Many major cites have a Food Truck Rally, where a pack of ethnic kitchens on wheels circle, wagon train-style, in a public place at a designated day and time. There is no entry fee, the food is delicious and the price is beyond reasonable.
This was today’s Food Truck Rally in Brooklyn’s Grand Army Plaza at Prospect Park, not half a mile from my apartment. It was the first rally of the season and seventeen food trucks participated: CoolHaus, Eddie’s Pizza Truck, Kelvin Natural Slush Co., Kimchi Taco, Milk Truck, Red Hook Lobster Truck, Rickshaw Dumpling Truck, Vanleeuwen Ice Cream, Big D’s Grub, Cupcake Crew, Frites n Meats, Gorilla Cheese, Mexicue, Pera Turkish Tacos, Valducci’s Original Pizza, and Wafels & Dinges.
From what I could see, the lines were longest at Kelvin Natural Slush Co., VanLeeuwen Ice Cream and CoolHaus (ice cream.) The air temperature was hot. But for food, Kimchi Taco had the longest line by far, although every truck had great food. I wish I could have tried it all. The Prospect Park Food Truck Rally will take place on the third Sunday of every month through October. Today was special because the cherry blossoms are in bloom. Here are my photos. Enjoy!
