I’m always hearing about new food trucks I HAVE to try. Unfortunately, there are close to none where I work in the Back Bay. Thankfully that’s all about to change – I start a new job downtown on Monday!! Until then, my tactic for finding food trucks has been to stalk them out on the weekends wherever any food truck food courts may be in existence. This tends to be SOWA on Sundays and food-themed festies on Saturdays, which is where I found myself a few weeks ago when the Museum of Science hosted the first ever “Let’s Talk About Food Festival.”
Arriving just in time to grab a quick lunch before work, I scoped out a few of the cooking demonstrations and free food samples before b-lining it to the mobile food court. There were a handful of food trucks on site, so Meesh and I decided to try a few new places and share a couple things. Starting with the Barbequed Pork Sandwich from Bon Me…
Right next to the Bon Me truck was The Dining Car, which I’d never seen before. The self proclaimed, “stainless steel kitchen on wheels” makes a delicious variety of sandwiches served on freshly baked homemade focaccia. They were boasting a pretty decent line as well, so we decided to try out one of their sandwiches.
The Fresh Mozzarella, Tomato and Basil Sandwich. The tomatoes were flavorful, the mozzarella was creamy and the fresh baked focaccia was legit! It definitely took this otherwise ordinary sandwich to a totally different level. A perfectly simple yet satisfying choice.
And since their was a cupcake truck nearby….
I obviously had to order one for dessert. I’ve been to Kick Ass Cupcakes before in Davis Square. And their cupcakes do in fact kick ass. This time around I decided to go for the Ginger Peach Belini, even though it was a vegan cupcake and I my friends am no vegan (HELLO I just ate mozzarella cheese DIPPED in whipped feta cheese for dinner last night). I was however a little curious, and I must say even without the use of dairy my Ginger Peach Belini cupcake was awwwwwesome. The cake itself was almost like ginger bread. A little dense like a baked loaf of bread, with a cinnamon-ginger flavor. I was into it. And I loved the fresh raspberry on top!
I also got to sample some of their other cupcakes including the traditional vanilla and a limited edition cupcake I’m not quite sure the name of but it was filled with strawberry jelly and topped with rich vanilla icing and totally made my day. Thank GOD our city is all about supporting the food truck take-over, it’s easily one of the best things to happen to Boston this year!
