The title of this blog post might seem kind of strange. But if you are from Fort Myers, Bonita, or Estero, then chances are that you’ve heard of the legend that is the Nosh Truck.
My first taste of the Nosh Truck was at my old office in Bonita. They’d come to this huge office complex every Wednesday and I was so disappointed because they only take cash and I just never remembered to get cash.
Then, one day, I finally got it together and brought cash to work to finally try The Nosh Truck – and my mind was blown.
Where is the Nosh Truck?
The Nosh Truck is a food truck that makes its way around Lee County and is very well-known in the food scene here.
You’ll often see them offering a “beer & burger” special with some of the local breweries. As of the time I write this post, they are at Momentum Brewhouse in Bonita on Tuesdays and at Fort Myers Brewing Company on Wednesdays and Thursdays.
What’s on the Menu?
The Nosh Truck has a small-ish menu, and honestly, we’ve only ever tried a couple of things. But those couple of things are enough to make me enthusiastically tell ANYONE I know that asks about food trucks about the Nosh Truck first.
Here are the few things we’ve ordered and that I absolutely rave about each and every time:
Pad Thai Burger – OH. MY GOD. (If you watch Friends, you can imagine this in Janice’s voice.) This burger is the burger to end all burgers. I’ve had it at least 3 times and I don’t think I could bring myself to order anything else. It’s huge and includes a bunch of great ingredients – peanuts, some sort of sauce, a massive beef patty, and other things I can’t remember. This burger is 100% my favorite burger. Ever.
Nosh Fries – first of all, their plain fries are great as-is. But the Nosh Fries are in a league of their own. Topped with cheddar cheese sauce, green onion, cilantro, Korean BBQ pork, and Siracha, the Nosh Fries are a winner every time. If you plan to order this, I recommend sharing!
Any burger – I tried a different kind of burger at first (I think it was a plain one with cheese or something), and it was great. But then the Pad Thai burger changed me forever.
We haven’t tried many different items from The Nosh Truck, but that’s because these 2 things have been absolutely delicious every single time. Maybe someday, I’ll venture out. But for now, I’m going to dream of when I can have the Pad Thai burger again. Remember to bring cash with you when you go!
