Food Trucks Love

I read this article about food trucks trend on I think it is a very interesting an innovated way to attract people for a quick snack or a full meal!! I was amazed with all the different types of food that are sold on these trucks!!...adults are going crazy about them...just like the little kid chasing the ice cream truck!

Here a few of my favorite ones :)

Truck Stop: Boulder, CO
Best-Seller: "Short Rib Situation" Taco (sweet-potato mash topped with slow-braised spicy short ribs and caramelized onions)
Concept: Mobile Mexican feast. Three years ago, native New Yorker Rayme Rossello was considering her next brick-and-mortar restaurant venture in her current Colorado hometown. A trip back east brought to light the burgeoning food truck culture and she scrapped the stationary eatery in favor of the street. Her goal? To offer affordable Latin fare — $3 tacos and gorditas — prepared from start to finish in her hot pink kitchen on wheels, named Tina.

Lake Street Creamery
Truck Stop: Greater Los Angeles
Signature Item: Floats!
Concept: Mobile soda fountain of yore. Where did the float go? That's what the owners of Lake Street Creamery wondered when they were dreaming up their menu. Inspired by long, hot summer days, ball games, and Norman Rockwell-type times, the Creamery serves up new versions of the classics. To wit: a donut ice cream paired with Boylan's Black Cherry soda for a Jelly Donut float. Golly gee!

Truck Stop: Seattle, WA
Best-Seller: Burger
Concept: Seasonal fare from an Airstream. Skillet feeds fresh cuisine to hungry folks craving good, simple cuisine from a bulletlike retro trailer. The menu changes according to the season, but one selection remains: the grass-fed beef burger, topped with arugula, cambazola (a cow's milk cheese with French triple cream and tangy Italian Gorgonzola), and bacon jam (yes!), nestled in a soft bun and served with a side of hand-cut French fries.

Don't you want to have one? too!!
