In our Best of 2009 coverage, we wanted to know what your favorite food trends of the year were. There were more faddish foods than we could include, but among the most hyped of the year were hot dogs, nose-to-tail cooking, fried chicken, and any dish bearing an egg. Ultimately, the street food sensation came out on top with a fifth of your votes — although recession vegetarianism, with its environmental, economic, and health benefits, received nearly a fifth of the vote, too. We have to agree: while we're sick of hearing about food trucks, Twitter-happy mobile kitchens are often more experimental with food and are certainly more recession-friendly for customers and restaurateurs alike.
Share your thoughts on food trucks. Are they a fleeting trend or here to stay?
