2013 Vendy Award Winners


Saturday, the Vendy Awards were once again held in Philadelphia. The event brought hundreds to Penn Treaty Park where nominated food trucks competed for four awards, including savory, sweet, “Messy Yet Tasty” and the Vendy Cup.

King of Falafel, which you can find daily at 16th and JFK Boulevard won the big award. Lil’ Pop Shop repeated as the winner of the sweet category and The Cow & the Curd brought home the savory award as well as the Tide stain stick’s “Messy Yet Tasty” award.

    There was totally a mistake in the voting; people thought they were voting for the Falafel Truck from 20th and Market (Christof’s) but instead voted for the Falafel Truck. And it’s not a diss to the Falafel Truck people, but the line for the other truck was like 50 people deep the entire time. Theyve gotta make the distinction between these trucks clearer next time.

      One truck was specifically labeled “King of Falafel.” The ballot said “King of Falafel” as one option. If people were unable to note the distinction in the voting and voted for the “wrong” truck, then it’s the people’s fault. Also, the King won the Vendy Cup, not the People’s Choice (won by Cow and the Curd), unless your position is that the official judges couldn’t tell the difference between the trucks and voted for the “wrong” one.
