Miami has always been known for its amazing cuisine. The diversity of its people means a variety of food from all over the world that tantalize the taste buds.
A great place to experience this large range of food types is at a food truck gathering. The food truck scene in Miami has been growing throughout the years and one of the most well-known meet-ups is at Haulover Park. The park, located just north of Bal Harbour and about a 20-minute drive from South Beach, has a large kite-flying area where food trucks gather every Tuesday from 5pm to 9:30pm.
There are usually over 15 food trucks, ranging from BBQ to fish tacos. There’s also a live DJ and bouncy houses for the kids, so it’s a really fun thing to do with the family.
The only bad thing about the food trucks is having to choose which one to eat from! I went with my brother and we agreed to eat from different trucks so we could share and try a variety of food.
I chose to eat from Mr. Good Stuff, which had Venezuelan cuisine. I had a Bella Bambina Caprese (an arepa stuffed with fresh mozzarella , tomatoes, basil, and balsamic vinegar) for $9 and a Cheezy-My-Neezy (fried cornmeal bites stuffed with 4 cheeses) for $5.
My brother ate from FOAR and ordered the Indonesian Mei Goreng. Then for dessert, we ate again from FOAR and ordered a Nut Job PACO (a pancake formed like a taco that was filled with bananas, nutella, whipped cream, and hazelnut dust). It was all really good!
So the next time you’re driving around Miami on a Tuesday night, stop by Haulover Park for some great music, a fun atmosphere, and a lot of fantastic food.
