1st Ever Nashville FOOD TRUCK FOOD COURT!
Tuesday this week marks a monumental day for all food truck lovers here in our beloved city of Nashville. Three great food destinations – The Grilled Cheeserie, Pizza Buds, and Bang Candy Company – are all coming together for our first ever Food Truck Food Court. What the heck is that?!? Essentially, an idea popularized in the Food Truck capital of the world, Los Angeles, this type of food court is where lots of trucks come together to serve their delicious food, and hungry people like you and me get to go around and get food from all the different eateries. Have a slice of pizza, grab a sandwich, maybe some of Crystal’s awesome pudding, and top it off with some hot chocolate with homemade marshmallows! Bring your family or your co workers and have a fun lunch hour. This is going to be awesome and I hope it continues, since I’m loving these mobile food options! Here are the details:
What: 1st Ever Nashville Food Truck Food Court
When: Tuesday, February 15, 12-4 PM
Where: West End and 23rd Avenue
The Grilled Cheeserie – I love the Grilled Cheeserie. I did a post on them a few months ago, that I’ve updated with things I’ve eaten, so check that out here for all the info. Awesome grilled cheese, homemade tomato soup, tater tots, and the BEST PUDDING EVER. If you haven’t been yet, you need to check this place out – quick!
Pizza Buds – I really love Pizza Buds. I’ve had it about 5 times now – always late night in front of 12th and porter, their regular Saturday night spot. I have been meaning to post, but need to get some good pictures, so I think that come Tuesday, I’ll get one in the works. The pizza is beautifully crisp, extremely flavorful due to their cheese blend (mozzarella + provolone) and pizza buds seasoning. The unique part of their crust is that it’s bathed in a brown sugar-butter mixture, so it’s an unexpected and delicious end to a great slice of pizza. I also just became the mayor of Pizza Buds on Foursquare last night. I’m pretty stoked about that. Check out the Nashville Scene’s write up here.
The Bang Candy Company – I had the pleasure of trying the Bang Candy Company’s marshmallows a few weeks ago at NFM Night Market and boy, where they good! All types of unique flavors like cinnamon-chili and rose-cardamom make these some seriously gourmet and delicious marshmallows. In some awesome hot chocolate, or just as a sweet snack, you can never go wrong with these. Another great write up from the Scene, here.
I love what these companies are doing. It’s taking simple food – a grilled cheese sandwich, a slice of pizza, and marshmallows – and elevating it into something special. It’s the philosophy I take when cooking, so I love to help support people that believe in the same thing. Let’s help these guys out and head over to the Food Truck Food Court on Tuesday. I’ll see you there!
