I love street meat, cheap eats, and all manner of casual deliciousness. And I love food trucks.  When my wife and I moved from the Upper West Side we lost our taco truck.  It was a topic of conversation.  And when we moved to Brooklyn we discovered the Rickshaw Dumpling trucks park overnight two blocks from our house.  They drive by each evening.

But I don’t think I ever realized how big food trucks had become until the National Restaurant Association had a food truck panel during the annual show, and I found Food Trux Map (foodtruxmap.com) which maps the location of hundreds of food trucks all over the country. 

It’s like a GPS tracker for every Oompa Loompa in Willie Wonka’s Chocolate Factory.
