Apologies To All Who Didn’t Attend The Food Truck Competition With Me And Thus Had A Miserable Saturday

Anyone who knows me know that I love sitting on my ass in front of a TV for hours on end.  If I didn’t have to get off my couch, I wouldn’t.  I am on record saying that nobody does nothing better than I do.  Facts only on this website.  But when I decide to exert some energy, I make it worth while.  This past weekend was one of those rarities.  But when the Taste of Three Cities Food Truck Competition calls, I come a runnin’.  Let’s go through that again.  FOOD.  TRUCK.  COMPETITION.  It’s a real thing, and it was the real deal.

60 of the best food trucks from Philadelphia, Baltimore, and Washington DC assembled in Philly, turning an awful city into a slightly less awful city for one afternoon.  Any kind of food you can imagine, served atop four stationary wheels.  But I put my differences with the city aside in the spirit of nourishment inside trucks or, as we call them on the streets, “food trucks”.  Here are some highlights:

First on the list was a monster slice of pizza from DC Slices.  It’s not NY/NJ pizza, but it’s about as good as it gets down in DC according to a reliable source.  The fresh basil was a nice touch for anyone who likes nice things.

Oink and Moo BBQ:  It was an obvious first stop for any carnivore.  In order are their Pulled Pork Sliders, Chipotle Chicken Tacos, and Pulled Brisket Sliders.  I have no idea what that sauce was on the tacos, but it made the dish.  By far the best thing I ate all day.  And I’m not much of a coleslaw guy but Oink and Moo nailed it in every way.

These are the Steak N’ Bake fries from Philly Fry.  Waffle fries, succulent shaved steak, melted American cheese, crispy bacon.  I know what you’re thinking.  It can’t be done.  Philly Fry has gone where no man has gone before.  And yes, they were outstanding.

I don’t know what to tell you people.  As long as I’m around, I’m gonna be eating delicious foods and telling my slightly above average social network following about it.  I can’t bring everyone along for the ride with me, but I welcome anyone to has a refined palette to come along for the ride.  I really am sorry everyone who didn’t go had a miserable Saturday.  Everyone should do more fun things.
