As we gear up for TheDailyCity.com Food Truck Bazaar at the end of the month, a new truck is rolling into place today and taking a spot on a downtown Orlando corner. And this is one you’re going to want to check out.
Big Wheel Provisions has been known to local foodies for some time, especially those who visit the Audubon Park Community Market on Monday nights. That’s where BWP owner Tony Adams sells his wares, which include charcuterie and myriad products made mainly with local ingredients. Now Adams has jumped on the food truck bandwagon in a big way, with Big Wheel Truck, a fully rigged rig that is a professional kitchen on wheels, none of which, despite the name, is any larger than the others.
Adams rolls his truck into its newly acquired permanent space -- or as permanent as it can be given that it will drive away at the end of the day -- at the corner of Orange Avenue and Washington Street.
For those of you unfamiliar with the current food truck craze, you need to think beyond the concept of mere hot dogs or tacos, although those food stuffs are certainly part of the food truck repertoire (and will be represented at the Food Truck Bazaar, March 29). But there is a sector of food professionals that specialize in, for lack of a better term, gourmet cuisine who are putting their food on wheels and taking it to the streets.
