The Park Vista High School Auto Show has always been about car owners bringing out the best of their new and classic collections, and the students in the school’s automotive program reaping the benefits of not only seeing these vehicles, but speaking to the owners and learing about their cars.
But for today’s fifth annual show, the organizers added a much-needed service to the event by contacting Jochen Esser at Gourmet Truck Expo, and the result was the arrival of eight food trucks, providing a variety of gourmet items for hungry showgoers. Today’s street eats included some familiar faces:
- Philly Grill’s cheesesteaks.
- PS 561’s gourmet hot dogs
- Divan Bakery and Cafe’s coffee drinks and desserts
- Cucina al Mare’s Italian subs, pizza and platters
- Taco Fresh’s variety of tacos and homemade salsas
And three new sets of wheels:
- B.C. Tacos, serving such fare as “The Missing Link” (a fried mahi, green cabbage and mozzarella cheese taco), the “Barbarian Bacon Cheeseburger” and, if you can handle it, “The Caveman” (a burger patty, steak and braised beef short ribs with cheese and lettuce, sandwiched inside a hard taco shell and wrapped in a flour tortilla).
- Joe Snow, with a truckful of frozen and colorful snow cone flavors and other ice cream treats.
- Los Chamos offers two Venezuelan treats: arepas and empanadas. Both are excellent walk-around foods; arepas are made from dough that includes ground corn. They can be baked or fried, then topped or filled with a variety of meats, eggs and even sweet fillings. Empanadas are made from a bread dough wrapped around the same fillings as those used in arepas, and they can also be baked or fried.
The links are included here so you can follow the food and go where the trucks go. While many of the trucks that come up to Palm Beach County are based to the south, more restaurants and individuals are getting into the business. Watch for the trucks, and don’t stop eating!
