FOOD.

Sometimes you live in a city for so long that you neglect to pay attention to the fun activities in your area. For the longest time, I was so hellbent on trying to leave North Carolina that I didn’t take notice of the hidden treasures that were just around the corner.

First on my list: The Raleigh Food Truck Rodeo.

The Raleigh Food Truck Rodeo is a food festival where local food trucks from across the state sign up to station themselves in the heart of downtown Raleigh and serve their delicacies.

You’re probably thinking to yourself, what’s so special/new/different about a food festival? Well, to each their own. For me, I was introduced to a number of new food combos and drinks.

But my sisters and I found it a little hard to move around the rodeo. Why you ask? Imagine three very hungry women surrounded by hundreds of food options. So. Many. Choices. I don’t think I can count the number of trucks we stood in front of unable to decide whether or not to veto said truck.

Below, you’ll find the lucky dishes that made it to my camera…and our stomachs.

It’s always a good feeling to do something that you said you would do. Sooo what’s next on the list?
