Is there a street food vendor's war brewing? Yes, if you are thinking of the new gourmet (upscale) food trucks phenomenon. They started in major cities and now have spread to the suburbs, the most recent location being West Kendall located in Miami-Dade County, Florida.
West Prince Road is somewhat of a street-food hotspot. Several great food trucks and trailers are within walking distance of each other, each serving something a little different, all well worth a visit.
In the midst of the “great recession” and all the preaching about how small business is the heart of the American economy, why not expand our investment beyond traditional brick and mortar businesses?
Only seven food trucks were brave enough to park along Abbot Kinney Boulevard last Friday evening. They had been completely in the dark - right up to the 6 p.m. start time of the monthly street party - as to whether they'd be allowed to set up shop.
The Taco Truck — the restaurant — opened July 9 with the same food, its metal logo out front a profile of their big rolling baby. Inside, floors resemble sidewalks and banquettes look like park benches.
But Last night, owner Lev Ekster opened the door to a quaint little shop in the Village.
