Food trucks have become an integral part of American food culture, providing cheap, tasty eats. They're also a source of creativity, offering new takes on classics.
Now that the trend has finally parked itself in Idaho, the Food Truck Rally has become a monthly celebration of the street food scene in the Treasure Valley.
Because they're mobile, sometimes it can be hard to find the food truck you're looking for, but the Food Truck Rally has changed that, allowing the navigationally challenged to enjoy Boise's street food without having to decipher a map or consult a smartphone. If you haven't tried some of these mobile meal merchants, the Rally is your best bet.
Vendors this month are B29 Streatery, Archie's Place, RiceWorks, Calle 75 Street Tacos, Stuck in Your Grill and Brown Shuga Soul Food. Save room for dessert and grab a cupcake from A Cupcake Paradise, and wash it all down with a beer from Payette Brewing Co.
Although these vendors are often genre-bending and category-defying, they all provide comfort food that will stick to your ribs and warm you up as the weather gets colder. You can also warm your soul since this month's rally is located at—and benefits—the Idaho Foodbank.
While you street foodies are filling your stomachs, you will also be able to help the less fortunate fill their pantries. Bring canned goods and get $1 off each brew in the beer garden.
