    1. have any you tried the new food trucks in town yet? my favorite so far is the Crooked Spoon on the corner of Fern Creek and Colonial where Between the Buns once stood at the Chevron gas station. Try their Crooked spoon burger and bring a friend to split the mac n cheese, they use a 6 cheese blend, roasted peppers, bacon, and bread crumbs its awesome

        I've driven by twice looking for it, and it hasn't been there. I hope to catch them this week to try the burger and mac 'n' cheese.

            Just came back from the Crooked Spoon, and the food was as good as you promised. The burger was easily the best or second-best I've had in Orlando, with only the Ravenous Pig as a contender. A whole new batch of rosemary chips was fried fresh while I waited, and as a huge chip fan, I can say they were excellent -- flavorful without being overwhelmingly salty, and not greasy at all. I split the macaroni and cheese with my co-worker, and I loved the addition of thick bacon, herbs, and roasted red pepper strips, plus the fancy rotelle pasta. Everything was awesome, and I highly recommend the place.

        2. Just bumping this to remind everyone that the Orlando Food Truck Bazaar is tomorrow night (see link above) - if you live in Orlando and love food I'm not sure how you can justify missing this :)

            If you work nights on Colonial near 436, you're going to have to miss it. >:(

            1. The Swede Dish is great- I found them at Eat More Produce on South Orlando Ave near the intersection of Orlando and Orange - their meatballs and mashed potatoes are amazing- as are their chocolate and coconut balls

                Just got a chance to try The Swede Dish food truck last night and those were the best Swedish meatballs I've ever had. Delicious!

                their lingonberry sauce provides a nice sweetness to it, very well made.
