Woohoo! The Great Food Truck Derby returns to the Hamptons tomorrow, Friday, August 11, and my mouth is watering already.
Sponsored by Edible East End, this is a terrific event where you can bring the whole family for a bonanza of mobile eats rarely seen on the East End. Get ready to make way for the caravan of New York City and Long Island food trucks park amidst potato fields at the Hayground School in Bridgehampton.
I’ve been to many a Food Truck Derby and let me tell you, every year is a treat! Here are a few of the things we can’t wait to eat and drink:
1. Triple Threat Brownies
That’s right; Blondie’s Bake Shop will be serving up what they call the “Neil Patrick Harris” of baked goods: A chocolate chip cookie stacked with an oreo and a brownie. Why have one treat when you can have three?
Philadelphia is a lot further than Bridgehampton—and I heard more than a few people at last year’s Derby deeming Chiddy’s CheeseSteaks even better than ones they previously enjoyed in Philly. Don’t take my word for it though; try one of Chiddy’s cheesy, beefy masterpieces for yourselves.
Now here’s an epic victory for epicureans: The Walrus and The Carpenter’s Traveling Oyster Company. Yes, really. An oyster truck! Stop by for oysters and clams on the half-shell. I’ll be the blonde woman loitering outside, waiting like a seagull for leftovers.
4. Beer BQ Pulled Pork Sliders
Oh, Noah’s on the Road. I could write a sonnet about Noah’s tacos, salads and sliders. Instead, I’ll just tell you to save room for their Beer BQ Pulled Pork Sliders, served with coleslaw on a Martin’s bun. Farm-to-food–truck done right.
Yes way, rosé! Wainscott Main will be at our Derby, pouring red, white and rosé. Be sure to stop by for a sip and to say hi to Wainscott Main’s own Chimene Macnaughton. She knows her stuff (and her stuff is, always, excellent).
