The Broad Avenue Art Walk continues to grow each time I visit. At last the Friday-before-last's event the festivities had expanded to include the loading dock area of the former Sears building across the street from the main strip of bars, art galleries and restaurants. The loading docks were packed with vendors and performing musicians while the parking lot in front of them had several food trucks serving the crowds.
While walking past the Stuffed Food Truck I noticed barbecue and cole slaw empanadas listed on the specials board and immediately ordered one.
It was basically the classier cousin of the fried barbecue pie I tried recently at the A&R Bar-B-Q on Elvis Presley Boulevard. Having cole slaw inside the crust added a nice extra element of texture and I liked that the sauce was served on the side so that I was able to decide how much to use instead of having a large quantity of it included in the filling the way it was at A&R. It was cheap, convenient and portable comfort food; perfect for a quick snack while strolling through an outdoor festival.
