Archive for Miami Trucks
If you are easily overwhelmed by too many options at a food truck roundup, the event at Seminole Casino Hollywood might just be for you. There were 10 trucks, all serving different food and I decided on the one with the longest line.
Food Junkies not only had the longest line when I arrived at the event, they had the longest line the whole time I was there. It has to be said, I was there a long time because the food took about 30 minutes or so to come out of the window. They disclose this with a blurb on their menu, they state that their food is made fresh and ask for the patience of their customers. Boy, were we patient.
Reading the menu you get the idea that the food is a combination of Island and Comfort – two of my favs! They carry some Conch, Shrimp and Fish dishes as well as dishes like Chicken and Waffles. They also have some freshly baked goods and a super secret punch that I believe is made after a delicious Caribbean drink recipe, but you didn’t hear that from me!
I finally got to the front of the window, ordered and waited what seemed like an eternity for the following delicious menu items.
I have to say, I’m not one for this kind of dish but the Food Junkies did it right. The Waffle was the perfect “Plate” to catch the Chicken and Maple Flavor. The Wings on this dish were amazing. As I sit here and write about them, I detect some drool collecting. They were cooked perfectly!
Next up I took a few bites of their enormous side of Seafood Slaw! Seriously, for 10 dollars I could have had this side dish as my meal and called it a night! The Coleslaw was fresh and tasted homemade and the Seafood in it was delicious! Definitely worth the $10!
Next up (I know, I can’t believe I ate so much) was the Conch Balls. We all know these as Conch Fritters and they are rarely anything to write home about. The main difference in the Conch Balls from the Food Junkies is that there is actually large chunk of delicious Conch in them!
Whew! I was waddling away from the Food Truck after this meal! Luckily I had their Super Secret Punch to wash it all down with. It’s so sweet it’s almost as if you’re having dessert.
Everything off this truck was worth the wait, the staff were so appreciative of our patience it made it all the more enjoyable of an experience.
If you can find this truck behind it’s epic line of food fans, do yourself a favor and give them a try!
Become a Food Junkie:
Mushaboom! I say that word and start singing the Feist song that helped inspire the name for the tastiest – wait, the only vegan food truck this side of the county line!
I know you’re thinking that the food must be way too green, way too bland and way too boring to stand up to any other the other food trucks you’ve visited. But, you are wrong!
Walk up to this playfully wrapped truck and prepare to change the way you feel about eating vegan.
While the menu does include vegetarian staples like Portobello mushroom burgers and falafel; these two girls are definitely not resting on classics for success. I took advantage of the fact that they make any burger a slider and tried the Chickpea Parm and Black Bean burgers. Make it a combo with a side of fries and a soda for $11. Besides the fact that this lunch was a steal, it was delicious!
I started with the Chickpea Parm! Made up of chickpeas, tomato sauce and vegan cheese, I bit into this little slider and thought they had sprinkled it with magic. Seriously, this burger has no meat on it but I chewed it as if it was a regular meaty patty. It was not tough or chewy it just didn’t have the texture you would expect from a sandwich made almost entirely of chick peas.
Next up was their spicy Black Bean burger. A classic taken to new heights by chopped jalapeño and their special sauce! Tell me this doesn’t look like a burger!
It was fresh tasting and had just the tiniest hint of spice from the jalapeños. Serious flavor inhabits this black bean burger.
If you’re not into things vegan, try their fries. They definitely stand up against any other fries I’ve had. Fresh cut and cooked to perfection, a dash of salt is all you need to do these puppies justice.
These two ladies are the real deal. Next time you see them on the street wave, honk or better yet, stop in and give their vegan goodness a try. Meat eater or not you will not regret it.
What do you know about the Baketress? Or maybe you haven’t heard of her yet? It’s Chef Richard Hales from Sakaya Kitchen (Dim Ssam a Gogo)’s new Dessert Concept with Pastry Chef extraordinaire Vanessa Paz. It will feature lots of homemade desserts including pies, doughnuts and even coffee. Below you can find a menu for it’s upcoming pop up debut at the Coral Springs Food Truck Festival on Sunday November 6th.
Why pop up? You’ll never know when she’s gonna be there. The Sakaya Kitchen Truck had a mini artwork renovation which means you now know what to look for.
And what post would be complete with out some food shots. All pics courtesy of The Baketress.
Guess what friends? We are happy to announce that Ms. Cheezious will be able to spread their Cheese Love even more with their second truck, MC². Ms. Cheezious’ fans just can’t get enough (gratuitous Depeche Mode reference) of their cheezy goodness. Stylistically it will look like the trucks from Los Angeles. What does that mean? Well, you’ll have to wait until next month when the truck will hit the road. Stay tuned to the Ms. Cheezious Facebook and Twitter pages for more info.
All of the B.C. Tacos have catchy names. One interesting thing to note is that there are only hard corn tortilla or soft flour tortillas available . One of their specialties is the over the top Caveman Taco which somehow involve tons of meat, hard and soft tacos. Tortilla chips with 4 homemade sauces and a Smores Taco round out the menu which you can check out below.
El Rey De Las Fritas make its long awaited debut at this week at Street Food Fridays. It’s only fitting that they make it during National Hamburger Month. Check out the Guayabera on El Rey, so awesome.

Someone smell that? It must be the unmistakable smell of steak on the grill. Che Grill is bringing “Argentine Cuisine” to the Miami Food Truck crowds. There are also Empanadas and Choripan on the menu plus, a little Chimichurri on the side never hurt anyone.
