With so many food trucks and so many choices these days, choosing where to eat is becoming difficult. Here are three options that are fairly new to the food-truck scene. Prices are less than $10, and the food sells out quickly, especially on sunny days.
To find out where the trucks will park, follow them on Twitter.
Neato’s Burgers offers drive-in-style burgers, hot dogs and fries. But here the meat is ground fresh and cooked to perfection, the hot dogs snap when you take a bite and the fries are cooked in duck fat, making them rich, crisp and incredibly delicious. (@NeatosBurgers)
Cave Cafe bills itself as Afro-Italiano fusion. The star on the menu is the spicy chicken curry – a huge mound of rice, mixed vegetables and chicken stir-fried with plenty of hot sauce. It’s $9 and enough to feed two. (@TheCaveCafe)
It’s all about home cooking at the Home Street Home. Unfortunately, the grilled sandwiches blue-cheese-stuffed burgers and fajitas were sold out by the time I stopped by, so I got the only thing that was left – bean tacos wrapped in a lightly fried flour tortillas and topped with crema and sharp cheddar cheese. They were satisfying, but next time, I’ll know better and get there earlier for more choices. (@HomeStrtHomeTrk)
