I’ve been loving the food truck movement that has hit Chicago. I think it’s pretty awesome that I can get a variety of delicious food right on the street. I’ll I have to do is find out where the trucks are going to be via Twitter, show up at the location, grab some food and chow down 😀
You know what else I really like, empanadas. I have fond memories of these delicious pockets of goodness ever since my trip to Argentina. Empanadas are the perfect on the go food!
Okay, now try to imagine how happy I was when these two great things were brought together as one:
Oh, yea the 5411 Empanadas truck has made me a very happy girl! Looks like I’m not the only one digging this truck, check out the line of people.
The line is like that from the time they open until they run out of food.
I looked over the menu while waiting my turn:
I was really happy to see the Argentina flag on the truck. This gave me confidence that these were going to be good!
It was finally my turn at the window:
And I placed my order:
Food Truck + Empanadas = Love
I wanted to start my day off with some protein so I got some scrambled eggs topped with hot sauce:
I bet you can guess what I had for lunch. Empanadas of course!
I had two of them:
Both were filled with ham and cheese:
These babies were good and reminded me of the ones I had in Argentina. So excited to have found this food truck. I’m sure you will see these again on VC&C!
Breakfast and lunch lacked veggies but I more than made up for it with dinner. I chopped up 3 peppers, celery, carrots and lots of lettuce for a salad Patrick and I split.
