Wynwood Food Truckers Meet Up In Pictures
Saturday evening brought the first Wynwood Food Truckers Meet Up. It was organized by Richard Hales, chef/owner of Sakaya Kitchen and the Dim Ssäm a gogo truck. Some two dozen gastrowheelers were on hand, including many last seen two evenings earlier at the Biscayne Triangle Truck Court and Truckers Meeting Round Up (I'm still a bit fuzzy on the names of these get-togethers). What follows are some photos and salient observations about Saturday's saline event.
Worst Noise Polluter: Divan Bakery & Coffee
The noisiest generator for the smallest stand. Too noisy, really.
Best Dish Of The Night: Gingered Brussels Sprouts at Dim Ssäm a gogo
Big portion, delicious flavors, a steal at $4
Somewhere, a lasagna sits in a pinchos container
Worst Dish Of The Night: Grill Master Cafe's Steak Pinchos
Fatty, grisly, over-seasoned meat with honey mustard sauce and potato sticks that apparently fell into the Cuisinart.
Best Innovation Of Wynwood Truckers Meet Up: Picnic Tables
Sadly, nobody thought to save a seat for Mimi Sheraton.
Best Taco Of The Night: Jefe's Original Fish Taco & Burger
I'm a fan of the double-tortilla effect; this is a fantastic fish sandwich.
Best Sandwich Of The Night: Slow Food Truck's Ono
And I'm not just saying that to make nice. Pulled, slow-cooked pork, ham, pineapple, crispy shallots. A glorious mess. $7.
Least Environmentally Friendly Containers: Caza Crepes
Thick, black plastic box that weighed twice as much as the too-chewy crepe. Then they tried to give us a thick plastic lid, too.
Not The Best Of Anything In Particular, But A Tasty Taco Trio: The MexZican Gourmet Food Truck
Cochinita pibil taco; chicken with puebla sauce taco; and Legacy taco with brisket, chorizo, & chicharron.
