'Pig Truck' by Studio Swine.

" Pig Truck is an urban food stall that serves pig's heads in a land oven; an ancient method of cooking used in many native cultures throughout the world. A land oven is simply a pit in the ground used to trap heat and bake, smoke, or steam food. It is commonly used for cooking large quantities of food where no equipment is available. Extremely hot rocks are placed in a hole lined with sand and banana leaves, a prepared pig's head is placed inside and covered with more banana leaves to preserve the moisture and protect it from sand.
The stall is designed be self sustainable, made with very little resources and to function with very little energy; It uses no electricity or plumbing, the heat for cooking radiates from the rocks which are preheated at the start of the day. 
The stall creates an urban island in itself, whilst attracting customers with the simple communal cuisine. The corrugated roof bathes the stall in reflected gold light whilst the split log table can be pulled out of the truck to accommodate more eating space".
