 Best Food Trucks in America 2013:-

     Food website The Daily Meal, “All Things Food & Drink,” loves its polls and “best of” lists, and the latest entry is the 101 Best Food Trucks in America For 2013. Not surprisingly, big cities ruled the list, with Los Angeles amassing the most winners, 16, followed by San Francisco and New York with 11 and 10 respectively. However, Big Apple fans will be happy to learn that their Red Hook Lobster Truck took the Number One spot in the nation.

     The Daily Meal canvassed 33 cities for more than 300 candidates, then added staff favorites, and trucks that had been “singled out for praise by organizations, and national and local publications, both in print and online.”  Daily Meal stated in its release, “This is a list of food trucks. While a few dessert trucks ranked, they were the exceptions. If you just make cupcakes or serve coffee, you’re not a food truck – you’re a cupcake truck, or a coffee truck. That doesn’t mean you’re bad people. Nobody disputes the challenges of creating innovative desserts for mobile distribution, but with rare exception it didn’t seem fair to include trucks serving shaved ice, slushes, and ice cream with those doing full savory menus.”

   Despite this wordy explanation, they did in fact include such trucks, and the sole distinction seems to be that if an ice cream has gotten a lot of press it makes the list. These two factors eliminated many nominees and left a field of 270 trucks, which were judged on three criteria: critical review, social (media) score, and originality.
