Vernalicious Review

Who doesn't love a good food truck? For those of you who scoff at at these modern masterpieces, you've been living under a rock. And for the cynics who believe a food truck cannot possibly be sanitary - did you know that they tend to be cleaner than most brick-and-mortar restaurants?

At times, I wish I lived in West Philly, which tends to hoard all the food truck action. Luckily for me though, Love Park usually offers the space to host two food trucks at a time. Check out @PhilaParkandRec - they do a great job keeping everyone posted!

On a recent Saturday afternoon, I decided to stop by and check out Vernalicious, which was parked on the southwest corner of the park. Since 2011, they have been offering quite the eclectic menu. On this particular day, offerings ranged from grilled cheese to Bahn Mi!

Pulled Pork Grilled Cheese ($8.50)

This grilled cheese contained pulled pork that was juicy and succulent. The BBQ was sweet, but tangy. The melted cheese immersed itself through the sandwich, but for me - it was the bread that really shined. Buttered crisp, yet somehow light ... this bread was nicely thick, but not enough to detract from the meat of the matter, if you will. This sandwich tends to be a bit on the sweet side, but that's no problem. As you can see to the right of my sandwich and below - hot sauce is readily available!

They've got all types from Siracha to Cholula. I chose the latter and that worked fine - it wasn't overpowering and did not detract from the pulled pork grilled cheese at all.

I wish I had the stomach for more (I had previously eaten), but rest assured, I'll be back! Be sure to follow them @vernalicious1 on Twitter.
