These days, food trucks seem to be all the rage, and according to the Food Network that I have been watching a lot of lately, some of the most delicious and unique foods are being served from them!
Food Truck Bazaars have been popping up all over Orlando and last night Brett and I decided to meet some friends up at a local food truck gathering to see what it is all about.
First we had to scope out all of the trucks, and Brett’s eye was on the Twisted Cuban!
Our first stop, however, was the Fork in the Road, where we decided on our first appetizer, the Mac n Cheese Pop!
The Mac n Cheese Pop had a great texture, and was made with small pearl pastas, which was not what we expected. Brett and I both agreed that it could have used a little salt to bring out the flavor, though!
On our way to the next vendor, little Winnie got bombarded with some kiddies who just fell in love with him and were so excited to pet him! I had to take a picture, it was hilarious and I could not stop laughing!
Our next appetizer was from the flatbread truck, because we heard “The Demolisher” was amazing!
As you can see, Brett and I basically demolished this one before I could take a picture! It had everything from bacon to banana peppers on it I swear, and was topped with a funky green “Yummy Yummy” sauce which had the most amazing flavor!
After the appetizers, we headed for the main course and decided to chow down on a Lobster Roll sandwich made from a truck that only served Lobster Roll Sandwiches!
The sandwich was delicious and was filled with tons of lobster and some huge chunks! I must say that this sandwich stole the show of the night! It was amazing!
After brett headed off to try his beloved Cuban Sandwich, I strolled by a truck that had someone pressing potatoes by hand in one of their windows. I must say, that hand pressed, fresh potato fries are my ultimate weakness! I had to get a side of these babies and try them for myself!
They were so good and fresh, and a $2 side of fries yielded the above, so I had to share with the group! They were also a hit and a favorite with everyone! Fabiana and I did eat the bulk of them though…. oh and Winnie stole two of them!
Of course we could not forget about desert, and it seemed like the Yum Yum Cupcake Truck was a favorite with the locals and by the time we got there, many of the flavors were sold out!
There were still plenty to choose from and we decided to buy a pack of 4 cupcakes to share.
We decided on, Tiramisu, Chocolate on Chocolate, Vegan Pumpkin, and Peanut-butter Chocolate.
The cupcakes were deliciously moist and full of flavor! My favorite, of course, was the Chocolate on Chocolate. The Tiramisu was also amazing and so was the Pumpkin! The Peanut-butter Chocolate was very good as well, but was definitely the most rich and was very sweet. As much as we all wanted to continue eating these delicious cupcakes, after all of the other foods we tried, we had to bring them home!
All in all, I must say that these Food Truck gatherings are quite fun, and reminds me of a small food and wine festival!
I am definitely looking forward to attending my next Food Truck Bazaar!
Have you ever eaten out of a Food Truck?
