A couple of my previous experiences with "roach coaches" made me never want to eat from one again (picture a dead black fly in your fried rice after you've eaten most of it, and what looks like a pubic hair under your taco. yeah. for reals), but I was convinced by my fud buddy Paul, who went last Friday, and sucked in by the extensive and varied menus...
Treatbot - ICE CREAM!!!
Sam's Chowdermobile - They had LOBSTER Rolls!!!
Curry Up Now - Indian
No Way Jose - Mexican
MoBowl - Various savories in a bowl
Le Bon - Vietnamese & French cuisine
Fairycakes - Cupcakes, what else?
Bigg Shrimp'n - Shrimp Po Boys
Eat on Monday - I think this was tacos???
Taqueria Angelicas - More Mexican
The Chairman - Steamed & Baked Buns
Arabian Bites - Middle Eastern
Jo on the Go - Coffee
Dough Truck - OK, DOUGHNUT BURGERS. YES!!!
Farmers Market Express - Raw fruits & veggies...This wasn't a very popular truck, snort!
They set out these upside down buckets to sit on...
I bet you can guess what I ate!? Really for true, an American cheese stuffed bacon burger on a glazed DONUT!!! eeeeeek!!! (Those are "loaded" tater tots...cheese, sour cream, BACON, and green onion!)
I named it the Sugar Bomb Burger!
While it initially promised gustatory delight, by the time I got to the last few bites, I had to ditch the donut and finish up only the meat. Maybe it was too much after the breakfast choco old fashioned donut this morning, or it could have been washing it down with classic coke. The tots ya think?!
Here's Paul enjoying his Gobble Gobble Burger. (Turkey burger stuffed with provolone, arugula, finished off with garlic aioli.)
Paul also got three steamed buns from The Chairman (kinda like a Chinese taco)...pork belly with daikon (japanese pickle), Chinese five spice blend on pork and cole slaw, and braised beef with marinated carrots.
I could only take a bite of each... groan...
We cruised the rest of the market, lo and behold, found ourselves in front of the FairyCakes truck
You bet I found a bit of space in my dessert stomach!!! Again, an extensive menu to choose from... Paul had a California Dreamin' which was a choco cupcake with a syrup filled center, cream cheese frosting, and graham sprinkles. I had the Vanilla Salty Caramel, which had a caramel syrup center, cream cheese frosting, salt, and I added some HAPPINESS sugar sprinkles. (Again with the sugar!!!)
Me & my full belly were pretty HAPPY by that point : .D
I have to point out the irony that the street fud market is RIGHT.ACROSS.THE.STREET from where I see my trainer!!! (Today as a matter of fact!)
A little spendy, but a great adventure!
Protein shakes tomorrow, but...
Lobster rolls next week!!! heh.
