A lot has happened since I last reported on Miami's food truck scene: More trucks, more events, even their own free app so you can keep track of them all by iPhone or Droid courtesy of the trucks' original blogger-stalker Seth Gonzalez, a.k.a. Burger Beast.

At a recent rally in Tropical Park, I was thrilled to discover some 20 new trucks, as well as the good news that most of my old faves are cruising the streets. Slow Food Truck (SFT) was a standout with juicy short ribs, shallots, and watercress in a squishy bun (a little pricey at $8).

Gonzalez, who's been a terrific booster for Miami's mobile gourmets, has turned his passion into a career as a food event organizer, reviewer and caterer with his own shiny black monster of a truck. The Burger Beast mobile is a moveable feast of Gonzalez's favorite local chefs who guest in his kitchen.

The new Burger Beast website and twitter feed are two ways to catch the local food truck buzz, and a rival site, Miami Food Trucks, is coming on strong with nifty features of its own.
