First Fridays in Venice

On the first Friday of each month, food truck lovers flock to the streets of Venice.

Countless food trucks line the streets awaiting hungry bellies and open mouths.

Be warned, you will be parking a bit further than you think. Get there early and get ready to fight a bit of a crowd.

As we walked along the streets the first truck that caught my eye was the B Sweet truck. I didn’t think it was humanly possible to have such deliciousness come from a truck but I was proved wrong, very wrong. I’m hoping I don’t come across this truck for a while or I’ll be needing to do a lot more hiking.

Bad news bears: They were sold out 😦

BUT just look at their plethora of bread pudding flavors…

Venice food truck rally -acaffeinatedbrunette.comStarting with dessert, we ordered their glazed bread pudding.

Venice food truck rally -acaffeinatedbrunette.comIt was…heaven. Just so good.

Venice food truck rally -acaffeinatedbrunette.comWe weren’t done yet…Next came the tornado potato. I kept seeing people roaming the streets with twisted potatoes and had to have one. Wouldn’t you?

And then we saw the VCHO truck selling mexican cokes.

There’s a myth that Mexican coke tastes more natural and has more complex flavor than American coke.

Maybe it was just the really cool big glass coke bottle but…

After we were refreshed, it was off to fill our bellies with more food of course. Venice food truck rally -acaffeinatedbrunette.com

The Bun Truck is a gourmet food truck serving Korean-Mediterranean fusion. They are known for their Korean BBQ gyros and steamed buns. (But I heard their duck fat fries are delish)

Venice food truck rally -acaffeinatedbrunette.comI ordered the Katsu Bun with deep fried pork, cucumbers, cilantro and sweet & spicy sauce.

The buns come out soft and steamy. The Katsu had a nice combination of flavor and texture. It was very spicy, I could definitely smell the flowers after. Venice food truck rally -acaffeinatedbrunette.com

After we were a bread pudding, potato tornado and Katsu bun in there was just one more thing left: Dessert.

We hadn’t been eating that all night or anything…

We ordered the original churros calientes. Just like fried dough in a stick.
Venice food truck rally -acaffeinatedbrunette.comI may have been in a small food coma by the end of the night. At least I have just about a month to recover. See you all at First Fridays on Abbott Kinney in August! xx

  1. “Food Truck Invasion, as it’s called called in our town, just began a few months ago here in our corner of So Flo and it’s very popular. I can only hope it grows to include some of the treats you share here! Bon Appetit!

  2. OMG I love food trucks! They recently caught on here in Tampa and I’m so glad they have. The twisted potato looks divine…and churros – yummmmmm! Next time get some dulce de leche with the churro; heaven.

    • I haven’t really heard too much about FL food trucks. Hopefully they take off because they’re a lot of fun 🙂 I will! Thanks xx
