This year introduced a lot of ingenious but simple ideas for food and drink–like this weeks drink pick Radegast, a heated beer garden in Williamsburg–and this little spot of sweet tooth heaven, The Dessert Truck, which sits at 8th St. and University.
I went a few months after the buzz had died down on a chilly evening and ordered the seasonal pumpkin mousse for an after dinner surprise for Jim. The quality of the mousse, on which sat a heavenly dollop of toasted meringue, was great, especially for coming out of a tiny truck. The five dollar price tag only sweetens the deal.
The dude working was nice, almost verging on flirty (which I thought was adorable), and the menu he was peddling was filled with numerous alluring tasties like Chocolate Bread Pudding and Vanilla Creme Brulee. The menu changes with the seasons, so even though the caramelized banana waffle creation in the photo and the pumpkin mousse are no longer available this season, look out for other additions in the coming months.
