Creating a blended family is hard work. New traditions go a long way towards creating something special, and Food Truck Wednesday, in the parking lot of the Four Oaks Church on Kerry Forest Parkway, has quickly become our tastiest new tradition.
On a recent humid late summer Tallahassee evening, we rolled into the parking lot in search of dinner. Mason and Julia were excited and hungry, and they tugged on our hands to hurry us along. Four food trucks were set up on this particular evening. After surveying our options, Kirsten ventured towards the Valhalla Grill, while the kids and I opted to try the new El Criollo Grill.
El Criollo Grill is owned by Geno Arroyo and specializes in Puerto Rican cuisine. Sandwiches, various meats on sticks, several side options, and mofongo were all listed on the menu. A smiling woman poked her head out of the window and asked if we were ready to order. Racked with indecision, I requested some guidance. She suggested the Tripleta sandwich, and stated it was the best item on their menu. I ordered one, along with an El Criollo burger with fries for the kiddos to share.
We took a seat on a wooden picnic table, while Mason and Julia played tag with a group of other children who were also there to enjoy family outings. Following a short wait, the food was ready, and I was handed two red and white checkered paper lined baskets. For more on El Criollo read the full review on Tallahassee.com.
