On Sunday night, my friend Bryan and I went to the second Orlando Food Truck Bazaar presented by The Daily City. We went to the first bazaar, but we didn’t get to try too many trucks as the lines were extremely long, and it was extremely crowded. It was a much better experience this time. The event took place at the Fashion Square Mall parking lot so there was a lot more room, and there were more trucks making the lines more evenly distributed.
We started off in line at the Pupuseria Flores truck and got two pupusas, which are stuff tortillas. We got one with cheese and jalapeño and one stuffed with pork and cheese. Bryan and I agreed that this would be a great late night snack after the bars. I think the tortillas just needed a little more salt and they would have been perfect.
The couple next to us in line had gotten the Luther Vandross burger from Treehouse Truck. It is a bacon cheeseburger between two glazed donuts. Upon biting into it, a pretty good amount of grease dripped down the man’s white shirt. The burger looked disgustingly delicious. He seemed to enjoy it.
Bryan’s brother, who was also there, brought us an order of the deep fried cheese grits from the Big Wheel Provisions truck. The cheese grits were on par with 4Rivers BUT DEEP FRIED. They were the perfect creamy texture, and the batter provided an excellent crunch.
Our wandering taste buds then took us to CK Jerk Shack for some Jamaican. The smoked jerk pork was my favorite dish of the evening. It was served on coconut rice with a sweet guava barbeque sauce on top. The pork was juicy and moist.
Our final destination for the evening was The Crooked Spoon where we got the Voodoo dog and whoopie pies. The Voodoo dog is a hot dog topped with crawfish gumbo. It was slightly spicy with big chunks of crawfish. It was surf and turf in hot dog form. The whoopie pie was chocolate with lime frosting in the middle. It was the perfect dessert to top it all off!
It looks like The Daily City is already planning for their next bazaar. I still need to try the Korean BBQ truck, and I was pretty intrigued by the chicken and waffles truck.
