    Frantic for Food Carts

    On a recent trip to Puerto Rico I found myself diving into a rotisserie chicken that I bought from a van on the side of the road. At one point I looked up, salty, tender meat in my bare hand, and thought, “Why, oh why, can’t Boston accommodate my impulsive need to buy and devour an entire chicken?” Well, it seems that my wishes were sent to some sort of higher power because this week Boston unveiled the winners of what they called the “Food Truck Challenge” and now three food trucks are stationed at City Hall Plaza until October 28th. Fun roadside food for all!
