in Food Truck, Orlando, Street food

I‘ve read, watched on TV and heard a lot about food trucks serving local street foods famous in places such as New York City, Los Angeles etc, but never had the opportunity to sample (not even during our recent vacation in New York City). Until yesterday, thanks to Orlando’s first ever food truck bazaar, there were mobs of people in line waiting to sample several food truck goodies. Photos action speaks louder than words, so here we go. Of course, you can expect some excerpts. Being a chatterbox, I can’t help it 😉

Indoor: Exhibitions of various arts, accessories etc.

Live music for entertainment!

Outdoor: Several arts, accessories, plants, etc on sale.

Food trucks galore!

Yum Yum were out of cupcakes so fast! Not happy! I was in line for more than 30 minutes.

Growing crowds! I think the organizers were not expecting such huge turn up. Social media surely rocks! Here’s a little video to show you the grandeur of this event:

Rule of thumb: Always follow event organizer’s tweets/facebook to be informed of contest or sweepstakes. I won $20 and Orlando Live bumper sticker just by locating Peter Murphy and mentioning “Keep Orlando Awesome”! He was also offering tickets to Florida Film Festival, but I denied since I am already on-board and would be covering the festival as media 🙂

Being a food blogger is sometimes too risky. I spent way too much time covering the event instead of stuffing my face 😀 We could only sample fish tacos from Winter Park Fish & Co. Most of the food trucks were either out of foods or had long lines!

Those fish tacos were too cheesy and not at all tasty. Come on Fish Co, you could’ve done better than this!

Anyways, overall this event was more than successful and we can’t wait to attend the next food truck bazaar. Hopefully with more delicious foods and lesser wait time 😉

A huge kudos goes to Mark for organizing a successful, first time ever Orlando Food Truck Bazaar! What an exhilarating event it was yesterday. Thanks Mark, you made City Beautiful proud 🙂

Have you sampled goodies from food trucks before? Any favorites?

Street food is a lot popular in Kerala where I was born and lived for more than 20+ years 😀 you get some kind of special taste from such stores that you will not get anywhere else 😉

I don’t feel good going to such shops here in Bangalore for some reason .. I had stomach ache when I tried some chicken kebab once ..

but I try to have some whenever I go to Kerala 😀 I took my wife too last time when I went there ….

Aahh! You are from Kerala?!? I’ve always wanted to visit! Kerala is so beautiful 🙂 There is nothing better than having street foods that we’ve grown up eating and loving.

That looks like it was a lot of fun. Too bad you did not get to sample more. May next time.
