If the Beatles were still around, we bet they'd be singing "I'm Back in the BTTR," instead of that other song because the Biscayne Triangle Truck Roundup is tonight, and it's featuring more than 25 food trucks, live music, free parking and porta-potties!
From 5:30 to 10 p.m., the trucks will line up on NE 127th Street, just west of Biscayne Boulevard (next to Johnson & Wales University's North Miami Campus). Last time Short Order was there, there was a great hipster energy to this round-up. A band was playing reggae, while people were camped out on the large lawn enjoying their tacos and burgers, many with dogs and friends in tow.
Mixed in with established favorite trucks will be some newcomers offering new taste treats. Sugar Yummy Mama will be offering her cake balls, in flavors like Yummy Wuava, Velveteen, Coconut Samba and Berry Berry Yummy. At $2 each, you can afford to try several.
Purple People Eatery just debuted this weekend. Vegetarians will especially like this truck's several non-meat offerings including Mac 'n' Jack, a thin crusted broccoli mac 'n' cheese with jack, colby, sharp cheddar and gouda.
If all this food truck mania is getting to your waistline, Catered Bliss offers a salmon burger, made with fresh salmon, onions and a lemon caper sauce on a multi-grain bun ($5.29).
