Most Instagrammed food trucks in Southwestern Connecticut
Food trucks and food pics are both trendy on their own–but we took a look at them together.
We scoured Instagram to see which southwestern Connecticut food trucks get the most location tags, and the winner is Eggz Food Truck at Holbrook Farm in Bethel.
Matt Stanczak, former owner of Danbury's popular Stanziato's, launched the mobile farm fresh kitchen Eggz. It focuses on breakfast and, you guessed it, eggs.
Hearst's resident food critic, Jane Stern said "I was surprised by just how good the food was and how ambitious the menu was for a mobile truck. For some reason I expected little more than an omelet, or a deli-style egg sandwich. That is not what Eggz is about; if you make the trip you will be in for a treat."
Stern ordered potato hash that was a "mosaic of potatoes, corn, summer squash, smoked bacon, fresh herbs and a poached egg sitting like a king on top," and Crack is Wack, two soft scrambled eggs, goat cheese, bacon, arugula and fig spread on a toasted brioche.
It seems like breakfast trucks seem to be most on trend. The Brunch Box and the Tasty Yolk also get a lot of love in Instagram. In fact, The Tasty Yolk breakfast truck was recently named among the 100 best food trucks in the country.
The Tasty Yolk recently won Connecticut Magazine's 2017 Reader's Choice award for best food truck, and Yelp reviewers would agree. With a 4.5 star ratings, the famed gourmet truck is on Yelp's list of best Lower Fairfield food trucks.
"Customers turn into regulars. They bring their families, refer their friends and it's like a phenomenon," Tasty Yolk co-owner Michael Bertanza told Hearst in 2017.
His breakfast burritos and egg, steak and cheese sandwiches range from $4 to $6. "They are actually getting to know their chef. They feel like they're at the cutting edge of something new, that they've found something great that no one knows about."
