The Boston-New York sports rivalries have tilted a bit recently toward our obnoxious neighbor down I-95.
So what? On Saturday, Boston won where it counts: The Food Truck Throwdown.
The daylong competition pitted seven food trucks from Boston against seven food trucks from New York City as contestants vied for the title of Best Food Truck. The idea for the event came from Sara Ross, owner of Kickass Cupcakes, and was supported from the city of Boston, Boston Mayor Thomas Menino, and the Boston food truck community. Ross gives a recap of the competition in this Herald video.
Roxy's, The Cookie Monstah and others frequent Huntington Avenue and Commonwealth Avenue in Fenway/Kenmore.
The festival took place in Dewey Square (most recently made famous as the site of the Occupy Boston protests.)
Boston won overall, which maybe isn't surprising considering it was a home game for the Boston trucks.
