New England Food Truck Festival

How I almost became a Food Truck Groupie.

Last Saturday we ate our weight in food truck food at the New England Food Truck Fest on the Charles River. It truly was a fat kid moment. And I kind of wish we could do it again...every day.

First of all, I would like to thank the (garden police) Park Rangers for not letting us park in any of the public lots along the Charles. Parking my brand new car behind a construction site in Lower Allston made me only slightly paranoid but the 1 mile walk to and from the festival was probably a good thing in retrospect, due to our massive caloric intake.

Grilled cheeses all over my face

We've been diehard Roxy's Grilled Cheese fans far before Food Channel Network's The Great Food Truck Race, and naturally gravitated to them.

Compliments uses fresh, local ingredients

Trying something new, the following trucks also blew our minds.

Basically the reason we went to Food Truck Fest

With enough tickets left to buy three out of the four available whoopie pies, The Whoo(pie) Wagon presented the hardest decision of the day by far. 

Decision made. And they're all mine

If one of these caravans of deliciousness parks in your backyard, please go. I thoroughly enjoyed stuffing my face and going back for fifths and sixths. However, you may go into withdrawals like I did and demand whoopie pies and grilled cheeses for breakfast, lunch, and dinner for the next week or so.

Oh and we made a cameo in the Food Truck Fest recap video. See some sexy people walking around at mark 2:20.
