After a long and tough winter, it appears that the time to enjoy outdoor lunches and snacks has returned. In many people's minds this means one thing above all: Food trucks! With the weather looking a bit more consistent (dare we say it!?), let’s find out what’s new in this community of meals on wheels.

Many see the whole point of having a food truck as the first step towards opening a brick and mortar restaurant, and this year a few of our friends have done just that. In addition to their two new trucks, Bon Me has opened its first brick and mortar location at 1 Kendall Square. Mei Mei is eyeing a spot in Allston and Roxy’s Grilled Cheese is going through the preparations for their own space as well, stay tuned.

New to hit the streets are FUGU, Compliments, Baja Taco Truck, Sweet Tomatoes Pizza and the much anticipated A4 (Area Four) truck.

Luckily, any bad news comes with a silver lining. Staff Meal sold their much loved truck, but word on the street is that the guys are taking steps towards a brick and mortar of their own instead (think Asian fusion, possibly in the Fenway area).

Get on out to enjoy the weather and the wonderful food these guys have to offer. Farmers’ markets and outdoor events will also ramp up, so stay tuned!  Check out the updated food truck schedule to find out where you can find these guys and when.
