Rollin on Grub
Street food has come a long way from the dirty-water hot dogs and greasy tacos you used to gobble down outside of clubs at 2 a.m. These days, gourmet food trucks rule the streets, rolling en masse to distribute custom-built grub to intrepid foodies. Now there are trucks specializing in everything from Asian sticky buns to bomb-ass, stoner-style grilled cheese sandwiches. And Wednesday, folks up in the PBC can get a taste of this legitimately cool trend when the Gourmet Truck Expo comes to town.
Today from 6 to 10:30 p.m., the 20-truck gathering will roll into the Boomers! in Boca Raton (3100 Airport Road). Food-truck fans in the know will enjoy GTE because it features a whole host of never-before-tasted mobile kitchens, wrangled and parked in Palm Beach County for the first time. And for those who have never eaten from a food truck before, GTE offers an ideal launching point into your new obsession. Thanks to a wide range of options, you can munch on Asian grub from the likes of Red Miso, scarf pizza and Italian food from Caza Paninis and 4 Alarm Pizza, and get a taste of ethical streetside fine dining courtesy of Curbside Gourmet and the Slow Food Truck. And even if you are looking for a good ol hot dog, new truck Dog Eat Dog has that covered too. All this plus live music, dancing, and a host of discounts inside Boomers! make GTE the perfect pit stop for a night of fun. Admission is free. Visit gourmettruckexpo.com.
