Food truck fancy

As part of the Pikes Peak Region Small Business Week, the Small Business Development Center and Better Business Bureau hosted a Food Truck Cook-Off yesterday afternoon at the Norris Penrose Event Center. I co-judged the event along with Broadmoor chefs Adam Thomas, David Patterson and Mark Musial — but attendees also got to vote for a People's Choice Award. 

For our part, out of the 10 trucks competing, we awarded the following as our top three:
1) Mira Sol
2) Lucy I'm Home 
3) The Fiesta Grill

Here's what the public thought: 
1) Lucy I'm Home
2) Lil' Tin Can 
3) High Grade Catering 

And below is pictures of each dish made by each competitor, who you'll find around town, often at breweries. Definitely make time to go around and sample them all when you can; there's a lot of kitchen talent on wheels in C. Springs and a commendable mobile market.
