FFTP: Sonoma Goat Cheese Ravioli, Curbside Chef

Sonoma goat cheese ravioli from Curbside Chef.  This dish consists of one generously sized raviolo, served in a fragrant tomato broth.  There is ample amount of cheese tucked inside.  An added bonus: the basil that garnishes the dish comes from Chef Clarito’s own aquaponic herb garden.

FFTP: Avocado Lime Popsicle

Avocado lime popsicle from Peak Season Pops.  The predominant flavor is the fresh, zesty lime.  The avocado adds a bit of creaminess.  Amazingly enough, it wasn’t too messy when my son (a notoriously poky eater) enjoyed it on a typical, sweltering day.

FFTP: Wild Strawberry Cheesecake

So, I’m going to start abbreviating these posts as FFTP, short for Friday Food Truck Photo. This cheesecake from Fork In The Road was dense but not too heavy.  It was like a cheesecake version of a strawberry milkshake, and was the perfect dessert for two.

The Rachel sandwich from C&S Brisket Bus.  I have been waiting a very long time to try the pastrami from this bus.  It’s not always on the menu, and when it is, it sells out quickly.  When I ordered, they were out of sauerkraut for the more popular Reuben sandwich, but they had coleslaw so they could make a Rachel.  The pastrami is totally worth the wait. And I like that the coleslaw was lightly dressed, and not overly heavy with mayo. I received a ton of comments while walking around with this sandwich, especially from the other food truck owners/workers.

Crispy five spice duck tacos from The Eclectic Kitchen. The tacos were dressed with a pineapple-grapefruit salsa and a pineapple-habanero aioli.  Of course, I’m going to love just about anything that is perfectly fried, and these tacos are no exception.

Key lime pie from Charlie’s Gourmet Pastries.  This is one of their signature dishes, and I can see why.  The pie filling was tart and not too sweet. I just wish there had been more of the graham cracker crust at the bottom.

Mexican roll from Fish Out Of Water.  This dish converted me to a full blown fan of the truck.  Such a beautiful presentation! Looks like a work of art.  There’s only a sliver of jalapeno in each piece, but it packs a wallop. And as a bonus, the server gave me a candy for Tyler.  He loves Hello Kitty, and marshmallows, so it was perfect!

Seasonal summer cupcakes from Yum Yum Cupcake Truck.  In the foreground is the maple bacon, made with bacon from another local food truck, C & S Brisket Bus. The other cupcakes are the Little Miss (strawberry) Remix, Pineapple Princess, and Orange Cream Dream.  On a side note, a friend of mine joked on Facebook that I should come out with a book.  I decided that “Dollop Of Bacon” would be a great title, after using that phrase to describe the cupcake.

Fried chicken plate from Mama’s Fixins.  The meal came with two sides and cornbread, and I chose mac and cheese and collard greens.  I’ve been wanting to try this truck for a long time, but was intimidated by the size of the order.  The chicken was fried perfectly, and I shared it with the tyke.  As it was, the meal kept me full for the whole rest of the day.

Happy First Day of Summer!  It’s fitting that I post a picture of one of my favorite summer (or anytime) foods – ice cream! Today’s phto is of bananas foster sundae from Ice Cream Social Club.  The bananas foster sauce is made to order, and the ice cream melted on contact, but it was a glorious, buttery, caramely concoction.  And I love their tip jar!
