WHAT YOU’RE EATING: Relatively diverse fare for a food truck, including options with roots in Mexican, Asian and American-influenced cuisines. Sandwiches, curries and burritos are regular menu staples.
WHO’S MAKING YOUR FOOD: Siblings Jennifer and Collin Henning have long shared a passion for cooking. Both describe growing up in a family rich with food-centered gatherings, and their brother owns a restaurant in Bozeman. Last May they pulled the trigger and opened the Chameleon, their self-contained kitchen on wheels. Because the mobile kitchen is full-service, Chameleon is set up to do on-site catering, and can change up its menu on a dime.
BESTSELLER: The most popular dish is the taco trio (your choice of slow-roasted pork, chicken, carne asada or sauteed veggies tacos — try them with habanero-pineapple salsa). Collin’s favorite is the cajun sandwich (grilled chicken, andouille sausage and peppers), and Jennifer’s favorite is the Singapore bowl.

WORD ON THE STREET: The menu is pretty expansive, with vegan and gluten-free options available, and alternate menu items can be requested. Also, be sure to ask about the daily special, which the Hennings usually tailor to their own cravings — often some sort of nostalgic comfort food like beef stroganoff. Seasonal drinks and baked goods also make special appearances.
