Last night was so much fun. We headed to the historic South End of Charlotte for Food Truck Friday! I will always be fascinated by food trucks. I religiously watch food truck documentaries and the food truck challenges on the Food Network. I have secretly dreamed of owning a food truck and traveling around the U.S. but who hasn’t?
The weather was perfect for the event. Not too hot and not too cold! We got there a little later in the evening thinking the lines would be short, but boy were we wrong! The lines for each food truck wrapped around the area. These food trucks must be making a killing!
There were so many trucks to choose from. Lots of barbecue! We chose Papi Queso. I ordered a garlic grilled cheese sandwich! Jeremy ordered some kind of buffalo chicken grilled cheese sandwich. He said it was really good. I’m not a huge buffalo fan, but it looked good. I would have ordered bbq chicken cheese sandwich if they had one! That actually sounds delicious and now I must try to make one!
A grilled cheese sandwich is a grilled cheese sandwich right? Wrong! This grilled cheese sandwich was incredible. When you watch those overdramatic commercials as people pretend to enjoy something…well it kind of looked like that when I was eating it, but it was all real emotion. The cheese was melted perfectly, the bread was buttery and crisp. The garlic complimented the bread so well! I’ll stop before I make myself hungry…Oh but it was soooo good!
I chose the Best Budds cupcake! It was just a red velvet cupcake with cream cheese frosting topped with a toasted pecan.
You can tell I was happy to have my cupcake! 🙂
Jeremy bought one for himself too! He went with the classic red velvet.
The cupcake was perfect. I couldn’t name one thing to change! If they were to enter cupcake wars with this sweet cake, they’d win! I’m not a fan of cream cheese frosting, but would have eaten a tub of theirs! I also liked that the cupcake wasn’t overly gigantic! It was the perfect size to satisfy!
Overall we had a great night! Charlotte has a lot to offer!
