The food truck craze has hit Orlando. Every weekend, gourmet food trucks gather and set up shop in different neighborhoods and residents are delighted. This past weekend, the trucks parked in Avalon Park and I went on my virgin voyage to try out affordable gourmet dishes. The air was cool and moist and the clouds were steel gray and hung low over the park. The imminent threat of rain didn’t dampen anyone’s moods. Kids were playing frisbee and soccer, whilst seasoned food truck connoisseurs lounged in there own chairs basking in the breeze.
Food trucks are a fun and convenient way for chefs to deliver creative and innovative food to people. There’s no pretentiousness when you’re balancing a plate of food in the palm of your hand while sitting on the sidewalk. Prices at the Orlando Food Truck Bazaars range from $1.00 -$10.00. It’s convenient for patrons to sample a variety of cuisines that they would otherwise pay quadruple the price in any restaurant.
