The first Apopka Food Truck Round Up hit Apopka’s Kit Land Nelson Park by storm on Thursday, August 4th. This event will be hosted by the City of Apopka every 1st Thursday from 5:30 PM – 9:00 PM, but be warned certain items will sell out early in the night. Luckily the park isn’t too far away, so how can I say no to some of my favorite food trucks.
The lineup included The Yum Yum Truck, The Crooked Spoon, Sunset Ice, Big Wheel Mobile Food Truck, Treehouse Truck, Winter Park Fish Co., KBBQ Box – Korean BBQ Taco Box, C&S Brisket Bus, and the brand new Gastro-Truck.
The event seemed like a success, especially for being it’s first time. The City of Apopka had lots of tables, chairs, garbage cans, recycling setup in the area. Plenty of space to walk around and room to wait in line for your favorite bite to eat. It was definitely hot but it’s August in Florida, any surprise?
The Yum Yum Truck sold out of cupcakes pretty early in the evening. The guys said people were buying them by the dozen to get a taste of all their flavors. Glad I got mine early! Especially the new S’more Please cupcake. It’s a good new addition to the lineup for something new.
Treehouse Truck sold out before the end too, which made me really glad I got to try the Chimoo. The Chimoo is chicken, steak, sweet potato fries, coleslaw, and mango BBQ sub. I must admit it was delicious with all the flavors mixing very well.
The Gastro-Truck made it’s debut, but they had issues with the generator early in the night and only had a limited menu to start. Here is a side of their Mac N Cheese.
Big Wheel Truck always has unique items on their menu with great local produce and unique additions. Tonight is no different with Brown Sugar Bacon Fries, Angus Hot Dog with pineapple and BBQ sauce, and Ironbeer Soda.
All the truck owners I talked to love the location, the crowd, and was overall really happy with the event. Count me in for the next event on September 1st. More information and updates can be found at the event’s Facebook Fan Page http://www.facebook.com/ApopkaFoodTruckRoundUp
