Seems like every week a new food truck hits the mean streets of Baltimore City. Charm City Gourmet is one that showed up at UMB not too long ago. While most trucks serve straight-up street food, tacos, burgers, sandwiches, and the like, Charm City Gourmet takes it one step further by offering some more elegant items as well.
The first thing I sampled was the scallops with sweet cream corn and prosciutto bacon. I got four handsomely-sized scallops for $9.00 plus tax. NINE DOLLARS. Suck it, you overpriced scallop-scalpers! These babies were perfectly cooked (albeit a tad salty) and came with a super buttery creamed corn and crispy fried prosciutto chips. And it was served in a plastic martini glass. No kidding. There was even a little garnish of thyme. Hard to believe this was a food truck lunch, but it was, and a very satisfying one at that.
