Trucks on the Beach: Vote Now to Pick the 16th Food Truck

With all the South Beach Wine & Food Festival events scheduled for next year's edition, we are perhaps most excited about Trucks on the Beach. The bash, hosted by Andrew Zimmern and serving as the official closing party, will feature 15 trucks dishing out mobile-made bites on the sands of South Beach. And for $95, it's perhaps one of the best priced events.

The local and national trucks scheduled to appear include the Baketress, Big Gay Ice Cream, Bite Gastrotruck, CheeseMe Mobile, Chipotle, CUBANCUBE, C&S Brisket Bus, Dim Ssam a Gogo, the Fish Box, Latin Burger & Taco, Mangia Mia, Mr. Good Stuff, The Rolling Stove, Stocked N Loaded, and Wicked Witches.

However, New Times loves the democratic process, so we asked the festival organizers if we could include one more truck picked by you, our Short Order readers. That's right, a 16th truck will find a place on the sands if you deem it worthy. We've already selected the finalists, but now it's up to you to pick the winner.

Who will it be?

Mac'n Soul Food, one of Miami's few vegan-friendly trucks severing delicious mac 'n' cheese just as good (if not better) than the real stuff.

Miso Hungry, which brings fresh and spicy Asian dishes wherever it rolls up.

Sugar Rush, arguably Miami's original dessert truck, featuring plenty of sweet treats that make threat of diabetes seem worth the risk.

The MexZican Gourmet, which touts itself as "simply authentic", but we know it's just simply tasty.

Vote now at! There will only be one winner chosen by popular vote. (And for fairness, you can one vote once per day, so no cheating!)
