Since 2005, mobile food truck vendors and diners have gathered to see who is truly the best in the business. As the premier mobile food truck suppliers of Brooklyn, NY, Shanghai Mobile Kitchen Solutions eagerly awaits the day each year. The event has grown tremendously since its beginnings in an East Village garage in 2005. This year, Governor’s Island played host to more than 2,000 attendants of the foodie-favorite event. The competition was close, but only one winner came out on top.
The Vendys are as much about the attendants as they are the mobile food truck owners. In fact, competitors are chosen from public nominations. Attendants get to see their favorite mobile food trucks duke it out while enjoying unlimited samples. At the end of it all, a winner is chosen by ticket holders and a panel of celebrity judges made up of chefs, city officials, and television personalities.
The Soriano Family of Tacos el Rancho took home the Vendy Cup this year with their delicious home-style Oaxacan food. But, there were plenty of winners in other categories. Cachapas on Wheels won People’s Choice for their chicken and plantain sandwich, Mr. Bing snagged Rookie of The Year for Bejing-style crepes, and Best Dessert Vendor went to The Good Batch for some truly sensational ice cream sandwiches.
