Somehow I missed the Tweet that the La Cense Burger Truck would be right around the corner from my office! My heart nearly skipped a beat and it was as if I had seen a celebrity! The Gods of Food led me to the magical location. The aroma alone was enough for little droplets of drool to start building up in my mouth. Like a 12-year-old girl I told the guy who handed me my burger how I’ve read so much about you, love the work you do, and I even follow the Twitter feeds. WHOA FOOD NERD ALERT! Luckily I batted my eyes enough so he didn’t think I was a psycho. I couldn’t get back to my desk fast enough! I would say I’ve had a lot of burgers in my life and this was by far the juciest, most flavorful, and satisfying burger I have EVER had. [Yup even better than Bobby Flays]. I also got a little customer loyalty punch card and nice fat pickle! The Burger didn’t photograph too well but here are some pics that commemorate the experience.

For those of you unfamiliar with the term ‘street meat’ it’s those trucks that park all over the streets of Manhattan and Brooklyn serving delicious and creative food! Street meat has come a long way since the days of dirty water dogs and are catching on to the Twitter trend. Just like you can follow world news from CNN find out where your favorite truck will be parked for the day! Great way to develop brand loyalty and flood business.
Here are some 0f the popular ones I follow:
@LCBBurgerTruck serves all natural burgers from grass-fed cows of Montana. The La Cense steakburgers are lower in calories and fat and higher in Omega-3 fatty acids and beta-carotene than the average burger.
@schnitzeltruck brings Austrian food to the streets. Fresh to order, using all natural ingredients, serving three varieties including chicken, pork and cod, along with sides. For those unfamiliar with the schnitzel, it’s a a hand pounded, lightly breaded thin cutlet fried to golden perfection. It is traditionally served with a lemon wedge and a side of Austrian potato salad. (I can’t help but hum the tune from ‘Sound of Music’ …Doorbells and sleigh bells and schnitzel with noodles…these are a few of my favorite things!)
@desserttruck speaks for itself. Serving gourmet creations such as chocolate mousse with a peanut butter filling and carmelized poporn…maybe I shouldn’t follow this one!
