Durham Central Park’s annual Labor Day Food Truck Rodeo is Sunday. These events are so much fun!
Little Bee caught Asheville’s attention for its authentic Thai food, mostly because it was served from behind the counter of an Arden gas station. Took, who cooks everything herself, is dedicated to detail — so much so that waits could often be painfully long at the restaurant.
With the rolling vendors an increasingly popular option for meals, and with owners like Smith asserting they’re as legitimate as brick-and-mortar eateries, parties have prepared what they say are reasonable guidelines for service in Wilmington with fair play among competition.
An hour before it began, the Food Truck Rodeo drew hungry hordes begging for crab burgers, crawfish po-boys mixed with squash and tomato pie – all of it cooked on the humming floorboards of four-wheeled vehicles.
About 70 food trucks and other vendors will descend on Fayetteville Street this weekend, drawing thousands of people and filling the street from the State Capitol to City Plaza.
For those of you interested in where to find these street eats that have become all the rage, we’ve compiled a list of upcoming events where you’ll find everything from surf & turf burritos to fried green tomato grilled cheese sandwiches to champagne & berries flavored cupcakes.
The menu for the truck is fairly simple, with several salads, hot and cold sandwiches and burgers. The cooks do as much prep work as possible the morning of truck runs, but they cook burgers and hot sandwiches to order and assemble cold sandwiches on the spot.
Food trucks, long popular as lunch destinations and snack providers in primarily urban settings, have gained popularity in recent years as festival attractions and previous rallies at Rural Hill have attracted large crowds.
The Durham Bulls will host the first ever DBAP Food Truck Fest as well as two nights of fireworks and an appearance from Brobee of Yo Gabba Gabba! in the upcoming five-game homestand starting July 10 at Durham Bulls Athletic Park.
The truck itself was made in England specifically for soft-serve ice cream, an old tradition in England, but a fairly new one here, and the Sticks and Cones truck is the only one in the state of North Carolina.
