food trucks

Thinking of using 3 food trucks for an engagement party...............
Dessert truck suggestions are welcome as well.
Efficiency and deliciousness are key components for me.

  1. How fun! Congratulations!
    I love the LudoTruck...easily my favorite of all the trucks. I haven't found a dessert truck that I love, but I'm quite fond of the Palazzo Gelato truck...they have tons of flavors and the few I've tried are quite good.

    1. my very favorite dessert truck is the italian ice truck, they use fresh fruit-- mango tango i think it's called. it's spectacular if you grew up on the east coast and miss authentic italian ices. the flavor of the cherry and lemon are exactly how you remember it.

      1. I like the Flatiron Truck, Jogasaki Truck, the Lobsta truck, the Global Soul truck, and the LudoTruck. I haven't tried many dessert trucks so I can't help you there, but I really really like the grilled donut holes with spiced creme fraiche that the Flatiron Truck serves (although I haven't seen it on their menu the last 2 times I ate there at Fig & 7th).

        1. The one time I tried Ludo it took FOREVER to get the food and they weren't that busy. Maybe it was a fluke.

          Flatiron I like, Patty Wagon, Rebel Bite, Rosa Bella Cucina, Ragin Cajun. And they're food comes out quickly, there isn't a huge wait.

          I like Mango Tango as well.

            I've usually gotten my food pretty quickly, maybe they were having issues that day? I also like Ragin Cajun! The owner is really friendly too and gave us generous samples.

          2. I like Shrimp Pimp and Egg Slut and Flying Pig. And CoolHaus for dessert.
