The gourmet food truck is an idea that's really found its groove in the metro area, and it seems as if every trendy eatery in town has a shiny, upscale roach coach trolling the streets with better-than-average street-food eats. This is a trend that we enjoy, argue about and learn to live with, and I'm willing to bet they'll be around for a long, long time. Get our pick for today after the jump.
In Boulder, hot-hot reality show-winning chef Hosea Rosenberg's StrEAT Chefs food wagon serves up a rolling menu of street foods from around the world. And on Mondays, it stops at 5 p.m. near the dining hall on the grounds of the Colorado Chautauqua, 900 Baseline Road, for a kind of an international roadside picnic. Items range in price from $2.50 to $10 for fare that might include anything from a pulled pork sandwich to a Mexican torta or a Vietnamese banh mi , and beer and wine are sold separately. Aren't you hungry yet? Go to www.streatchefs.com or www.chautauqua.com.
