In addition to Melissa's Chicken and Waffles and Twisted Cuban, we also had delectable fare from Big Wheel, Five Gastronomy, Kona Dog, Yum Yum Cupcakes, and Pop Craft. Kona Dog features jumbo beef, sausage or veggie dogs, served on a Hawaiian bun. Then, you can choose from a few different "Hula" sauces, mustards, and fruit sauces to really give the meal a tropical feel. The one we ordered was mighty tasty!
I am still blown away by the quality, gourmet food that comes out of food trucks - demonstrated in this case by Five Gastronomy and Big Wheel. Five Gastronomy's owner Bruno served us up a Soft Shell Crab BLT, Pork Tacos, and Crispy Fries. The fries really live up to their name - I love my fries crispy. The soft shell crab on the BLT was lightly breaded and fried to perfection. The Pork Tacos, served with smoked corn puree, pickled onions, jicama cilantro salad and avocado drizzle, were so moist and flavorful!

I was able to try Pop Craft Pops (natural artisan pops) for the first time. One of the owners, Bonnie, said that Strawberry Balsamic and Lime are two of the cart's most popular non-dairy popsicles and you should also try their Coconut Cream and Mexican Chocolate flavors. I opted for the Pear, Thyme and Tarragon pop and really loved it. Although everyone may not appreciate the texture - you can taste chunks of the herbs in the popsicle - I loved it.
