Hey there, readers and fellow food-truck lovers! Some good news in the mobile-vending world: Fry Captain is back after a long hiatus, and that's a really good thing on a hot day like today: The truck turns out cold milkshakes (and also fries with lots of dipping sauces). And a warm welcome to the Ficelle, a new truck from Hawaiian chef Wes Tavares, who's serving sandwiches on Lyon Bakery bread. As always, let us know your thoughts if you check it out.
