the birmingham fooooood trucks!

I am MASSIVELY intrigued by the food truck craze in Birmingham.  Quite frankly, I don’t know WHY more restaurants don’t do this!  Low overhead, little to clean up, quick and easy turnover.

The history of the food truck started out as a Chuck Wagon in the old west.  Don’t you remember having to buy the supplies on the trail to Oregon?  And having to make sure the Chuck Wagon didn’t get lost in the river?  Most likely you would just die of dysentery anyways…. (you do remember the The Orgeon Trail, right?!  Please tell me that you played that game off of a HUGE floppy disk while growing up?  Or perhaps that was just an Indiana deal…)

All of that is nice and dandy, but I really think they started to hit big time popularity after a show on my favorite (food porn) network The Great Food Truck Race.   Or maybe they were before then.  All I can tell you is that we have 5 food trucks in the Birmingham Area that I know about.   My favorite? I am going to have to say Dreamcakes, because who DOESN’T like having a surprise cupcake every now and then
