Generation Food Truck Rally at First Baptist Church of Brandon

March 4, 2013 | By | 1 Reply More

After hanging with my parents for a drink at Lee Roy Selmon’s yesterday, my Mom told us she wanted to go on an adventure. We weren’t sure what she meant, but after scrolling down my Facebook feed I saw that the PAO Filipino Food Truck was at First Baptist Church of Brandon just a few minutes away from us and we decided to go an adventure for lumpia.

It was freezing cold outside, but that did not stop the crowds from organizing for some food truck grub.

It was very fortunate that Porchside Coffee & Tea was serving warm drinks during this cold day. My Mom enjoyed a latte and I grabbed a hot chocolate, both were excellent.

Gringo’s Burrito Box grabbed a large crowd and kept them coming until they closed shop.

Although we arrived after the initial rush of foodies, the crowd flowed at Hott Mess for the majority of our stay.

Enjoi Sweets had a crowd that sold them out which was impressive for such a cold day. Floridians will go anywhere for some food.

3 Suns Bistro for the health-conscious. Great.

I love the art on this truck and the Puerto Rican flag on it is definitely a plus!

The PAO Filipino Food Truck had one of the biggest crowds of the trucks and we were happy to wait our turn for some lumpia. Unfortunately, the Lola’s Lumpia was sold out – we decided to have the Turkey Lumpia instead at the recommendation of the female attendant of the truck.

The turkey lumpia did not disappoint and it was probably a good thing that we went with turkey since we ordered 3 boxes of them and that would have probably been too much of the Lola. The consistency of the lumpia has been solid with each of my visits to PAO and I am very happy that they are finding success in Tampa Bay.

Thus our food truck adventure came to an end. Until next time!
