By Patrick HiegerAs of late, the biggest food news coming out of Brazil other than Jamie Oliver putting his foot deep into his mouth is the exploding new trend of food trucks. Just a couple of months ago the first-ever food truck park opened in São Paulo, and last week we told you about the brand new food truck guide that’s covering the whole country. Now, to sweeten the deal, the first-ever food truck festival will take place this Sunday, August 17, and more than 30 vendors will be on hand.
This weekend’s festival will take place at Rua August 2656 in the Jardins district. The festival will run from 11:00 to 18:00 and entry is free. Around thirty different vendors will be on hand selling everything from shakes to cupcakes, Japanese favorites and a whole lot more. If you haven’t yet experienced the trend that is taking Brazil by storm, now is your chance!
