FFTP: Gumbo, Voodo Kitchen

Chicken and sausage gumbo from Voodoo Kitchen.  The gumbo was packed with chunks of andouille and chicken, along with the requisite holy trinity vegetables.  I am jealous of the darkness of the roux – mine never gets that rich.  And as a bonus, the truck also sold these stunning mardi gras themed cake balls, made by a local company.  The flavors were king cake (purple), white chocolate (gold), and red velvet (green).

FFTP: Chicken Tostadas, Mi Casita

Chicken tostadas from Mi Casita.  This dish consisted of two crisp tortillas, generously heaped with guacamole, seasoned chicken, salsa, and sour cream – great flavors all around.  I love when I can order something from a food truck that is delicious, filling, and doesn’t sit heavily in my stomach.

FFTP: Honey Brie Sandwich, The Big Cheese

The Honey Brie from The Big Cheese. I love both those foods, so this sandwich was a slam dunk for me.  It also contained a layer of arugula and a layer of sliced pears.  Once in a while, it’s nice to have a food truck dish that doesn’t leave me feeling totally stuffed to the max.

FFTP: Asian Chicken and Waffles, Sushi And Seoul On The Roll

Asian chicken and waffles from Sushi And Seoul On The Roll.  This truck is the former Fish Out Of Water, which has rebranded itself as a sushi and Korean fusion truck.  The waffle was light.  The marinated chicken was crispy on the outside and tender on the inside.  The dish came with the requisite syrup and an intriguing gochujang butter.

FFTP: Fall Cupcakes, Yum Yum Cupcake

Fall cupcakes from the Yum Yum Cupcake truck.  From front to back: carrot spice, pumpkin gingy, pink lemonade, and vanilla.  Okay, the vanilla is available year-round.  But my son loves the pretty blue icing.  Other current seasonal flavors are hootenanny harvest apple and drunken pumpkin.

FFTP: Bagel With Lox, Pastrami Project

Friday Food Truck Photo: lox on a bagel from Pastrami Project.  The bagel had a generous amount of house-cured lox, a shmear of cream cheese, and (by request) capers.  I thought there could have been a few more capers – their saltiness balanced out the richness of the sandwich.

FFTP: Raspberry Ice Cream Sandwich, Midnight Sun Ice Cream

Raspberry ice cream on a chocolate cookie sandwich, from Midnight Sun Ice Cream.  This is a fairly new truck, and their frozen treats are generously sized, and delicious.  The ice cream had a fresh raspberry flavor, and the cookie sandwich was soft and slightly chewy, making it easy to bite through.

FFTP: Luther Burger, Treehouse Truck

Luther burger from Treehouse Truck.  This sandwich is not for the faint of heart.  It’s a bacon cheeseburger where instead of a bun, there are grilled cheese Krispy Kreme donuts.  On top and bottom.  There are some locals who swear by this burger.  Personally, I’m not sure I could eat all this richness in one sitting.

FFTP: Buffalo Chicken and Waffle, Melissa’s Chicken and Waffles

Buffalo chicken and waffle from Melissa’s Chicken and Waffles.  I loved the hint of rosemary in the seasoning on the chicken.  The waffle itself was light and didn’t overwhelm the chicken.  There was a smattering of lettuce, celery, and tomato that helped keep the waffle from getting soggy, as well as provided a modicum of roughage.

FFTP: Pancit, Over Rice Truck

Pancit from OverRice Food Truck.  These noodles are served as a side, but they’re so good they deserve their own post.  The dish is well seasoned with onion and garlic, and has a peppery flavor that imparts a slow burn.
