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.

I 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.
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.
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.
I 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!
