Take one of our favorite mobile eateries, husband-and-wife duo Tessa and Nick Mencia's Real Sorbet, for instance. After making frozen edibles for friends and family up north and paying their dues at New York's cult-favorite Van Leeuwen ice-creamery, the Mencias headed down to Dade to realize their sorbet-scooping dreams. All-natural fantasy flavors they've brought to life with our local produce include jakfruit, a boozy mango mojito, and – yum! — Florida cranberry.
Though the sorbet-savvy Nick, Tessa, and their eco-friendly truck are hard to pin down, you can check out their locally produced frozen desserts at their sidewalk carts. Also, if this post has you hankering for a taste, just mention it when you buy and receive $1 off Real Sorbet's take-home, hand-packed pints. Just keep up with their location on Facebook and Twitter. Don't forget to click through to check out the mouth-watering scoops (and Nick and Tessa, too!).
