On the evening of Sunday July 24th from 6pm-10pm, TheDailyCity.com put on the first ever Avalon Park Food Truck Bazaar. The food trucks present included Mama’s Fixins Soul Food, Winter Park Seafood Co., C&S; Brisket Bus, The Travelling Gourmet, Tastebuds, Sunset Italian Ice, Yum Yum Cupcake Truck, Batter Bowl Truck, The Crepe Company cart, Pupuseria, Firehouse BBQ, Big Wheel Provisions, Treehouse Truck, Korean BBQ Taco Box (2), The Crooked Spoon, Island BBQ Jerk Chicken Truck, and Jeremiah’s Italian Ice cart. Melissa’s Chicken and Waffles truck was out of commission that evening but will be up and running later.

Under the hot Florida sun, the trucks were lined up into two rows one on each side of the big park and stage near downtown Avalon Park by the Publix. I was at the event selling food truck apparel with my long time friend Michael Cho, co-owner of Impress Ink Tees screen printing and apparel shop (located on Goldenrod road near Colonial Dr). It was our first time selling shirts and I think it was pretty successful. The food truck shirts had designs ranging from “Truck Eat Sleep” to “Stay Hungry with a food truck made of foods” and a I heart (food truck) food truck”. We had quite a few sales and I also had a great time meeting a few readers of this very blog. It was so fun meeting and talking to people who have read my posts over the years and followed me on twitter and facebook. I was pleasantly surprised that some people were even at the Avalon Park Food Truck Bazaar because they heard it from my twitter account! The next time we will be out with the food truck shirts to be sold in person is at the Oviedo Mall Food Truck Bazaar on Sunday August 24th, so if you have a chance come by and say hello!

Overall, it was a great event and many of the vendors sold out of food. C&S; Brisket Bus for one sold out of over 350 lbs of meat alone in 4 hours. The good folks over at The Crooked Spoon said that this was their busiest night EVER! I am sure these bazaars will continue to be a success and hope that the food truck scene will keep on truckin! Ride on!

Coconut water, Ginger beer, a boat of bbq pork, and a boat of bbq chicken – the pork and chicken were some of the best I  have ever had. The smoky bbq flavor and island sauces went perfectly together in this dish. The succulent pork and chicken were both literally fall off the bone tender. Big thumbs up to CK’s Jerk Shack!

Late Night Dessert from the Batter Bowl Truck – $5 TIRAMISU

The tiramisu was soft and sweet, almost like a creme brulee but with that familiar taste of chocolate, coffee, and lady fingers.
