With more than 70 trucks on the South Florida food truck scene, we know how difficult it can be to choose which truck to patronize. Each week, we're featuring a different truck, so you can get to know them. This week, we're highlighting dessert truck Sugar Rush.
No matter what truck you and your friends eat at, chances are you're going to want a sweet treat to end the evening. That's where Sugar Rush comes in. The truck is an extension of south Miami-based sweetness Bake Shop. Owner Stephanie Diaz is so in love with her cupcakes, she has one tattooed on her arm -- that's dedication!
Cupcakes are an economical $1.10 each, and flavors vary daily (standouts include the Irish Car Bomb made with Guinness stout, the Meyer Lemon, and Maple Bacon). Individual-sized crème brûlées ($3.25) and Krispy Kreme bread pudding ($3.50) make great happy endings to a meal.
Sugar Rush also serves milk shakes ($4.50) in vanilla or chocolate, designed to beat the heat, or the Cake n' Shake ($5), a concoction made from your choice of vanilla or chocolate ice cream, blended with milk and your choice of red velvet, vanilla, or chocolate cake, topped with whipped cream and sprinkles.
