I had never heard of the Local 215 truck when we decided to visit the new brewery in town, Love City Brewing, but I was excited to try it. The truck’s website had mostly catering information, so I had no idea what to expect going into it. It appeared that they didn’t have a set food truck menu and used local, seasonal ingredients for events. With a large pig on the logo, I was expecting some pork dishes, but there were vegetarian items to suit my veggie loving friends as well. Between all the members of our group, we tried every one of the menu items they had that day: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
Honey has a shiny new truck parked across the street from the College of Engineering on 12th Street at Norris. I was drawn in by the sign advertising chicken and waffles and vowed to return one day to try them. Now let me tell you… this may be the best fried chicken I have ever had from a food truck! This will definitely quell any fried chicken craving you may have. You may remember this truck when it looked more like the photo below. I never tried the food then, but I had been meaning to check it out.
On my first visit, I was not in the mood for waffles, so I tried the chicken avocado wrap instead. The chicken was breaded with panko breadcrumbs and spices, dressed with a small amount of sweet chili sauce, and wrapped with some perfectly ripe avocado. Battered fries were a great companion to this meal. The chicken was juicy and crispy. I’m definitely having this meal again! Continue reading
The annual Mt. Airy Day community festival took place on Saturday, May 5 on Germantown Avenue at the Cliveden historical park. This site was the exact spot where a Revolutionary War battle occurred. I volunteered to work at this event and also sampled a few of the food trucks that were parked on Germantown Avenue: Philly Fry, El Guaco Loco, and Pound Cake Heaven. All three trucks served up some tasty goodies!
A newcomer in the Temple food truck scene, Taste of India has become a popular addition to the campus. Taste of India opened in Spring 2018 and attracts hungry lunch-goers with its aromas of curries and spices. Lately, there is always a line, which is always a great sign for a food truck.
Rice platters include your choice of chicken or one of many veggies, rice, yogurt, chutney, and a salad. (Be sure to specify if you want the yogurt and what kind of chutney you want).

Back in 2016, I reviewed 4Brothers Loco Flavor food truck in this review. At the time, the truck was pretty new and were probably still ironing out the kinks of their menu. The owner of the truck found my review are requested that I come back and give it another try. I am of course always game to try things again! The review I wrote wasn’t necessarily bad, but I am happy to report that the new menu they have is much better! Even the truck itself looks better with new signage and easy to read choices mapped out for you (click to enlarge photos):
