I was approached by the folks at Miami Auto Collection about putting together a Food Truck Event at their new location in Westchester. I thought to myself how the Miami Food Truck scene had changed in the last 2 and 1/2 years since that dusty lot on 65th and Bird Road which Food Truck manafacturer Food Cart USA has secured for use and I had named the Miami Street Food Court. Wouldn’t it be cool to get the gang back together? The folks who set the pace for that 1st year before Food Trucks who’s idea of original cuisine was a frozen burger and fries for $9 (those mother f’ers) started showing up. Unfortunately, The Fish Box retired from active duty earlier this year which means the original line up can not be reproduced.
Chef Richard Hales (Sakaya Kitchen & Dim Ssam a Gogo) suggested I replace them with Jefe’s Original Fish Taco & Burgers in the line-up. It really was a great idea because back then, Jefe’s wanted to get in on the Tuesday Nights at the original Miami Street Food Court and when he couldn’t/wouldn’t/wasn’t allowed to (depends on who you talk to), he ended up creating the B.T.T.R. (Biscayne Triangle Truck Roundup). The acronym was important because it was used to tweet how it was B.T.T.R. or better than any other Food Truck Event going on that night. Twitter battles ensued between both sides over it. Eventually the location on 65th and Bird Road was closed down by code enforcement and all the trucks moved into the B.T.T.R. which flourished into an event that set the bar for Food Truck Events in Miami, but that’s a story for another day.
