Every second Saturday of the month, Miamians flock to Wynwood for Art Walk, where dozens of art galleries open their doors after hours, offering views of exhibitions and complimentary refreshments. But the art and free booze are not the only perks that make Art Walk so enticing.
The lot of more than 25 food trucks, offering everything from Latin-inspired burgers to Asian street food, is serving up their own works of art worth raving about. And like a Picasso, these trucks are legends. Here are a few not-to-miss food trucks setting up shop at Wynwood.
Driven by husband-and-wife team Brian and Fatima Mullins, Ms. Cheezious serves up indulgent cheesy takes on the classic American grilled cheese sandwich. Create your own masterpiece, with a choice of eight cheeses and ingredients like spiced apple and prosciutto, or feast your eyes on their Grilled Blue & Bacon, layered with bacon, creamy blue cheese and green onion. Finish off with theSweet Meltdown, a sandwich oozing with ricotta cheese and orange marmalade between slices of Texas toast and chocolate dipping sauce.
What’s not to love about Latin and comfort food? Former Food Network host Ingrid Hoffman’s Latin Burger and Taco truck drives it home with their portfolio of American classics with a Latin twist. The latin macho, a burger made with chorizo, chuck and sirloin, is served with Oaxaca cheese, caramelized onions, jalapenos and their “avocadolicious sauce.” There’s also the 3 amigos tacos, with choices of chicken tomatillo, pulled pork, or chicken mole.
Launched by chef and owner Richard Hales of Sakaya Kitchen, the Dim Ssäm à Gogo truck is taking his favorites from the kitchen to the streets of Miami. The mobile menu features creative takes on Asian street food eats, using natural meats, organic dairy and ingredients sourced from local farmers. Popular dishes include sweet chili pork belly buns, ginger brussel sprouts, and their “KFC” Korean Fried Chicken Wings.
The food trucks at Wynwood Art Walk are located on the corner of NW 23rd Street & NW 2nd Avenue, and start serving around 6 p.m.
