Inaugural JAX Truckies Food Truck Rally

Today Rob, Lauren & I went to the JAX Truckies Rally featuring ten gourmet food trucks in downtown Jacksonville. First stop was Super Food where we picked up Tuna Poke Nachos (sesame-soy-ginger marinated Ahi with wasabi hummus & kimchi atop nori nachos) as well as mac 'n cheese balls.

From Monroe's Smokehouse BBQ we had Sweet Potato Fries, Memphis Deluxe Sliders (pulled pork topped with creamy cole slaw & oh so sweet bbq sauce) as well as Smokehouse Pulled Pork Sliders.

I love the Gourmet Aviator truck. This is the front ...

... and this is the side. I could've shot this awesome aluminum truck with great graphics & photogenic rivets all day long.

At Mother Fletcher's we got a Philly (Filet Mignon, sauteed green peppers & sweet onions on a toasted steak roll, Teriyaki Wings (it took Mama 13 years to perfect these marinated juicy wings) & a Falafel (crispy on the outside, moist & perfectly seasoned on the inside. Served in a soft pita topped with Romaine lettuce, Roma tomatoes & scratch made tzatziki sauce).

At Corner Taco we had a Fried Mayport Shrimp taco with white corn puree & a side of asparagus.

We also had Espresso Blackened Mahi-Mahi & Carnitas tacos. The Corner Taco food truck is a beautiful vintage 1965 Airstream Globetrotter that came to the TOUR in March (links to my blog post).

Nice building mural across from the rally.

I shot some random photos as we walked along the waterfront.

When we got back to PVB, Rob coaxed Stella onto his lap. We were stuffed, but knew we'd have to digest in time for dinner ... a Low Country Boil party at Matt & Ilona's.

The tacos look so good! I just didn't have room to try too many things on Saturday. Thankfully I've caught Corner Taco when it was in Southpoint not too long ago.

Your photos make me hungry all over again! I'm sad we only tried two trucks at the rally before getting full, but I like your strategy of a small group each sharing tastes from each truck.
