I am pretty sure people by now know that I am super in love with trying new things food wise so when Manayunk (Philadelphia neighborhood) announced that they were having an all day festival involving Philly's finest food trucks I was ALL in!
Each food truck had a mission this week as well, they had a secret ingredient and they had to include that secret ingredient in one dish to serve as a special to all of us today. Since it was Fall, Manayunk chose apples. It was kind of awesome! (Eat THAT Guy Fieri!)
My favorites: Crispy pork belly over creamy polenta from Local 215, freshly made butter biscuits topped with homemade sausage gravy from Philly Food & the Jim Hansen cupcake (vanilla oreo cupcake with cookies & buttercream frosting)! We also enjoyed a VERY tasty vegetarian chicken Bahn Mi from Kung Fu Hoagies, spicy bean and cheese empanadas from Zea May's, and a VERY interesting pork taco with sliced apples and kim chi slaw from Philly Food!
It was a SUPER successful day with lots of amazing eats and lots of new respect for those food truck pioneers that are always thinking of amazing ways to keep us coming back for more!
