Food Truck Sound-Off

jerseygirldawn | Apr 23, 2010 03:45 PM

OK lately my friend and I have become obsessed with these food trucks. We follow them on Twitter and try and catch them whenever they are in the area. I would love to hear peoples take on which is their favorite and what dishes they recommend. It would certainly save us from literally spinning our wheels!

Kogi - I went there one time. I tried the sliders, short rib burrito and short rib tacos. They were all very flavorful. I had never tasted korean style tacos before. It was refreshingly different for me. My favorite of what I ordered was the sliders while my husband preferred the burrito.

Komodo - It was right after eating at Kogi and I wanted to compare. Unfortunatly they had run out of their truffle fries and many of their dishes. I managed to snag the very last Komodo taco. It was a taco with avocado on it. It was different than the Kogi. The Kogi had more of a krout taste while this was a bit sweeter. It was good. I dont think I would go out of my way for it though.

Buttermilk - I tried their french toast sticks and a meaty biscuit sandwich. I usually dont like french toast but I was recommended them. They were suprisingly good. They tasted more like a churro. The biscuit sandwich would have been better is I had gone with the regular bacon. Instead he recommended this other type meat which he said was "meatier". it basically was bits of fat. I'm not into cancadian bacon cause its too fatty and thats like what this was. I still ate it. lol. I added the garlic rosemary hashbrowns. they were different tasting. Strong but still good. I should have asked for salt. I would go back but next time I'd like to try something else.

World Fare - This was the most expensive truck we've encountered. Apparently th chef says she will be on the food network soon. I can see why. Though expensive, it was good. They serve "bunnies" which are little hollowed out breads with meat inside. We tried the curry, short rib and chicken. I preferred the short rib. We ordered the mac and cheese balls. I actually liked the fries that came with the burger best. The burger was juicy and good and the fries thin and well seasoned. The desserts were cherry chocolate molten cake and butterscotch bread pudding. My husband loved the butterscotch bread pudding while I wasnt stuck on either. They were still good but nothing great. If I were to pass by it again I would at in it. I just wouldnt go too far to seek it out.

Fry - This one was my favorite. I tried the chicken and cheese over sweet potatoe fries and the steak and peppers over fries. They were both delicious! I would definatly drive for this truck. It was so good! They also were kind enough to bring out buckets for customers to sit..

Cool Haus - this is the ice cream sandwich truck. It was during lent and I had given up cookies so I sat this one out. My husband LOVED it. I definatly want to try it for myself.

I have tried searching the boards for truck recs and couldnt find them. So I was hoping to get opinions. What are your favorite trucks? What would you recommend I order?
