Boston Hosts First-Ever Food Truck Throwdown

Boston and New York City food trucks battle for the title of top food truck city

Rev up your engines and your appetites! Notable food trucks from both Boston and New York City are competing in a day-long, mouthwatering Food Truck Throwdown on Saturday, Oct. 13 at Boston's Dewey Square from 11 a.m to 9 p.m.

Seven New York City food trucks will be battling it out against seven Boston food trucks. The event was created by Sara Ross, the founder of Boston’s Kickass Cupcakes.

Online voters were able to determine which food trucks from each city would compete. The Boston contenders are Bon Me, Kickass Cupcakes, Lobsta Love, Mei Mei Street Kitchen, Roxy’s Grilled Cheese, Staff Meal, and The Cookie Monstah. Representing New York are Fishing Shrimp, Bian Dang, Big D’s Grub, Mike ‘N Willie’s, The Munchie Mobile, Nuchas, and Wafels & Dinges.

To decide which city wins, a panel of local celebrity judges, including Emmy Award-nominated entertainment reporter Jenny Johnson, are selecting the champion. Admission to the Food Truck Throwdown is free.

Who will win the title for reigning food truck city: Boston or NYC?
