When we got word that Curbside Gourmet was back on the road we grabbed our keys, candelabra, and bistro table and headed north. The Palm Beach County food truck returned from a short hiatus and we were not letting them evade us again.
So, we drove 40 miles north to the abandoned Carefree Theater for a spur-of-the-moment lunch featuring seasonally fresh and local ingredients. Upon arrival we were greeted by a friendly group of patrons and promptly served by the Curbside crew. They even brought our food to our table. Now that is gourmet service!
What we ordered: Buttermilk Fried Chicken Sandwich with Balsamic Mustard Words cannot describe the bliss we experienced after biting into the Buttermilk Fried Chicken Sandwich. It was A.maz.ing. The chicken was plump, juicy and flavorful, the breading was light and seasoned to perfection, and the balsamic mustard was the icing on the cake. At just $6 dollars this sandwich is worth every penny.
Mojo Pork Tacos with Fresh Homemade Tortillas, Pico De Gallo and Avocado There was no shortage of ingredients in the Mojo Pork Tacos. The combination of the fresh homemade tortillas, pico de gallo, avocado, and Mojo Pork (love this marinade!) mingled perfectly together. And 2 for $5 is such a steal!
Crab Cake Slider with Lemon Tarragon Aioli The Crab Cake Slider was heavy on crab, light on filler and slightly crispy on the outside. Topped with herbed aioli, roma tomato slices, and fresh scallions on a soft potato bun, this slider was perfectly balanced in the flavor and texture departments.
At the end of our meal we were presented with the special of the day, a refreshing Orange and Fennel Side Salad (on the
truck house). This citrus salad was a bright ending to a superb lunch.
What we thought: The Curbside crew makes a fabulous lunch with very reasonable pricing, but it’s their fantastic service and hospitality that will keep us coming back. We are so glad this food truck is back on the road and suggest you try them out. You will not be disappointed.
