|Phoenixville, Pennsylvania held their semi-annual Phoenixville Food Truck Festival on Saturday, November 4 from 12:00 P.M. to 6:00 P.M. Twenty-four trucks were invited to sell their food with some craft and jewelry vendors. Bands were located down main street providing great music which was jazz, rock and oldies.If you are anything like me and watch the Food Network’s Great American Food Truck Race, you know this event screams foodie paradise! Food Trucks provide delicious, elevated foods at a reasonable price.When I found out it was happening less than 15 minutes from where we live, I called my sister-in-law, grabbed my husband and headed out on an empty stomach to see what this was all about.The variety of food was good. Caribbean jerk chicken, curry chicken, fish sandwiches and fish tacos, BBQ pork sliders with co slaw, Wisconsin fried cheese curds with a sriracha remoulade dipping sauce, Korean barbeque tacos, chicken skewers, Kimchi fried rice balls, gourmet meatball sliders with three sauces, gourmet macaroni and cheese, decadent deserts and craft beers. The standard hamburgers, fries, funnel cakes were there for those less adventurous.|
We started at one end of the street and walked the entire length before trying anything.
|This guy was giving out free samples of the jerk chicken and fish tacos which we sampled. At the end of the day my sister-in-law went back and bought the fish tacos to take with her to a band competition.|
Well, what do you expect, THEY’RE FOOD TRUCKS!!!
and the Ka Chi Truck selling the Kimchi fried rice balls were my favorite things tasted.
|Cheeseburger macaroni and cheese with hamburger, onions and ketchup.|
Because our time was limited I don’t feel like I sampled as many things as I would have liked. We did share everything we bought and only took bites but with only two hours our eyes were much bigger than our stomachs. In April when the next Food Truck Festival comes around I will be better prepared with comfortable shoes, lose fitting clothing, plenty of dollar bills and hours to spend indulging myself. All in all it was a great afternoon and I’m sure a big success for the town of Phoenixville!
