Tampa's Milkshake and Smoothie Bus - Smoothin' and Shaken'

by Guy 27. February 2014 08:30

 

Davied from Smoothin' and Shaken' likes to keep it real, real sweet that is! His all-natural, fruit drinks and hand-spun, ultrathick milkshakes will make your insides feel good no matter the weather.

         

Some of the past flavors have been Banana Man, Mango Lemonade, and Mudslide, a mix of chocolate, peanut butter, and banana. You never know what concotion he'll come up with next! If you're trying to bulk up, a scoop of protein can be added to your shake as well. His menu continues to evolve from one of just desserts to serving sandwiches, nachos, and soups.

He's a smooth-talker and has one of the biggest personalties in the fleet of food trucks we work with on a regular basis. I've gotten the opportunity to know Davied personally outside of the rallies, and he's a swell guy that has helped us out with other projects. When asked about his business, bus, and inspiration, he said, "We are family owned and operated. I work on the bus solo for the most part, but I get a ton of support from my girlfriend, Maria, and father, Bill and kids. I built the bus myself from scratch by removing every rusted seat and replacing with all the needed kitchen items. My inspiration is my family!" The next time you see his banana-colored bus on the street, do yourself a favor and treat yourself!

*The new yellow coat is looking great!

New Waffle Food Truck Hits the Scene, The Twisted Iron!

by Guy 18. February 2014 04:08

 

                     Elaine           &           Lokesh

This couple has decided to add their own twist to the sandwich. By making airy delights with maple-infused homemade waffles, they are pushing the frontiers of breakfast, lunch, and dinner. I asked how they came up with the idea and Elaine explained, "We wanted to do something involving a gourmet sandwich idea because we thought we could experiment with a lot of interesting ingredients, and that way, we could incorporate things we've learned along the way. The waffles actually came from a couple sitting next to us at a bar in DC, where we were brainstorming and grabbing dinner. They asked what we were doing with all of our notebooks and things spread out. We explained, and they said they had just gone to a food truck gathering spot, and the waffles were their favorite. We decided to meld those two ideas together where we could play with Lokesh's culinary side and my pastry background."


We heard about their unique concept when they took our "How to Start a Food Truck Seminar" a few months ago, and I couldn't wait to try their food at The Getaway in St. Pete. It's amazing what they can do with a waffle iron! They serve more than the traditional Southern chicken n' waffles. 


 Menu


Their menu consists of steak and cheese, grilled cheese, chocolate and peanut butter, and my favorite, the turkey burger with a side of waffle fries. I took a bite of their burger, and my tongue instantly tasted the sweetness. It was light yet filling and definitely satisfying! Are you interested in finding where they will be?

We Had a Ball in Ybor!

by Guy 10. February 2014 08:30


Hillsborough Community College is now allowing us to put food trucks on their Ybor Campus. You can find a truck at the Collaboration Studio, located at 1602 N 15th Street, on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. during the week. Students in the broadcasting department were on the scene this past Thursday to cover Jimmy Meatballs, a food truck based out of St. Petersburg. Jake, the owner of the truck, served up balls of all kinds. Beef, pork, crab, shrimp, cake, you name it! He can roll it any way you like. The next time you're in Ybor, check our schedule to find which truck is in the area.
