Food Truck Social | August 25, 2012


On Sunday, it rained. On Saturday, it burned. And yet, despite nature being kind of a B, y'all came out to Chicago Avenue between Wood and Wolcott for the second annual Food Truck Social. This city loves food trucks! And food trucks love us back, apparently, because the offerings at this year's Social were as diverse as they were impressive. Big thanks to everyone who attended, and props to all the trucks that participated: Getta PolpettaIce CubedTamale SpaceshipMore CupcakesChi-Town BomberGigi's Bake ShopBeyond BordersThe Sweet RideHaute SausageHummingbird KitchenTwo ItaliansBeaver's DonutsStar FruitBergstein's DeliCaponiesSweet RideTaquero FusionTamale FoodieLatitude 20Haute SausageChi-Town BomberThe Curried Mobile and (not-truck) Kendall College. A few highlights: 

- The Beavers Donuts truck hosted three pop-up chefs on Saturday: Michael Kornick, Brian Jupiter and Carlos Gaytan. All three brought ways to beat the heat: The strawberry lemonade from [node:233735 link=Frontier;]'s pop-up was especially refreshing. (Or was I just extremely dehydrated?)

- On Sunday, [node:148865 link=Caponies Trattoria;] set up a wood-burning pizza oven. Are you thinking what I'm thinking?

- There were major dog-watching opportunities. (Perhaps due the presence of [node:14731127 link=Fido to Go;], a food truck for dogs. Thankfully, this truck was set apart from the food trucks for humans, lest confusion ensue.)

- The longest line on Saturday was for [node:15547266 link=Ice3;], the new popsicle and ice-cream truck with wacky flavors. Close second: [node:14879115 link=Tamalespaceship;]. 

- Spotting Ty Fujimura, the owner of [node:166737 link=Arami;], at the Chitown Bomber food truck seemed like a good omen, so I made a bee-line to check out what was up. The barbecue chicken sandwich with cole slaw and barbecue chips was one of my favorite things I ate at the fest: Bring this truck to the Loop!

- Last but not least, Ommegang beer at a street fair!
