Azusa Murakami and Alexander Groves of Studio Swine have designed a mobile food stall for cooking and selling pig heads.

Called Pig Truck, the stall has been built around an existing bicycle frame, with a bucket placed at the front where the pigs head is cooked under a gold corrugated roof.

Using an ancient method of cooking, heat expelled from hot rocks is trapped inside the bucket and the food, covered with banana leaves steams inside the makeshift oven.

The stall uses no electricity or plumbing, using instead heat radiated from the rocks and a water bottle attached to its frame.
