The Weekend: Food Truck Mania


On Saturday, Beau and I ventured out to Main Street in Manayunk for their Manayunk StrEAT Food Festival. This event was a kickoff to their restaurant week (April 14-26th). As mentioned in a previous post, I love Manayunk because that is where I snagged my first job towards the end of high school.  Manayunk is still a part of Philadelphia, but it's so quaint and small--with little shops and restaurants lining a couple blocks-- it feels like its own town.

Gourmet food trucks and stands with different cuisines set up shop along Main street for a couple hours that day, serving up their most popular meals. Strawberries were the key ingredient for the event, so we found many vendors with that ingredient incorporated into their meals... Like the strawberry lemonade cupcake I devoured  in the most unattractive way. haha.

I could not believe how many people actually came out to the event. The streets were packed with families and friends just hanging out. The lines were super long. Everything smelled great and I'm sure they tasted even better because many things were sold out by the time we got to some trucks.
