Mount Airy Street Fare

Last week, Bry and I made the spontaneous decision to check out the Mt. Airy Street Fare. It was possibly the most gorgeous night for a food truck festival and Germantown Ave. was packed with people, children, strollers, delicious smelling food trucks and the sounds of live music. We did one full lap of the street to check out all of our food options, Bry grabbed a beer and then we made our first stop for food. 

First I had to capture this gem of an outfit. I love me some leopard print and this guy totally nailed it from top to bottom. Then we queued up for some empanadas at Cantina Avenida.
Honestly, the empanadas weren't really my thing. The crust was too dry and the filling wasn't that flavorful. If you put some of their homemade salsa on there it spiced up the flavor a bit, but I prefer a more doughy crust and a flavorful meat-filled inside. 

After our appetizers, we made our way over to the Ka'Chi truck for the main course. We ordered up two orders of the Korean BBQ Tacos, one order with bulgogi and one order of spicy pork. We also splurged on an order of fried kimchi rice balls. 
I apologize for the crappy food photos, we were under a street light sitting on a retaining wall so it wasn't the best option for photography. Honestly, you're lucky you got photos at all because these tacos and rice balls were totally delicious. I was surprised by how much I loved the bulgogi tacos and the sauce options give you some fun combinations to try. 
During our digestion walk we stopped in to Mt. Airy Custom Furniture and checked out all of the awesome woodwork. 
This piece below was truly breathtaking, it's a replica of Manhattan and it's just so detailed it's incredible. Really everything that was on display was so beautiful and soothing.
Then my sweet tooth kicked in and I had to find my way to Zsa's Gourmet Ice Cream. We first tried Zsa's at the Manayunk StrEAT Festival back in the spring and I was dying to get my hands on one of their delicious ice cream sandwiches again. I went with the old standby, vanilla ice cream between salted toffee almond grahams, Bry switched it up this time and ordered the vanilla ice cream between chocolate chip oatmeal cookies. We both found a quiet spot on the sidewalk and entered ice cream sandwich heaven. 
On our way back to the car we stopped to listen to some Brazilian music and watch a Capoeira performance. 
The event was well-organized an a lot of fun. My only recommendations is that parents consider leaving their double-wide strollers at home. There's just really not enough room at a street festival to get that monstrosity through the crowds. 

If you're interested in any of the food trucks previously mentioned most of them will be making an appearance this weekend for the fall Manayunk StrEAT Food Festival, so be sure to check them out!
