Well, what is a food truck? It is pretty much what it sounds like: a truck (really a RV or trailer) that sells food; it is a restaurant on wheels! I have only ever seen food trucks on TV and honestly, was kind of unsure about the whole thing, but we had some really great food.
We got there right when it started because I heard there would be long lines. The trucks were lined up across the mall parking lot and the lines were already getting long. I checked out the list of trucks that would be there before so we could get an idea of what places we were going to try.

While my mom was in line for the cupcakes I headed over to the Travelling Gourmet to grab their Pork Lettuce Wraps. Ohmygosh. So. Darn. Good. They had a simple truck design, but there concept of organic, fresh, food appealed to me right away. The wraps had tender shredded pork, black beans, corn salsa, and cheese drizzled with an amazing honey lime dressing all piled into a green crisp lettuce leaf with a small side of plantain chips. The flavors were just spot on. In fact, while waiting in a longer line later on I went back to Travelling Gourmet to get another order. They had one of the shorter lines of the evening, but were definitely one of the best trucks there.

As we walked around a little more we noticed a truck that wasn't listed online, but sounded too good to pass up - Melissa's Chicken & Waffles. The line was crazy long for this truck, so mom hopped in line after getting the cupcakes. This was their first time. They had a lot of things on the menu, which all sounded great. All the combination possibilities just led to slow service though. We spent the rest of our time in this line, but chatted it up with some other awesome foodies. We talked about what we had tried, what we liked, the food truck experience in general, and how crazy long the line was.
