Meals on Wheels: Food Trucks Roll, and Rule

Last week I ate the most delicious breakfast in recent memory, and get this: It came from a truck.

The food cart scene has blown up all over the country, from Austin, Texas to Kansas City, Missouri, from Boston to Los Angeles, spurring Twitter followers to stalk their favorite trucks and inspiring more than a few reality shows. For a sampling of the best meals on wheels, check out this Huffington Post slideshow of the most innovative food trucks.

And if you find yourself on the West Coast, check out my top recommendation: Portland, Oregon’s Big Egg, one of nearly 700 food carts in the city. It’s where I got that unbeatable breakfast—a flour tortilla filled with perfectly scrambled eggs, grilled potatoes, mushrooms, white cheddar cheese, topped with fire-roasted poblano salsa and yogurt lime sauce. The taste may have been on par with the zillion dollar omelette, but the price wasn’t even close. This little warm bundle of goodness cost me less than six bucks.
