Move over Mr. Softee, there is a new truck in town and it’s only for pooches. There was a full scale dog treat snack truck sitting next to Church Square Park on Sunday morning offering a wide array of regular and organic treats for your 4 pawed friends. It is called the Frosty Pooch it’s a wonderful new addition to Hoboken.

This was just tweeted yesterday from @AlbieManzo. Molly’s Milk truck will debut in Hoboken the weekend of May 18th according to this tweet….
If the food is anywhere near half as good as the picture shown below. Hoboken is in for one heck of a treat. Check back with Molly’s Milk Truck on Twitter as may 18th gets closer at @MollysMilkTruck. A few months back there was some buzz about the recent changes in Hoboken’s Food Truck Laws and them discouraging any food trucks from coming to Hoboken. It looks like that hubris once again is unfounded as a promising new business seems poised to make a go of it.

Location: Washington St., Hoboken, NJ 07030

This weekend TheBoken was able to get to try Two Pitas in a Pod food truck down by the river (no trailer park involved or Chris Farley). The lemon coriander Chicken Souvlaki was very good and the sides made for a very tasty and filling lunchtime treat. The fact that it was also a healthy choice is a really a double bonus.
The website for the food truck is www.twopitas.com and their Twitter feed is www.twitter.com/twopitasinapod. Their number is 646-543-PITA.

Mamma Marci’s foodtruck is the latest to hit Hoboken. I was able to try their meatball parm sub at the Hoboken Arts and Music Festival yesterday and I can tell you it is out of the world delicious. A friend had the same sub and came to the same conclusion. In fact she liked it so much several times in her haste she spilled meatballs on her skirt. Talk about an eating disorder! Mama MarciLook for the food truck down on Sinatra Drive.
Here is some info about Mamma Marci’s from their website http://mammamarci.com/:
“Mamma Marci’s is a gourmet mobile food kitchen offering a wide variety of fresh and delicious dinners for you and your family!
After 35 years in the corporate world, Marci decided to reinvent herself and follow her true passion – cooking! We all know there seems to be less and less time for you and your family to enjoy a home-cooked meal.
So, it took one big idea, a loving family to support her, a cookbook full of recipes and a lifetime of experience and Mamma Marci has brought her cuisine to you!”
Marci’s cooking has been making bellies smile for over 30 years, now she’s taking it to the masses!
“Get ready world – don’t take this lightly.
Food addicts beware – her cooking is no joke.
Trust me, I’ve been eating it all my life…”
- Marci’s son, Andrew
Hoboken’s popular food trucks have been getting national attention and this time it’s from animal rights group PETA.
Last week, the organization released a ranking of the top five vegan-friendly food trucks in the United States and Hoboken’s very-own The Cinnamon Snail finished in first place.
“We give The Cinnamon Snail—and all our winners—five big honks for helping to make delicious and animal-friendly vegan food more convenient than ever,” says PETA Executive Vice President Tracy Reiman.
According to a release from PETA, the menu at The Cinnamon Snail changes with the seasons. Popular entrées include the blue corn pancakes (with piñon butter and real maple syrup) and the Korean barbeque seitan (with chili butter, kimichi, and greens served open faced on a grilled tortilla). And apparently, for dessert, the cupcakes and miniature cheesecakes can’t be missed.
More details on PETA’s site as a well as a list of the other 4 trucks that made the list.
I received this email from WIlliam Imre on a new food truck offering coming to Hoboken soon:
A food truck unlike any other will roll out to New Jersey residents in April 2011.
In April 2011 a food truck will open in New Jersey, an island of healthy, sustainable, locally inspired street food in a sea of unhealthy, processed, conventional junk. Home by the Range, conceived by young entrepreneur and self taught cook William Imre, is committed to bringing tasty and nutritious food to the general public. William has two rules: Keep it local, Keep it simple! The menu will feature Italian-inspired roasted meat sandwiches/plates, seasonal vegetable sides and other treats from local businesses.
The inspiration and passion for Home by the Range come from William’s deep love of the cuisine of his heritage. His Hungarian ancestry, and all the home cooked meals of his childhood, have instilled passion for quality in him that he has nurtured through the years with cooking shows and classes in baking, Italian and French cuisine at the Institute of Culinary Education in New York City.
Home by the Range hopes to do much more than provide locally inspired street food. It hopes to educate customers about the importance of locally produced foods by providing an avenue for obtaining local and all natural food products from New Jersey’s, New York’s and Pennsylvania’s own rich and varied fresh produce.
Home By The Range is bringing family and friends back to the garden.
Home By The Range
Here is the menu for the food truck. Enjoy!:

The owners want to thank Gina, Dawn and Nancy at the Hoboken Department of Health for the great service. Home By The Range is committed to provide locally inspired street food which is food safe. Stay tuned for their Grand Opening announcement. Enjoy!
