I don’t care much for fads… music, fashion, food fads… they all come and go. I rarely know what’s cool anymore… but right now, I know: food trucks are in. I also know: I am pretty freakin’ happy about this current food fad going on. Cupcakes? PFT. Donuts? WHATEVER. Food trucks? BRING IT ON.
There was a “food truck frenzy” in West Palm yesterday. Why they chose a very busy shopping center to host a food truck convention…. I have no idea. It was crowded and parking was ridiculous. Luckily Alex and I got there about 30 minutes too early. We met up with Laura, then Michelle. A vegan soul food truck from Miami was there… so of course within five minutes Laura (also vegan) and I darted towards the truck and overloaded/indulged/food-coma-ed on soul food. I bought three meals, cause well… we’ve all got to indulge in crap every once in while… it keeps us human. The mac and cheese? Mine is so much better. The fried green tomatoes? Good… but better with hot sauce (a lot of it). The bbq “pulled pork” jack fruit sandwich? Tasty tasty. I’ve been wanting to make one of these for years… but haven’t been adventurous enough… also… jackfruit isn’t exactly the easiest to find (even here in south Florida). We ate a lot. Walked around. Switched off a cranky, tired baby and ended the night waiting 40 minutes in line to buy pork belly (or butt?) for Michelle and kimchi spring rolls for Alex and I.
It was a hot, sweaty, and delicious evening.
