The things we do for food! Recapping the Downtown Raleigh Food Truck Rodeo

The things we do for food!  Recapping the Downtown Raleigh Food Truck Rodeo

Raleigh has been experiencing record high temperatures for the past week or so, and last Saturday was no exception.  Two girlfriends and I decided to brave the heat and head downtown to the Raleigh Food Truck Rodeo on Fayetteville Street, like the rest of the 1,000 people who usually attend.  Though the scorching temperatures spared us no mercy, we thoroughly enjoyed the experience.

If you live in the Triangle, but haven’t heard of the local Food Truck Rodeo’s by now, you either aren’t a foodie, or must be living under a rock.  Last Saturday’s event had over 50 trucks across the State of NC come to take part in the festivities.

It was my first time attending a rodeo, and the hardest decision was choosing which truck for my main meal.  After walking around to view all of my options, I decided on a truck called Dank Burrito, which is based in Morehead-City, NC.  All I can say is I’m SO glad I did.  The Teriyaki Shrimp Soft Taco’s with mushrooms, zucchini, and yum yum sauce was absolutely phenomenal!   I can see why Dank Burrito earned it’s title of 2014 Mobile Cuisine Rookie Food Truck of the Year.  Read all about that here:  News and Observer

It was nice meeting Clarke Merrell, the chef and restaurant owner who operates Dank Burrito

The fashion stylist in me absolutely loved all the bright colors of the Dank Burrito Food Truck

If you haven’t had a chance to check out the Raleigh Food Truck Rodeo, there’s two more opportunities to do so this year on August 10 from 3:30 pm until 9 pm and October 12 from 12:30 pm until 6 pm.   I certainly plan on attending again since there are several trucks I was dying to try but didn’t have a chance.

Hopefully I’ll see you there.  Feed me! 🙂

Love,
