Holy Cowabunga Dude! Totally Rad Food Truck Hits Fairfield County! Gnarly.

5 Apr

Update:  after a year of serving food, Cowabunga made some serious upgrades and made over the menu.  Check it out here!  

Sup dudes?  When you’re done shredding some waves you’ll wanna check out Fairfield County’s newest food truck, Cowabunga Food Truck Grill and Soft Serve.  Their motto?  “Surf’s up, so chow down!”  Chow down on what you ask?  We’re talking lots of goodies from the grill and lots of soft serve ice cream.  The truck is the brainchild of Benjamin Boger who actually started with his own ice cream truck and business in Miami, Ben’s Ice Cream Truck.  Now, you could imagine how popular ice cream is down there.  Especially when you party in the city where the heat is on, all night on the beach till the break of dawn (points if you get the reference).  One day he hit up the Food Truck Roundup and he was blown away by how awesome food truck food could be.  He joked that these aren’t the kind of food carts that he was used to seeing in New York City.
Inspiration hit and he knew that he wanted to create a food truck that would show off his love of ice cream, but would also pump out some great food.  He found a gnarly 1993 step van from a bread distributor, packed up all his things, then headed back north to his homestate…Connecticut.  And now, we have Cowabunga!
Ben’s first trip with the truck will be tomorrow (4/6/13) where he hopes to set up shop right near the Maritime Aquarium in Norwalk on North Water Street.  Follow the truck on Facebook to get all the most up to date information on where Cowabunga will be.  He’s also for hire (check packages at the end of the post)for parties, events, or any occasion really (well, maybe not a funeral, but hey, who’s to judge?).  Plus, he’s making things a bit interactive.  If you would like to see him somewhere, let him know.  He’ll try to accommodate you.  Plus, if you tweet or FB a busy hot spot to him and they do well, guess what?  You get a free order!  Cowabunga dudeeee!

      On his FB page he said he’ll be there from 1 to late afternoon serving the lunch menu. We talked last night and he said he was having some difficulty, though. Are you actually there now?

        Of course not : ) It was rather rhetorical – it was morning, therefore breakfast was in order : )
