First came the Good Humor Truck-Meals on Wheels

The trend of driving the food to you continues in the Maryland area-you remember as a child the excitement that was unleashed when those bells chimed on your street announcing the entrance of the GOOD HUMOR TRUCK? My favorite was the chocolate eclair. How much did it cost, .15 ? We'll, the 20th century continues the MEALS ON WHEELS TREND right here in MARYLAND!

But the catch is, to get there first, don't expect a bell or horn, but a tweet--yup-follow #CITYPEEK on www.Twitter.com or Fan CITYPEEK on CITYPEEK facebook and connect with the food trucks to be in-the-know of where they might be serving their fare day-day!

First we reported on a female supporting the SWEET TOOTH: Two summer's ago in June 2008, on a walk round the Inner Harbor, we met Catherine Hamilton, a chef/caterer/mom, standing by her Wagon she calls, Lil Miss Cupcake. We traded t-shirts here is so cute sporting her logo. Catherine takes her cupcake wagon on the road, to birthday parties, special events. www.perfectcupcake.com

Then, Baltimore based KOOPER's Gourmet Burger Wagon--enters the Baltimore mobile truck field in 2009--5 types of burgers from bison-veggie, available with drink and sweet potato fries, all made-to-order! From $8. @brgrwagon on twitter

 

Then last week@Juana Burrito Baltimore truck announced,opening their er, shingle in April 2010.YOU GO GIRL!--watch for a new wagon hosting fresh MEALS ON WHEELS--Welcome to Baltimore JUANA Burrito Wagon. http://juanaburrito.com/ Freshly wrapped burritos to hit the pavements in the next month planning via website says opening end of March or April. @juanaburrito on twitter

And, drumroll please---The latest is this week which we read about is Restaurateur Jordan Naftel, well-known from Jordon's Steakhouse, announces, on twitter, his @GrilledCaesar truck coming soon to Howard County area! Jordan closed his Ellicott City restaurant on the Main Street, in the core of the town last year. We knew he would resurface and what better than re-emerge with his famous Caesar dressing--which we remember oozes with garlic and creamy dressing. Also, enjoy the sweet smell and taste of creme brule offered on the truck! Am I dreaming? Creme Brule on wheels? Yes! Both salad and caesar salad will set you back $10-16ish (you know, toppings, drinks, extras and such). Not bad for lunch coming catered, prepared-to-order straight to you!

Let us not forget that 2 decades ago, ANDY NELSON's BAR-B-QUE MOBILE FOOD Truck led the way to this industry--ANDY NELSON began taking its fabulous bar-b-q-from pork-chicken-beef, along with sides of cole slaw and beans, even cookies, could be found at parties. My dear friend, Keke-had the Andy Nelson truck for her REHERSALE WEDDING DINNER way back when! And, it was quite a novelty! To this day, we often see the Bar-B-Que truck on the highways en route to feeding a hearty crowd. We also follow @andynelsons on twitter.
