What a wonderful day in the “City of Brotherly Love & Sisterly Affection”, otherwise known as Philadelphia.  Were were out researching for a new series of articles and found ourselves in Center City Philadelphia today.  After on 5 minutes in the city we were xtatic to come across a “Triple Threat” in Love Park.

It couldn’t get any better!  Jose Garces’ Guapos Tacos, the Latin Farmer & The Buttercream Cupcake Lady trucks were strategically positioned on the corner of 16th St & JFK directly in front of the visitors center of Love Park.

These are 3 of the lucky trucks that were able to gain approval from the Philadelphia Sept. of Parks & Recreation to vend in Love Park on specifies days and we couldn’t have been any happier to be there!

Guapos' Short Rib Tacos

After sampling a bit of Garces’ menu at the Philly Vendy Awards, we had to do it again.  One order of “Short Rib Tacos PLEASE”.  Can you say “T A S T Y” ?

Next, off to the Buttercream truck, better known as the “Cupcake Lady”.  We ordered up a chocolate cupcake with peanut butter icing and a vanilla cupcake with vanilla icing.  Can you say “D E L I C I O U S”?

We were a bit tight on time and are sorry to say we were not able to taste any of the Latin Farmer’s awesome sounding menu.  We will make it a point to sample the Latin Farmer’s cuisine when we get back Philadelphia.
