New to the food truck scene is The Hungry Traveler. They specialize in American classics like hot dogs, burgers, and sandwiches made with a fresh and exciting take like the tarragon chicken salad and gorgonzola burger with chipotle onions. I was most psyched about the Michigan chili dog and one bite took me back to my other roots in the North Country. Dare I say this Capital Region version could very well rival Plattsburgh's. J couldn't stop raving about his cheesesteak and how flavorful and well-seasoned the meat was. His only wish was to swap out the American cheese for provolone or cheese whiz.
Even though we often indulge in too much, leave it to Eat Good Food to give us a fresh, healthy, and tasty side of greens to go with our buffalo chicken and angus beef tacos. Loved the sweet, summery bite of peaches in our salad!
As stuffed as we were, we couldn't leave without dessert! We're no strangers to The Crisp Cannoli since discovering the crodos at the storefront and were excited to encounter the food truck. Sadly the croissant doughnuts were sold out by the time we hit it up and settled for an eclair. Put chocolate anything in front of J and he's a happy camper.
We were treated to one very last bite from Eat Good Food with a sample of their brownie ice cream sandwich. I don't even like walnuts but I'd happily eat more if it was jammed packed in this brownie. It's a chewy brownie with plenty of chocolate flavor and the perfect vehicle for everyone's favorite summer treat.
Lucky for us, we've got at least two more "Hump Day Happy Hour" Food Truck Showcase dates to look forward to including one this week! Stop by Shmaltz Brewing Company for a few bites and flight of brews on Wednesday, August 20 and Wednesday, August 27 from 5pm to 8pm and share with us your favorites!
