As part of their "Best Places To Eat" feature, Food Network has named a Philly Food Truck one of the best in the country.

In a post entitled "50 States of Food Trucks," Food Network features one food truck from every state in America.  After looking at the list, you'll want to start planning a road trip across the country.  Here are a few that look especially good...

  • Holy City Cupcakes from South Carolina.
  • Utah's The Lost Bread, which serves french toast and bread pudding.
  • Papi's Stuffed Sopapillas from Massachusetts
  • Maine's The Lobster Buoy, which has a Lobster Roll that is supposed to be amazing.
  • Nana G's Chicken & Waffles from Georgia.

As I scrolled through the list, I was excited to find Pennsylvania.  I was hoping that it wouldn't be a truck from Pittsburgh and I was happy to see that Food Network chose a Philadelphia-based food truck called Authentik Byrek.

Food Network says that, "When Albanian native Arber Dhima couldn't find byrek, a flaky, savory-filled pastry, in his newly adopted hometown of Philadelphia, he learned to make it himself."  Now, Dhima serves his byrek filled with things like spinach and feta or ground beef and onions.  

You can find out more about Authentik Byrek here.  And if you were curious, Food Network named the Ocean County-based Romano's Disco Fries Food Truck the best in New Jersey.
