We came ready and left with full stomachs. Our second experience at the Tampa Food Truck Rally was much better than the first and most importantly we got to explore, well, the food! This time around, the weather was nicer, we arrived earlier so the lines weren’t too bad, and we got everything we wanted to try. Not only was the location bigger, there were several more trucks showcasing their food. It is really exciting to see just how the food truck craze is rapidly growing in the Tampa Bay Area.
Here are our favorites:
The first stop was the La Creperia Cafe truck. We wanted to get a head start at the dessert before it got too busy. They had both dessert style and savory style crepes. We didn’t go wrong with the banana nutella filled crepe ($4), and hope to try out more crepes from them.
1729 East 7th Ave
The crab filled empanadas ($3) from the Mr. Empanada (http://www.mrempanada.com/) truck were also a hit appetizer.
Fire Monkey Food Truck won as our favorite truck. This was one of the first places we tried as we didn’t get a chance to last time. They offered a very unique selection of food that we really can’t categorize into one type.
We got a wrap filled with grilled chicken, wasabi sauce, mozzarella, and plantains. What a crazy combination of sweet and spicy… we loved it! Also, the fried plantains with spicy aioli sauce was delicious. (total $10)
