Slow Food Truck, Dania Beach, Fla: Serving Locals
The Slow Food Truck came to the Wellington, Florida, Food Truck Invasion. The Slow Food movement is all about promoting community by using local ingredients and encouraging people to slow down and dine with friends.
Chef and co-owner Zachery Schwartz, said his Slow Food Truck was not affiliated with any Slow Food chapters. It does however follow the organization's ideals of sourcing local seasonal ingredients.
According to their website, Schwartz and his partner Orin Bass are both graduates of Johnson & Wales University North Miami. They worked in Ft. Lauderdale and Miami based restaurants before buying their food truck. They source Florida fish, meat and produce from local farms. And they are both individual members of Slow Food USA.
I bought a Green Burger ($11) made with six ounces of ground Florida beef (from Clewiston), bacon, cheese, avocado (from California), cilantro lime aoili, and lettuce (from Loxahatchee).
The meat was tender, juicy, and flavorful but the bacon was too salty for me. I would have liked more lettuce and I could not taste the aoili.
