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.
