Last Sunday I went to TREK Food Truck Festival in Nijmegen. I thought I died and went to foodie heaven! The moment I entered the site, I squealed like a child in a candy store. Luckily my dear husband wasn’t embarrassed of me, he knew me so well.
There were so many to see (cute, creative food trucks), hear (a couple of little stages spread on the premise with bands and dj playing cool music) and of course taste (the food and drink). I won’t rattle any further about it. Look at the pics I shot. Beware if you get hungry by looking at the pics, it is at your own risk.
These guys were clever, they divided the truck in two parts. The grill compartment was placed on top op the truck, diverting the smoke for the public. Simple but geniously thought!
Succulent burger from lean rump steak. Delish!
Monsieurs Croquettes for hearty savory snack.
Cone bread with various filling.
Soulfood! The deepfried chicken was to die for.
To those who were thirsty, fresh fruit juices, lemonades and smoothies.
Various artists performed in several stages.
This guy was patiently grilling the hot dogs.
Then I went to his neighbour De Pieper Mobiel buying …
Patatas Bravas (on the right). Spanish deepfried potato cubes served with spicy mayonaise. On the left is Sate (Indonesian skewer)
Gotta taste the sate. Verdict: It was good.
When life gives you lemon, make Disaronno sour. Disaronno is a brand of Almond based liquor called Amaretto.
This friendly bar lady mixed Disaronno sour for me.
And here it is, Amaretto sour!
Then I consumed this Salmon Temaki.
Yam Neua Thai beef spicy salad
Surf ‘n Turf burger
Artisanal frietjes met mayo (Dutch fries with mayonaise).
This eating feast was closed with good ol’ Poffertjes, Dutch mini pancakes sprinkled with icing sugar.
Poffertjes maker in action.
This is how Poffertjes are served traditionally, with a knob of butter and lots of icing sugar. This pic is taken with iPhone unlike the others taken with Nikon DSLR.
After reading this if you think I am a gluton, well I admit I am. All the food I captured above I shared it with my husband and some friends though. It was fun to sample and taste what the food trucks offered.
Cool music, delicious food, exciting sphere, good weather and fine company, what more could I ask? I hope I can visit it again next year.
