food trucks

Filed under:, , , , — cwage @ 6:32 pm

Okay, here's the thing. Food from a truck is awesome. It's great when you can grab some awesome tamales from some grandmother and her kids in a truck when you're in a hurry and running across town, or grabbing an awesome hot dog when you're late for a meeting downtown. It's good food and it's convenient and it's cheap.

The trendiness of it kills it for me. This is not a "i am too school for school" anti-trend thing. It's a convenience thing. Standing in a massive line in the hot sun in 93F heat is not convenient -- it's masochistic. While my coworkers baked in the sun to get cheesesteaks, I drove to Kroger and got stuff to make awesome turkey subs and was on my way back before the line had moved.

I'm not hatin'.. just sayin. Call me when the food trucks have reached market saturation and you can get food from them quickly. I'll be at Kroger.

Negative Nelly here, over and out.

    I have to wait for the festival to have street food. "Deep Fried Alligator on a stick?" Hell's yes. Maybe if you went at time where there is a lull, if there is such a thing.

    My rule is that I already have to be wherever the food truck is located -- I'm not driving to find an elusive food truck. We survived thousands of years as a culture to use forks instead of sticks and a few more to stop having to hunt around for food. That's what Taco Bell is for.

    Cmon Sentimental Sally.  Live a little.  Food Trucks are the new way of life.  No one likes to wait in line for food, especially when it's hot.  But it's different.  It's new.  And it's good and cheap.  That what people want.  ideas that are far away from the everyday norm.  So stop going to the same deli, the same diner, ect, and try a food truck.  Who knows, maybe the food will be worth the wait.

    If
    you would like to buy MDAI on the web there are a few things to watch out for
    in order to make certain you get the real deal. There are several vendors
    selling products marketed as MDAI but in fact are not and may possibly even be
    banned substances. Real MDAI is expensive to acquire wholesale and so will be a
    bit far more pricey to purchase smaller amounts - watch out for low cost MDAI.
    Also the colour of the MDAI you acquire need to be white if it is of a high
    purity.
