I accidentally found the most delicious street food quite by accident. I take a zumba class at the Coleman Center on Saturdays at 10:30 and the Woodbine Farmer’s Market meets there. I worked out for sixty minutes having had no breakfast and a light dinner the night before. Food was all I could think of and I spotted some kind of truck at the market.
We walked over and struck gold.
Riff’s Fine Food Truck, barely three months old, was parked just waiting to take our order. The menu is written on the side and is a bit limited which is how a good food truck should operate. This means everything is fresh and given its proper attention.
One of the owners, Carlos Davis preparing spring rolls. The service could not be friendlier. We love people who love what they are doing and are proud of the food they put out.
We decide on Caribbean Burger and Fish Tacos, two perfect choices. I had to try the lemon lavender curd which did not disappoint and the chocolate panna cotta was given to us to try. Both were good and just light enough to offer that something a little sweet, and unique enough to fit their brand.
Caribbean burger with grilled pineapple was spicy, juicy and filling. Mr. Spinach Tiger ate all of his and half of mine. The ciabatta roll was grilled and that sure makes a difference.
Outstanding fish tacos. Fruity, spicy and so fresh tasting. Again, they smartly grilled the tortillas.
Recently at a Street Food Meet Up at the Nashville Farmer’s Market, I tried a Shrimp and Grits from Riff’s. Outstanding.
Riff’s is at a different location daily. Friday is a good day for me as they are in the Cool Springs area at 106 Mission Court from 11:00 to 1:30. And, I’ll be sure to visit them again on Saturdays at the Woodbine Farmer’s Market.
