if you recall this post, you know how excited i was that truckin’ tuesday was yesterday, and i was sure not going to miss it this month! my roommate katlyn and i actually walked over there right when it started at 6pm and were able to beat the crowds.
we scoped everything out first, and then ordered from different trucks. i had a grilled shrimp salad from rockn’ rick’s that was oh-so-tasty, and katlyn had some korean tacos from ssahm bbq. we washed it down with some cold beer, and then stopped at the rockstar bakeshop truck for dessert. they have the best variety of flavors of whoopie pies that i’ve ever seen! katlyn got a classic, “sweet emotion” – red velvet cake, cream cheese frosting, and chocolate ganache – but i wanted to try something a little out-of-the-box, which seemed to be their specialty! i ended up with a “summer in the city” – blueberry cake, basil mint buttercream, and lemon curd. everything in that whoopie pie, from the flavors to the name, was absolute perfection to me. katlyn loved hers as well, and we both agreed that we might just become food truck regulars. it’s so nice to eat outside, and in our case, have a chance to walk and talk on our way to and from where they park. all the trucks seem to have awesome menus that make them unique – i found so many things at pretty much every truck that i wanted to try, and many of them had really interesting flavor combinations that intrigued me. i’ll definitely have to hit up that little caravan again soon! quite a brilliant idea, those food trucks are!
