The NYC Food Truck Fest 2018 on March 25 was hosted by the Grand Bazaar and the New York Food Truck Association to showcase some of the east coast’s most gourmet and creative food trucks. Featuring 15 of the best food trucks and vendors from states like New York, New Jersey and even Connecticut, the event attracted more than 3500 people. While admission was free, all of the profits made from this fundraiser would be donated to four local public schools in New York and help more than 4000 students.

The classic mac and cheese had a blend of different types of cheeses, but was very filling and heavy. Although the flavors came together nicely, the portion size was ultimately too much and the price point of seven dollars was a little steep. None of us were able to finish what we had ordered, and none of us were overly impressed.

The mac and cheese bites on the other hand were extremely delicious. It still had the expensive seven dollar price, but the crispy fried shell blended perfectly with the tangy mac and cheese. These were definitely one of the stand out food items of all the trucks, and patrons could be seen enjoying them around the whole event.
