Down at Ethyl’s this Thursday I hooked up with 4 food trucks for a Food bonanza. Despite the chill in the air it was worth the trip and lets face it it is going to get a lot colder and we will still be needing to eat well!
So who was there?
I moved on to the Wagyu Wagon which was attracting attention and had a very tempting menu. I ordered a 80/20 Burger which was a burger of Wagyu ground beef and ground bacon, topped with a fried egg, avocado, grilled onions, provolone, and tomato for $10. It took a while to prepare and alongside the other brave or foolhardy souls I waited with anticipation. It was well worth the wait, the fried egg topping always makes any burger great and I managed not to spill any of the juice down my top. This was a mean burger totally awesome!
Not to be outdone the 5411 Empanada Truck was also there. I had to get a couple of these to take home with the intention of eating them for supper. Sadly they pretty much lasted long enough to get photograped. The Ham and Cheese had a good solid meat content, but for me the star of the show was the caramelised onion, which had a lovely sweet filling. I should have bought a whole bag of these (I will next time!)
Finally I had to get myself a little sweet temptation to take home to have with my cup of tea. The Sweet Ride Truck was there to assist with this cup cake need. I snagged myself a red velvet cup cake and thus far I am managing to save myself from eating this cake tonight. It might even make it all the way into the office with me tommorrow, or at least until after I post this blog entry.
All in all a pretty successful trip down to Ethyls for some Food Truckin Lovin. Although I may need to walk a few miles tomorrow to burn all of this scrumptious goodness off.
You can track all these trucks on twitter and facebook (thats what I did) and on their websites
