Bacon and cheddar burger from the Burger Box Truck

The Burger Box, a Newark based food truck, makes a solid burger.

The crumbling city of Newark of Newark, New Jersey is home to a Rutgers University campus. I’ve been attending graduate school there for the last few years and finding an after work, before class meal is always a challenge. Wasn’t I happy to find a food truck offering up local, hormone beef burgers.

The burger actually came in a box as the truck promised. The shredded onion bits were a take it or leave it but mostly leave it affair. But the burger was juicy and loaded with pickles and lettuce and tomato.

Pork Tacos

Pork Tacos from the Taco Truck

Sometimes tacos are big and greasy.

I was coming home late on a windy spring day and found the taco truck parked outside the subway station. They had run out of corn tortillas, so instead of getting three smaller tacos as they usually make, I received to larger tacos wrapped in wheat shells.

The corn tortillas are actually far more flavorful, but changing up the usually routine is always enjoyable. These tacos were filled with pork.
