Manchester, TN – Bonnaroo introduced food trucks to its culinary options last year. The experiment went over so well festival organizers have added even more this year — nine trucks in two locations, up from six last year.
New trucks on the site include Savory and Sweet from Knoxville, Tenn., which expects to sell some 8,000 tacos this weekend, and Asheville, N.C.’s Gypsy Queen, a Lebanese street-food truck that has designed a menu with the Bonnaroo audience in mind.
Roti Rolls, also new to Bonnaroo this year, offers Indian-Asian fusion fare. “We’re a little Southern, too,” says co-owner Cory Burke from Charleston, S.C. While many of the Roti Rolls menu items feature kimchi and curried foods wrapped in an Indian flatbread, the dish that had festivalgoers lined up Thursday night was the Thurman Murman — creole macaroni and cheese with braised pork and kimchi.
“People love it,” says Burke, who likes to call his wraps “pillowy pockets of love.” “They can’t get away from it.”
And Pot Kettle Black owner Jon Caton can’t get away from Bonnaroo, though he had to close up shop early last year when he ran out of food.
“We exceeded our expectations and sold out at six on Sunday,” Caton says. He considerably increased his supply for this year, but it may not have been enough. “Just from today alone,” he said Thursday night, “I’m afraid I’m may sell out on Sunday again.”
