Food trucks are all the rage in Kansas City.
WNBTv avoids food trucks, having once miserably suffered an interminable 48 hours of pain and degredation, the noxious results of a toxic ‘sloppy joe’ ladled up from the dark interior of a ‘roach coach’ at the old G.E.M. discount store.
Moreover WNBTv is not enamoured of eating on the street, with all its attendant sartorial dangers. 1 But to each their own, we often mumble with our mouth full.
However, the way the local foodies rave about food trucks, you might get the impression Kansas City was a food truck mecca, with the devout making long, arduous pilgrimages to the Midwest in hopes of cadging but a moist crumb from the ideal cupcake. 2
Unfortunately, nothing could be further from the truth.
We hate to be the bearer of bad news, but Kansas City isn’t on anyone’s list of Best Food Truck cities, much less in the Top 5 for North America.
That being the case, whichever roach coach one patronizes make sure they at least offer bicarbonate of soda.
