What’s better than getting food from a food truck? Having them all in one place along the beautiful Scioto Mile!
This year’s Food Truck Fest marked yet another beautiful weekend as summer comes to an end. With free admission and over 50 trucks with everything from new to old favorites there is something for everyone. And you better believe the Cbusfoodbloggers crew was in attendance! Spread out over Friday and Saturday, there’s plenty of time to check out several food trucks and that’s exactly what we did. The best way to take on Food Truck Fest? Bring friends and family to share food and try more things! There’s even live music to enjoy while you digest before hitting up the next truck.
Let’s see what the Cbusfoodbloggers posted shall we? Phillybuster was a popular stop for BabblingxBrooke and Columbus Food Troll (who also stopped at Just Jerks and Taco Mania) with delicious sandwiches but also an order of ice cream for Brown_OnTheTown (who also stopped at Taste of N’awlins, Hai Poke, Ena’s, and Chicky Chicky Waffle).
CbusFoodAuthority couldn’t pass up a chance to snag some Barroluco. As a previous Food Truck Fest winner, this was a popular stop for all as their display is always something worth seeing if not ordering. Although if you saw that dinner table sized paella on display how could you resist ordering?
With the popularity of lobster rolls, it’s so surprise that both Midwest_FoodFest and SweetlyCbus were spotted at The Wicked Lobstah. (SweetlyCbus also recommended Barroluco, Glazed Curro Bar, Chicky Chicky Waffle, Aloha Aina, and Nate’a Steamed Bagels.)
You can also along follow along with Tasting.With.Tina and she tries various food trucks such as The Wicked Lobstah, Phillybuster, and Big Mouth Eggrolls!
Always room for a slice of Mikey’s, right? WhatShouldWeDoToday_Cbus certainly made sure of it despite stopping at 3 other food trucks as well.
We definitely saved room for dessert because there were tons of options. In addition to her Phillybuster ice cream, Brown_OnTheTown had an Amish Country peach doughnut, SpiffyColumbus had a Buckeyes Donuts apple fritter a la mode (as well as Put It In Your Face Sandwich Cart, Meatball Mafia, and Big Mouth Eggrolls), and ColumbusFoodTrucks had both Sweet Tooth ice cream and Lyle’s crepes!
What is your favorite food truck in town? Or what is one you’ve been dying to try?
Congrats to this year’s winners:
