Whole Foods’ Blue Route Taco Truck

Earlier this week Angie and I had a chance to preview Whole Foods’ new “Blue Route Taco Truck” in Plymouth Meeting, Pennsylvania. I was there as a guest of Angie’s Not Just Take Out site (one of her many side projects that sadly keep her away from MLD) and it’s best to let her handle all of the savory details there. Everything was delicious, but what really drew my attention was that this event involved a food truck, and I know food trucks.

I’m getting tacos from the Entourage truck

Choosing a place for lunch in West Philadelphia is always interesting. There are a lot of options ranging from gourmet burger joints to questionable food trucks, but I tend to stick with my usual places (much like where I park). It’s Friday, I decided to venture out and it was impossible to avoid seeing this image of Jeremy Piven selling Mexican food.

The truck is called “Coup de Taco” and my Thai chicken rice bowl was very tasty. Look for this truck on 40th Street between Walnut and Spruce or weeknights at 11:30PM on myphl17.


You can get anything from a food truck

This afternoon I had the pleasure of experiencing a new Philadelphia treat, the Buttercream Cupcake Truck.  Having heard talk of this roving bakery for weeks, I figured I should investigate when word came that it was in the area.

They had about 8 options to choose from combining chocolate and vanilla cakes with different buttercream icings and ganache.  I wanted to get something green in honor of my Irish heritage, but it turns out every option came with shamrock sprinkles in a shamrock wrapper.  The vanilla cake with peanut butter icing was delicious and the accents certainly reminded me of the old country.

You can learn all about the truck’s mission at the Buttercream website.  You can also track the truck’s location around town by following them on Twitter at buttercreamphl.
