Eat, Drive, Love

Meet the food truck Class of 2013

The rookies arrive in Boston this spring, filling fans with hope and excitement for the season ahead.

Of course, we're talking about these future all-stars from Boston's growing food truck team.

Fugu
The name sounds like something a New York cab driver might yell at you in rush hour, but don't be fooled. Their double-braised pork belly sandwich, served on two grilled or steamed buns, is worth fighting traffic for. But luckily it now comes to you along with cold peanut or sesame noodles and a hybrid Korean-Italian kimchee bulgogi panini.

Taco Party
You already knew tacos are good for your mind. But this free-wheeling festival of veggie-based bliss proves they're good for your blood pressure, too. Six days a week, hardcore carnivores are digging these adventurous vegetarian takes on tacos, including the Tempeh Tantrum (marinated tempeh, avocado, shredded cabbage, green onion salsa).

Area Four
Italians may love their sports cars more than their trucks, but that's all about to change with the vehicular version of Kendall Square's Area Four bakery, codenamed the A4. It's no Ferrari, but with an array of Italian favorites for breakfast and lunch (think fresh-made flatbreads with Cape Cod bluefish and of course an espresso to go with it), this car will still stop traffic. Literally.
