You can get your tasty treats in "La Souwesera" once again tonight from 5:30 to 9
at SW 65th Avenue and Bird Road AKA Miami Street Food Court. You will see a vacant lot, illuminated
only by the food trucks. Tonight, Nacho Mama's Grill from Key Largo will sling their Mexican fare. According to Burger Beast.com, Jefe's Original Fish Taco & Burgers will also be there, as well as Grillmaster Café, which usually rolls in Broward.
Tuesday night, food truck fans gathered in the dark, dirt lot to get their grub from Latin Burger and Taco Truck, La Camaronera's Fish Box, and Sakaya Kitchen's Dim Ssam. Food trucks are becoming more common in Southwest Miami, and some, like Latin House Grill, El Paisa, Caza Crepes, and Yellow Submarine, make it their primary turf. However, other food trucks, like the ones from Tuesday night, are not usually spotted at night in "La Souwesera", so fans took advantage.
More after the jump...
The Tuesday trucks hope to return to the lot within the next few
weeks. It seemed like a successful night. By the end of the evening,
the trucks were sold out of several items, including the Burger Beast
and avocadolicious sauce at Latin Burger and the short ribs at Dim
Ssam. I tried an amazing soft shell blue crab bun with spicy mayo and
cucumbers from Dim Ssam. Waits were long, but no one seemed to mind.
It was also an opportunity for food truck people to mingle and check
each other out. Of course, Burger Beast was there, along with folks from
food truck company Food Cart USA and the upcoming Sugar Rush truck.
Even Miami Commissioner Francis Suarez was there. Perhaps food trucks
will become so popular with commissioners that they will consider
updating our mobile concession laws.
It looks like food trucks are testing the waters of regular gatherings in "La Souwesera." Hope it's true!
Update: According to the Miami Street Food Court Facebook page, trucks will gather on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday nights.
