There's nothing wrong with showing off a few of your favorite things, unless they're just raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens...all that worldliness, and that's really the best you've got, Julie Andrews?! For a vehicle benevolently devoted to sharing one man's favorite
doorbells and sleigh bells and schnitzel with noodles eats, check out Burger Beast Truck.
From the patron blogging saint of South Florida gluttony, rotating chef-cast BBT lets the Beast bring his most beloved food to new hoods in a truck done up with the Burger Beast logo and the phrase "In Beast We Trust", although if they start serving floating orbs, that could easily get Altered. While the offerings're TBD, the truck'll plate more than just burgers, and set up in hoods far away from each resto, bringing to Dade Broward faves including Charm City Burger Co. outta Deerfield, Hollywood's Quickie's Burger & Wings, and Fort Laudy's Gilbert's 17th St Grill and Georgie's Alibi, and that dude better have one, after reportedly making all those girls cry by "kissing them". For Dade spots they'll spread around, it'll be 8oz. Burger Bar and Burger & Beer Joint from Sobe, and Cuban burger specialists El Mago De Las Fritas from West Miami, plus there'll even be eats celebrities like Food Networker Ingrid Hoffman and Lee Schrager, the dude behind the South Beach Wine And Food Festival, who plans on doing patty melts, even though the peppermint candies are even more delicious when they're all hard after you freeze them.
BBT'll soft launch this week at the new Street Food Friday (a monthly truck gathering at NE 14th St between North Bay Shore Dr and Herald Plaza), with a lineup including Dim Ssam a Go Go, GastroPod, Latin House Grill, The Rolling Stove, The Fish Box, and Sugar Rush Desserts, which damn well better be serving some crisp apple strudel, or there'll be an even tougher problem to solve than Maria.
