Every now and then, you'll see someone inexplicably bolt from a good thing, whether it's Jayson Werth opting for Washington cellar-dwelling, or Conan splitting from NBC shortly after landing the Tonight Show gig, just so he could get his blimp-pilot's license. For food truck guys ditching a tropical paradise for Philly, eat up Far From Home.
FFH is a yellow-trimmed blue and red meat-mobile full'a goodies run by a Philly native and his buddy who spent the last two years working out of the same damn vehicle in St. Thomas, and're now hawking an assortment of burgers and dogs with touches of international flair, plus cupcakes, though how they fit the Eastern Kentucky varsity athletic program in a truck is a bit of a mystery. Crazy-decked-out burgers are handformed to order and served on buttered griddled buns, and include the provolone/ Caribbean ranch mayo Mighty Jerk, the bleu cheese'd, bacon-layered Mighty Euro, and the probably-fine-on-your-arteries, double-pattied, double-cheesed Mighty Big, also your new nickname if you can run the table on all of these. Non-burgers include butterflied 1/4lb dogs like the creamy cheddar-mac-topped Mac Dog or the Texas Chili smothered in homemade goodness, plus the culinary monstrosity Brazilly-Philly Cheese-Steak Dog: a traditional provolone steak with all the fixins, topped with a hot dog, cheddar cheese sauce, and shredded Parmesan, not to be confused with Shredder Parmesan, the sworn enemy of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Curdles.
For sides, they're frying up handcut curly fries and doing a chili-packed Frito pie in the bag, while drinks include the island-favorite coconut water, which, if broken into three words, is how a lanky redhead is plotting his revenge on Jay's bottle of Dasani.
