Food Trucks in the Burbs

The food trucks phenomenon has arrived to the SFL burbs and I finally feel as one of the cool kids! While doing the early morning feeding I read on Twitter that the Food Trucks will be in the Dodge dealership parking lot down the street from our house – how perfect, we have family in town and no plans for the evening, so this was great timing – something new – something different – something cool. 

 It was a family affair – the chef, Mili-Mali (sleeping in her stroller) and Moi – please excuse the au natural face – the heat is really getting to me – no desire to do my hair, no make up.My lovely sister-in-law and her husband….they are expecting a bambino in November – can’t wait to meet their little one at Thanksgiving!!!! Isn’t she glowing!!!! So happy they came down to visit us and meet Mili-Mali. 

I have been following food trucks on twitter and Facebook for months now, but until tonight I have not had a chance to actually try one. I am absolutely amazed by the power of social media and explosion of Food Truck industry – this would make for an interesting business school thesis….anyone interested in this topic – I’ll collaborate with you!

I had a Macho Match Box – double burger with caramelized onions, some type of reddish mayo, with cheese, fries and Macho Taco. It was really good – delicious and greasy, just like the food truck burger should be.
We also had some Peruvian ceviche with fried plantains – D.E.L.I.C.I.O.U.S!!!! I love, love ceviche, but this was really good and I really think the secret was in the tangerine that was added to all the fishy goodness. 
I never thought of having ceviche with fried plantains but it was such a good pairing – perfect for soaking all the juices. I want some more…
The portions were big and I wish I could have tried some more, but I hear that the food trucks gather in the HardRock parking lot on Thursdays – I think I may have to schedule a Girls’ Night Out and try others because the food and the trucks looked so delicious.

So how was your Saturday night? Did you do something “cool”? Mind you, I am already in bed, so I am really not that cool, but for a moment I really felt like one of the cool kids…
