Meatball Kabob Wednesdays
This truck called Tasty Kabob works the nation's capital pretty much from one end to the other (and deploys a sidewalk cart in Crystal City). The meat, in fact, is halal (the Muslim equivalent of kosher), and mostly involves very tasty skewered chicken or lamb, over salad, over rice, or in gyro sandwich form. The meatball kabob, available Wednesdays only, has a dedicated following.
The Ultimate Delaware Food Truck Guide
E ver since humans have been able to simultaneously walk and chew, we’ve loved food that’s on the move.
We started out chasing down the occasional alarmed wildebeest, and soon found ourselves in pursuit of less elusive outdoor fare: Food carts were as common as nervous Christians around the Colosseum of Rome Medieval unpleasantries were mitigated (somewhat) by street vendors hawking meat pies baked right on the cart.
And so, it would roll on, from prairie chuck wagons to bilge-water hot-dog carts, from peanuts to pierogis—even the humble ice-cream cone was the brainchild of a savvy street vendor. Food carts helped fuel our economic ambitions and fulfill our desire for fast food at fair prices. That happy dynamic has rumbled through the centuries and onto the streets of Delaware today.
Up and down the state, in parking lots and festival grounds, at gas stations and breweries, brightly colored food trucks have become a symbol and source of inventive cuisine, providing out-of-the-ordinary meal options to frazzled workers with neither time nor inclination to eat at restaurants. In fair weather, Wilmington’s Rodney Square buzzes with happy lunchtime food-truck mayhem. At Peco’s Liquors in Penny Hill, the parking lot sizzles all summer at Food Truck Fridays, the trucks’ generators clattering wearily in the hot sun.
“Right now, the scene is very oversaturated,” says Chef Wit Milburn, owner of two Thai-accented restaurants and the Kapow food truck, which serves up about 10,000 of his signature tacos a year. “It will soon be survival of the fittest. Everyone’s trying to do it.”
And so far, most everyone seems to be doing it pretty well, thanks to consumer mindset that’s been drifting away from sit-down meals and craving more on-the-go options. Sensing the shift—and seeking more independence—more Delaware chefs are deciding to take their acts on the road.
That’s the way it was for Steve Ruiz, who started his popular Mojo Loco truck after a decades-long career cooking at some of Wilmington’s top kitchens. When he lost his job after taking time off to tend to his sick mother, he decided to set off on his own. “I started off with a hot-dog truck and an idea, and that turned into an explosion,” he says, giving a nod to his mom for fostering his cuisine-spanning inclinations. “My mom was all over the spectrum. She taught me how to do it.”
And he’s never looked back. These days, he’s running as many as three trucks at a time, winning converts every day with his snappy, fresh-as-can-be shrimp tacos and lush steak-and-crab quesadillas.
Many other chefs say they are lured into the business by the thought of a simple, less stressful path to food-industry success. Often, it is anything but.
“Four years ago, I bought a food truck thinking it would be less work than the catering business,” says Melissa Ferraro, chef at Outlandish Catering/Food Truck, and owner of the recently opened Sonora at the David Finney Inn in Old New Castle. “I ended up working harder, working many more hours.”
Her labors are driven by surging demand, fueled by a peculiar business dynamic—a symbiotic relationship between the trucks and businesses in need. At the microbreweries that dot Delaware business parks, food trucks are brought in to provide sustenance to patrons and supplement the charm. At business parks where the big banks have been busy rehabbing offices, Delaware’s food trucks have been serving as lunchtime reinforcements. “That really did a lot,” Ferraro says. “People really made money off that for the past year and a half.”
Local vendors have also thrived by way of cooperation—helping each other in a pinch, and ultimately, banding together to form the “Rolling Revolution,” Delaware’s Mobile Vending and Food Truck Association, which serves as a booking agency of sorts for members. “It’s a tight-knit group,” says Paul Lauprasert, a former food-and-beverage pro now known for the fish tacos he serves at two KOI on the Go trucks.
But perhaps the biggest driver of success is the food—chef-crafted, freshly made dishes that are miles removed from soggy hot dogs and “roach coach” reputations. Today’s trucks brim with farm-fresh ingredients and elevated execution, embracing the same haute-cuisine standards that fine-dining restaurants like to believe is theirs alone.
So, when Ferrara heard about that chef who derided food trucks as “carnival vendors,” she bristled. “The day I read that, I served duck confit tacos on my truck,” Ferraro says. “I was like, ‘Really, dude?’”
The enlightened know the truth: Seriously refined and remarkably affordable food is served up daily from these cramped kitchens. At Ferrara’s Outlandish, there’s a deeply satisfying grilled cheese sandwich made with rum-soaked berries and brie. At Mojo Loco, Ruiz stands ready to knock some socks off with those gooey, lush steak-and-crab quesadillas.
“Delaware has come a long way in the food truck scene,” Lauprasert says. “It’s all about the quality now. If you do quality, then the quantity is right behind it.”
That dynamic is clear to effervescent Chef Javier Quereguan, a restaurant pro who helped run many a corporate kitchen in Delaware, but finally relented to his many fans’ requests that he open a place of his own. At his Doggie Style truck, the tweaked-up Latin-style recipes he concocts with wife Aurea are so unpretentiously artful no local restaurant competitor really compares.
To the people who line up at his truck, that fact is becoming clearer by the day.
“On Facebook, they say, ‘Your chicken and rice is my life,” he says with a twinkle of pride in his eye.

The buzz: The “Smyrnadelphia” cheesesteak seems to be served with a side of local snark. Be sure to check out the WoW Crab Melt Burger.
The Ultimate N.J. Food Truck Guide: 54 tasty ethnic and seafood spots
New Jersey restaurants are dizzyingly diverse, and it's no different with food trucks around the state. Here's a list of 54 seafood and ethnic food trucks, serving everything from Cajun, Chinese, Greek, Mexican, Italian and Thai, from tacos, empanadas and roast pork to falafel, pizza, kabobs and crabs. Travel the world by truck - food truck!
Peter Genovese | NJ Advance Media for NJ.com
You won't be crabby any more when you visit the Angry Crab truck. The owners are Chis Curado, who worked art Copeland in Morristown and Chakra in Paramus, and his cousin, Michael Ponte. The truck spends most of its time in Jersey City and Hoboken, with forays to food truck festivals at Monmouth Park, Laurita Winery and elsewhere. Also known for their lobster rolls and crab poutine, which one fan said "may have been the best tasting thing I've ever had in my mouth.''
Where you can find them: Jersey City and Hoboken.
I hadn't even heard of Ann's Catering until the Jersey Shore Food Truck Festival at Monmouth Park earlier this summer, when my fellow judges and I gave it the Top Truck award. The truck specializes in Caribbean food - oxtails, jerk chicken, coconut shrimp, sweet plaintains, and more. I love her jerk empanadas.
Where you can find them: Festivals around the state.
I love Greek food, but I wish there were more Greek-concentric food trucks this is the only I know of. The Forked River-based Aphrodite's Kitchen truck offers gyros, spanikopita, dolmades, moussaka and other Greek standards, and does festivals on weekends and private functions anytime. A fan on her Facebook page says she makes "the best gyro in the state.''
Where you can find them: Food truck and other events Down the Shore.
Aroy_D The Thai Elephant
Jon Hepner, owner of the Thai Elephant truck, is one of the pioneers of the Jersey food truck scene he helped found the New Jersey Food Truck Association. He and his wife, Pupay, operate the truck, a converted Matco Tools truck. Six months of renovations resulted in the Aroy D (Thai for "very yummy'') truck. All the Thai standards are on the menu - pad Thai, pad King, chicken satay, mango and sticky rice, and more. There is also a storefront in Verona.
Where you can find them: Pier 13 in Hoboken, Harborside in Jersey City.
Burritos ("The best food known to man''), tacos and bro-adillas (quesadillas, of course) are available from the guys at Bro-Ritos. The Beef Bro! is cooked in a homemade pepper and onion marinade the Chicken Chipotle Bro! includes pulled chicken with sauteed onions, roasted peppers and a special chipotle blend, and there's even a lobster roll.
Where you can find them: Pier 13 in Hoboken, Pier Village in Long Branch, and various events.
"A taste of the Old South with a Cajun twist'' is the slogan at Cajun Jax. Po' boys, voodoo shrimp, gator, "redneck egg rolls,'' crawfish etouffee fries, crabs, Southern sweet tea and more on the menu. I can't wait to try the deep-fried bourbon bacon-wrapped churros. Yes, you read that right.
Where you can find them: Festivals Down the Shore and South Jersey.
Carmella Italian Street Fare
Carmella Italian Street Fare
"Italian street fare'' sounds like youɽ might get sausage and peppers sandwiches or calzones, but Daryl Swetz is way beyond that. His Carmella Italian Street Fare truck, named after his Sicilian grandmother, offers "new Italian-American food'' - a combination of classic Italian food and "edgy'' contemporary American. Which means there may be a sausage and peppers sandwich, but it'll be kicked up with a spicy arrabbiata sauce. Or the chicken Milanese will be accompanied by a Tuscan-style kale salad. Pastas include the recommended spaghetti with Sunday gravy, and my favorite sandwich is the grilled cheese with sausage, peppers and onions.
Where you can find them: Jersey City Food Truck Hub

Gridiron Grub: A Perfect Combination of Marinara, Meatballs and Football
Sliders are one of the best tailgating options out there. However, with the popularity of generic cheeseburgers, tailgating taste buds can get bored. Add some Italian flair to the mix with a hearty mini-meatball sub. This will bring heartwarming flavors to the party without all of the spaghetti.
Mini-meatball subs make the perfect food for any football party. Simple to assemble and fun to eat, this recipe is sure to be a hit with both the kids and adults. And when it comes to preparation, it doesn&rsquot get much easier than this. All you need is the ingredients below and a crock pot. As a tried-and-true hit among my fellow Browns fans, football fanatics from all over can appreciate this delicious dish.
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 2-3 hours
Difficulty Level: Easy
- 32-ounce bag of Italian-style meatballs
- 1 jar of marinara sauce
- 1 cup water
- 1 teaspoon garlic salt
- Shredded mozzarella cheese
- Hot dog buns
Turn the crock pot on high. Add the jar of marinara sauce, bag of frozen meatballs, water and garlic salt together. Mix until the meatballs are covered in sauce. Cover the crock pot and cook for 2-3 hours.
Once meatballs are cooked to your liking, fill each hot dog bun with 4 meatballs. Add a spoonful of sauce over meatballs and then top with shredded mozzarella cheese. Cut the sub in half, serve and enjoy.
If you will be packing these subs to bring to a tailgate, simply wrap them in aluminum foil and warm up on a grill once you arrive to the tailgate.
And what’s a tailgate without bacon? Here’s an awesome recipe for a bacon wrapped chicken kabob!
