Happy New Year!
As you may have noticed, my postings have become quite infrequent and I’ve been on a bit of a hiatus for the last few months. In an effort to adopt a healthier lifestyle, Chris and I have been following a pretty strict low-carbohydrate diet lately, which has really put a damper on most of our favorite food truck feasts – until last Friday!
The weather was a bit warmer on Friday and I was starting to have serious Moveable Feast withdrawals. It’s been months since we’ve attended any Moveable Feasts, since we felt the temptation was just too great, but on Friday we decided to give it a shot. There had to be something healthier we could eat.
I started off Takoz Mod Mex, where I ordered the Street Dog sans bun.
The bacon-wrapped dog was delicious, though definitely a bit difficult to eat. I ended up spearing the dog with my fork and taking bites, which may not have looked pretty, but worked fairly well. The only issue was that it didn’t really allow me to enjoy the dog and the toppings at the same time.
Next, I went for the shrimp tacos at Bigg Shrimp’n, but I skipped the tortillas. I was worried I’d end up with a wimpy little plate of food, but they actually hooked me up with a really awesome salad.
For the grand finale we decided to go for some bunless pork belly baos from The Chairman Truck. I have to admit, I was convinced baos would be a waste without the warm delicious bun, but again, I was so wrong.
They might not be the prettiest thing on earth, but the lack of bun actually brought out the flavors ingredients really nicely. To add to it, the folks at Chairman Truck were really generous with their portions and we left feeling more than satisfied.
I have to admit I was truly pleased with my lower-carb food truck experience. Overall, each truck we visited was truly accommodating and made us something delicious.
