Given just how many people get their yum on at the BapMobile, it feels like this food truck has been sitting pretty in Kilcoole forever.
In truth, this customised ambulance first opened its doors in November 2019, a few months after marketing whizz David Hall finally gave into his passion for cooking.
Having moved from South Africa to Ireland after 20 years of helping international businesses look good, it was when David’s award-winning chef buddy Pierce Maher suggested he start a food truck just like his own Wexford food trailer, The Potbelly Cafe, that a totally new career opened up. David trusted Pierce’s instincts and experience – the man came 6th in the first-ever Irish Masterchef, after all – and, just as importantly, he loved the idea of an old ambulance converted into a café on wheels.
That ambulance makeover had David thinking of Ghostbusters, even if the BapMobile name does send the brain to a different superhero franchise.
“I’ve lived my life to the phrase ‘eat, drink and be merry for tomorrow you might die’,” says Hall, who runs the food truck with his wife, Carey-Anne, “but the best part of the food industry and running the BapMobile is the craic you have with all these happy, hungry people who know they’re about to sink their teeth into something good.
“The key ingredient for us is fresh food and produce that we always source locally. We want to leave a good taste in your mouth long after you’ve burped…”
