of all the food options at one of their brewery stops, and then chose what we wanted.  Just a few simple steps after that and you're all set!!  Very very affordable compared to pretty much any other food options you will look at for your wedding or event.  Going with Curiocity saved me sooooo much headache. You don't have to think about dinnerware, hot plates, clean up or any of that stuff.  They take care of everything.  The food is delicious and they have a great mix of nice healthy salads and delicious burgers and fries (among other things!).  Couldn't have asked for more! Thanks guys! More...

I can't wait till they cater one of our events again!  Everyone should go and try their food truck - you won't regret it! More...

This review is loooong overdue. Curiosity catered our wedding in May of 2013. The first caterer  we talked to quoted us almost $10,000 to do a food truck catering for about 100 people. We were shocked. My husband found Curiocity by eating at their food truck. We went for a tasting and loved it. Seriously, I have never had a better salas.They quoted us a completely reasonable price for the service and we went with them.Not only did they drive the truck out to the middle of nowhere in the hills east of Escondido, but they DELIVERED on everything: timing, presentation, volume, and flavor. My mom was so angry with me for not having a sit down dinner but after the reception she was so happy with how the catering turned out. We has a fruit and cheese plate. Then server passed salad and appetizers. Then they counted to pass are more substantial food like burgers. We had guests after the reception admit that they would hide near the food truck to intercept the waiters when they first left with new food so they could get seconds and thirds. In the end there was more than enough food for everyone and our guests continue to remark on how good the food was, two years after our wedding. You wouldn't think people would be complimentary about getting tacos and burgers at a wedding but when they are really good (like at our wedding) they are better than some dry piece of filet mignon any day. Curiocity made food truck food fun but beautiful and upscale enough to fit in perfect for our reception. I would recommend them to cater any event. In fact, I think I may hire them to cater our daughters first birthday. More...

Curiocity Catering were at Thorn Street Brewery on Friday night. I was only after a snack, so had the parmesan truffle fries - and they were great! Shared them with some friends who also agreed they were good - wish I hadn't shared them now, and had kept them to myself! More...

We used the food truck to cater our rehearsal dinner for 65 people on the 10th floor of our apartment building.  The food was great and the servers were personable and easy to work with. Shawnta was very efficient setting up all of the arrangements and was always quick to answer all emails.  My only suggestion would be that they consider providing at least one more server. Our guests stood in line to get their food for way too long. Finally one of the groomsmen jumped in and served the salad to the guests More...

My husband and I were married in St.John in February. We wanted to celebrate with all of our friends and family so we decided to throw a big party in September. After hunting around different catering companies and options - we settled on Curiocity Catering. We heard from Curiocity very shortly after we contacted them, which was a pleasant surprise compared to all of the other places we reached out to. I am a big planner, so working with someone who was on top of the details and responses, was very important to me. Shawnta was very knowledgable, quick to respond to emails, quick to give us quotes for what we wanted. We went to Thorn Street Brewery for the tasting - which provided a fun atmosphere - the food was DELICIOUS and we were hooked!!! We wanted something more unique and not so 'buffet style, been sitting in chafing dishes' typical wedding grub. This food was the perfect find! We had the party in our backyard, the truck was able to park in our driveway and bring in food in batches, super fresh. Jason and his staff who helped were friendly and the food was to die for. We ordered two tray passed appetizers - chicken tandoori tacos and bruschetta - both delicious! Then we got the wild mushroom risotto, brandt beer sliders and strawberry seduction salad. They even offered to throw together vegetarian options for the guests who needed it! Our guests were raving about the food during the party, and for weeks after. It made me so happy to hear everyone was so impressed. All in all a wonderful experience and very reasonably priced - especially with the unique, high quality food and service that they provide. I would HIGHLY recommend using Curiosity catering for anything from a wedding, to a backyard party - or any other event! Thank you Shawnta and team for making it such a wonderful experience overall and adding to our special day. More...

I used Curiosity Catering for my husband and I's 50th birthday celebration and I'm so glad I did! Jason worked with me on the menu over the phone and had fantastic ideas from the start.  The food was amazing. Local, fresh, and different. I wanted the farthest from banquet food as possible and he delivered -- from his truck! The sushi appetizer was a huge hit with our guest and it couldn't have tasted more fresh.  The mini tandoori chicken tacos were another favorite of the evening. I was hesitant to go with Jason's recommendation of all-tray service for the evening, but what a hit it was and so much fun.  I also was hoping for a unique cake for us and Jason found just the right baker and got it done! He handled everything from rentals to bar service without me having to lift a finger. Even though my guest thought I had it all together; I really didn't, it was all Jason. Now my friends are calling him to book their holiday parties--he's that good! More...

We had Curiocity Catering cater our wedding last weekend and it was fantastic.  The food was delicious and our guest couldn't stop talking about how delicious the food was.  The Ahi was everyone's favorite.  I had my doubts that serving 80 people, tray passing every item, would work.  Jason and his crew did not skip a beat.  There was plenty of great food.  They were also wonderful at accommodating our guests with special dietary needs.  We had zero complaints.  Since we didn't eat much, they packed up a few items that we ate in our room later.  They are very thoughtful.  We did not have to worry about the food at all on our special day.  Jason, please thank your wonderful staff for us again.  I made a fabulous choice in choosing Curiosity Catering.

We were looking for a food truck in lieu of the sit-down/buffet dinner that you always see at weddings. We visited Curiocity's truck one night while in North Park and we knew immediately that this was our pick. The food was amazing!We contacted Jason and he worked with us on our budget. We had many questions along the way in the months leading up to the wedding and he was quick to respond and so helpful.The day of the wedding, his team far exceeded our expectations. We received so many compliments from our guests that they were friendly and of course how amazing the food was. We were honestly worried about whether we ordered enough food, but everyone was totally satisfied and enjoyed the variety of food. We went with the artisan cheese plate to start, the jidori chicken tacos and the fish tacos as apps, the strawberry salad, beef sliders, veggie sliders (for the vegetarian option), and of course parmesan truffle fries. I had one friend who commented on how they worked with him when he asked that his burgers be made plain with nothing on them.At the end of the night, Jason had noticed that someone in the wedding party wasn't feeling well so he didn't eat much. He wrapped up some extra food for him to bring home. Such a nice gesture. :)We couldn't be happier that we chose Curiocity. We will definitely be using them again in the future! More...

In planning my daughters wedding, my daughter mentioned how cool it would be to have a food truck. I was absolutely stunned. I had many preconceived ideas about food trucks which were totally off base. We began our search for a food truck that would serve wedding worthy food to all of our guests. If my daughter wanted a food truck, then I wanted gourmet food coming out of the food truck. We met with Shawnta for a tasting at a San Diego Brewery. She was incredibly sweet and served us with delicious sliders and truffle fries. We made our decision from our very first bite. Who knew there were gourmet chefs in the food truck? The food was equally delicious at the wedding and all of our guests were served with a hot plate of food. What more could we have asked for?Shawnta was so helpful on our initial meeting so I asked if she could help at the wedding. She was hired to be my "day off" wedding coordinator. I didn't want to miss a moment of my only daughter's special day. Shawnta is incredibly organized, kind and efficient. She assured me that everything would go according to plan and on schedule.  She was right! It was perfect  and I enjoyed every minute of the special moment WITHOUT stress. Thank you, Shawnta!

The strawberry salad, the slider options , truffle fries were delicious!

I look forward to working with their team for our future events! Thanks Curiocity Catering! More...

Curiosity catered our destination wedding reception in Oceanside, CA. My husband and I can't thank Shawnta and the others at Curiosity enough for the amazing experience. The bottom line: They were AMAZING to work with, the food was AMAZING, and their set up and running of the event exceeded our expectations. We are incredibly thankful for the care they took in catering our wedding. Great pricing, especially for the quality of the food and experience!More detail:Planning & Pricing:The planning process with Shawnta was refreshingly stress fee. And so was the wedding reception. As soon as we started working with her (and after reading the reviews), we knew this was the caterer to go with. During the wedding planning, I found other caterers in the area to be cumbersome/stressful to work with - they were not flexible, and one caterer added fees they "forgot to tell me about" several times. I was so relieved to find Curiosity Catering - the best decision we made vendor-wise during the wedding planning.The Food:The food was AMAZING and exceeded our expectations, even with all of the glowing reviews. Our family and friends had a great time and we recieved tons of compliments on the food. Our menu included the sliders, halibut tacos, parmesan cheese fries, and the salad with strawberries, onions, and goat cheese. They even added a generous bowl of delicious guacamole for guests to add to the halibut tacos. Exceptional quality. They provided second servings to everyone who asked, and they even sent food home with my family. The eco plates they provided were lovely, of great quality, and made for easy clean up/ recycle. During the planning I was on the fence about using ceramic dinner plates or the eco plates they provide. I'm glad we went with the eco plates! The Set-Up:Due to another vendor's mistake, Shawnta did not get the set up instructions (table placement, place setting design, etc). Shawnta designed the set up of our event on the fly and we are so glad that she did - her set up was much better than what we had planned - a nice surprise when we arrived! We can't thank her enough for the care she took in setting up and running our event, and for fixing another vendor's mistake. Our families and friends live all over the country, and it was a rare time to all be together. Thank you to Shawnta and the others at Curiosity for going above and beyond to make it such a lovely experience for us and our loved ones! More...

Although my fiancé and I did not ultimately book with Curiocity to cater our wedding, Shawnta was absolutely WONDERFUL to work with! She was very patient with us as we navigated through the horrors of wedding planning and was always prompt to reply to my emails. The tasting with Curiocity was one of the best we had. My fiancé is not a big fan of salads but he fell in love with their strawberry seduction salad. It tasted refreshing and we were both amazed that the goat cheese in the salad did not overpower the flavor of the strawberries. We also tried the braised enchilada chicken tacos, brandt beef sliders, and the parmesan truffle fries which were all delicious. But hands down, the mushroom risotto was both our favorites. It was so flavorful that the taste of it will be forever ingrained on my tongue. We also liked that Shawnta gave us some space and privacy while we tasted the food and never once, did I felt pressured to book with Curiocity asap. Overall, it was a pleasant and enjoyable experience and I will definitely recommend and consider Curiocity Catering for other occasions especially when my 30th birthday rolls around. More...

I used Curiosity Catering for my wedding in November for about 180 people. The tasting was fun and choosing them was a slam dunk. The food was tasty and Jason was easy to work with, even helping with some challenging diet requirements for a few of my guests. Easy peasy planning. The day of, his staff was great, except for one gal who gave the woman (my friend) who was helping me at the reception site some attitude. Jason was all smiles and smoothed it over with his staff, no arguments. Minus one star, as the food was late coming out which made things awkward, but everyone eventually ate and everyone liked their meal. Jason's staff helped with the bar, the food, the cake and coffee service, and clean up, and I appreciate his good nature, the yummy food, and the sustainable aspects of Curiosity Catering. I would book them again, maybe for a smaller group of people. More...

We have had Jason and his team out to cater our weekly office meeting twice now and both times my team of 50 people has been running back to the truck begging for more, which he was fully prepared for! He is great at coming up with a new and delicious menu and the food is as fresh and delicious as it gets. I have appreciated the local and farm fresh food as well as the great attitude of the team and timeliness in preparing our food. These guys won't disappoint! Try both the sliders and the tacos. I wish I could eat their food more often! More...

********** My only regret is that I am unable to post 10 stars because Jason and his crew are certainly worth all ten!I found Curiocity on Yelp and arranged a tasting which did not disappoint!!! I was a bit nervous about having a food truck cater for my party but the Yelp reviews and the tasting made my decision easy!They catered my daughter's 40th BD party, not a large group, only 30 of us gathered in an intimate setting to celebrate a milestone in her life and Curiocity blew it out of the park!The food, OMG!! Ahi, lamb lollipops, cheeses, salad, tacos, sliders and fries ... all perfect! The service was as impeccable as the food was delicious, everything was over the top!I loved having the food passed on trays, delivered promptly, with everything fresh, hot and yummy. I could not have asked for better timing on their service!Absolutely the best! The staff was awesome, very friendly and professional! Thank you all for making this party a very successful event! I will certainly use again. More...

They provided excellent food, amazing service,  bartenders and servers. Even with 150 guests the line went quickly and the food was hot and flavorful. They even took the time to serve a special meal for the guten sensitive.  Thank you Curiocity for helping my daughter to have the wedding of her dreams. More...

Jason and Shawnta are OUTSTANDING to work with to set up a catering event! We had the Curiocity Catering Cool Black Food Truck at our house for a party with about 25 guests. The food was amazing! Guests are still reminding me of the parmesan  truffle fries! The dinner was months ago! Guests that don't normally have fries couldn't stop from having a second helping! The food was so fresh, unique and tasty, better then any restaurant we could have selected as a venue. Having the food truck also made it easy to host and clean up! What a blast! We hope that this will turn into an annual event at our home with Curiocity being the caterer! We highly recommend! More...

Curiocity catered our rehearsal dinner at the end of January, and it was awesome. What made it awesome? First, Shawnta is, hands down, the most on-top-of-it person we met during the entire wedding planning process. Stunningly prompt replies, always knew what was going on, etc etc. Zero stress working with her.Second, they were incredibly accommodating as we changed dates, menus, had special requests, etc etc. Again, no stress, no hassle, lots of positive vibes.Third, they knew what was up when they got to our venue, suggested a better set-up for serving than we had originally planned (it worked way better), served an awesome meal, with no hassle whatsoever.Fourth, did I mention that the meal was awesome? All the guests raved about the food. Just plain great.So, in summary: fantastic people who are fantastic to work with who serve fantastic food. Four thumbs up. More...

Could not have made a better choice with Curiocity catering for wedding food! Could not have been more blessed to work with Shawnta during the process! First Food:Not exactly what I thought of as "wedding food," but trust me, people loved it! And so did I. Especially because the reception wasn't a sit down style, Curiocity Catering hit it out of the park! 1. Taste is 10 out of 102. Customer service 10 out of 103. Style is 10 out of 10Shawnta:This lady is pretty much the best thing about Curiocity Catering! She is super helpful, funny, and very assertive. She endured many annoying e-mails and phone calls to help coordinate the tasting, wedding reception, etc. She was more than helpful seeming to go out of her way to make sure everything was taken care of. She made my bride and I feel like she was there at every step of the way. Shawnta is a generally happy and awesome person to work with. She's the kind of person you wished worked at every place you ever need customer service. A++ to Shawnta and the team for all the hard work and effort! More...

Hiring curiocity catering was the best decision we could have made for our wedding!

Shawnta is a PLEASURE to work with. She was always super responsive from my first inquiry, very easy to contact and work with. She promptly gave me some baseline prices, answered all my questions about logistics and helped me set up a tasting.

The tasting was PHENOMENAL. They make the absolute best food. The Pink Lady Salad is to die for. The chicken tacos are delicious. Their sliders are the best I've ever had, and their truffle parmesan fries are just incredible - no ketchup needed.

After the testing booking them was a given. The prices quoted were incredibly reasonable, and even included these awesome disposable wooden plates and utensils that fit our rustic wedding perfectly! We even added an Ahi appetizer sight unseen to the list.

The day of the wedding they did not disappoint. They arrived and parked at our venue and got to work, by the end of the ceremony they were ready with appetizers. Their servers were friendly and fast - ensuring everyone got to try the appetizers. It was all as good as I remembered from the tasting. Then they quickly served all 65 people at the wedding. Cleaned up and they were gone - not a trace, no disaster in the kitchen! I don't know why anyone would hire a normal caterer when they could hire an awesome food truck like Curiocity!

Shawnta was such a pleasure to have at the wedding, she made our day even brighter. She even kept us on task and reminded me when it was time to serve dinner and cut the cake. And they had plenty of food! Shawnta had promised us she never left anyone hungry at a wedding and she didn't lie - we were all STUFFED.

Our guests RAVED about the food, and still are. If you want to eat well at your wedding and ensure that people remember your wedding because of the food look no further - just book Curiocity Catering!

We used them for a company party a couple of months ago, We had some technical difficulties at the Powerhouse Park in Del Mar (couldn't find a working plug for the equipment), so there were some glitches that were definitely not Curiocity's fault. (Powerhouse park gets 3 stars for location and no stars for the crabby ladies who manage it. Or working power outlets.) Anyway, Jason and his team were SO friendly and wonderful. They even helped us set up/tear down tables, and bag up the garbage when we realized we needed to take it all home with us. Service above and beyond all expectations. The fish and chicken tacos we selected for our menu were not a big hit among our guests, though. But the sliders and truffle fries were wonderful. Oh - and that yummmmy spinach salad. Gotta have that. More...

Everything is so flavorful! It was nice to see that even though a year had past since the last time we had the food, the value and flavor did not!When I contacted Jason I told him our budget and he worked with us to make sure we got everything we wanted and stayed within our budget. Exceptional customer service!!! He made us feel comfortable and important throughout the whole process!His team was incredible on our wedding day - very professional and friendly to all our guests! It was a good experience for everyone! They even offered seconds and thirds for those that were still hungry and wanting more!! We wish you guys the best and look forward to stopping at your truck when around town to get our fix!! CHEERS! More...

I actually had worked along side Curiocity Catering at a wedding we photographed and I was very impressed with their service and I loved that it was a food truck.. and I loved their food.  So, when it came time to plan my own event in October 2014 and I started comparing caterers in San Diego and I decided to reach out to Curiocity.  I spoke to Jason right away and he provided me a very competitive and affordable quote and helped me with menu decisions. We had limitations for no open flame inside the venue and not to mention we were on the 26th floor of a downtown highrise but this didn't slow them down at all.  Jason and his staff were all smiles and serving the yummy bites to all the guests tray after tray.   I mean literally, every guest wouldn't stop going on and on about the food!  I highly recommend Curiocity Catering, they add a little current culture with their food truck but most of all, they make and serve delicious food with great customer service!

This food truck recently started coming to the building where I work. The first time I tried this place, I ordered the brandt-beef burger and parmesan-truffle fries. The burger was one of the tastiest burgers I've had off a food truck. There was something about the sauce in it that made each bite delicious. The fries were really good as well. I noticed that they sometimes put the fries in a cup and other times in a tray. I'd recommend asking them to put it in a tray since sometimes the fries are just overflowing out of the cup and you might lose some while walking back to eat. The second time I came, I tried the risotto. It was ok. The wait was pretty long after we ordered it, but it was good. Just not that great. I think the next time I'll order the burger again.This place is pretty good and I'd recommend trying the burger and fries. Maybe I'll try the jidori chicken tacos since those looked good too.

When I wanted to add items to the menu and increase the number of people to feed he was very accommodating. During the reception his crew were on time, organized, and just basically exceptional. All my other vendors raved about the service Curiocity provided.Now for the food....all my guests only had great things to say. The sliders were moist. Salad was delicious. Tacos were fantastic. Their cheese plate was beautifully presented.  The risotto tasted wonderful. But...the star of the night were the Parmesan truffle fries! Everybody loved them and couldn't stop talking about them! Thank you Curiocity! No words can express the gratitude we have for making our day very special. We are customers for life and look forward until our next meal together. More...

Jason and his staff catered our 100-person wedding. It was perfect and everyone loved the food. Our wedding was semi-formal / black tie optional, and they accomodated us perfectly. The guests especially loved that it was different than the usual fork-and-knife "chicken or beef" type food. Jason is also very flexible in getting staff and bartenders and doing whatever services you need (cleanup, water, etc). I'd recommend Curiocity for any style wedding. More...

First and foremost... the whole menu is AMAZING! My mouth is watering as I write this review. Curiocity catered our wedding and our guests are still talking about how delicious the food was. My husband and I love food trucks and are quite foodies, so this added a perfect personal touch to our wedding reception. We had an outdoor wedding, so it was the perfect mix of casual yet elegantly prepared food. We also loved that they use organic and sustainable ingredients that are sourced locally. For cocktail hour the staff tray passed ahi tuna and prepared a chef's charcuterie table. For dinner we had the brandt beef sliders, parmesan truffle fries, deadliest catch (seafood) risotto and the strawberry seduction salad. mmmmm MMH! Despite how busy a wedding reception can be, my husband and I made sure to actually sit down and enjoy every bite. I am so glad we did! Staff was very friendly, service was great, and cleanup was quick and efficient. Jason was incredibly friendly and flexible throughout the planning and day of. Pricing is awesome, and quite reasonable for the fantastic quality of the food. Keep in mind that they are quite busy, so they may take a bit to respond to emails and phone calls. (for all you type-As out there) However, I never had a concern about whether or not the service would be good. There was a slight time miscommunication at the reception, but it was quickly and discreetly resolved between their staff and our coordinator. Overall, we (and our guests) were thrilled with Curiocity Catering and would highly recommend to anyone! More...

In a nutshell, Above And WAY Beyond!! We used Curiocity for our wedding catering and they were absolutely fantastic! Jason gave us a tasting a couple of months before the wedding and we loved the food, he told us exactly how everything was going to work and they performed perfectly. We got married at the Japanese Friendship Garden in Balboa park and everything went so well. We had so many compliments on the food and it was such a unique way to get all of our guests very well fed! The main menu included chicken jidori tacos, beef sliders and strawberry salad, it was absolutely delicious and like I said our guests were so happy and well fed. Jason and his staff delivered beyond the call of duty, I would certainly recommend them for a wedding reception or any large event for that matter! tags: wedding catering / caterer, wedding reception More...

Jason and his team at Curiocity Catering are just awesome. We had them cater our wedding, and everyone LOVED the food. Our menu looked like this:PASSED APPS* Lamb Lolipops (that people couldn't resist)* Bruschetta (that was out of this world)SALAD* Pink Lady Apple Salad (with walnuts, blue cheese crumbles, and a yummy champagne vinaigrette) SIDE* Parmesan truffle fries (which they kept feeding my bridesmaids and I while we took photos - could not get enough)MAIN (Choice Of...)* Sliders* Chicken Tacos* Veggie DishEveryone LOVED the food, and loved going up to the truck to order (my husband's family is from Australia where the food truck scene hasn't really taken off yet). So it was a cool experience for everyone and the whole truck team was awesome. If you're looking for something fun and tasty for your next event go with these guys :) More...

Curiocity Catering recently catered our wedding and we are extremely satisfied with  the quality food and the fantastic service! Yazmine was so great to work with! She was very  flexible with our menu changes leading up to the wedding. She answered questions promptly and was polite and professional from the very beginning. We chose the Veggie Platter and Artisan Cheese Plate for cocktail hour, followed by the Pink Lady Salad, Sliders, Serious Mac n Cheese, and Parmesan Truffle Fries or dinner.  Everything was so delicious! Our guests were so impressed with the food, they are still talking about it! The entire Curiocuty Catering crew worked hard and did an amazing job. They even provide bar tender and cake cutting services. Their VerTerra disposable dinnerware was a huge plus! Makes for easy cleanup yet a stylish and sustainable dining experience! We could not be happier with our choice and will recommend Curiocity Catering to anyone needing a wedding or event caterer! Thank you Curiocity Catering!! More...

Not only is the food absolutely incredible, the owners are community conscious as well.  I am the founder of a nonprofit organization and Curiocity regularly donates food to assist us with serving the homeles and supports our volunteers when we restore the homes of disabled veteran homeowners.   Their company does far more for the community than provide great food so please eat, eat, eat up with Curiocity!!

Curiocity Catering is wonderful and they are a gem in the SD area!!  My Husband and I were recently married at the San Diego Botanic Gardens and we wanted to choose a caterer that mirrored our personalities-fun, eclectic, and simple food lovers, while also offering something very special to the guests.  Jason was very accommodating from day one by providing my friends and I with a wedding tasting at a local brewery in Mira Mesa and from the moment I tried the food,  I had no doubt in my mind that I wanted them to be apart of our wedding. Every aspect of their company from their team members to their food is excellent.  I told my husband that the only regret I have about our wedding was not having more sliders :) (haha because we were so busy having fun and talking with guests).  I wondered how a team of just a few people could execute fresh food while serving the amount of guests at my wedding;  well they went above and beyond and completely knocked it out of the park.  My guests absolutely loved the food and yes, as many other yelpers have also shared, sliders were definitely their favorite.Prior to my wedding people told me that no one really remembers the food however that doesn't apply to our wedding as Curiocity was an intricate part of our wedding and they truly made a lasting impression.  I highly recommend Curiocity for ANY event whether it be a work event, a graduation, a party or a wedding.

We had Curiocity Catering provide food for my daughters graduation party.  The food (sliders, fries, strawberry salad, and fish tacos) was total quality.  So many of my guests commented to me on how good the food tasted.  Not only was the food great but the service was impeccable.  Both Jason and his worker were attentive to our needs and provided the food in a timely matter.  They were very organized.  I highly recommend this catering company and look forward to using them in three years when my son graduates.

We recently had Curiocity Catering come and cater for our wedding, they were AMAZING! Not only were they totally professional from the beginning (meeting us at GreenFlash, letting us taste their menu & promptly responding to my silly bride-worried emails...:)) but at the wedding, they served all of our 150 guests in 40 mins! They worked with our budget and were just so nice to work with through the entire process.  At one point my mom had accidentally spilled her plate and she walked back over and told them, but only asked for a little plate (she didnt want to be wasteful!) and they handed her a full plate of food, no questions asked! When they were done, Jason came up to me and told me they were about to wrap things up and asked me how I thought things went/how it all tasted & thanked me for the opportunity and also said the same to my mom. I was and am super impressed with them! We will absolutely be following them & promoting them wherever they go. Thank you again for making our day SO incredible! More...

My husband and I were looking for something out of the box for our wedding reception on 4/4/14. Curiocity catering provided a great product with exceptional customer service. Originally Ashley was our contact, but Jason helped the day of the event and during the planning process. We did a tasting with Ashley during the summer in 2013. We had already done several tastings at this point with other catering companies and food trucks, but none compared to Curiocity. My husband and I were confident we had made a great decision on deciding to do one more tasting and booked Curiocity.  We were planning our wedding from Maryland and Jason made sure to return all of our calls and emails. We also needed a bartender for our reception and Jason was able to help us out with that as well. Each time we spoke he was very nice, easy going and quick to offer suggestions that might help our planning process.My grandmother was not a fan of food trucks. When I first told her we had hired a food truck to cater our wedding reception she was very unhappy. By the end of the reception she could not stop talking about how delightful and tasty the food was. She was also very impressed with the cleanliness, presentation, and quality of the food. Our menu consisted of the following:- Truffle Mushroom Risotto- Curiocity Burger- Parmesan Truffle Fries- Strawberry Salad with an amazing strawberry vinaigrette dressing.Everything on our menu was delicious and cooked to perfection. Overall we are overwhelmingly pleased with the food and level of professionalism provided to us on our wedding day.  Jason provided us with top notch service and it made our wedding day worry free. Thank you Curiocity Catering and staff. More...

Wedding Food - you either remember it because it is bad or you don't remember it, right?Not the case at all when using Curiocity Catering. Over the course of the last seven months since my husband and I have been married, each and every person we have run into since our wedding has commented and re-commented on how delicious, beautifully presented, and unique our "wedding food" was. The food has been commented on more than the venue, the music, the decor...you get the point.Our venue was Luce Loft, an open air, industrial loft space in the East Village district of San Diego right next to Petco Park. We had 120 guests and the space, while a good size, was not meant to host a sit down dinner party reception. We ran through our options and looked into food trucks to see how they could better accommodate and compliment the space. We reached out to a few and got in touch with Jason from Curiocity Catering. From the moment we spoke, he had complete confidence that he could give us the food we wanted, present it in a way that worked with the flow of our event, and hit at the price point that we were comfortable with. Mind you, my husband and I hosted a "black-tie optional" wedding reception, and our food was one of the classiest things about the event. The servers tray passed the main items in beautifully presented and eco-friendly bamboo flatware/plates and the salad and the cheese presentation were displayed on a bar top table off to one of the sides of our reception. During our event we served the following:- Strawberry Fields Salad- King Crab Risotto- Truffle Mushroom Risotto- Curiocity Burger and Parmesan Truffle Fries- Cheese/Fruit Platter- Late Night Tacos (fish/chicken)The beauty of a food truck is that you can accommodate all your guests restrictions (vegetarian, pescetarian, ect.) and everyone gets to sample everything. No more of the stuffy salad and chicken/meat options that you are stuck with. It becomes a food tasting experience and you better believe ALL of our guests went out for seconds and thirds. Because we hosted an open bar and had an "adults only" wedding, we knew our guests were going to booze it up and as a result, we needed to feed them twice. Jason easily accommodated our need and served up delicious "late night" tacos right before the evening was through - SO good.My husband and I can't speak highly enough for Jason and the staff of Curiocity Catering and would welcome the opportunity to have them host another one of our events in a heartbeat. We already have them booked for our 10 year vow renewal in 2023! Thanks to Jason and the Curiocity Catering Team! More...

We hired Curiocity to cater a casual holiday party at our house.  What could be more perfect and fun than a "food truck" parked out front where guests can wander in and out all night and order sliders, fries and salad?! We actually got to enjoy our party and our guests rather than fussing with food (is there enough? is it still hot? where did all of the forks go?) or clean up (their serveware is biodegradable - no dishes to wash!) The food is delicious, fresh and plentiful. I'm not a vegetarian, but I don't eat burgers. Ever. Period. But I had 2 of Curiocity's sliders that night. Yum! We opted for a simple menu to keep the cost down, but Jason was completely open to creating any menu we'd like.  I would LOVE to have them do another event for us sometime.  Great experience all the way around.

We hired Curiocity Catering for our wedding and couldn't have been happier.  After looking at a ton of catering options, we decided to think outside the box in order to find a cheaper option.  Fortunately, we found Jason and didn't have to sacrifice quality or flavor for affordability.  Immediately after meeting Jason and trying some of the menu, he was hired.  I got such a great vibe from him: easy going, yet professional.  You could tell he loved what he does and wanted us to have the best day possible.  His staff were equally friendly and we got rave reviews from all of our guests.

If you want to break free from boring wedding food, hire Curiocity to cater your wedding.  We did, and it was one of the best decisions we made.Think a truck can't handle a wedding? Believe me, Curiocity can.  We had 170 people in a park in Old Town with only one power outlet; it wasn't a problem. We needed a menu to suit all sorts of tastes and food sensitivities; Curiocity created it (sliders, truffle fries, lobster risotto, delicious spinach salad, mac & cheese, with enough extras for after dinner snacking).We needed hors d'oeuvres for the cocktail hour; Curiocity's spread was a work of art. We needed bartenders; Curiocity came to the rescue.We needed someone to bring water and ice. Oh, Curiocity took care of that, too.All in all, Curiocity's team was flexible, stylish, and fun to work with on the day of.  Our guests raved about the food and loved the element of surprise the truck provided.  Curiocity is good for the bottom line also.  All of this fantastic-ness came at a huge cost savings over pretty much any other catering option we looked into.  Do yourselves and your guests a favor and call Curiocity. You won't regret it. More...

There is only one rule when it comes to catering:  hire CURIOCITY.As a producer of a recent film shot in San Diego, I can attest to the logistical nightmare production can become.  There are many moving parts, no two days are the same.  However, there is always one key thing that can be done to ensure that everything goes as smoothly as possible -  provide great food for your hardworking crew.  A happy crew is a smooth production!  The food provided by Curiocity was amazing!  From the Breakfast Smoothies to the Brandt Beer Sliders, it was all fresh and delicious.  Everyone on the crew raved about how good the food was!Of course, planning catering for 60+ people (allergies, vegetarians, etc.) with a changing schedule, can be in itself, difficult to sort out.  Curiocity, once again, delivered.  Jason and the entire staff were as professional as it gets.  They were helpful, understanding, and able to provide a unique menu to meet our budget.  Best food and service I've had from a catering company.   I highly recommend their services!

We were so excited to find Jason and his crew on yelp! My fiancé is EXTREMELY picky when it comes to food so finding a caterer for our wedding I thought would be a bit of a challenge. I called Jason and we met up and did a tasting and the rest is history! Jason was very responsive to emails and phone calls showed up right on time and dinner was delicious! All of our guests raved about dinner and said it was the best wedding food they have ever had. Easiest and best wedding decision we made! More...

Wow, I have entirely too much to say about Curiocity Catering considering they nailed every aspect I was looking for in catering my wedding. I hired Curiocity Catering food truck to provide both the dinner and appetizers at my wedding reception. I had been on a food truck quest and I have to say it was really difficult to find the right catering business in Southern California who was experienced, affordable, had a modern & artistic aesthetic, and offered QUALITY food, that is until I first talked to Jason, who manages the Curiocity food truck. From the first phone call to the initial food tasting, to the wedding night. I kid you not: Curiocity Catering was perfect in every way. First and foremost, the food was an-out-of-the-ball-park homerun! All of my guests were raving about & saying how FRESH & DELICIOUS the food was.  Due to the nature of my wedding, I was going for a more casual & laidback vibe. The food truck was an absolute necessity. However, the food that Curiocity provided was better than a formal "sit-down-and be-served" kind of dinner. The menu Jason put together met every foodie's needs (carnivores, vegetarians, pescatarians, etc). Even people who are used to formal sit down dinner weddings were wow'ed by the food at mine.  It was also much more experiential because my guests could go up to the food truck and order their food, or to the other stations offering more variety. Jason & his team are all about exceptional service and they were friendly, efficient, and made the food looked visually beautiful. As far as aesthetic goes which I am a huge fan of, the Curiocity Food Truck looks modern, clean, and artistic. It is not too busy with flamboyant artwork, and the team does a good job of adding small details (plants, lighting, etc.) to make it look pleasing to the eye. They even use awesome plateware which is eco-friendly and stylish, sustainable disposable dinnerware. Ultimately, I would genuinely & highly recommend Curiocity Catering for any event.  Did I mention I had over 250 guests at my wedding? Curiocity did a PHENOMENAL job of providing dinner for so many people at an AFFORDABLE price. I was so impressed by the team, they had be EXPERIENCED in order to manage the scale & size of my wedding, AND they offered a much more intimate food experience to my guests. AND THE FOOD WAS BOMB!

----Corporate Event----Allow me to paint you a picture... I work for fortune 500 company, leading worldwide in Commercial Real Estate. My work base is in LA and I was faced with putting together a corporate event in San Diego during the 3-day International Conference of Shopping Centers. An intimate gathering for 600 investors, retailers and developers in attempts to strengthen current business relationships and further network to establish future business. What does one do? Where does one start? In this day and age, the internet. Started with typing a few key words: "best", "friendly", "reasonably priced catering", and "amazing cuisine". Searches corralled me to Curiocity Catering. After placing an initial call and leaving a message, my call with promptly returned, and I had the pleasure of speaking with Jason. Talk about someone who really took the time to ask the right questions, find out as much as possible about me and my business in order to better cater to the needs surrounding this event. You may think all of that due diligence was to minimize future client interaction, but that was only the beginning of many exchanges to come. Along the way he emailed proposed catering menus, answered many emails, took the time to take phone calls, and even set up a tasting so that I could sample the cuisine well before the event. The phrase "going above and beyond" doesn't even begin to encompass Jason's business motto and standard for customer service. Fast forward to a little over a month, (oh yes, I forgot to mention... this party was planned within a narrow window of time.) and it's time to party and display all the hard work and effort on the part of Curiocity Catering. They arrived earlier than expected to help me set up (amazing!) The food was incredible (but I already knew it would be) as was voice by countless attendees. Their tray pass and bartending skills were absolutely seamless. And by that I mean, not only did they know that they were doing, by keeping the food and libations flowing, but they were working the crowd as well! Such attentiveness is often overlooked and not nearly valued enough. As a professional in the Real Estate game, knowing your audience and tailoring your service method is key to any successful transaction... Just another reason why Curiocity Catering was the way to go! Did I mentioned they stayed with me to clean up and load my car after the last party guest left? To refer to this company as full service would be an understatement. From the very beginning of the event planning until the party was completely cleared and cleaned up, Curiocity Catering really showed professionalism and showmanship with their work product. The ENTIRE staff was so helpful, friendly, professional, polite, and a pleasure to be around. I could not be more pleased with the end result and for ultimately choosing Curiocity Catering for my corporate event. Without a doubt  Curiocity Catering was a big part in why my event was so successful. If you're looking for a catering company that is every word synonymous with amazing, then look no further than Curiosity Catering. (Thank you for EVERYTHING, Jason and staff!!) More...

Jason and the Curiocity team catered our wedding a few weeks ago and I have nothing but positive things to say! We found the Curiocity food truck thanks to some amazing Yelp reviews when looking for a wedding caterer. I am SO GLAD we found them! They were so easy to work with and everyone was so nice and friendly on the day of the wedding. The food was amazing! We had the sliders, parmesan truffle fries, chicken tacos and strawberry salad. Everyone at the wedding really enjoyed the food, we couldn't be happier with how everything turned out! It was also really easy to work with Jason... he was quick to answer emails with my questions, really personable and had a great sense of humor. We saw the Curiocity truck at the Adams Ave food truck gathering a week or two after the wedding and made sure to say hi and grab some food and they remembered us and were once again so friendly. I would recommend Curiocity to anyone looking for catering and if you ever see them out around SD grab something delicious to eat! More...

We had Jason and the gang cater our wedding c couple weeks ago and it was even better than when we first tried them out! They are very reasonable for wedding catering and I can honestly say it was the best wedding food at a wedding us and a lot of our guests have ever had. It was small portions but definitely enough to fill you up. And they made sure the bride and groom got their food first :]One thing i didnt expect was that the guys even came in and helped clean up the plates etc. I was very pleased with them and will suggest them to everyone. We will be eating here again on our anniversary for sure More...

It's not easy planning a wedding across state -- or ocean, for that matter. We live in Honolulu but our wedding was at our friends' house in San Diego. We had hoped to come over ahead of time for a tasting but weren't able to make it happen. We booked with Curiocity Catering just based on the online reviews and a couple phone calls with Jason -- and crossed our fingers.The end result? We couldn't have been happier. From the food to the service, everything was absolutely perfect. Our guests raved about every dish -- the crab risotto, the beef sliders, the crusted ahi and even the fries (and more). Not only was the food absolutely delicious and a hit with everyone, but the staff was incredibly polite, gracious and a welcome part of our day. We really felt that everyone truly cared about the success of the event.Curiocity Catering was a big part in our successful wedding day, and my new wife and I thank them greatly. If you have a wedding or other event and are looking for a caterer to truly deliver at every level, Curiocity Catering should be at the top of your list. More...

Jason and the crew catered our wedding at Rancho Guajome in Vista, CA. A food truck was exactly what we needed---a portable kitchen so the food would taste as fresh and delicious as possible.I have one word to describe the food: FANTASTIC. We got so many compliments on the food! My dad loved the  beef sliders (a rarity for him) and my coworkers told me they ate so much that they couldn't dance as much as they wanted to. We had a choice of beef or veggie slider, strawberry salad, fries, and the sweet corn and crab risotto. The risotto was my favorite, and the veggie slider was my husband's favorite.Jason was very helpful and patient during the the entire process. He revised quotes, kept me updated on any little change, and always responded to email within a few days. His crew did a fantastic job by checking in on us during the meal and making sure that our photographers got food. I cannot say enough about this company. Amazing food, great service, and they won over all of our guests---including the ones that were dubious about a food truck doing catering for a wedding. Highly recommended for anyone looking to cater an event (as well as anyone looking for a great bite to eat)! More...

We had Curiocity cater our wedding and it was one of the best decisions we made for that day.  Jason was such a pleasure to work with from the first day we met him.  He went above and beyond to work with our budget and was kindly available to answer any and every question we had.  Jason spoke on the phone with me during our planning process and helped me brainstorm ways to save money on my wedding in ways that didn't even have anything to do with him.  We were also looking for a bartender for our wedding and we were so disappointed in the insanely high costs and poor customer service from the bartending companies we were talking to.  Curiocity was able to provide us a bartender too and at the best price.Not only were the people at Curiocity a complete joy to work with (that would be enough to hire them alone) but the food is SO SO good.  The sliders will melt in your mouth - one of the best burgers I've ever had.  My husband won't even eat salad but the summer spinach salad was one of his favorites.  Our guests were absolutely raving about the food.  So much better than typical-overcooked-chicken wedding-food.I would recommend Curiocity to anyone and everyone, and I hope we have a big event again so we can hire them again :)  I would give them 6 stars if I could - you will not be disappointed!

Jason helped us with the menu selection and it couldn't have turned out any better.At our wedding we had the strawberry salad, burger, veggie burger and fries.  The food was amazing and and we were told many times by our guests that it was the best food they had at a wedding.I would recommend Jason and CurioCity Catering to anyone looking for great food and great service.

Jason and his team catered our wedding and I seriously could not have been happier. First off, NO DRAMA. Every other wedding vendor we worked with seem to have some kind of melt down or issue the night of. Curiocity set up, made great food, fed people quickly, had more than enough for everyone, cleaned up and bailed without needing to get the my husband, myself, or our parents involved in anything. It was wonderful. The food got rave reviews; many of our guests asked for his info for future events. During the whole process, Jason was very cool and down to earth and easy to talk to. Not to mention, the pricing for what you're getting is PHENOMENAL. After trying several super gross "wedding food" caterers who wanted twice as much as him, we settled on Curiocity Catering and have NO REGRETS!!! More...

I had the pleasure of meeting Jason & his team twice while making catering decisions for my upcoming wedding.  First, Jason couldn't be nicer!  He is professional, sincere, confident and passionate about his business.  He always responded quickly to my questions or requests, and as a bride to be, there are plenty of both!  Second, THE FOOD IS AMAZING!  The Strawberry Seduction salad- Bananas! It's SO good!  The Risotto is pure heaven to taste!  And the show stopper really is THE SLIDERS!!!  To quote my fiancé, they were "the best damn sliders" he'd ever had.  If you have the opportunity, eat at Curioucity!!  Word.

We just did a tasting with Jason at Tristers Wine Bar...the food was amazing.  We had the strawberry salad, chicken tacos and sliders with truffle parmesan fries.  Everything was delicious.  The chicken tacos were moist and super flavorful.  The slider was cooked perfectly and juicy...the fries were so addicting, I'm glad we just had a sample, or it would've been dangerous.  Jason is extremely responsive, a dream to work with for any bride!

Jason and his crew were amazing.  I was in a bind, a week before my big Dirty 30 bash my other caterer bailed on me. I searched on Yelp and called a few places.  Jason not only responded to me quickly, he scheduled me to do a tasting next day and I BOOKED him. He customized the menu to keep close to my budget.  And I thought personal service was a dying breed.  Jason and his food and crew more than exceeded my expectations.  My guests could not believe how good the food was.  I am very happy with the job he did and will definitely refer and hire him again and again.

Ordered a burger and fries. Waited 45 minutes. Watched someone who ordered the same thing 20 minutes AFTER me get their food first. Told the person working the register that they may have mixed up the orders and her response was "your order will be up in a minute".  At this point I'm about to light myself on fire when someone comes out from the truck, hands me a burger with my money back and apologizes for what happened.  That little gesture made me feel like my business was valued and will keep me coming back to Curiosity. Sometimes it's the little things that turn people into loyal customers..And yes, the food is delicious.  That's why I bumped em back up to 4 stars. More...

Curiocity Catering is amazing! We considered them for our wedding this year and went with another catering company due to the powers that be. I was impressed with Jason from the start, he was always quick to respond and so is so professional. And the food... phenomenal! Hands down some of the best food I've had all year. The wild mushroom risotto was delicious, my fiance was scraping off every last bit that he could and he hates mushrooms. The beef sliders were mouth watering. I would recommend Curiocity Catering to anyone looking for amazing food and service, you can't go wrong. More...

KNOCK YOUR SOCKS OFF FANTASTIC!Jason is absurdly amazing. The food is incredible. And the service unheard of!75 happy bellies all exclaim it was food worth talking about! Jason catered our wedding two weeks ago and people are still thanking us! It was a meal that will go down in history. At one point my husband and I were walking around to the tables to say hello and one group leaped up and said, "Geniuses! You're geniuses for this food!" Our applause, appreciation, and grandest gratitude goes out to Jason.THANK YOU! You made the most memorable day of our lives full of flavor worth savoring! (We'll be visiting the truck soon. We're lifelong fans)! More...

If you want excellent service, prompt responses, complete professionalism, and tasty food that your guests continue to talk about weeks after your event, hire Curiocity Catering!! Jason was nothing short of a dream to work with when we were planning our November wedding. We wanted something simple and different for our reception, and we believed we had found that in Curiocity just by talking to Jason over the phone. Once we went and actually tasted the food, though, we knew we really, really wanted them to be a part of our day. Jason worked within our budget and was a great resource for all my many questions about how much food we should offer. Our guests loved having a food truck there, and we have received nothing but praise about the food. The salad is delish--I even saw friends that never eat salad going back for seconds. The sliders and fries are total comfort food...nothing better to eat on your wedding day when you are starving! And the risotto....oh, the risotto....there are no words. So incredibly good, my mouth is watering thinking about it now. We really can't thank Jason and his team enough for providing excellent catering services on our wedding day. It's so great to not only have such good food, but to also know you can completely trust the vendor and not feel like you have to micromanage them--something every bride and groom want in their vendors! Love them and hope we can use them in the future for various other parties! Book with Curiocity--you won't be disappointed!! More...

I am a huge fan of food trucks.  When food trucks first came to San Diego, we had slim pickins!  Thankfully, now we have trucks like Curiocity which give us awesome food!  Jason makes an incredible burger.  It is cooked perfectly and is one of my very favorites in San Diego.  I HIGHLY recommend checking the fries out as well.  I know truffle fries are everywhere but these are perfectly seasoned and have the right crunch/soft balance.  Thanks Curiocity!!

I cannot say enough good things about Jason and Curiocity Catering. My husband I knew we wanted delectable food with an emphasis on local meats and produce for our wedding. Dry chicken breasts and garlic mashed potatoes, for example, wasn't going to cut it. We initially received quotes from 5 different food trucks, but were SO underwhelmed with their communication skills and pricing. Fortunately, we found Curiocity. *Cue the choir of angels*Jason is a dream! He emailed and spoke with me on the phone whenever my Bridezilla instincts took hold. We ate, we budgeted, we discussed logistics, we budgeted again, and repeated the cycle. Jason was the ying to my yang - absolute serenity in comparison to my anxiety. The anxiousness, however, proved to be in vain as the food and service on the day of was unbelievable. Our guests feasted on a summer salad full of nectarines, pecans, and feta cheese. Their eyes lit up at the sight of Brandt beef sliders and parmesan truffle fries. Never has wedding food been so desirable. We received compliments for days, and my husband and I were happy to support a small local business, as well as local farms and ranches. But here is the BEST NEWS:  you do not have to throw a wedding in order to have the epicurean experience that is Curiocity. Access their schedule on Twitter and treat yourself today! My recommendation (though it may be obvious) is to try the sliders and parmesan truffle fries. You're welcome. More...

We use curiocity catering to cater a birthday party at our home.  I corresponded back and forth with Jason to fine tune the menu and to accomodate our vegetarian friends and various food allergies.  He was super flexible and was able to ensure everyones food needs were met.  They arrived on time and served our guests with tray pass servers.  We started with the strawberry salad (one of the best salads I've ever eaten!!).  It was a big hit with the guests and the perfect way to start off with an impressive bang.  We then had the king crab risotto which was another big hit.  It was a very well balanced dish with just the right balance between being rich but not overwhelming.  We then had truffle fries and brandt beef sliders (veggie option was also avail).I can't say enough good things about Jason and his operation.  After living in SF for several years we've been spoiled into having very high food expectations and I can honestly say curiocity exceeded them.  Having the food truck come to our home was a bit more expensive than other options but quality just cost more.

We used Curiocity Catering for my boyfriend's surprise birthday party and it was fantastic.  The food, Strawberry salad, Pad Thai, sliders and truffle fries, was delicious and a hit with everyone at the party.   I think our favorite was the sliders, we even had some the next day and they were still delicious!  The coordination was very easy and they arrived on time.  They provided a server to bring the food around the party and I was surprised how helpful and easy it was. She did a fantastic job and checked with me about when to start/stop serving each dish.  After the amazing food, the best part was no clean-up.  Even my boyfriend (who I found out was not originally a fan of gourmet food trucks) is now a fan, particularly for parties.  I would definitely use them again for another party.

I hired Curiosity Catering to cater my wedding this summer, July 2012. My wife, family, friends, and I we very pleased with our overall experience with Curiosity Catering and their food is amazing (very deserving of a 5 star review.) We have a lot of foodies in our family and they were complimenting the food all night long. Our friends and family loved how polite and professional the servers were and raved about how fresh and delicious the food was.I was incredibly delighted with how flexible, professional and helpful the entire crew at Curiosity was from start to finish. The menu included a mushroom risotto(vegan and gluten free), brandt beef sliders, Parmesan truffle fries, and a delicious spinach salad with fresh strawberries, goat cheese, cocoa roasted almonds  and a strawberry vinaigrette. There menu is focused around locally grown and produced ingredients and they support local farms and farmers markets. Their food is fresh, well portioned, and scrumptious in every aspect.We found Curiosity Catering via Yelp reviews. We knew we wanted to have a food truck to cater our wedding because we love food trucks, it is a more affordable option for wedding catering, (especially if you are on a tight budget), and our venue Quail Haven Farms (Vista, CA) has a catering space in the reception area to accommodate  gourmet food trucks. We were finding great reviews about their food and they were rated one of the top food trucks in San Diego, so we decided to give them a try. We met with Jason McAllister, the owner, and sampled foods off the menu and we hired them instantly to cater our wedding. They arrived early to the venue to set up and prepare for the dinner reception. They brought their own serving tables and they had more than enough staff to ensure setup, serving, and clean-up went smoothly. They provided a handful of drink options (our guests loved the glass-bottled coke and sprite options) and they left the extra beverages at the venue when they were done serving dinner. This was very helpful since we had an outdoor venue and it was a hot summer afternoon!I definitely recommend Curiosity Catering to cater your wedding or any other event and stop by their food truck to grab a bite to eat (you will not regret it!)

I attended a wedding this past Saturday with several friends and we all thought the food was amazing. The cheese burgers were cooked perfectly and came packed with flavor, as did the parmesan truffle fries which were just ridiculous. There was also a strawberry salad which I devoured in about a minute - the fresh strawberries just nailed the salad in my opinion. My friends had the wild mushroom risotto, which they both raved about - but for me it was all about the burger and the fries. Not sure how many times I heard other guests around us biting into their burgers and saying "oh my god", but suffice to say those burgers were a BIG hit!. The staff on the truck could not have been nicer and the presentation of the food was outstanding. The truck was actually parked right behind the banquet table (outside wedding) which is where all the cooking was being done. Pretty cool looking set up they have. Anyway, well done Curiocity Catering - Wish you had a truck in SF and I'll see you back in SD real soon. More...

I like food. I like good food. I like food trucks with good food... so I was very excited when I found Jason and his Curiocity crew on Yelp. I asked for a catering quote for my 30th birthday party in UTC/La Jolla. He responded in 2 days, got the contract and menu down the 3rd day, and everything was signed, paid for and ready to roll within 5 business days !   We shook hands for feeding 32 hungry people with their signature burgers OR risotto, AND their legendary truffle fries AND a small side salad for each person. He arrived perfectly on time the day of the event, parked right in front of our apartment, and put out the chalkboard sign with the event name on it (ah yes, they know that they have to have some way of defending their delicious food from walk-in guests). The salad was out first, with local greens and strawberries, mixed with their light dressing. The burgers and risottos were ready to eat within 30 minutes as promised, and they were kind enough to prioritize the birthday boy and his wife with a full tray of everything, served with their environmentally-friendly plates.The burger: I agree with all the previous raving comments. The mustard-y sauce adds such great complexity and flavor ! You could tell that the beef was not your typical chain-supermarket beef and it was cooked to perfection ! I often go for meat cooked medium-well but this medium-cooked burger hit the spot !The fries: Very tasty, super crunchy on the outside with more texture on the inside. Too bad they get cold very fast outdoors, otherwise I would eat 3 servings.. oh wait, i did that anyway.Risotto: My wife had the risotto and she loved it ! The rice was soft but not sloppy, the grated cheese and the mushrooms blended really well together. There was a healthy black peppery taste to it, which I also enjoyed a lot. Our friends said that they all had a lot of fun waiting for their food (which allowed them to chat standing up in small groups) and then devouring it. It's not that easy to make 30 people all very happy, but Jason made sure that happened. By the end, we were so full and content that we didn't even mind the rain that started right at the end, just in time for the cake, which we enjoyed upstairs. We were so pleased to meet someone doing such an honest and great job as Jason that we insisted that he and his crew join us to have some dessert as well, and they did ! I will definitely seek them out again and check their website for their location .. until he opens his restaurant one day ! More...

I had an amazing Oatmeal Beer Bratwurst from Curiocity. (yelp.com/biz_photos/3FWJ…) They happen to be at the North Park Street Festival of the Arts, so I decided to check them out. The ordered the brat for $6.00 and a bottle of coke. The brat was absolutely amazing!   it was extremely juicy and full of bold flavor. (yelp.com/biz_photos/3FWJ…) The grilled onions were perfect too. The were succulent but they maintained their nice crunch. My only complaint, which is a small one, was that the bun could of been a little bigger. Every time I took a bite, onions would fall off, so then the onions became finger food. That being said, it was still one of the best bratwurst I have ever had.The hunt for the Curiocity truck begins.... More...

A few months back I was bored at home one morning and found out that Curiocity was going to be over on Loker in Carlsbad for lunch. I figured I'd try out this truck scene and convinced my wife to come with. We pulled up and no-one was around (it was almost closing after the lunch rush) but we ordered a burger and fries and meatballs & pasta. Awesome. No other word to describe it! I was happy we found some good food on a hunch, and we got to thinking. Later that day we figured even though it was about 10 days until my wife's birthday we could still put together a party and maybe Jason and his crew could help us out. . . . . . Even on a ridiculously short timescale he managed to fit us in to his schedule and that was it. Party on, dudes!He pulled up outside our house about an hour before the party was due to start to get the prep done, and we just got on with having some fun with our friends. His server (highly recommended - she'll walk the party with a tray of food until everyone's full) started with the Arugula salad and that was enough to get everyone talking about the food. Then, the risotto. Normally done with yellow corn, it is amazing. But he did it with white corn and that really made the grade. But the best was yet to come. The Brandt Burger (we had sliders) and truffle parmesan fries were the absolute hit of the night. Folks started to go outside to the truck to get more, and they kept on coming!Jason and his team were very professional, clean and thorough in their delivery of top notch food for us and our guests. It's been almost six months since the party and there isn't a week goes by without me trying to get to the truck again for more burger and fries.You must give them a shot - its a small menu, but everything is amazing. Definitely worth seeking out for lunch or at one of the many SD Truck gatherings around the county.Thanks Jason, for a great service - I know you've got another booking from one of our guests that night so I know I'm not alone in my praise!

Curiocity is probably one of the more Gourmet foodtrucks we have in SD. I like their crab cakes and their failry large (it's not always on the menu).  The burger that they serve is really good as well. The bun is toasted which is something I always give a plus for. It can get a little pricey once you include their parmesan truffle fries and a drink to your order. Catch them if you can, you won't regret it. I think... hahaPros:- Friendly staff- Food is largeCons:- A little expensive- Hard to find (so follow them on twitter @curiocitytruck) More...

I've been to this food truck three different times now and I just keep coming back.  Their burgers are always gold.  I get a burger and truffle fries each time and then something else just to try out other menu items.  All solid.  They have a cool menu and portions are big.  They're super nice and accommodating (I get picky with certain condiments).  Highly recommend.  If you see that truck, get to it.

What's better than rock climbing? Rock climbing next to a brewery with a food truck :) The first time I tasted curiocity catering I was indoor rock climbing in sorrento valley, and decided to go across the street to green flash brewery because I also heard Curiosity Catering was going to be there. Went with a group of friends, we all had something different on the menu along with their truffle fries!SooOOooOOooOOoOO GOOOOD!!!  Everyone decided to share a little piece of their order with everyone else and we all had nothing but good things to say!I had the Brandt burger and the sauce they put on their is sooo delicious I knew I had to come back again some time for more....and so I did on a different day and at a different location :) I'm glad they travel to different locations because I too am never at one spot!All you need to know is the food is beautifully delicious.  It's just enough to leave you satisfied in a TERRIFIC mood and not over (or under) tuffed! Everyone in the truck is so nice and friendly. You gotta check them out!They're a force to be reckoned with!! More...

my coworkers and i were definitely curious of this mysterious new black food truck suddenly parked on fridays of our street. it always seemed vacant when we glanced at it making our journey to Miho in UTC. awwww poor food truck.of course there is a long line the day we finally decided to try it. oooof course.everything on their menu sounds tasty and upscale. i was tempted with the mushroom risotto but i still think risotto feels like an app or side dish than a meal - and too heavy for lunch. soooo burger it was! wanted to add blue cheese to it but not enough to spend an extra $1 :/ so went with the cheddar.burger is good...and i appreciate that they arent afraid to cook a proper medium and have it pink in center. this is a messy burger with having sauce but who cares if its tasty. loved the pickles on it. portion was just right to not make me stuffed and i finished feeling satisfied. we wished added bacon was still an option but what can you do. tried some of my friends fries and they were quite good. but the burger + side of fries would have been way too much. best to share!id classify the meal as good not great. the greatness title is still held by miho for their burger. the quality of meat is just set a bit higher...grass fed and organic matters, plain and simple.all in all this is a worthy food truck.*one gripe - wish they would actually keep their menu current on their website rather than the "sample menu." but what can you do. it appears the burger and risotto always there but salad changes and other items.

Jason and Curiosity helped us throw an amazing neighborhood happy hour with only a week of planning!  My husband and I had the bright idea to host a happy hour and have a food truck supply the eats.  After surfing the net and searching through countless Yelp reviews, we found Curiosity Catering.  Jason, the owner and chef, was very responsive and open to helping us plan the menu with only a week to spare.  We met him at his stop that day (love that he posts his location everyday), had an impromptu tasting, and booked him.  Jason was easy to work with and extremely flexible and professional.    The happy hour was a hit!  Everyone loved the food and the service (and the hip vibe of having a food truck in the neighborhood didn't hurt).  The risotto is to die for!  It's tasty, filling, and all organic!  And best of all, there was no clean up after the party.  Jason rolled in and rolled out and we rolled ourselves back into the house to actually enjoy our own party.Now everyday, I have a craving for risotto.  Luckily, I always know where to find the Curiosity Catering Food Truck!

Only three weeks out from our destination wedding, our catering plans fell through.  Enter Jason and the Curiocity crew.  Upon my request for a bid, he responded within hours with some follow up questions.  He worked with us to develop a menu which met both our tastes, diet requiremetns and our budget. (We had a group including Ironmen and marathoners who love their carbs, crossfitters who do not, vegetarians and pescatarians.)  Jason exuded enthusiasm and excitement over the opportunity to cater our wedding, and was consistently available to us throughout the process.On the day of the wedding, they arrived promptly, set up quickly, and the servers were friendly and efficient.  They made sure everyone had enough before tearing down and cleaning up.Now to the food - our theme was "San Diego/beach" since all of our guests were flying in from out of town.  While most of the items we picked off of their current menu (sliders, kombu dashi ahi tuna, arugula and spinach salad, parmesan truffle fries), we did make a special request for San Diego style fish tacos.  We provided a sample recipe to give him an idea of the flavor we were going for, and I was a little nervous about how they would turn out since I didn't get to taste them before the day of the wedding.  I should have known that they'd be more fantastic than I'd hoped for!  The food was an absolute hit with our guests - and they aren't easily impressed.  We are from Seattle, and if you know the Seattle food scene, you'd know Seattlite foodies are harsh critics.  I'm happy to report that we heard nothing but rave reviews.  Even the 20-something crowd from Austin was bowled over, and we all know they have sampled their fair share of food trucks.I would highly recomomend Curiocity to cater your wedding!  I know I'll be stopping by the truck again and again.

Jason and the rest of Curiocity Catering are beyond awesome. They used to drive from Mission Valley to Carlsbad (Loker Ave East) on Fridays.I stay away from red meat but I have heard rave reviews from co-workers on how amazing their burger is. It was a pleasant surprise they had chicken on their menu. The chicken nuggets and the strips were perfectly cooked and tasted amazing. My favorite are the  truffle fries. I'm not sure what it is about them, but they are delish.Loker Ave East surely misses Curiocity. More...

The Risotto is great and tasty. They used to sell a risotto with crab leg meat and some other vegetables (corn, spinach) and it was very tasty. Where were you going to find risotto like that in San Diego? Now they have a mushroom based risotto that I feel is even better.  The truckers are always friendly and nice as well... a pleasure to be around and chat with. I look forward to seeing them around town all the time. More...

When I went to San Diego I expected to enjoy a five star dining experience.  So, I was pretty upset when my friends drove us right up to a food truck called Curiocity Catering instead of a beautiful restaurant with a view.   I'm on a perpetual diet so when I take a bite of anything it needs it to be fantastic.   I figured I would let my friend's eat and then we could go to a restaurant afterwards.  Then I smelled the aroma of the Parmesan Truffle fries and became panicked.   I asked for one bite of my friend's Brandt Beef hamburger and then it was all over.  I attacked her  truffle fries and next thing I started ordering everything they had.   The Alaskan King Crab Risotto with Sweet Corn was heavenly.Even though I didn't get my five star view, I got a five star gourmet food experience...and I am still talking to my friends in San Diego!Check Please!

I arranged for Curiocity Catering meet us at Grantville park in Mission Valley for a 4 course surprise lunch for my girlfriend on her birthday.  We arrived hungry only eating a small breakfast.  We started with a spinach salad topped with blue cheese, the dressing was a perfect blend of flavors!  Then we had a dish of risotto for our second course.  I've only had risotto once before, but my girlfriend says that it is hard to make and that this was the best risotto that she had ever had.  Surprisingly,  I was feeling somewhat full, but there was an order of fries and a burger that was up next.  The fries were cooked in Truffle oil and coated with Parmesan cheese, the blend of flavors was amazing.  My girlfriend said that it was the best French fires she had ever had and I cannot think of any other fires that I've had before that were so good.  Then came the "slider" hamburger. We both agreed that there is no better burger out there, with it's natural hormone free beef.  I'd compare it to the $16 burger at The Lodge at Torrey Pines.  And finally, a deep fried "chicken nugget" that was remarkable in flavor and texture, it simply cannot be compared to any other nugget served at a fast food restaurant, it is in a different league.When we were finished, I was full but not bloated- a sure sign of high quality ingredients. And we practically skipped dinner, just eating a snack instead .Mike Nopper More...

Truffle fries are off the hook!  All ingredients are the highest quality and freshness.  Worth checking out for sure

I am lucky enough to eat off this truck 2-4 times a month when they come to Green Flash! Everything that I have eaten off of this truck (I've made it through the whole menu!!) has been awesome, but I do highly recommend the burger.. You can't beat it! Also - they might be putting a beef bacon slider on the menu - YUM! More...

My husband and I stopped by Green Flash Brewing Co. to get some beer but we were starving!  Beer on an empty stomach, not good. Luckily Curiocity was there.  At this point, I would have eaten anything.  We got a Brandt cheeseburger and the parmesan truffle fries.  While waiting for our order, I looked it up on Yelp and was surprised to see 22 reviews, all five stars.  I thought something squirrely was going on... then I tried the food.The burger was absolutely the best.  Strong mustard flavor, which I like, very complex flavors with high quality ingredients.  And the fries, perfectly cooked.  My husband inhaled them.  Great with some Green Flash beer.  Amazing what they can do in that truck.  And friendly folks running the truck to boot.I'm glad we stumbled across great find.  I will definitely be tracking this truck down the next time I am in San Diego.

I was first introduced to Curiocity Catering by attending an Art Event in Hillcrest in the summer of 2011. I tried out their Alaskan King Crab Risotto with sweet corn. It was absolutely fantastic which gave me the idea to have them cater a wine tasting party at my home for 20 of my friends. Prior to scheduling the dinner, I gave a list of wines that would be served at the party and Jason emailed me a list of 4 different tapas-style plates which were paired up with each wine. The Curiocity Catering crew pulled up right in front of my driveway, cooked the food and had a couple tray pass servers serve the food to our guests. The food was served on biodegradable plates, so there were no dishes to do!!! Did you hear that? No dishes!So, if you're looking for an affordable, delicious, catering experience that focuses on organic foods I highly suggest Curiosity Catering. They will be catering my buddies wedding this summer and I can't wait to see what they will be cooking up then. Stay tuned for my next review. Thank you Jason!!! More...

WOW! The new food truck wave has hit San Diego and blessed us with the Curiocity truck!! I have had the burger and the brat and they were both amazing. All ingredients we're fresh and well prepared. Let's not forget the fries, they were awesome. The owner operator is running the show and he has a hot Asian chick making the food!! The overall rating is 5 for great food, great price and awesome owner!!! More...

While San Diego is relatively new to the food truck renaissance, the food served by Curiocity can hang with the scene in established gourmet food truck-spots like Portland or Los Angeles.  Most of the other trucks operating here in San Diego couldn't say the same.  Consistently excellent and innovative cuisine and an always-friendly staff. Highly-recommended! More...

Curiocity Catering serves the BEST burger I've EVER had... side-by-side, they blow away Burger Lounge, Five Guys, Smash Burger, etc. My girlfriend rarely eats red meat, but after having a bite of my burger that I insisted she try, she unregrettably ordered a second serving. The parm fries are one of the best in town, and I'm definitely paying them a visit to explore the all-star menu I've heard great things about. In having the visibility of watching them prepare the dishes, with only fresh gourmet ingredients, I was thoroughly impressed by the friendly team's culinary know-how. The experience puts Curiocity in a whole 'nother league, which supports the respect and admiration they've earned in the Catering game  I'm definitely having Curiocity serve at my next event or friendly get-together. In my opinion, one of the only true "gourmet" food trucks on the road. More...

F.Y.I: Curiocity definitely did not kill the cat...more like made the cat jump for joy and wanting more & more!!!! My first experience eating this delicious food was at a Food Truck Spot in Mission Valley.  Walking around and seeing what all the food trucks had to offer, Curiocity grabbed my attention just with its name...OBVI!!!!  Sooooo of course I had to get a lil sum sumthin...The Parmesan Truffle Fries...MMMMMMM GOOOOOD! The chef and workers were very friendly and recommended great suggestions of what to get. Curiocity is a food truck I am keepin an eye on because this food is ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!

My husband and I are big fans of the Curiocity truck--but you've been warned: their food is addictive! Trust me. After one bite you'll be hooked! The pancetta salad is HANDS DOWN my favorite salad in town---super yummy and flavorful...and it's a salad so it's healthy, right?! Their burger and fries are also incredible. If you love burgers, you've done yourself a major disservice if you haven't had theirs yet.  We've had their food many times now, and not once have we had a bad bite--IT'S ALL GOOD!! Follow them on Twitter and find out where they'll be stopping next.  And now I'm hungry! More...

If you want your taste buds to do a dance, your tummy to be forever in love with food and your wallet to still be full of money afterwards then you need to find this truck!  Good prices for exceptional food!  The burger and truffle fries are an absolute grand slam!  But the truffle fries alone can't be missed!  I order them with salad just so i can have some each week!  And speaking of salad, imagine fresh strawberries, candied pecans, and soft creamy chevre sitting on a bed of fresh mixed greens and each piece lightly glazed with a lemonade vinaigrette!  YUM!!Curiocity truck knows how to make great food, if you see them rolling through town, make sure you chase them down!

The amazing Pancetta Salad!  (My wife's absolute favorite salad)2. Fantastic Mushroom Risotto!3. Finished it off with there amazing Brant beef Sliders and fries!I'm a burger connoisseur and the Curiocity Truck burger/sliders are my absolute favorite not just in SD but anywhere.  I love that burger. The sliders and fries did not disappoint. Jason, the owner/chef hooked up my wife's portions which was awesome!  Even though she's a fairly petit women she still put it all away!  Jason also worked with me on the surprise for the party and parked the truck right by our garage where all of my wife's friends busted out of to surprise her!Needless to say but I highly recommend them. I think they would be a awesome choice for a cool wedding reception.Oh and two other things i like about them.1. They use all natural local ingredients.2. biodegradable plates/forks More...

We had the mushroom risotto (lots of different mushrooms, spinach, truffle oil and parmesan), the Green Flash brat, and truffle fries. Amazing. I rarely like anyone's risotto except for my own - this was better than mine. The brat was spicy, the onions perfect. And the truffle fries rival anyone else's in town. More...

Had the good fortune to recently try this lunch truck and they knocked it out of the park with their burger and fries.  One of the best burgers I have eaten. I highly recommend them.

I tried the Brandt beef burger with cheddar cheese, which was great - absolutely fresh beef, and the potato bun was buttered and toasted just the right amount for my taste. While we were waiting, Jason let us sample some parmesan truffle fries. LOVE.Also tried the Arugala, Spinach, Pancetta Salad. I really like the Champagne Honey vinaigrette, and overall it was a good salad. I am a pretty small person with a small appetite and I wouldn't recommend this salad as a stand-alone meal for most people. Overall, the food is good -- fresh and freshly prepared. I'm looking forward to trying the rest of the menu! I think I'd go with 4.5 stars for taste, 4 for value, 5 for customer service :) More...

Recently, I was at a poolside party where tray passers were serving amazing shrimp ceviche,  and other fresh items.  Some items consisted of beef sliders, YUM! parmesan truffle fries, as well as chicken tacos with a marinated onion and pepper sauce and a fabulous chunky guacamole.  I loved the idea that the food was made on site in the truck and was easily restaurant quality.  I also really liked the option of going to the truck a for special request or I could stay poolside.  Different craft beverages were available as well.  The whole experience was enjoyable.  Will definitely consider them for  my next party.
