With summer finally approaching, it’s time to get outside and enjoy the warm weather while it lasts. Food trucks are a great way to get outside, grab a bite to eat and support small local businesses. Here are a few that you won’t want to skip out on:
Jalisco’s Blue Taco Bus:
Living up to its name, this bus is hard to miss driving down 7th Ave. Not only does its vibrant blue stick out, but unlike most food trucks there’s indoor seating accompanied by a flat-screen TV. The prices are cheap and the service is fast. They also have an unbeatable deal of six tacos for $12. I recommend the steak, chicken and beef tacos, but if you had to choose one you can’t go wrong with the steak. It comes with two sides of sauce, although the meat is flavorful enough to enjoy by itself. The pickled red onions are the cherry on top. You can even top off your meal with a Jarritos soda on a hot summer day.
Hashi Asian Street Food: Also located on 7th Ave currently, but moves around frequently, this food truck has a variety of popular Chinese dishes. The pork belly bao buns are the perfect appetizer to split between two, though you could make it a whole meal. The pork is thick but cooked perfectly so it falls apart in your mouth. They top it with an unforgettable hoisin and wasabi aioli sauce that gives it a little kick that’ll make your tongue dance. For your main meal, I’d have to recommend the bang bang shrimp. The sauce is creamy and sweet and coats the shrimp, rice and veggies perfectly. This meal is perfect for an evening outing. There is even outdoor seating so you can enjoy the warm weather.
Rendezvous: Holy crépe this place is good. Sweet or savory? It’s up to you to choose. This food truck has a variety of breakfast and lunch crépes and tacos to choose from, all loaded with unique and in-season ingredients. I recommend the season's harvest with egg crépe or the local ham and swiss crépe. Every crépe is soft and sweet, filled with a wonderful flavor combo. This is the perfect spot to bring some friends to enjoy brunch outside or simply to just treat yourself to a nourishing meal.
Mountain Berry Bowls: What's better than something cold and refreshing when the sun is beating down on you on a summer day. Mountain Berry Bowls is the perfect spot to get a delicious açaí bowl filled with fresh fruit and other toppings to your liking. It’s the perfect meal when you're craving something healthy and fresh. There’s nothing like coming back from the lake or a hike ready to eat and grabbing a smoothie bowl full of nutritious goodness.
