Your neighborhood ice cream man has got some major competition.
The food truck has taken on a whole new meaning in recent years. Nowadays, you can get almost anything served out of a truck and it not be as sketchy as what’s served on New York City street corners.
Food truck festivals move in convoys around cities across the country and have become an essential part of food culture. So, last week, Two Seventy took its staff meeting out of Boca and down to Quiet Waters Park in Deerfield Beach to check out a “Food Truck Invasion.”
The laidback atmosphere and friendly company made for a good time. The amazing food we tried made it just the first trip of many to come.
Here are some of our favorite, local vendors from the event:
While Aunt Adela’s has a range of treats from subs to Argentinian pizzas, they are best known for their empanadas.
Seeing as she’d never tried one, Emily started the evening off with a beef empanada just for a little taste. The shell was flaky and not to greasy, and the meat was warm and savory.
Inside a lime green truck was some of the freshest tacos we have ever tasted. Alexis chose their Carne Asada taco which consisted of grilled steak, guacamole, onion, lime, and cilantro.
Surrounded by a soft shell was tender steak and delicious guac, the onion and cilantro wasn’t too powerful either.
Crazydilla is where Emily really chose to dig in. She grabbed one of their Cuban’s and was greeted with flavor overload.
The Cuban packs Cuban pork, Serrano ham, swiss cheese and, oddly enough, pickles with a garlic aioli for dipping. But, while it was delicious, it will take some serious hunger to finish. She opted to share with Alexis so she could continue to try other trucks.
In case you didn’t know: Most food trucks offer single serving options so that you can get a small taste and have enough room to try several places.
For dessert we all opted for the donut stand that had a consistent line since the minute we arrived. We all got something different and were not disappointed.
They make them to order so you are going to be standing there for awhile, but they are worth the wait.
Between all of us we got vanilla glaze, red velvet, apple cider and funnel cake. We all tried each others’ and had nothing negative to say.
