Burgie Awards 2015

Renown South Florida blogger, Burger Beast, brought the Burgie Awards back for a sixth year.  The Burger Awards, which awarded 15 prizes for the best in South Florida comfort food, as free and open to the public.  It was a great opportunity to catch a lot of the food trucks that I hadn’t gotten a chance to try in my travels.

donmofongoDon Mofongo came to represent, serving up their mofongo.  Sadly, it wasn’t as good as I remembered it being.  It was a little bit dry and crumbly, and the pork was also a bit dry.

mscheeziusI have been chasing Ms. Cheezious for a looong time, but they never seemed to be within proximity of me when I am available.  Did my bacon and cheddar on Texas Toast merit all of the type?  You’ll have to see for yourself.  I’m too busy licking crumbs off of my shirt.

hippop

As a die-hard frozen custard fan, I normally turn my nose up at Gelato and sorbet.  But, when one of my travel companions tried a Blood Orange popsicle from Hip Pops and declared her intent to have her way with it, I just had to see for myself.  My chocolate-dipped cappuccino gelato pop was, in many ways, an eye-opening experience.

velvetcreme

The return of Velvet Creme donuts was a topic of much heraldry.  And, who DOESN’T like a good donut!?  Sadly, the donuts themselves tasted very close to Krispy Kreme, which I don’t like at all.  I tasted nothing but shortening, and my companion said that they left a film in her mouth.  However, fans of Krispy Kreme will go nuts over these donuts, as evidenced by the ridiculously long that this truck had the entire night.

poblanosI didn’t want to leave without having at least one serving of tacos.  Because, tacos are a textbook example of street food!  These tacos weren’t particularly remarkable, and I ended my evening on an average note.

For the adventurous types, there were plenty of “off the beaten path” food offerings.  A certain someone got her hands on a Paco (pancake taco),  It was, according to her, like eating a fat crepe.  Well, alright then!  Poor Paco didn’t stand a chance….

This was a fun event, and the weather was great.  I hope to attend next year.  Thank you to all of the food trucks that attended and offered us some grub!
