Happy Best of Santa Fe 2017!

Let's FORK!

Last week I mentioned that it seems that the food truck trend sort of fizzled out before starting here in Santa Fe. And I still stand by this. Food trucks in Santa Fe aren't really doing the truck part of the equation. They tend to find a vacant lot and sit there. Always. Which, I guess works. ¯_(ツ)_/¯

But, you CAN find those motionless trucks in a few spots: a rotating crew at Meow Wolf that includes Trinity Kitchen; that weird vacant lot at the corner of Paseo de Peralta and Old Santa Fe Trail; the always good Bonsai Asian Taco just north of the St Francis/Alto stop light. And if you're feeling adventurous, the amazing Pollo Asado sits nicely in the parking lot between Cheeks and Arcade News at 2864 Cerrillos Road.

You can also find Bang Bite, which last week I claimed was MIA (I'm sorry Enrique!), it sits at 492 W Water Street. Open 11:30 am-6:30 pm Monday-Thursday. The hours switch up Friday and Saturday—open for lunch 11:30 am-2:30 pm and then for dinner 5:30-9 pm. Bang Bite is still the best food truck in town, according to SFR readers, though I'd say Trinity Kitchen is not far behind (sorry Enrique).

Did I miss any trucks you love? Any you hate? That you miss? Let me know.

Don't forget about the Santa Fe Farmers Market community picnic on Aug. 11.

The event features locally sourced foods form both vendors and chefs as well as music and games. With both vegetarian and meat-based options, the picnic will be a family-friendly way to celebrate our area's farmers.

Chicken is provided by Pollo Real, burgers by Nambe Orchards, and veggie skewers by DerailedSchwebach Farm is supplying the corn. Intergalactic is bringing the bread. Second Street Brewery will be on hand selling brews and Freezie Fresh has you covered on dessert!

WHEN: 6-8 pm Friday Aug. 11
WHERE: Farmer's Market Pavilion (1607 Paseo de Peralta)
COST: $20 (children 12 and under are free) - Get your tickets HERE

Thank you to the sharp-eyed readers who reached out to me about Bang Bite. Keep me honest!

Have a great week,
