The hardest decision I had to make today was regarding food. I was struggling while trying to decide between a veggie taco, escargot poppers, and white truffle french fries. I was making this gourmet decision behind the parking garage of Downtown Bangor while standing in front of the Street Bistro food truck. Yeah, that’s right, I said food truck. I repeat:
Bangor, Maine has a food truck.
After much deliberation, I decided on the veggie taco made with cilantro, brown coconut rice, a fresh slice of avocado, remoulade, slaw, and mango salsa. I am very happy with my choice. Between bites, I couldn’t stop gushing over how good it was. I think I was in awe that I had just bought something so delicious behind a parking garage in Downtown Bangor.
While I don’t eat meat myself, I was assured by a fellow diner that the braised beef taco is definitely better than the pork taco, “even though the pork is so good.” A friend who had also spent today’s lunch at Street Bistro told me that the escargot poppers “were enticing.” Mhmm, I definitely hope to see those on the menu again.
I hadn’t been lucky enough to experience the joys of a food truck until today. There is this weird, fun, anxious feeling that comes with the anticipation of seeing what will be on the menu next. It’s great to see a new creative take on lunch in Downtown Bangor (especially when it tastes wicked delicious). So cheers to you Street Bistro! I will definitely be visiting again.
