Truck Stalking
By: Ellen Gurley

Truck StalkingCharlotte has been my home for thirty six years.  In that time I have seen A LOT of restaurants come and go.  For some Charlotte restaurant owners, the “coming and going” is what keeps them afloat.  I’m talking food trucks.  And I have learned that if you want to find these trucks, you’ve got to follow them on twitter.

In my stalking of the truck I have found a few favourites; Papi Queso, Maki Taco and my top favourite is numnum a GoGo.  I had a “Yeeeah Dog” from them the other night that did me right.  It was a deep-fried and seasoned all beef hotdog wrapped in a spiral cut potato on a skewer.  And I had a yummy Philly Quesadilla.

Get your own favourite food truck and  follow them on twitter.
