Keeping My Promises

Food truck dinners are our newest foodie treat.  I know they are all the rage right now and we are playing into it, but we are having so much fun tracking them down and trying new foods we probably wouldn't in a typical restaurant setting!  Several of the food trucks motoring around the Denver area have joined together and promote themselves as the Justice League of Street Food.  The Justice League has organized several FREE events where they gather together in one spot (a vacant lot downtown) for a few hours and serve delicious food.  We have been to two of these events and the food has been awesome, the music rockin,' and the people (vendors and customers) fun and interesting! Here are some of the favorites we've had so far. 

Oh, and maybe one of these days we will eat there for lunch and I can take better pictures to show you.

First up....The Biscuit Bus

This is my favorite new restaurant.  And it's on WHEELS!  It is the Denver Biscuit Bus and they make some ahhhh-mazing biscuits.  Now, this is a lot coming from me because I make awesome biscuits.  I am very proud of my biscuits and how good they are.  But these?  Heavenly.  Scrumptious.  I love the word scrumptious.

I have two favorite bicuits from here - The Ellsworth and The Jack Lee. 

Stats on The Ellsworth...  Fluffy, warm, delicious buttermilk biscuit, fried chicken, stone-ground mustard, honey, and homemade pickles. 

The Jack Lee....Wonderful biscuit, thick cut bacon, and grape jelly.  The simplicity of this is what makes it so wonderful.  Scrumptious. 

I highly recommend trying one of these.  You definitely won't be sorry.  I promise.

Next....Pinche Tacos. 

Picture used from this site
Dave went and stood in line and ordered two tacos for us to try.  When I got home, I wanted to know which tacos I had tried and looked up their menu.  Dave had clearly ordered their Lengua taco without realizing what he had ordered.  Any guess as to what a Lengua taco is? 

Think about it....lengua, language, speaking....


Yep,  was my first time trying beef tongue and I have to say...it was suprisingly delicious. 

Not what I expected.

I don't think I'm brave enough to cook it on my own, but I will definitely be having these again!

This is Kalyn enjoying her after-dinner treat from the Inventing Room.  These guys (and probably some gals) are crazy good!  Kalyn is eating (and barely sharing) her Salted Caramel Ice Cream with Peanut Butter Pop Rocks.  This was delicious, delicious!  We could barely get a bite from her and the PB Pop Rocks totally, should I say..? Rocked!?

If you are in the Denver metro area and happen to find yourself near one of these trucks - stop and try something!  You won't be disappointed!!!  Oh - you can follow the Justic League on Facebook and some of these trucks to find out where they are on a daily basis!

  1. We need to go try out these trucks together sometime!!! Sounds delicious. Not sure about the tongue, but the biscuits and Kalyn's dessert sound incredible.
