Travel Blog of the Day: Behind the Food Carts

The internet is laden with blogs about travel. You don’t have time to read them all, you have to stalk Chris Evans on the "Captain America: Civil War" movie set. This column will allow you to sift through the schlock and get back to trying to celebrity stalk! Check us out on twitter at #travelblogoftheday.

This week, we are taking a look at culinary-oriented travel blogs. 

We have rounded up a handful of some really cool sites that when you get the chance you should check out. Today's culinary bloggers write from their hearts and their stomachs. They have traveled the world in search of great street foods, random coffee shops, and fine dining restaurants.

The first in this series appeals to my on-the-go mentality, focusing on street food.

Behind the Food Carts

Kim and Phil are longtime avid food cart/truck fans and were thinking about how much they would like to tell the stories about the people behind the amazing mobile dishes that were being created. They started in Portland, Ore. in 2011 and then moved to the Bay Area in California where they began exploring the street foods of L.A., San Francisco, and San Jose.

Gradual, their adventures took them to the mobile food scenes of Asia, Portland, Las Vegas and Hawaii. They also put together a book with over 100 recipes, stories, and photos from around the world.

The best part about their blog is in addition to reviewing trucks/carts or locations, they also bring great recipes to the reader as well. I will read them just for the recipes (one of my favorites is the Beer N’ Bacon Melt). They also break down a city by breakfast, lunch, dinner, and dessert as well. This is a site that you can really get your stomach behind, if you aren't hungry when you start perusing it, you will be in no time.
