Durham’s food trucks have gotten quite a bit of press over the past few weeks, most notably with a special feature in the N&O and a New York Times piece that featured Daisy Cakes (in addition to several other Durham restaurants) -- and in this week's Indy Week feature to boot.
If you haven’t had a chance yet to visit the roving restaurants, this Sunday is your chance.
An email circulating the listservs notes that this Sunday, June 27, the second installment of Durham’s Food Truck Rodeo will be convening at the Durham Farmer’s Market Pavillion at 501 Foster St in the Central Park district.
The trucks will include Daisy Cakes, OnlyBurger, Mom’s Delicious Dishes, Winkie’s Dogs, Parlez-Vous Crepe, Bulkogi, LocoPops (itself getting a recent mention at CNN), Kona Chameleon, The Big Red Bus, and Joe Bushfan’s Big Hot Dogs.
The event starts at 4:00, and runs until 7:00.
As seen in the picture from the first event, the crowd is expected to be large, so arrive early if you want the best selection. (Last time around, a number of the trucks ran flat-out of food, though there's promises of more supplies this time 'round.)
Also, note that most trucks are cash only; if you forget, closest ATMs are at RBC Bank (Morgan/Morris) or the downtown Marriott.
Besides the food, there'll be music by Durham's own DJ Piddipat's Dance Party.
