About Nashville Food Truck Junkie Julie:
I am a “thirty something” accountant who absolutely loves all things food especially bacon, burgers, and breakfast. However, I have a great negative disposition when it comes to pickles, ketchup, and mustard. I recently got into the cupcaking craze, but have no plans to go into the cupcaking business. I just like to make a single batch of cupcakes and icing from scratch to share with anyone who will try them (including some of the food trucks!). And in the last year, I’ve slowly started transitioning into a craft beer snob (Lagunitas Censored and French Broad Gateway Kolsch being a few of my favorites!)
I have no culinary training other than extensive experience eating other people’s culinary training. So my reviews on the food are going to be excessively amateur (and more fan-sided). There are things that I do not like to eat, but there are definitely more things that I DO love to eat. I have eaten out quite a bit, so my reviews on the experience will be a little less amateur, but still amateur. And in the instances of foods that I may not care for, I’ll make sure to have a guest reviewer present!
I started falling in love with food trucks watching Eat St. on Cooking Channel. And I was so jealous of LA, New York, Portland, and all the cities they featured. I wondered where was Nashville!? Then seemingly overnight a few trucks started to gain some attention here in Nashville. Mas Tacos, Grilled Cheeserie, and Riffs. And since then, Nashville has boomed with food trucks in the last 12 months. It seems like a new one pops up each week! And I have my definite favorites. And I can’t wait to share them with everyone! And with as much time as Eat St filming has been here in Nashville recently, it definitely appears as though our wonderful city is finally getting it’s due!
One small note: I am NOT affiliated with any food truck or food truck group of any kind. I recently was asked by the Nashville Food Truck Association to be their Official Fan Blogger. I did accept. My thoughts and opinions are my own. But this blog now has the endorsement of the NFTA which will allow me more access to the trucks to be able to get more behind the scenes features. It will also help streamline getting their weekly schedules so I can have a more complete Locations page! I’m very excited about this new phase for this blog! My goal for the blog is still to promote the food truck community to the masses here in Nashville and to spread my love of food trucks!
