The Oviedo Food Truck Bazaar hosted by TheDailyCity.com at the Oviedo Mall took place this past Sunday August 14th 2011. I arrived to a rather wet scene, the Central Florida skies had become overcast with intermittent rain storms. The rain poured for a few minutes before slowly dissipating, allowing food truck lovers to head out from their cars, where we had all been hiding, and lined up to sample the delicious food truck offerings at the bazaar.
Food trucks at the Oviedo Mall included C&S; Brisket Bus, Firehouse BBQ, Melissa’s Chicken & Waffles, Tastebuds Catering, The Crooked Spoon, The Pupusas Truck, Korean BBQ Taco Box, The Travelling Gourmet, Big Wheel Provisions, Treehouse Truck, Gastro-Truck, Mama’s Fixins, CK Jerk Shack Gourmet Island BBQ, The Gator Truck, Yum Yum Cupcake Truck, The Batter Bowl, Sunset Italian Ice, and The Crepe Company.
I had the chance to eat a few pupusas from the tiny yellow Pupusa truck with my buddies. A pupusa is a Salvadorean dish made from a thick corn tortilla and filled with beans, cheese and pork or chicken. The pupusas are served with a side of salsa and some curtido (lightly fermented cabbage slaw with red chilies and vinegar), which go very well together on top of the pupusa if you so choose.
The Fall 2011 schedule for Oviedo Food Truck Bazaar includes: Sept 11, Oct 9 and Nov 13, 5-9pm all three nights. There is no December bazaar. All Oviedo bazaars happen at Oviedo Mall.
