I took a trip to visit the food trucks in Klyde Warren Park. The park is celebrating its one year anniversary. My first recommendation about the park is don’t drive there. There is a trolley stop at the park and you can catch the trolley a block from Bailey’s Uptown Inn. Parking at the park is limited and not free. The day we visited there were four food trucks – Gandolfo’s New York Delicatessen, The Butcher’s Son, Crazy Fish Sushi and Snow Cones and What’s Da Scoop.
Gandalfo’s has a basic deli menu and the sandwich I had which was a turkey on wheat with swiss cheese and avocado was huge and good. The sandwiches all have New York themes like I Love New York (corned beef, pastrami, swiss, mustard and Russian dressing) and New York Giant (pastrami, pickles and mustard).
The Butcher’s Son served all different varieties of sliders. They sounded delicious like the Mac-n-beefy (braised beef, baked mac-n-cheese, bbq sauce and cheddar on a brioche bun) and the Longhorn (braised beef, jalapeno, tomato and pepper jack on a brioche bun). My companions ordered the quesadillas from here which were not great, but who orders a quesadilla from a burger joint?
Crazy Fish and sushi had a selection of sushi but I couldn’t get my head around eating sushi from a food truck. The snow cones looked delicious though.
Whats Da Scoop had all kinds of ice cream, shakes and sundaes. We tried the cappucino and chocolate ice cream which was very tasty.
When the weather is as nice as it has been it’s nice to visit the park even if you decide not to partake in food.
