We're serious about food trucks in Nashville, and we're not the only ones who love eating tacos, grilled cheese and waffles (not necessarily together) on the side of the road. Honestly, aren't food trucks the real reason Twitter exists?

Eat St.: Recipes from the Tastiest, Messiest, and Most Irresistible Food Trucks brings your favorite street food home with the help of James Cunningham. Writes Cooking columnist Sybil Pratt, "If you’re already an aficionado of this new movable feast . . . join the street food revolution by sampling some of the more than 125 recipes included here in the privacy of your own kitchen."

The Juice Truck | Vancouver, British Columbia
Strawberry Coconut Smoothie

Serves 4

Ryan Slater and Zach Berman consider their truck the perfect blend of an experimental laboratory and an artists’ studio. They fell in love with exotic juices and blends on their world travels and thought the perfect place to experiment with—and sell—their juices was the streets of Vancouver.

They pack more vitamins into a single serving of juice than most North Americans get in a full meal. This smoothie is one of the simplest recipes in the entire book, but wow, does it pack a refreshing punch!
