A new food truck has popped up at Last Exit, the food truck park on Sheikh Zayed Road on the way to Dubai. Called Pop!, the tuck is hard to miss — it’s bright blue, covered with splashes of colour and yellow polka dots.

The truck serves five kinds of fries and sliders like you’ve never seen before. These simple sliders are served on rainbow-coloured buns, adding a definitive pop of colour to your meal.

The menu is short and sweet with four slider options: spicy chicken and cheese, crispy chicken or beef with and without cheese. All sliders come with seasoned fries, but there’s also a selection of signature fries worth trying. The ‘Secret’ fries come with melted cheese, caramelised onions and a special (secret) sauce. There are also cheese and onion fries topped with fried shallots and cheese sauce; sweet potato fries with coriander and blue cheese dressing; Cajun fries with Cajun seasoning and simple seasoned sea salt fries. Extra dipping sauces include mustard, dynamite sauce and garlic aioli.

The cashier told me the food truck was named Pop! because of the sound the box of sliders makes when it’s opened. It does indeed make a popping sound — but you might need helping figuring out how to open it. I had to enlist the help of a food park attendant to teach me how to get to my sliders (take note: pop it open, slide it apart).

Pop! sliders start at Dh40 for two or you can get the Boom Box, which includes all four slider options for Dh80. An order of signature fries range from Dh15 to Dh20.
