The Miami food trucks are invading Sunrise this weekend, with two stops in west Broward. On Saturday, enjoy food trucks while you shop for a new car at Sawgrass Ford and on Monday, enjoy an old-fashioned Independence Day celebration with live music, a parade, kiddie rides and food trucks. Stay for the fireworks display at 9:00 p.m.
As promised, we'll profile different food trucks from time to time. Today, we'll get acquainted with Slow Food Truck. Co-owners Oren Bass and Zachary Schwartz met at Johnson & Wales University's Miami Culinary School. After graduating, they worked together at Trina in Fort Lauderdale for some time before the duo briefly were split. Zachary went on to work at Gotham Steak at the Fontainbleau Hotel in Miami Beach, while Oren went to Canyon Ranch, also in Miami Beach.
They joined forces once again to start up Slow Food Truck, where they serve up such delicious offerings as their short rib n dip sandwich, the Cuban Cowboy (Cuban slow roasted pork with southern slaw, mustard and swiss), and their famous Burgers. Slow Food Truck will be out this weekend at both Sunrise event locations, so be sure to try them and make room for their amazing guava and salted caramel and bacon cupcakes.
