The meals on wheels come screeching to a halt

Today was my fourth and final day of sampling food from area food carts and trucks. Along with high school interns Phil Donahue and Maria Fontes, I hit the M&M Ribs truck in Dorchester, the little bahn mi (Vietnamese sandwich) cart plus a Chinese pancake maker on the ground floor of the Chinatown Eatery food court, and fried dough on the Common (where a sausage vendor I had wanted to try was MIA). A pretty good day: those ribs (above) were mighty tasty, the sides might have been even better, and the bahn mi (below) was a crispy, creamy, crunchy delight. I'd rather not talk about the fried dough, and I don't mean that in a good way. Look for the story on Aug. 16.
