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!Continue reading
Having spent some of my childhood in Sicily, I was intrigued by the concept of a truck specializing in Sicilian cuisine. More specifically, arancini or “riceballs,” which are small balls of arborio rice (used to make risotto), traditionally filled with meat and peas, then rolled in breadcrumbs and deep fried until golden. The name “arancini” literally means “little orange” which likely refers to its appearance resembling the small fruit, as you can see in this photo: Continue reading
I have been trying to catch up with this cute little banana whip truck for some time now. I was intrigued by the concept: a completely vegan “ice cream” made completely from bananas, with tons of fun topping combinations. Boasting a healthy and delicious alternative, the owner (?) in the truck was dressed in a tie-dye shirt that read, “This is Bananas! No seriously, it’s just bananas.” He had some fun guitar jams drifting out of his truck while he worked non-stop to help the long line of patrons waiting for their sweet treats. The Verdict: It’s amazingly delicious and creamy! Continue reading
Foolish Waffles began their food truck journey in 2014 and I tried them at the Chestnut Hill Farmer’s Market, way before I started writing this blog. I recall thinking that they had something special, something that every food truck should strive for: a product that had fresh ingredients, creative ideas for specials, and friendly workers who cared about putting out great food. Since they opened, they have won several awards, including a Philadelphia Magazine 2014 Best of Philly award, 2015 Vendy Award, the Uproxx 2017 AND 2018 Best Food Truck in Pennsylvania award, one of the 101 Best Food Trucks in America by The Daily Meal, and the 2018 list of Top Food Trucks by Philadelphia Magazine.
With all of these accolades, does the waffle stand up to the hype? My answer, an emphatic YES. Continue reading
Every Thursday evening, food trucks park at the Weaver’s Way Co-Op store in the Mt. Airy section of Northwest Philadelphia. This week, the Mucho Bueno taco truck and Zsa’s Ice Cream were parked on the corner so we opted to have a dinner date seated alongside the trucks. Mucho Bueno is known for their creative Mexican-BBQ fusion tacos, but my husband and I decided to try the sandwiches instead. There were a lot of choices, including vegetarian and gluten-free options. Sandwiches were large and served with a side of homemade tortilla chips. I was also pleased to find out that Mucho Bueno sources its ingredients locally. Even the tortillas for their tacos and chips are made in Philadelphia. The chicken and pork is smoked on their truck and the components of the sandwiches and tacos are homemade.
