Food Trucks

This is a catch-up post. H had left the food trucks for me to do… But, I never wrote that post.

There is no doubt that food trucks are important for encouraging innovation in Adelaide. Let’s hope that burden of red-tape doesn’t drown them.

In the United States – the street food scene is vibrant especially in New York. Below are our experiences with food trucks.

There a food trucks in New York but they are not so easy to find. There are certainly a lot of street vendors selling lots of hot dogs and pretzels. Some, however, seemed to have especially long lines.

We found four trucks in New York. Funnily enough, two of them were dumpling trucks. The first was in Times Square and was a snack after a show and three were along the five boro bike tour. At the Conedison rest stop there was free grilled cheese quarter sandwiches and at the bike festival we benefited from a short queue at the japanese dumpling truck and followed by dessert from the waffle truck (all incriminating photos have been destroyed).

The presence of food trucks seemed to be much more obvious in Boston. There was a daily congregation of food trucks near South Station. We had the pleasure of sampling three trucks. The first was completely unexpected in somewhat deserted area in an old port area around the corner from the Institute of Contemporary Art. Their name says it all the Chicken & Rice Guys… they sell chicken and rice.
