Yeehaw! Two nights of fun at the Boardwalk on Bulverde during the food truck throwdown this weekend. We had to go back Sunday to make up for not being able to eat enough on Friday.
Roasted veggie empanada from ; Sophie fell in love with empanadas a while back and this was a perfect starter for her evening. Crispy/flaky crust enrobing roast veggies--you know it is good when she doesn't pick anything out! Lucky for us the MMMMpanadas truck was there Friday night.
Pulled-pork bahn mi from the Duk Truck--couldn't stop eating this! Left too little room in my stomach so we had to come back Sunday. Not too spicy even with the sliced jalapenos, and the fresh herbs were terrific. It was actually a relief that they weren't there Sunday so I had to try something new.
Ample seating with shade, and unfortunately, lots of bees. We wised up on Sunday and didn't buy any soda. They had beer and water for sale as well. I thought $2 was a little too steep for water, but $3 for beer was reasonable :)
Gourmet mac n cheese from Guilty Pleasures: herbs + multiple cheeses. Definitely a crowd pleaser, I saw this on a lot of tables.
Peanut butter chocolate smores crepe from Crepe Nation: gooey marshmallowy goodness. Thank goodness the bees didn't find us.
Lines weren't bad, and noone seemed to run out of food when we were there. Tropical Storm Don, while not blessing us with much rain, did make for some cooling breezes and relatively overcast skies Friday night.
Trying not to become double-wide......Round Two on Sunday evening...a little hotter but less crowded and still plenty of choices.
Sophie obsessed over this pizza crepe all day Saturday and Sunday until we made a return visit to Crepe Nation.
Bistro Six's ahi tacos--these were my favorite dish, and at $5 for two and incredible bargain. For some reason, the bees loved this too! As bees swarmed, I stood my ground and didn't drop my plate despite my long-standing bee phobia.
Cookies and creme cupcake
Almond Joy cupcake and other assorted treats from Heavenly Sweets. With two pre-teens in tow Sunday this truck got a lot of our business on Sunday.
Sweets and treats! P o p s i c l e h e a v e n !
The best paleta EVER from Colibri Cuisine. Chemoya/cucumber/pineapple with just a touch of chili, and their steak quesadilla was awesome too. They convinced my steak hating kid with a free sample.
The roast corn from Saysheate was the best I had ever had...wish I had saved room for their duck fat fries!
Despite the heat and full bellies, the kids loved the bouncy slide--had to pry them away.
Props to the event organizers for realizing kids are crazy enough to want/need this type of entertainment, made for happier parents... The only downside was the heat (unless you were a kid and didn't notice it), nothing anyone can control in Texas in July. Very happy to hear there will be an October event at Boardwalk on Bulverde!
