Brian Boulais has been closely following trucks in San Diego for a few years now. Food trucks, that is. First at La Mirage, then Vantage Pointe and soon-to-be at Deerwood Apartments, heâ€™s been leading the pack to get quality food trucks at his properties.
â€œIt doesnâ€™t cost a dime, the trucks love it and the residents love it â€“ itâ€™s win-win,â€ Brian says. After starting out with a few trucks once a month, the Vantage Pointe program now invites around eight trucks to come by twice a week. â€œThe residents walk downstairs and thereâ€™s a restaurant waiting for them,â€ he says.
Here are some of Brianâ€™s Favorites:
British-influenced gourmet truck â€“ four words you may never have seen strung together before. Modeled on a double-decker bus, this truck offers items like the Big Ben Burger and a â€œfish and chipsâ€ taco.
