Need Help with Choices for catering Birthday Lunch with food trucks

I'm helping plan my daughter's 40th birthday party. We're all spending the morning building a house for Habitat for Humanity after which we are going to have lunch at a nearby park pavillion. I have narrowed it down to Gastropod or Dim Saam A Gogo and Dolci Peccati Gelato or Sugar Yummy Mama. We will be around 40 to 50 people. I would appreciate any feedback from the board.
Thanks in advance.

    What a fun idea! Can I go? :D I have no advice, as the only truck I've dined at was Rolling Stove - not those - but what a cheeseburger OMG! And the jerk chicken!.

    Take pics of the food!

      I would definitely go with Dim Ssam over Gastropod. They have a wider selection and I think the food is much better. Others do like Gastropod, but I am not a big fan. I love Dim Ssam/Sakaya.

      I haven't tried either of the dessert trucks so have no opinion on that.

        You can't go wrong with Dim Ssam a Go Go, the food is just incredible and pretty "party-ready" in my mind (chicken wings, burgers, ribs, plus more interesting things such as Brussels sprouts, banh mi, and Chinese/Vietnamese bao).

        I do have to agree Rolling Stove makes some pretty ridiculous cheeseburgers too. IMO one of the best in SoFla!
