Don't get me wrong - it is still a family-friendly and pet-friendly event, but not like the Maitland Food Pod at Lake Lily every Wednesday night is. Unlike the Maitland event, there is no seating here and the trucks are parked by the sidewalk. So, the street is noisy and hot from the trucks.
I dig the collection of food trucks at Tasty Tuesday, though. You can find a great variety, including: Kona Dog, Melissa's Chicken & Waffles, Big Wheel Food Truck (gourmet Southern food), 5 Gastronomy, Twisted Cuban, La Empanada, The Crepe Company, Yum Yum Cupcake Truck and Pop Craft.

As a waffle lover, I have been dying to try some of Melissa's Chicken & Waffles' creations. Among Melissa's selections are: Chicken & Gravy Waffles, Waffles with Nutella & Marshmallows, and Jerk Chicken Wrap with Waffle Fries. We had the Honey Chicken Waffle, and it was amazing. The fried chicken, cheese, and honey mustard sauce all combined to make a great chicken sandwich. I was impressed that the waffles were flavorful and not dried out.
There were more great trucks that we tried out, which I will review in next week's blog post. Stay tuned!
When: Tuesdays, 6:30-10:00 p.m.
Where: 2424 E. Robinson St., Orlando.
