Philadelphia, Baltimore, and Washington, D.C. each boast vibrant food-truck scenes, but most of these trucks had never traveled outside of their own city's borders. They didn't, that is, until the Taste of 3 Cities Food Truck Festival. Now, 60 trucks from three of the East Coast's largest cities are going on tour, engaging in a delicious bit of cultural exchange during three separate festival appearances. Read on to learn more about some of the featured trucks at the fest's Philadelphia stop:
- Oink and Moo: These barbecue barons sling savory brisket and pork sliders and Tex-Mex tacos across New Jersey and Pennsylvania. They also landed at #6 on The Daily Meal's list of 101 Best Food Trucks in America.
- Baron Von Schwein: Under the watchful eye of their truck's fearsome wolf mascot, chefs from York, PA work their dark barbecue magic on brisket, pork, and chicken, turning this meat trio into everything from sliders and tacos to cheesesteaks and salads.
- Philly's Finest Sambonis: These cheesesteak truckers—seen on Food Network's The Great Food Truck Race and hailed as one of the city's best by Philadelphia magazine—hollow out and stuff their rolls with a lip-smacking mix of meat, cheese, and fried onions
- The Cow and the Curd: This award-winning truck local truck serves baskets of piping-hot, beer-battered Wisconsin cheese curds.
- Undrgrnd Donuts: With drool-worthy delights such as The Homer (dunked in vanilla, coated in raw sugar and chocolate-bacon chunks), this rolling donut purveyor took home the 2015 Vendy Award for Best Dessert in Philadelphia.
