OUR FAVORITE DISHES SO FAR ...

Here are some of the dishes we tried and loved at the first brunch food truck rally of the season — and a few reasons we can’t wait for what’s to come. Note that the vendors and dishes will vary from event to event, but this will give you an idea of some of the savory options.

LOBSTER POUTINE FRIES 

I tried the lobster poutine fries from Harvest Mobile Cuisine — and all I can say is I should have gotten another order.

The dish features crisp harvest fries topped with local cheese curds, fresh Maine lobster and lobster bisque. This was one of the top recommended orders at the event.

WICKED FRENCH TOAST

Another dish I tasted was The Wicked ‘Wich’s French toast. The fluffy bread (fresh from Evan’s Bakery) featured just the right amount of crunch and included a side of syrup for a sweet finish.

“We got to do all our fun sandwich ideas for brunch, including a French toast sandwich with bacon, Nutella and banana,” said Katie Marks, owner of The Wicked ‘Wich food truck.

Greek Street Food Truck's Baklava (Alex Perry)

BAKLAVA

The last bite I tried was literally that — Greek Street Food Truck’s baklava, which delivered a flaky, crunchy, sweet end to my brunch adventure.
