Food Truck Fever
Truth be told, I love Mister Softee. The sight of that treats truck makes me swoon but it’s been a long time since ice cream trucks were the only game in town. These days you can find just about any type of cuisine roaming the streets. The New York Food Association’s Ben Goldberg gave me some tips on these yummy roving food experts. Follow them on social media to see where they’ll be on any given day. You can even book a truck for your next event.
Luke’s Lobsters While they have several New York City locations, the Luke’s truck is coming to a corner near you with freshly fished seafood. It’s the perfect weather for a cool lobster roll to beat the heat. Plan your picnics in the park and elevate your experience. Their goal is to help us make healthy decisions about what we eat, by knowing where it comes from and how it’s been harvested. Luke’s is able to trace every pound of seafood they serve back to the harbor where it was sustainably caught in order to support fishermen they know and trust.
Phil’s Steaks If you don’t want to take the train to Philadelphia for an authentic steak sandwich, visit the Phil’s Steaks truck in order to get your fix. They ship their ingredients in directly from Philly in order to give you the perfect steak. The secret is in that fresh Philly roll from the home of steaks. I like to order mine with provolone and fried onions.
Stuf’d Stuf’d offers savory and sweet stuffed french toast options filled with homemade sauces. They frequent festivals but are based in New York City and the Tri-state area. The PB+J is stuffed with peanut butter, raspberry jam and banana slices crusted with graham crackers and maple dulce de leche. For a savory treat try Momma’s Meatballs with turkey meatballs, smoked mozzarella and maple marinara. Try to share with a friend so you can sample one of each!
