It used to be that food trucks were a place to get a dollar slice or a $2 taco. But in the past few years trucks have had a pricey gourmet makeover, and now offer everything from a $9 burger to a $17 crab roll.
"There's so many options, and there's organic good food, and it's great. But ... the portions are kinda small and it's kind of ridiculous to charge eight bucks for just two tiny tacos," said Carolyn Bahar, a design intern living in New York City, about a visit to Smorgasburg, a weekend flea market for foodies in the Williamsburg section of Brooklyn.
Even though some of the Smorgasburg offerings were a bit pricey, that hasn't deterred Bahar.
"It kind of comes with the scene," she said. "You have to expect it."
