Last month, we gave four trucks the opportunity to compete to the sixteenth and final truck to be invited to park on the sands of Miami Beach for the South Beach Wine & Food Festival's Trucks on the Beach event hosted by Andrew Zimmern on February 26.
Mac'n Soul Food, Miso Hungry, Sugar Rush, and the MexZican Gourment all hoped you the reader would help them win the popular vote for the chance to feed Zimmern and slew of other TV personalities, chefs, and, of course, the regular crowd. However, only one could make it and Miami's 100 percent vegan food truck Mac'n Soul Food won the big prize.
"It's so awesome!" said co-owner Francesca Lacuesta. "We're excited and proud that we had the support. The support of our followers is why we won, and we can't thank them enough."
So what can we expect Mac'n to serve the crowds on the beach?
"I don't know what I'm going to serve yet, but it's going to be delicious, and people will be surprised that it's vegan."
