Cameo Macaron, a dessert truck specializing in the dainty French cookie (not, of course, to be confused with macaroons, the French macaron's coconut counterpart).
The Chubby Chickpea calls their cuisine, “Sephardic Street Fare,” but the term is more poetic than precise. This is classic Israeli road food: hummus, falafel, babaganoush, and grilled meats wrapped in laffa. My dining companions agree that the chicken is juicy and well-prepared. Our side of falafel is tasty, and the hummus substantial. It’s less a spread than a dish of its own.
One of the best parts about Boston summer must be the SOWA open market. Held on Sundays May through October in the artsy SOWA district, it's got art, artisans, and best of all - food trucks.
Food trucks have rapidly multiplied on Boston streets and plazas, with 75 gourmet-style restaurants on wheels now serving up everything from portobello mushroom paninis to Vietnamese rice bowls. With convenient and relatively cheap food, the trucks often have long lines at lunch.
The food truck, which does not charge for meals, is the latest addition to the summer program that provides breakfasts and lunches to more than 11,000 young people each day at more than 120 community centers and schools.
If Boston were a desert island where I was to be stranded and had to pick one food truck to eat from indefinitely, Mei Mei would be it. Sibling owners Andy, Margaret (who goes by Mei, which is also the word for "little sister" in Mandarin), and Irene Li put out some incredibly imaginative and well-executed food, almost all of which has some roots in the Chinese cuisine they grew up cooking and eating with their family in Brookline.
Food Truck Wednesday is moving to Boston Avenue United Methodist Church this week and July 31 due to landscaping at Guthrie Green, according to Josh Lynch of The Dog House.
This Saturday, July 20th, Rich Cambriello will fire up his ‘Bone Daddy’s Burgers’ food truck (complete with burger delicacies like ‘Die Muenster Die’) and drive approximately two blocks to sell his storied burgers on Revere Beach at the National Sandsculpting Festival.
