ORLANDO, FL – The food truck trend that has been sweeping the nation has made a pit stop in the Central Florida area.

TheDailyCity.com put on its first food truck bazaar at the Food Truck Bazaar Summer Series this past Sunday at the Oviedo Mall.

Foodies and families alike gathered in the parking lot of the Oviedo Mall to admire and demolish a diversity of delicious offerings.

The variety of attendees were able to pick and choose from the wide assortment of food options available.

For dinner, the bazaar offered everything from down-home barbecue at Firehouse BBQ to Spanish-style octopus skewers at Big Wheel.

Amanda DePreta, a master’s student specializing in mechanical engineering at UCF, visited six trucks within the first two hours of the event. DePreta said that, in that span of time, she and her friends had managed to eat fried food, soul food and barbecue. They completed their cuisine quest by polishing off some cupcakes.

Unable to choose her favorite truck from the large selection, DePreta narrowed her favorites down to either Firehouse BBQ or The Tree House.

Croix Provence, senior theater major, traveled to the bazaar for just a single truck, The Crooked Spoon. Eyes nearly glazed over, Provence described her reasoning with one simple sentence.

“Macaroni and cheese with bacon, it’s incredible,” Provence said.

Those craving something sweet had the option of grabbing some delectable fare from The Tree House food truck, where deep-fried Oreos and Twinkies lured in sweet tooths. Attendees looking for something a little less likely to give them a heart attack before they reached their car could head over to the Yum Yum Cupcake truck for an assortment of mini-cupcakes.
