TO hound to Palm Beach ISO food trucks

Hey Florida foodies,
We head down to Palm Beach for the winter every year and this year I wanted to find out ahead of time what the closest (and best) food trucks were in the area. We do stay in N palm beach, but we are willing to travel a bit if necessary. Thank you in advance!

  1. I like Moty's and MexZican. Due to the scattered nature of trucks down here, a meetup may be your best bet. There's a meetup every Monday at Young Circle in Hollywood: http://miamifoodtrucks.com/2012/07/fo...

    1. There might be one or two in WPB. You will have to drive 60 miles south for that

      1. Spring In Roll Out is in West Palm Beach on Dixie just south of PB Lakes in the Marathon gas station. It is a vietnamese truck. I have been there several times. The bbq pork sandwhich is excellent. They are there Mon - Fri 11 to 2 pm.

        1. In fort lauderdale: Nacho bizness. Great tacos, very nice people running it. And try the chronic ginger lemonade.

          1. You could always hit up Tacos Al Carbon in Lake Worth.

            It was actually a food truck before the food truck "craze".

            1. Good news. A new FT roundup is announced for Wellington with food trucks from Miami, Broward, and Palm Beach.

              Wellington Amphitheater at 12150 Forest Hill Blvd.
              Thursday night 5:30 to 10 p.m

                  No, it is weekly starting with the first one this week. Try to verify it with a Wellington city website of some sort.

                  1. re: freakerdude

                    Okay great. Please report back on how it is. I would love to check that out.

                      Yea, I am not a food truck person willing to travel to events. But you you can read more about it here.

                        I've been to the Wellington food truck (every Thursday at the Wellington Amphitheater near Forest Hill Blvd & South Shore) and here are the trucks I'd highly recommend:

                        Friar Tucks — One of the best burgers you'll find in South Florida. Their Wu-Tang burger is an Asian spiced and seasoned burger with crunchy noodles, and sweet and spicy Wutangy sauce.

                        Best French Fries — Best french fries I've ever tasted. They're not frozen. You get a choice of white potato, sweet potato or yucca potatoes and 20+ dipping sauces. They even got a write-up in The Palm Beach Post at http://www.pbpulse.com/news/entertain...

                        International Classic Cuisine — Their Walnut Honey Shrimp dish with rice and vegetables is to die for.

              1. Thank you for your help, all! Keep me posted if you see any more

                1. hungryabbey you should check out the new Travel and Leisure issue (December 2012). There is a write-up about "a restaurant renaissance" in Palm Beach. No food trucks - but some places that you may want to check out.

                    1. re: hungryabbey

                      They sell the magazine at most Indigo stores I think. (I am from Toronto as well!)

                      It won't be online until their January 2013 issue is out.

                      1. re: elasticwaistband
