Mad Girl Loves Korean BBQ Taco Box, Orlando


Korean BBQ Taco Box, Food trucks serving Central Florida and the Washington, D.C area.

Food trucks. Some look down their snobby noses at them, but if you give them a try, you may strike culinary gold. A couple of years ago, I was lucky enough to attend The Daily City’s Food Truck Bazaar (a wrangling of a dozen or two trucks) in Orlando. I immediately was drawn to this bright yellow truck serving up Asian Fusion, Korean style BBQ. Intrigued, I looked at their menu and landed on the short rib tacos. Galbi style short rib tacos, to be exact. That all really meant nothing to me, but they were kind to guide me through and order what would become, one of my favorite eats of all time. Number 8 on the menu, the Galbi Short Rib Taco Box.

It comes with interesting sides. A salad with peanut ginger dressing, an ultra spicy chicken wing, and 2 other Korean delicacies. Let’s get to the star of the box, the Galbi short rib taco. A nice size soft taco filled with a good amount of short rib meat and a helluva lot of flavor. I mean….explosive, rich, sweet and savory, beefy, juicy, drip-down-your-arm morsels of happiness. This is a one bite and you say…”OMG” thing. Moan your way through it. Get your own, because this is one dish you don’t want to share and give up any portion of.

Continually awarded with ‘Best Of’ honors, too lengthy to list. Find a truck, thank me later.

Yum Yum Cupcake Truck in Orlando


I made it to Orlando’s Food Truck Bazaar at the Fashion Square Mall on a hot Sunday evening. With 22 trucks in attendance, I had my choice of cuisines. My first pick was the bright yellow striped truck, Yum Yum Cupcake. I’m a freak for some sweet treats. Dessert choice, done!

Their menu of cupcakes is a nice blend of old school and new trends. I have been fortunate to ‘taste test’ about half of them. Yum Yum’s cake texture is so unbelievable, a nice balance of density, sponginess, and moisture. I spotted my next cupcake victim….a newbie, the Maple Bacon. They generally sell out, so I kept my eye on the place while I ventured around to find dinner.

An hour later I felt like a stuffed pinata, but if Yum Yum is parked right in front of your sweet lovin’ face, it is a must to take one to go! Waiting in line, I spied the sample still on the shelf so I knew the Maple Bacon was available and within my heated grasp. Order up and ready to head home with my edible treasure.

Later that evening…..I wasn’t sure how this was going to go down. Many trying to create the maple bacon combo, really miss the mark. Not Yum Yum! The second I had it in my hot little hand, the maple and bacon aroma filled my head. One big chomp, to get the maple cream cheese frosting and bacon cake together, what a dream! Real maple and bacon flavors. Not too overly sweet, just a perfect blend of flavors and textures I adore together. Next bite involved the piece of bacon atop this fab treat. OMG….was it candied? My sweet tooth is beyond satisfied! I’ll take my bacon this way anytime.

Awesome flavors available.  There is something for everyone, even a delightful Gluten-free Vegan Peachy Keen! HOlla!  for a list of where they’ll be next! Find them, but caution…they are addictive.
