In the year since the food truck phenom took hold in Orlando, the number of mobile kitchens has grown from six to more than 60. Below are some of the more recent notable entries on the vittle van scene.  Offerings are in the $3 to $8 range, and menus and locations change often, so check each truck’s Twitter stream for updates.

Chef: Alex Flores

Trained chef Flores, owner of the Half Full Coffee House in DeLand, took inspiration from Miami’s over-the-top truck scene for his colorful coach. The GBD (golden brown and delicious) balls feature roasted chicken and saucy rice wrapped in a deep-fried crust for a new take on arroz con pollo.
