With Mardi Gras upon us, Todd Price turns his attention to the food trucks along this year's parade routes.  UPDATE 2/12: Ian McNulty has also just added his latest food truck report from the parade routes. Each year mobile vendors apply to a lottery to nab a coveted spot. While there will be tons of vendors selling cotton candy, funnel cake, popcorn and ubiquitous fair-style grub, here are the more substantial food trucks that are worth seeking out along the Uptown parade route this year:

  • Cocoa and Cream: Nola "party food" at St. Joseph Street (lakeside of St. Charles Ave)
  • Crepes a la Carte: All things crêpes on Louisiana (riverside of St. Charles Ave.)
  • The Fat Shallot: Gourmet sandwiches from Chicago on Louisiana Avenue (lake side of St. Charles Ave.)
  • La Cocinita: Tacos, arepas and more Latin-influenced street food on Louisiana Avenue (riverside of St. Charles Ave) also a second truck  on General Taylor (riverside of St. Charles Ave)
  • Diva Dog: Hot dogs on Gravier Street (riverside of St. Charles Ave.)
  • Saigon Slim's: Banh mi, spring rolls and more at Ms. Mae's (Napolean and Magazine)
  • Taceaux Loceaux: Gourmet tacos on Laurel Street near Jefferson Avenue, but not for all parades. Check their schedule here.
  • Cajun Corner: Cajun cuisine from alligator sausage po-boys to boudin balls on Union St.  and St. Charles Ave. (across from Hotel Intercontinental)
  • The Cluck Truck: Chicken tenders, fried chicken, cheese fries in front of The Milan Lounge for Uptown Parades.
  • Foodie Call: Burgers, tacos, fries and more at Pearl Wine for Endymion. Will also be parked at Rusty Nail throughout the next few days (as will Burgers Ya Heard).
  • Burgers Ya Heard & La Cocinita: Parked at Twelve Mile Limit for Endymion block party at 2 p.m.
  • St. Clair Wood Fired Pizza: At Courtyard Brewery on February 12 and February 14.

On the boozy side of things, David Lee Simmons also offers ten new(ish) Quarter bars to try out this Mardi Gras including Latitude 29, Voodoo Lounge, Tiki Tolteca and more.
