Your food truck favorites?

The Steinberg from Staff Meal is blowing my mind... What else do you love? What missed the mark?

  1. Bon Me is the only one I know, and it's pretty good.

      I am totally addicted to the Thai Basil Limeade at Bon Me

        LOVE the miso pork, & the deviled eggs are good too.

      1. Pennypackers is a hidden gem which gets a number of different combinations right. They do an amazing flask steak sandwich, but they have a number of notable vegetarian dishes. The duck confit sandwich is also delicious, but amazes me more since it comes from the side of a truck.

        One of the cooks told me he was vegan at one time, but he is no longer vegan. They offer some vegan dishes which are tasty.

        The one downside is the location; it's in a remote section of Southie which is accessible by car (and the SL2 bus).

          Its also by the BU central T stop on a side street.

            I heard that flask steak is full of bourbon.

          2. Just had one - it is pretty awesome - my favorite burrito right now. They had another one today with pork neck and fritos - looked tempting. I can't figure out why the Taco Truck gets so much more business. They are good, but not as good as Staff Meal.

                Can't think of much else - maybe a rename top Staff Sustenance?

              2. re: nsenada

                Is it really rich? I've had two tacos from there, the chinese sausage and barbacoa beef, and while they were both very delicious, they were so rich it seems like the burrito would require a nap to recover from. Although it might also make a great hungover lunch.

                1. re: HeinzGirl

                  Yes - definitely on the rich side (otherwise I probably wouldn't have eaten it).

              3. Chickpea fritter from Clover--a falafel-like sandwich wrapped to go, with all the fixins. Messy but delicious!

                  Second the Clover chickpea fritter.

                      I love their pimento sandwich as well.
