I was invited to head out Saturday night and check out the Food Truck Caravan in Scottsdale. They were having a special guest, The FS Taste Truck by Four Seasons. This was very exciting and clearly a hit, but also there were a few of my favorite food trucks there and some others I have not yet tried, so I was more than happy to show up. You can keep up with the food trucks that will be at 5th Ave. & Goldwater every Saturday night and 5th Ave & Marshall every Thursday night by following Food Truck Caravan on Facebook.
Many cities now have food trucks coordinating on Facebook and Twitter to announce their locations and meeting up in groups, which makes it convenient if you are like me and like to try several at once. When I very first started “stalking” food trucks, Hey Joe was my favorite and my best food friend would track it down for an easy lunch stop when able. We were both happy when they started arriving regularly at Food Truck Friday, another favorite weekly food truck event. If you have not gone out to try food trucks in Phoenix, Tucson or the surrounding areas, or even in your own town, I suggest you search these trucks out on Facebook, do a little Google research and see what you can find near you. The people who work the trucks are so nice and so hard working, I appreciate everything they do to bring good food to us, I know it has to be incredibly challenging.
This Past Saturday night at The Food Truck Caravan:
Between the six of us who went, we got food from The Grilled Cheese Truck, Hey Joe!, Udder Delights, Frank Food Truck, and the FSTasteTruck, before we physically could not eat another bite!! All the food was fantastic!! As for the event, we loved it, the weather was perfect, everything was beautifully lit up like an intimate dinner, they had belly dancers and live music. People rode their bikes and brought their dogs and it was just a lot of fun. My kids had a blast, and I wonder if they are unique in the fact that they too enjoy the fun of trying different trucks, but there were other kids there, so maybe not.
So again this was about a 45 mile drive one way from my house, was it worth the drive? Yes, it was so worth the drive. I imagine I will make it again soon as we have guests coming into town. This would be a great place to take a large group of people with various tastes in food.
A special thanks to Lori for the invite!
