Through the fine efforts of Megan Mars from the Boston Food Truck Blog, she has scheduled a food truck lunch Meetup for 11:30 tomorrow at Dewey Sq on the Greenway. Come join us, the more the merrier! RSVP here at Meetup. You also have the Dewey Sq Farmers Markeet going on also, so it’s a lil bit of food heaven there.
No changes from the city of Boston on food trucks. No sign of the Greenway adding the North End for a truck, which was on their original schedule. Walden Meat Co. was supposed to be a vendor there, but there is no inspection from Boston on such a truck. The city will likely have changes for July 1, as it is a quarterly time frame where you can make changes easier.
If you hadn’t heard, beer and wine is now available at the South End Open Market. It wouldn’t surprise to see SoWa try to work the same thing out to stay competitive. Have you been to either or both locations? What do you think? Use the comments below to weigh in.
Wooed by the Food food truck festival is on June 11th in Whitinsville, with 24 food trucks. The event is at 60 Main St. Whitin Park Playground. Get more info on their Facebook page.
So some of you know that while I generally work in Boston, Cape Cod is home base for me. For people coming down, their is a growing food truck scene here. I visited a small cluster out on Rt 6 in Wellfleet today. You’ll find Joey’s Kangury, Kung Fu Dumplings (restaurant based from P-town) and the Shuck Food Truck. Shuck wasn’t open today, but the other 2 were.
Briefly considering a lunch of tacos and dumplings, I realized, wait… I can come back here easy enough. So on to Kung Fu Dumplings for Asian Spice wings and pork dumplings. I got small orders of each. The wings had a nice crispy exterior and moist chicken inside. At first bite I was thinking, ok I get some spice but….. ahhhhhh! At the back end is where you get some nice heat from these. And another fine effort on the dumplings, small, moist (oh no, THAT word!) bites of properly seasoned ground pork in each dumpling. By the way, that was not the whole order, they were in separate containers with around 7 of each item.
I had a nice conversation with Joey afterwards about the food truck scene on the Cape and where there are trucks out there. Hopefully, we can to collaborate and talk more about this, and get some love for the scattered trucks around Cape Cod. Maybe add that as part of the schedule here for the summer months anyway.
