Purple People Eatery – Miami Street Food Truck

Purple People Eatery Food Truck

I had been watching the progress of the Purple People Eatery for a few months before it finally debuted in mid February of 2011. If you’re wondering where such a wacky name come from, it’s from a 1980’s movie. The Food Truck was built in Mississippi during late 2010 and was a creation by Chefs David Shipman and Michelle Duncan. They refer to their food as “slammin’ street food”. As someone who’s tried it, I agree.

You can’t miss with any of the Blackened Bison Burgers but I’m partial to the Black and Bleu. My wife Marcela is addicted to their Pork Carnitas Tacos. If you’ve got room, order the Mac N Jack (their version of Mac & Cheese) with four Cheeses and Broccoli.

    We attended the debut and tried just two items, the Black and Blue and the Mac and Jack. The burger was solid, although it was hard to pinpoint indiviual flavors since it was pretty small. Next time, more pickled peaches please? As for the Mac, despite the many "cheesy" food truck options out there, I think this something I would definitely order again.
