You’re at a food truck court, a music festival, a convention or party where several gourmet food trucks are serving up ethnic and fusion cuisine, some of which is totally new to you. How do you find the best tasting dishes?
That’s easy. Ask your fellow event goers and food truck operators. At a food truck court, there is no stigma about checking out your neighbor’s meal and asking what is great and why. Do you adore spicy foods? Talk to diners at the next table. Do you abhor high-calorie meals? Ask your food truck operator to recommend a tasty, low-cal option. Don’t be shy. The easy sociability of food truck patrons is one of the best things about food truck dining.
Another indicator of delicious food is a long line in front of the truck. If you don’t want to wait, use your smart phone to check out yelp.com, zagat.com or other review sites for information about the various trucks at the event and the menus they serve.
Of course, the quickest way to score yummy food is to order something you already know you’ll enjoy, such as a rich, chocolate dessert or a fresh, healthy salad. But don’t be afraid to step out of your box and sample meals you’ve never before considered, such as halal food, Mexican-Chinese fusion or Asian BBQ.
When you discover your favorite dishes, don’t hesitate to share your experiences with friends, including the new friends you’re sure to make at the food truck court.
Most food trucks charge more for their foods than what you’d pay for an average hot dog or taco, but their offerings typically run less than the price of sit-down restaurant food. Taking credit cards is costly; so many food trucks accept only cash. Having cash on hand insures that you won’t have to order from your second or third choice food truck because you’re only carrying a debit card.
