Snowday Food Truck

This morning I got an email from my Foodie alias at work kindly informing me that the Snowday Food Truck would be perched on 22nd and 5th, offering grilled cheese on maple syrup french toast, maple pulled pork sliders, maple bacon popcorn, and maple apple cider. You guys, I tried all four of these Maple Wonders and it was just a delight. My absolute favorite was the grilled cheese on maple syrup french toast. It was a simple grilled cheese made with, I want to say, gruyere cheese with maple syrup drizzled on top, which was a surprisingly delicious combination. The maple pork slider was also fantastic, with the maple flavor absolutely not overpowering that bbq pulled pork flavor we all know and love. It only enhanced the flavor of the meat, and was served with red cabbage slaw on a brioche bun. Personally, I'm not a huge fan of brioche buns normally because it throws off the filling-to-bun ratio, but they did a fairly good job of compensating with the pork and slaw filling. The maple bacon popcorn was a good snack to have while we waited in the 40 minute (yet TOTALLY worth it) line, but I honestly prefer my popcorn strictly salty, so that just comes down to personal preference. With the syrup on it, it was of course sticky, and after a while it got kind of soggy, but really what else did I expect? The maple apple cider, I drank along with my grilled cheese. It had the same amount of sweetness as a regular cup of cider, and it's surprising how well maple and apple flavors compliment each other. All around, it was a great way to celebrate #NationalMapleSyrupDay (yes, that's a thing) and I'd do it again in a heartbeat (especially since it was all free).

Basically, if you see the Snowday Food Truck, run to them. They are the nicest people, and value high quality recipes and preparations. Be sure and follow @SnowdayTruck on Twitter to stalk them and see when they'll be in your district.
