Burritos and Tacos Truck

Update: They named the truck El Guero Mexican Food Truck, so I am updating the title of this article. They appear to be doing really well, there is now always a line when I go there for lunch.

There’s a new taco truck on the Temple University campus, and they are serving up some delicious, authentic Mexican eats! I first visited this truck several weeks ago, and since then I have been back FOUR times. The food is delicious and the service is excellent. Because I have visited so many times I have a lot to share about this much welcomed new addition to the Temple food truck community.

Schmear It food truck

It’s rare that I’m in the area early enough to grab a bagel from the Schmear It truck, which parks on select mornings at The Porch, but my husband and I were headed out of town at 30th Street Station and needed a quick breakfast, so we got there early to try these fancy bagels. They have a large selection of combinations, where you can customize the type of bagel, spread, and toppings. We opted to go for a couple of their special combinations rather than make our own, but now that I have their menu I’d be interested to switch up some of the flavors!

Dump N Roll truck

I was told about this truck by several of my readers as well as friends, so I have been on the lookout for them for some time now, and finally caught up with them this month at The Porch. I love that this truck has so many different items and combo platters where you can try so many of them at once! It is also a very popular truck, there was a line but it was definitely worth the wait.

Little Lulu Cafe truck

The weather is warm and that means food trucks are back out in force! I made my trek out to The Porch at 30th to find the Lulu Cafe truck parked there. I remember seeing this truck parked on Temple’s campus back when we had the Royal Tea Truck also parked nearby, but alas now both have left us. This is mostly a bubble tea truck specializing in all kinds of fancy flavors, but I was happy to see they had some lunch items available as well.

Royal Zarasa truck

Royal Zarasa is a labor of love launched by Terrance and Tiffany Hopkins-Bey in February 2018 as a means to share Tiffany’s love of comfort food. With dishes like BBQ brisket, shrimp & grits, chicken & waffles, salmon slaw sandwiches, and chicken wings, Royal Zarasa’s southern inspired menu made it hard to decide on what to have for dinner as we visited Love City Brewing.

Double Trouble Waffles & French Toast

Double Trouble Waffles & French Toast has been in business for about a year and I caught up with them on a chilly Sunday morning in Mt. Airy. With such an extensive menu, it was hard to make a decision! My husband and I were both in the mood for waffles (although next time around I plan to try the french toast, after looking at their Instagram photos!). The waffle sandwiches also sounded and looked delightful!

Cloud Coffee cart

Coffee has always been a big part of my life, and before I started working in higher education, I managed coffee shops for about 12 years in every aspect of the industry. Because of this, I have learned a lot about the coffee business and I normally buy whole beans and brew my morning cup at home. But there are days, especially long days when I have class after work, where I am jonesin’ for a second cup of joe, and that’s where Cloud Coffee comes in handy.

Ramble Pizza

Pepperoni Sausage Pizza

I love pizza, and I am not one of those weirdos who puts restrictions on what can go on a pizza. I am not one of those people who thinks pineapple on pizza is a sin. Put whatever you want on your pizza, it’s the perfect food vehicle for that. But every once in a while, I want a simple regular pie. A good crispy, thin crust, a herbaceous sauce, and just a couple of toppings. The problem with a lot of pizza places is they overload the toppings and the crust gets floppy. I like a good, crisp sturdy crust. Ramble Pizza had all the basic elements of a decent pizza without any gimmicks. Just a good, solid pie.

Slurp food truck specializes in made-from-scratch ramen, accompanied by Korean fried chicken and Asian-inspired tacos. Slurp owners boast that their ramen broth simmers for days, and I can attest that the flavor definitely packs a punch. On a cold, rainy night when soup sounded like a perfect end to a long day, I gathered a couple of friends to try out this truck.
