Do you remember this post here from last years Food Truck Rally!?!?!? Well.... last Saturday was the 2nd Annual Food Truck Rally here in Jacksonville and I can already see this being an event that will continue to grow each and every year!!!
This year admission was free and there were about 15 trucks or so this time around, opposed to last year's 9-10. This industry is really starting to grow here in Jacksonville which is great because there's just something about food from a truck that makes it so much more special!!!
My goal this year was to visit a few trucks I didn't get to last time so my first stop was Winter Park Fish Company. I had never heard of them before but the extremely long line and awesome painting on the truck caught my eye immediately!
Come to find, this is a restaurant/truck is based in Winter Park (Central) Florida. I was a little saddened by this....I mean look at this menu...
I was pleasantly surprised that their menu was so interesting with a great price to go along with it!
I chose the Bang Bang Shrimp with coconut rice with almond pesto! THIS was a little plate of joy!!!
I ran into a friend of mine who had a vegetarian sandwich from The Salty Fig! It looked delicious and she said it was!!! If the the line wasn't so long I would've loved to try the Shrimp and Grits..
I made a stop at Le Petite Cheri for some cupcakes to go. I love that there's a food truck that sells cupcakes!!! How awesome is that? Another added bonus is that they're gluten-free and vegan friendly cupcakes!
I had my mind set on getting a red velvet but as soon as I got up to the front of the line, someone came out and scratched red velvet off of the menu. I was assured that if I got the maple bacon cupcake I wouldn't regret it....so I did.
To my surprise, it was delicious! It reminded me of pancakes and bacon but with a cupcake texture. It was great. I also had the salted caramel cupcake which was good as well! There was a caramel surprise in the middle of the cupcake!Due to the heat and the super long lines, this concluded my trip. There are still some food trucks in town that I'd love to try in the near future like Taste Buds Express and Happy Grilled Cheese but I will just have to wait to catch them on the streets of Jacksonville. :) I enjoyed the rally for the time I was there and I'm looking forward to the growth of the food truck industry in my city!
