arquimaña's modern food truck sells artisanal hot dogs in bilbao



arquimaña has reimagined the age-old hot dog cart, giving it a modern facelift with an emphasis on local, artisanal goods. the project, which was conceived as part of a commission by the bistro guggenheim, aims to contemporize the sidewalk staple by focusing on clean, efficient design and a high-quality product.

the design was a commission by the bistro guggenheim



the project, entitled ‘the salchibotxo’, is arquimaña’s solution to the variety of functions the design was required to fill. the frame is a solid steel structure, surfaced in oak and equipped with custom laser-cut aluminum doors that provide shade for both the vendor and customers alike. the truck is capable of holding up to 150 bottles of beer and 500 sausages, while the griddle can be easily removed for cleaning.

the stall stocks locally sourced produce and beverages



salchibotxo serves only artisanal, locally made sausages by the tathe brothers and also stocks la salve, a regional beer crafted in bilbao. it is equipped with a full stereo sound system — for use on the street or at alternative culinary events inside the bistro guggenheim.

the essence of the crafted products are evoked with a balance of tradition and modernity
