While it's good to have food trucks in different locations around town, we like this idea of having them in one spot once a week, especially when that spot is close to home. More than anything it's a chance to try trucks we haven't come about.
It wasn't too long ago that food trucks started gathering on Bird Road and 65th Street in what's now known as the Miami Street Food Court. Now trucks will also be congregating on Biscayne and 109th Street at what's being called the Biscayne Triangle Truck Round-Up (BTTR).
The plan is to have a gathering every Tuesday night and rotate the trucks so people have different choices each week, Jack Garabedian, owner of Jefe's Original Fish Taco & Burger, told Short Order.
On the line-up for tonight are: Latin House Grill, Nacho Bizness, Nacho Mama's Mexican Grill, the new Miso Hungry, CheeseMe Mobile, Jefe's, Feverish Ice Cream, and Dolci Peccati Gelato (also a relative newcomer).
The gathering starts at 5:30 p.m. If you go, bundle up. It's going to get cold out there.
