Food Truck Fest Day Empanadas, beer & more at Mount Loretto

STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. — The muddy aftermath of Friday night’s rain did not deter Islanders from attending the Food Truck Festival at Mount Loretto in Pleasant Plains.

The second annual festival, presented by ShopRite, was a hit last year, feeding a reported 10,000 hungry residents over the span of two days. Festival planners expect the same success this weekend.

“[This festival] is really a way to bring families together,” said Vincent M. Ignizio, chief executive officer of Catholic Charities of Staten Island. “And what better way to do that, than food?”

Eleven trucks — some coming to Staten Island for the first time — lined the CYO-MIV field, waiting to serve the crowd.

From empanadas to Italian ices, Staten Island families had tons of desirable dishes to choose from as the all-day festival commenced. Some festivalgoers brought out a football and soccer ball in between truck visits.

Live “munchie” music was provided by a lineup of local bands, including: Belt Parkway West, The Great Kills 5, Three Kings, Five Myles of Utopia and Moonset.

Here’s the master list of tasty trucks: Desi Food Truck, Kona Ice, Pompier Food Truck, celeb chef Rob Burmeister’s Culinary Renegade Wandering Kitchen, Empanada Guy, Cold Stone Creamery Truck, Hell’s Kitchen Star Chef Clemenza’s truck, Maddaleenas Cheesecake, Coney Island Pizza, Staten Island’s own Dom Tesoriero’s Mac Truck, John’s Catering, SI Sig City, Uncle Louie G’s, and I Got Balls.
