In keeping with the food trend posts, I've decided food trucks should be the next topic of conversation. Childhood memories often include the ice cream man, and now these food-mobiles carry more than ice cream sandwiches, Fudgesicles, Push-Up Pops (a personal favorite), or those patriotic Bomb Pops. And though the concept is creative, the food is unbeatable more often than not, perhaps since most specialize in a certain something. One of our grad parties had a taco truck parked outside, and they were undoubtedly the best tacos I've ever had.
The Chronicle had written up Bernie's Burger Bus, so my mom and I decided to give it a try and my two oldest siblings tagged along. I've found that good burgers are rare (to find, not how they're cooked, no pun intended there). But this was one of the diamonds in the rough.
Bernie keeps it cute with his menu that coordinates with the school bus theme with burger names like "The Principal", "The Bully", or my selection "Homeroom." I cut the fried egg so I could taste the burger on its own but I may have to be a little more adventurous on my next field trip to the school bus.
The burger was perfect in size and cooked just the way I like it. I wouldn't write home about the fries themselves, but the cold homemade ketchup made the potatoes worth my while.
It's kid friendly as well; Ceci and Ana split an order of the slider burgers called the Pre-Kindergartners. And I think I just found their new spokesperson with that adorable grin.
Everybody polished their meal with only scraps...
and smiles remaining.
