Free Wheel'n Cafe, which hit the streets of Dallas in Mid-April. This gourmet burger and cheesesteak truck is making the rounds of Dallas, including a weekend visit to the Deep Ellum Brewing Company. Follow them on Facebook and Twitter to find out where they are serving next.
Coolhaus would be opening a DFW truck, operated by Gary and Teena from Nammi. Coolhaus made their debut at Downtown Frisco StrEATs and as expected, the lines were long as people wanted to taste chicken & waffles ice cream with potato chip cookies or Guinness ice cream on chocolate chip cookies. Follow Coolhaus on Twitter or check the website for their schedule, which is still in the final stages of planning.
Crazy Fish has their debut on Wednesday, May 2 and will also be out May 3. This will not be your average sushi restaurant, the menu provides something for everyone. In addition to fish, Crazy Fish offers chicken or beef sushi and many cooked options. Follow Crazy Fish on Facebook and Twitter for more information about where they "roll".
Texas Food Truck Festival and the debut of The Fat Truck, billing itself as a MoGo (Molecular Gastronomy) truck. The menu is a combination Latin and Asian with items such as tacos, steamed buns, ramen and bahn mi. The Fat Truck plans to serve in Fort Worth, you can follow them on Facebook and Twitter to get exact locations.
Short N Sweet is an event ice cream truck, operated by dwarfs. Every person who contacted me said the ice cream was amazing and they wished they had ordered seconds, especially of the rice pudding bar. I hope to cross paths with this truck soon to check them out. You can follow them on Twitter to see if they are coming to an event near you.
GOING OUT OF BUSINESS?
There is some sad news this month, it seems that Fort Worth may be losing two of its trucks. Trough Burger Wagon has posted on their Facebook page that the owners are moving out of town, and they want to sell the trailer and name to someone who promises to keep everything as is. So far, I have not seen that they have found the right buyer.
Crazy Sisters has also posted that they are selling their truck and all the commercial equipment. No other details have been provided but when a truck starts selling equipment, my assumption is that the doors are closing for good. Crazy Sisters was one of the first trucks I visited after starting this blog and their absence from the food truck scene will be a loss for Fort Worth and the Mid-Cities.
With these additions and assuming both Fort Worth trucks close, we will have sixty-one trucks rolling in the Metroplex by the end of May.
