This past weekend’s Festival of the Masters at Downtown Disney saw the debut of the Superstar Catering Food Truck, which we spotted last week hanging out in the parking lot.
The menu features a small array of meatballs, including turkey, lamb, and beef.
The truck also sells soda, beer and wine.
Anticipating the other three trucks to be out (and hence, more food tasting), Matt and I ordered the Lamb Meatball Flatbread Sandwich to share. Unfortunately, this was the only truck out.
Three fairly large meatballs came topped with dill-heavy Tzatziki (I also was tasting mint) and Vegetable Relish, the latter also known as diced cucumber, tomato and red onion. Some Arugula-Fennel salad was also thrown into the mix.
Eating this as a sandwich was difficult, so we relied on forks and knives to tackle the meatballs. The lamb was cut with a fair amount of rice, but it didn’t detract from the lamb flavor. The one aspect that stood out to us the most was the spicy heat level. While we both love some heat in our food, it possibly could be a bit much for some guests.
Our friend ordered the Turkey Sausage and Golden Raisin Meatballs and said they also had some heat. They were enjoyable though, and with the polenta they were served upon, it made for a filling dish. We also heard from Melissa and Danny from Hyperion Papers that they tried the Spinach and Feta Beef Meatball Sandwich and it too had heat.
For the price, the portion size was on par with “local” trucks; perhaps a dollar or two more for a comparable dish. The quality was there, and I wouldn’t hesitate to order from Superstar Catering again (which is more than what I can say for some “real” trucks I’ve visited). I’m looking forward to the other trucks making their debut.
On a side note, the truck could use some tables to stand at, like those that are put out for Food & Wine. We had to resort to a trash can to rest our dishes so we could eat them. Even some of the trucks around Orlando put out a couple ironing boards for their guests, so Disney’s calculated effort to join the trend would benefit from such a thing.
Have you stopped by Superstar Catering? What did you order, and what did you think?
