Celebration Park is a food truck park in Naples. A few minutes away from famous Fifth Avenue South, Celebration Park is the perfect hangout to try new food and cocktails.
Cuisine: all kinds (seriously, it’s hard to describe!)
Great for: date night, happy hour with friends, friends’ day out, girls’ day out
Kristen here. Celebration Park is another place that’s been on my radar for awhile. We live in South Fort Myers and Celebration Park is a bit of a hike from where we are! But the stars aligned one cold Saturday afternoon and I found myself finally being able to visit Celebration Park.
First of all, if you’re going to Celebration Park, I highly recommend going hungry and going with a few people so you can sample more food! I was surprised at the variety of foods offered and had a difficult time narrowing down what I wanted to eat. If you’ve been to Tampa’s Sparkman Wharf, Celebration Park is a bit like this but on a smaller scale.
Here, I’ll go over all the food I tried while at Celebration Park.
Deccani Bites – Modern Indian Street Food
I absolutely LOVE Indian food, so when I saw (and smelled) Deccani Bites, I knew that’d be a part of my smorgasbord of food. Deccani Bites’ was created by Chef Asif R. Syed. After doing some research for this blog, I found that he was on Food Network’s Beat Bobby Flay – which makes a lot of sense because this food truck’s food is Beat Bobby Flay worthy!
I wasn’t sure what to order, but there was a woman sitting at a table nearby that recommended the Tandoori Chicken Flat. It was love at first bite and probably my favorite food from my visit to Celebration Park.
Gigi Gourmet – Gourmet Street Food with a Twist
Gigi Gourmet caught my attention with a sign promoting their tomato bisque soup. It was a bit cold and rainy on the day that I visited Celebration Park, and tomato bisque soup sounded like it would hit the spot – and oh my, did it.
I ordered the tomato bisque soup with the goat cheese crostinis. I am a sucker for anything with goat cheese and this combination made me so happy. The balsamic glaze was the perfect touch and everything tasted SO FRESH. My mouth is watering just thinking about it. A friend I was with also ordered the grilled cheese with tomato and bacon. Naturally, I had to try it and it was also delicious.
Gigi’s North Pole – Belgian Waffles with Ice Cream
After eating such hearty and delicious food, I had to top it off with something sweet. Gigi’s North Pole looks to be owned by Gigi Gourmet. It’s the cutest little igloo type structure with ice cream and a waffle maker.
I ordered the “April in Belgium,” which was a Belgian waffle with vanilla ice cream, caramel, and sliced almonds on top. It’s all made to order. It was the perfect end to an amazing time at Celebration Park.
