Food trucks are the greatest, but they do have some problems, mainly that they're not food monster trucks. That, and they're tough to track down, unless you hit the Fall For The Arts Festival this Sunday, a gathering of South Florida's best movable grub boasting 19 vendors, most of which're taking the chance to shake things up. New deliciousness includes:
Michael's Genuine Food Cart
MGFC's popped over from the Design District with Michael's latest pig product, a mustard-glazed pork belly sandwich w/ pickled veggies, habanero mayo and a herb salad, also a savvy way of branding the good stuff that's cut with oregano.
Sakaya's Dim Ssäm à Gogo
This young truck is going waaaay off the resto menu with totally new stuff like a ssäm (lettuce wrap) with Berkshire pork belly that's been sous-vide then grilled, layered with pate, kimchi carrots, and spicy mayo; plus a bun dumpling with foie gras and pickled sweet peaches in a bao that's steamed -- probably because he's not pickled like the peaches, who're having way more fun.
Jefe's Original Fish Tacos & Burgers
Jefe's chefing up their Tacos Carnitas and Tecate-battered Ensenada-Style Fish Taco, based on an old family recipe from a surfer/taco truck operator so bad-ass everyone called him Jefe, a fact that should've made Who's The Boss totally moot.
Pod's got a couple new tricks up their trailer, including a short rib slider braised six hours in tomato & red wine, and their take on a Chinese-Cuban sandwich with Cuban bread, Dijon hoisin sauce, prosciutto-like ham, pork belly, house pickles, and head cheese, an alternate name for Herman's Head that was decided to be too honest.
If you can tear yourself away from the fattening, there's art stuff plus live music by the Bahamas Junkanoo Review, the Flip Side Kings, and Ozomatli, and it's right across the street from the Democratic Republic Of Beer, which stocks brews like super-heavy-hitting 11% Weyerbacher Blithering Idiot Barleywine, reminding you of the other failing of food trucks: they're not beer.
