New Food Trucks

What new local food trucks have folks had the chance to try so far this year?

Had the pleasure of trying the new Fugu truck today. Enjoyed my grilled pork belly buns and kimchi bulgogi panini -- the cheesy panini reminds me a bit of Roxy's short rib grilled cheese with kimchi for some nice added flavor, although it didn't add texture, and similarly a bit heavy for lunch. Grilled pork belly buns have good flavor, could stand to put the sauce on both sides of the buns to avoid a touch of dryness. They need to work out the kinks in their ordering system, but the food is definitely ready for food truck prime time.

I also tried the Sweet Tomatoes pizza truck yesterday. I like their thin crust semi-Neapolitan pizza, and they do a good job of matching the quality of their brick and mortar locations. One proviso, which applies to their other locations as well - the pizza has to be eaten immediately. It's so thin, it doesn't seem to retain any heat beyond five seconds. It might help to order your slice extra hot. Slice of the day was (breaded) eggplant ricotta.

BoneDaddy Burgers sold out yesterday very quickly, maybe by 1 pm?
