Boston vs. NYC Food Truck Battle To be Held on Saturday

The Oct. 13 battle will pit seven food trucks from Boston against ones from New York City.

If you love food and you hate New York, you're going to want to head downtown this weekend for the first ever Boston vs. New York City Food Truck Throwdown. 

The daylong competition pits seven food trucks from Boston against seven food trucks from New York City as contestants vie for the title of Best Food Truck. The idea for the event came from Sara Ross, owner of Kickass Cupcakes, and is supported from the city of Boston, Boston Mayor Thomas Menino, and the Boston food truck community.

In addition to the food, of course, there will be live music and celebrity judges. Admission to the event is free but sampling any of the food will cost you.

Boston Contenders include: Bon MeKickass CupcakesLobsta LoveMei Mei Street KitchenRoxy’s Grilled CheeseStaff Meal and Cookie Monstah.

Bon Me has been a frequent visitor to the Loring-Greenough House and if you attended the JP Music Festival, Roxy's Grilled Cheese was there.

NYC will be represented by Bian DangBig D’s GrubFishing ShrimpMike ‘N Willie’sThe Munchie MobileNuchas and Wafels & Dinges.

The festival will take place on Saturday from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. in Dewey Square in Boston. From JP, take the orange line to Downtown Crossing and walk to the portion of the Greenway that's opposite South Station. (Or maybe bike to burn off they calories you'll be packing in!)
