Some Thoughts

Just because I feel like this is an issue relevant enough to address: the debate on whether or not to eat a food truck because of prices.

Since this blog is mainly targeted at college students, I understand college students are on a “college student budget”, however I don’t think that should be a major dissuasive factor for trying out food trucks.

FairyCakes

The newest cupcake truck in San Jose, FairyCakes, made its debut at the Movable Feasts March 2012 and has been growing in popularity since. On its grand opening, FairyCakes sold out in under three hours entering the feast attached to a tow truck.

Now, I don’t know about any of my other readers out there but a food truck who puts in the effort to still show up attached to a tow truck has my respect. Perseverance will get you far and paired dedication and loyalty to your customers will never hurt your business.

Yumsilog

Ever wonder what one of the perks of being a food truck blogger?

People start to tell you about upcoming food trucks to review and try out.

This Tuesday, some Filipino friends of mine told me to go try out this Filipino food truck (yumsilog) on campus that I have never heard of, so needless to say, I went out and tried it.

Curry UpNow

Indian Street Food… Honestly, I have never been the biggest fan of Indian food because I’m not huge on the whole ‘mouth-on-fire’ effect that I tend to get trying their dishes.

However, putting fears and previous experiences aside, I decided to plunge in the world of spice and curry.

I found this colorful food truck screaming for my attention parked in another Movable Feast I attended. The line of people was decently long and the aroma wafting out was the last straw in deciding to try it out for myself.

Donut truck

What’s your guilty pleasure? Donuts? A juicy west angus burger? What about the most intoxicating health defying creation that combines them both?

On another Friday evening at the weekly Movable Feast on Curtner, I walked around the assortment of food trucks with one goal in mind: Try something new.

Treatbot!

Ever heard of the food truck called Treatbot?

Well you should have and if you haven’t, just keep on reading!

This food truck also called the “Karaoke Ice Cream Truck From The Future” has some flavors most people have never heard of. They make their own scrumptious and mouth watering ice cream flavors only limited by the imagination of their makers. For example, their famous and local flavor named 408, from a San Jose area code, has vanilla, caramel, fudge, and brownies all in one delicious scoop. My favorite flavor would probably have to be Ube since I’m full Filipino, I love Halo-Halo, and purple ice cream is just awesome.

Movable Eats!

Imagine sitting home alone with nothing to do but surf Facebook.

That’s how I started my Friday afternoon until I stumbled on a Facebook Event titled, “Movable Feast: Willow Glen“. A feast fit for a king hosted by food trucks held somewhere close by my house? Needless to say, this wonderful sign of fate did not have to urge me any further.

But what’s the relevance of social media to food trucks  and why is this post titled as a history lesson you might ask? Let me explain.

Welcome To My Food Truck Adventures

Hey Everyone! This is going to be a new blog project I’ll be starting to track down some local Bay Area food trucks. I’ll be giving everyone a quick rundown of each food truck and my own personal review of each tasty tidbit I’ll be ordering. Just to give everyone a little picture and background information of myself.

This is me:

I’m currently a 3rd Year at San Jose State University majoring in Public Relations with a minor in Communications. Most people call me RJ and one of my favorite passions is actually reading. I know it’s a bit rare for a guy to enjoy reading as much as I do but what can I say? I’m a book nerd and proud of it! I enjoy hanging out with my friends all around San Jose for random shenanigans and of course eating out.

I may not be the most qualified food critic but I will give my honest opinions uncensored and straight up. The wallet of a college student may play a role in this blog but I’ll be posting weekly once if not twice a week!

So subscribe, follow, read, enjoy, and welcome to my blog!
