    He seems legit.

    Working in NYC the food truck is an ever present option of great/bad ideas. But my love of mobilized kitchens of grease, meat and questionable cleanliness started when I was a student at Rutgers and the Grease trucks were truly your best option…
    The food truck selling doughnuts that I saw the other day really intrigued me. I've long held a belief that the powdered doughnut is the most sanitary food you could ever eat. I'll explain.
    Things that make food dangerous are bacteria and chemicals. They can be there from not being cooked well, or by transfer. Well here you have a piece of batter fried in hot oil, that will cook out the germs no problem. Next it's dropped into a pile of powdered sugar. This powdered sugar provides a protective coating to the doughnut, nothing can stick to it. You could have oil on your hands, the sugar will stick to your hands, no oil on the doughnut. It's brilliantly simple, whatever sticks to the sugar, takes the sugar with it, not the other way around. It is always a sanitary and clean food.

        Damn Skippy… (Thanks I couldn't remember if it was subject of an ad or Mythbusters.)

      10 years ago, food trucks here were roach coaches or taco trucks parked outside self-serve junkyards. Now food trucks have become a hip thing, and I find I can't get food from one without spending $10 on one small "gourmet" plate.

        Yeah, when I was working in SoHo, TriBeCa Taco truck was always out front, $6 burritos and a $1 Coke, no problem. My new office has Calexico… Hipster Burritos, $9-12 for a damn burrito.

          That's ridiculous. Even more so because in reality Calexico is a shit hole with lots of cheap Mexican food 🙂

        The taco trucks around here are still cheap as hell and awesome. $5 will generally get you a full plate of four tacos.

          Thankfully there are still plenty of great cheap taco shops (San Diego is arguably the capital of taco shops), but the breweries I like to go to often have food trucks parked outside and they're not cheap.

            That's because after you've been in the brewery and are now in the mood for food, the rational part of your brain that says $12 for a burrito is too much has long since shut down and gone to bed.

    This guy is from Boise, I see this truck every summer. The truck would play the weirdest music, like christmas music and twinkle twinkle little star at 100 dBs for hours in my neighborhood. Scary Larry is a staple of south Boise!

      I think all ice cream trucks/minivans get their music from the same guy.

        Turkey in the Straw!!

        1. FuzzyPlushroom Avatar

          The truck that roamed my hometown in New Hampshire played Turkey in the Straw. The one down here (Lowell/Dracut) plays a tune I haven't yet figured out… it's not Turkey in the Straw, it's not The Entertainer, it's not Pop Goes the Weasel, and it's not the apparently-regionally-popular Mister Softee tune.
          The internet has failed me so far.
          Super Edit: Turns out it's "Music Box Dancer". Why? Seriously, the fuck? Oh well, it's unique.

            At least it isn't "Hold me clothes, Sir, Tie me down, Sir"

    When I'm visiting my parents, I occasionally hear an ice cream truck driving around the neighborhood. I can't recall ever having seen it, but its musicbox-thing playing all the old nursery rhyme standards must be somehow worn out or on its last legs, because it sounds a bit run-down and out-of-tune. It ends up giving an extremely creepy vibe to hearing it pass by.
    …now I'm pretty sure I know what it must look like.

    What wine should one serve with powdered doughnuts?

    Friends taught their 4yo that "this melody means that they're out of ice cream". Pretty clever, but I'm sure it will backfire some day…

      That's just cruel. Buying ice cream off the truck should be part of every kids life. Like peanut butter & jelly samiches. (Don't get me stated on the allergies – Feed em enough when they're young, they'll develop antibodies!)

    off topic, crazy semi-truck jump– no fatalities.

    I have been coordinating the food trucks at our office for about a year. I have noticed a marked increase in prices. A few of them are still reasonable (and awesome), but many are $10 for a meal now. I've also noticed that many of them are becoming unreliable and flighty, as they are constantly looking for a bigger venue. Rather than stay and build a following at one location, they try to hit as many as they can. Not wise, in my opinion.
    This is my favorite one:
