Have you done whole the food truck thing? I know it’s pretty trendy, but I haven’t had the opportunity to visit any food trucks yet.
Last night I lost my food truck virginity with a virtual food truck gang bang!
Friday morning, I got an e-mail about Food Truck Fridays, a Houston Food Crawl event held the last Friday of each month where you pay $30 and get tickets for liquor and food from a bunch of different food trucks.
I was so excited! Nothing like perfect weekend plans just showing up in your inbox, right!?
By the time we got there, though, I was in less of a good mood. The fastest way to make me upset is to be late — well, actually, it’s to not let me know you’re going to be late until…10 minutes after you’re already late. After waiting for Eric for a really long time with no phone call, I was not as excited when we finally made it.
Lucky for both of us, the sliders at the first truck cheered me up.
The mini burgers from Hit n’ Run Killer Street Food had Applewood smoked bacon, mozzarella cheese, thinly-sliced jalapenos, tomato, grilled onions, and chipotle mayo. They were so juicy and just…incredible. I could have just stayed at that truck the whole night and I would have been totally happy. I wish this truck was parked outside my office…or apartment…every day.
After the burgers, we got drinks from the juice truck.
Next we got in the longest line…
It’s no surprise the Zilla Street Eats line was so long — chicken and waffles have a way of making people line up. I got the chicken and waffles and it did not disappoint. I love sweet and savory combos!
Eric went for the mac and cheese — penne, gouda, green onions, and Cheetos.
He actually said it was probably the best mac and cheese he’s ever tasted. I have to agree — it was pretty spectacular.
Our last stop for food was the poke tacos.
They were good, but it was hard to go from the rich chicken and mac and cheese to the cool tacos that basically tasted like sushi. I think I would have liked them more if that had been the main event, but with the other foods, it was a weird mix.
Last we hit up the gelato truck for dessert.
With two strawberry cups in hand, we found a spot to sit in the shade to eat our dessert and dog-watch. The event was held at Boneyard Drinkery, a great dog-friendly bar and dog park in Houston. Eric and I were so bummed that our puppies won’t be fully vaccinated until this afternoon, so we had to leave them at home. We’ll definitely be taking them next month when we go back!
