Supa Dupa Food Truck Review - A Nacho Revolution at WinterFest in Ledyard! | Supa Dupa Food Truck
Becky Brennan, 12/31/2023

At WinterFest in Ledyard, I had the pleasure of discovering the Supa Dupa Food Truck, and what an incredible find it was! The highlight of my culinary adventure? Their mouth-watering Cheeseburger Nachos. Envision a generous pile of tortilla chips, each one perfectly crisp and ready to carry an impressive load of toppings. But it's not just the quantity that's impressive; it's the top-notch quality of each ingredient that elevates this dish. Every mouthful was a symphony of flavors, blending traditional cheeseburger elements like melted cheese, savory ground beef, ripe tomatoes, and crisp lettuce. But the real game-changer was the generous dollop of their special burger sauce. This isn't just a condiment; it's the soul of the dish, binding all the flavors together in a delectable, saucy union. What really sets these nachos apart is their integrity. Where many nacho dishes fall into a soggy abyss, here, each ingredient retains its distinct texture and flavor, offering a satisfying crunch with each bite. The Cheeseburger Nachos from Supa Dupa Food Truck are more than just a meal; they're a culinary revelation. Packed with flavor and made with love, they stand as a shining example of the innovative and passionate cooking that this food truck brings to the street food scene of Ledyard. Absolutely delicious and an experience to remember!

A Memorable Celebration at Ibiza Restaurant, Hamden with Becky my Hometown Explorer | Ibiza Restaurant Hamden
Jason Card, 12/02/2023

Our visit to Ibiza Restaurant in Hamden was a feast not just for the taste buds, but for the soul. It was here that Becky and I chose to celebrate a pivotal moment – the launch of our BISTRO BUDDY app on the iPhone. This Spanish gem provided the perfect ambiance for our special occasion. A Flavorful Beginning Our evening began with an array of delectable starters. The Costilla de res (Beef Short Ribs) melted in our mouths, perfectly paired with creamy mashed potatoes. The Croquetas de hongos (Mushroom croquettes) and Aguacate frito relleno (Fried avocado stuffed with beef) were bursting with flavor, setting the tone for our celebration. The Queso frito (Fried cheese) brought a comforting and joyous element to our table. Celebratory Sangria Our toast to the success of BISTRO BUDDY was marked with glasses of exquisite White Wine Sangria. Its refreshing and zesty flavor was a perfect representation of our celebratory spirits. Main Courses That Stole the Show The highlight of the evening was the main course. The Pierna de cordero (Lamb Shank) and Pork Ossobuco, both accompanied by mashed potatoes and bathed in their own juices, were a culinary delight. Each dish mirrored our journey with BISTRO BUDDY – rich, fulfilling, and utterly satisfying. They were so enticing that we joyfully indulged, savoring every bite. Savoring Every Moment In fact, the main courses were so captivating that we found ourselves fully immersed in the flavors, leaving no room for dessert. Each dish not only filled our stomachs but also our hearts with joy and pride. It was a testament to the hard work and dedication that went into our app. An Evening of Gastronomic Indulgence As Becky and I reflected on our journey, it became clear that the evening at Ibiza was more than a meal; it was a celebration of our dreams turning into reality. The ambiance, the exquisite Spanish cuisine, and our shared excitement made it a night to remember. Leaving Ibiza Restaurant, we were not just full in our stomachs but also brimming with happiness and gratitude for our journey. For those looking to celebrate their personal or professional milestones, Ibiza Restaurant offers a culinary experience that perfectly complements the spirit of any celebration. #IbizaRestaurantReview #BISTROBUDDYSuccess #iPhoneAppLaunch #CulinaryCelebration #HamdenDining #SpanishFlavors

A Taste of Puerto Rican Delights: My Flavorful Journey at El Bori Food Truck | El Bori
Becky Brennan, 12/31/2023

I had the pleasure of visiting El Bori Food Truck at the last food truck festival of the season. This hidden gem offers a delightful array of dishes, but two in particular caught my taste buds by surprise. El Bori Bread: This isn't your average bread; it's a fried dough extravaganza, generously filled with chicken and drizzled with chipotle aioli and El Bori's signature sauce. The result? A delicious and savory experience that tantalizes the palate. The sauces strike a perfect balance between spicy and sweet, enhancing the tender, well-seasoned chicken nestled within. Each bite is a harmonious blend of flavors that makes you crave more. Fried Chicken with Rice and Beans, and Sweet Plantains: El Bori Food Truck takes a classic dish and elevates it to new heights. The chicken, tender at its core, is encased in a crispy, golden crust - fried to absolute perfection. It's a delightful contrast of textures that's both satisfying and indulgent. The rice is cooked to perfection, offering a comforting base to the meal. And the sweet plantains? They're the cherry on top, adding a subtle sweetness that complements the savory components beautifully. El Bori Food Truck is more than just a food truck; it's a culinary journey worth taking. Whether you're a local or just passing through, make sure to give this place a try. You won't be disappointed!

Innovative twist on a breakfast classic. | Fire On The Mountain Smokehouse
Becky Brennan, 12/31/2023

My visit to Fire on the Mountain Smokehouse was not just a culinary delight, but also a journey into a cozy, welcoming atmosphere that made the experience all the more memorable. The Smoked Philly Cheese Steak Benny, the star of my meal, was a brilliant reinvention of the classic breakfast, featuring thinly shaved, richly smoked steak, coupled with a vibrant mix of onions, peppers, and mushrooms. Resting atop perfectly toasted English muffins were two exquisitely poached eggs, their yolks tenderly oozing out, mingling with the steak and vegetables. The American cheese hollandaise sauce was a stroke of genius, adding a creamy, cheesy depth that perfectly complemented the smokiness of the steak, elevating the dish into a harmonious blend of flavors. But what truly set this dining experience apart was the atmosphere of Fire on the Mountain. The place exuded a cozy charm, with an ambiance that felt like a warm embrace. The staff added to this welcoming feel with their exceptional friendliness, making me feel right at home from the moment I stepped in. Their attentive service and genuine warmth amplified the pleasure of the meal. The Smoked Philly Cheese Steak Benny at Fire on the Mountain Smokehouse is a must-try not only for its culinary brilliance but also for the delightful dining environment they've cultivated. It's a place where the food is matched by the heartwarming experience, making every visit a moment to cherish.

A Delightful Culinary Experience with Scatz Catering | Scatz Catering Group
Becky Brennan, 12/31/2023

As a food enthusiast, I am always on the lookout for unique and flavorful dishes, and Scatz Catering's offerings at various events have consistently exceeded my expectations. My gastronomic journey with them began with their Twisted Philly Truck and culminated in the indulgent pleasures of their Holy Smokes dish. Twisted Island Philly: This dish is a brilliant twist on the classic Philly cheesesteak. It is expertly crafted, loaded with succulent steak that's both savory and spicy, tickling the taste buds in the most delightful way. The balance of flavors and the quality of the meat make this a standout dish that I would recommend to anyone seeking a hearty and satisfying meal. Tacos at the New England Taco Festival: Scatz Catering's tacos are a revelation. The chicken is perfectly spiced, and the sweet mango salsa adds an exotic touch that elevates the dish to a new level. The mango salsa is not just an accompaniment; it's the soul of the taco, creating a harmonious blend of spicy and sweet flavors that dance on the palate. Holy Smokes - BBQ Pulled Pork with Mac and Cheese: This dish is comfort food at its finest. The BBQ pulled pork is tender and packed with flavor, melting in the mouth with every bite. It pairs wonderfully with the rich and creamy mac and cheese, creating a symphony of tastes and textures. The pork and mac and cheese complement each other perfectly, offering a fulfilling and deeply satisfying culinary experience. Scatz Catering's diverse range of dishes offers something for everyone. Their ability to balance flavors and textures is commendable, making them a must-try for anyone looking for high-quality, delicious catering options. Whether you're a fan of spicy, savory, or sweet dishes, Scatz Catering has you covered with their expertly prepared, mouth-watering creations.

Paradise Found: A Foodie's Experience at Paradise Island Food Truck | Paradise Island Food Truck
Becky Brennan, 12/31/2023

As soon as I approached the vibrant and inviting Paradise Island Food Truck, I knew I was in for a treat. The aroma of grilled meats and spices filled the air, promising a delightful culinary experience. Kebabs (Chicken and Beef): These kebabs were nothing short of spectacular. Both the chicken and beef were seasoned with a masterful blend of spices that tantalized the taste buds. The meat was grilled to absolute perfection, striking a delicate balance between juicy tenderness and a lightly charred exterior. Each bite was a harmonious symphony of flavors. Empanada (Steak and Cheese): The empanada was a revelation. Piping hot and freshly deep-fried, its golden crust broke open to reveal a generous filling of tender, succulent steak and lusciously creamy cheese. The combination of the flaky pastry with the rich and hearty filling was an absolute delight. Piña Colada: This drink was a tropical escapade in a cup. Sweet, creamy, and freshly made, it provided a refreshing and indulgent escape. The balance of pineapple and coconut flavors was spot on, creating a beverage that was both invigorating and soothing.

Summer of Sweetness with Mooriah's Ice Cream Truck | Mooriah'S Ice Cream
Becky Brennan, 12/31/2023

Last summer, I had the delightful opportunity to visit Mooriah's Ice Cream Truck at several food truck festivals. Each encounter with this mobile dessert haven was a memorable part of my summer. Mooriah's is not just any ice cream truck; it's a culinary adventure on wheels. The star of my experiences was their chocolate ice cream. It was an absolute treat - creamy, rich, and with a perfect balance of sweetness and authentic chocolate flavor. Unlike many chocolate ice creams that tend to be overly sweet, Mooriah's version was a masterful blend of flavors that catered to both the sweet tooth and the chocolate purist. Their menu wasn't limited to just scoops. Mooriah's also tantalized taste buds with ice cream cookie sandwiches, a delightful twist I eagerly look forward to trying at the next festival. Each festival visit with Mooriah's truck was like finding an oasis in the heat of summer. The joy of enjoying their ice cream amidst the bustling atmosphere of the festivals added an extra layer of pleasure to the experience. Their presence at these events turned them into not just food festivals but a true celebration of summer flavors. For anyone who enjoys the combination of artisanal ice cream and the lively spirit of food truck festivals, Mooriah's is a must-visit. Their truck is more than just a place to get ice cream; it's a mobile destination that brings joy, one scoop at a time.

A Slice Above: Discovering the Authentic Flavors of Zuppardi's Apizza | Zuppardi'S Apizza
Rebecca Brennan, 12/31/2023

When it comes to finding exceptional pizza in the New Haven area, a place that's often a topic of conversation is Zuppardi's Apizza. This establishment isn't just another pizza joint; it's a slice above the rest. Embracing the traditional New Haven style, Zuppardi's serves up pies that are nothing short of phenomenal. What sets Zuppardi's apart is their commitment to tradition and quality. Their sausage recipe, a closely guarded family secret passed down through generations, is a testament to their dedication. Each bite of their sausage pizza is a delightful journey through flavor and history, making it my personal favorite. The crust at Zuppardi's strikes the perfect balance between crispy and chewy, embodying the essence of what New Haven style pizza should be. Topped with fresh, high-quality ingredients, every pizza they serve is a masterpiece. Zuppardi's Apizza is more than just a pizza place; it's a culinary experience that honors the rich pizza heritage of New Haven. For anyone looking for an authentic, mouth-watering pizza, this is the place to be. It's not just good; it's my top pick in an area known for its outstanding pizza offerings.
