Food Truck Frenzy...No More?...

Kitchen Queen | May 5, 2011 11:17 PM

I was, this evening, among 15 or so trucks and not a one seemed appealing. They showed up for the Thurs Farmer's Market/Cinco de Mayo in Newhall. I had the Gringowood salad bowl from Gringo's Tacos. For $5 it was ok. I ordered an ice coffee from Maui Wowi(?) for 3.50$ -it tasted like MUD! Shrimp Pimp looked interesting but, I didn't feel like forking over 9 bucks esp. when I have bigger and better in my freezer at home.

Baby's BadAss Burgers has a nice looking pink truck but, no one was standing in line. Even King Kone was lineless. So, has the infatuation worn off? Is this phenom getting out of hand as quoted by Josh Hiller from RoadStoves? Or, am I just missing the good ones. I do like the Dosa Truck...

Well, one more chance to try a few...

But, I'm really not impressed.

What say you?
Really...I am interested in your opinion.
