The Philly food truck movement has lagged behind other cities, but it recently picked up speed, thanks in part to Philly’s many college campuses. Those campuses are where you’ll find Sugar Philly’s cult following. The truck was conceived in 2010 by recent grads to satisfy the untapped markets at Drexel University and the University of Pennsylvania. Among the many Mexican and cheesesteak offerings of the University City neighborhood, Sugar Philly stands out for its seasonal haute desserts—in particular, its macaroons, which come in unconventional flavors like blueberry lemon and salted caramel. They gained recognition outside the usual college crowd as a finalist in Philly’s first Vendy Awards last year. – AS
