MEALS ON WHEELS: BEST FOOD TRUCKS IN BOSTON

Mom always warned you about people who offer you food from the back of a truck. But Boston is becoming a hub for this kind of food truck madness. Food trucks are the perfect medium for traveling treats, spreading the magic of vegan cupcakes and grilled cheese from Copley to Fort Point.

Paris Creperie: The brain says no but the body says yes. Yes to a s’mores crepe made with nutella and marshmallow spread thick over a graham cracker crepe. Feel free to take a minute and let that one sink in. Where better to get your crepe on than out of the back of a truck? www.pariscreperie.com  @pariscreperie

Roxy’s Grilled Cheese: Roxy’s Grilled Cheese food truck, as seen on the Food Network’s The Great Food Truck Race, is “not your mom’s grilled cheese.” This awesome truck serves up crispy, gooey grilled cheese all around the city. The Green Muenster Melt, the pinnacle of Boston pride between two slices of bread, stars Muenster cheese, homemade guacamole, and applewood bacon. Get on this level. www.roxysgrilledcheese.com @RoxysGrilledCheese

Mei Mei Street Kitchen: The Mei Mei team never fails to bring a smile. When the line gets long outside of the truck, it’s time to pass out dumplings to everyone. The menu changes almost daily except for a few staples, including the Double Awesome, a super unique sandwich made with Vermont cheddar, local greens, pesto, and two slow poached eggs on a scallion pancake (it is to die for). The Chinese-American street food is locally sourced and organic when possible and always leaves your taste buds happy. www.meimeiboston.com @meimeifoodtruck

Chicken and Rice Guys: Nestled in between trucks at SoWa Open Market every week, the Chicken and Rice Guys always have a line. Their super-short menu makes it easy to make a quick and delicious decision. $6 will get you an aluminum take-out container filled to the brim with chicken or lamb, rice, and pita that will fill your stomach without emptying your wallet. www.thechickenriceguys.com @CnRG_Boston

Clover Food Truck: Between Clover Food Lab and now Clover Food Truck, the Clover team is taking fast food to a whole new level. Locally sourced and organic when possible, the small Clover menu draws a crowd day after day with its simple and unique eats. One of the most popular menu items, the Chickpea Fritter, is a sandwich in its own league made with homemade hummus and veggies inside of a whole wheat pita. www.cloverfoodlab.com @cloverfoodtruck

So it doesn’t matter where you are in Boston – at the waterfront, in Copley Square, Downtown, or in the South End – food trucks will be following you to deliver a delicious meal.

RUFF LIFE: THE 5 BEST DOG PARKS IN BOSTON

It takes a special kind of person to write a review for a dog park. These are the people who get up at unreasonable hours of the morning to take Bridgette the poodle on a nice long morning walk. These are the people who enter a dog park and rave about the wide diversity of breeds and the high quality of the poop bags provided. These are the people who arrange play dates at the dog park and insist that South End parks are better than JP parks.

But worry not. You don’t have to be one of these people, because we did the research for you. If your dog is craving some quality social time with other neighborhood canines, get out and explore some of the best dog parks in Boston.

Peter’s Park Dog Run, South End: At this point, we are deep into spring and your dog is probably stir crazy after the longest winter in the history of winters. Separated into two off-leash spaces – one for big dogs, one for little dogs – Peter’s Park Dog Run is perfect for feeding your pup’s spring fever. Pro Tip: Only street parking is available around the park, so be prepared to feed the meters. 1277 Washington Street, www.peterspark.org

South Boston Bark Park, South Boston: The highest-rated dog park in Boston (according to Yelp), this high-end dog park is great for pups of all sizes. Volunteers are putting in fountains and lights (no, not a joke), and the park includes a dog-friendly water fountain for when your pooch is parched. 1600 Columbia Road, www.sbbarkpark.org

Ronan Park Dog Recreation Space, Dorchester: If your dog is a runner, Ronan is the place for you. Double-fenced to prevent escapees, the 6,000 square foot Ronan Park is fully equipped with a water station and plenty of space for your dogs to play. Ronan Park, www.friendsofronanpark.org.

Brookline Avenue Playground: This huge fully-fenced grass haven is an awesome off-leash destination for you and your dog. You may run into some competition for space in the summer months, however, when the park is used by several groups for games and events throughout the week. Because this park is within the official Brookline Green Dog Park Program, be prepared to pay a $50/year fee for use of the area.

Beecher Street Dog Park, Jamaica Plain: A couple blocks down from the grassy Southwest Corridor and close to the Stony Brook T station, this JP favorite attracts dogs and dog-owners from all around Boston. There is plenty of shady space and a picnic table so you can sit down when your dogs are barking (Get it? Get it?). 16 Beecher Street.

No dog? No problem. Feel free to linger awkwardly on the fence, or employ the Try-Before-You-Buy method — bring your own tennis ball and play with every dog in sight. Whatever the occasion, dog parks are the perfect place to spend a warm spring day in the city.

THE KNURD SCREAMS FOR ICE CREAM: THE 7 BEST SCOOPS IN BOSTON

It’s a strange phenomenon, but every summer the food pyramid starts to melt a little and ice cream becomes the most important food group. A well-balanced diet requires that you have some every day. There might be times when you have to tide yourself over with freeze pops, the ramen of ice cream, but now and again you’ll have to treat yourself to a more flavorful scoop. Here are 7 delicious (if not so nutritious) places to try out.

Toscanini’s: Best ice cream in the world. At least, the New York Times thinks so, and the crowd that’s almost always around to soak up Tosci’s homemade flavors and atmosphere seems to agree. You might, too, after you try their Saffron Orange Cardamom. And for those of you who have moved on to the elite level of eating ice cream for breakfast, they offer Grape Nut (like cereal, but with ice cream instead of milk. Right? Of course).
899 Main St – http://www.tosci.com/

Emack and Bolio’s: Founded by a music lawyer who first scooped for the likes of Aerosmith, U2 and Al Green, Emack & Bolio’s knows that plating is key when you’re serving to impress. Enter the chocolate and candy dipped waffle cones. It’s a psychedelic scene, but I can assure you that the Reese’s coated waffle cones are for real and that they make a great complement for the homemade Bananas Foster ice cream.
290 Newbury St, 255 State St, or 8 Park Plz – http://www.emackandbolios.com/

Christina’s: When the city gets too fast-paced, it’s good to have a cozy little shop like Christina’s in Cambridge to remind you to stop and smell the roses. Go ahead and taste them, too, and while you’re at it you can dive in to the rest of the herb garden. Fresh Rose, Fresh Mint and Honey Lavender are among the extensive list of Christina’s tasty homemade flavors.
1255 Cambridge St – http://christinasicecream.com/

Frozen Hoagies: While cones are obviously the choice ice cream eating method, sometimes wild alternatives deserve to be humored. You want to take a cookie, pile it with a healthy serving of ice cream, and put another cookie on top? Go on, Frozen Hoagies, I’m listening. You want to put Peanut Butter Banana ice cream between two Nutella cookies? Hey, no argument here. Join the cookie counterculture and grab a sandwich from this truck.
See website for scheduled locations – http://frozenhoagies.com/home.html

[FoMu]: Keep telling yourself that ice cream isn’t so bad for you and, like magic, it will become reality. The other part of the spell involves heading over to [FoMu] in Allston or Jamaica Plain, where the ice cream is all natural and free of dairy and refined sugar. But this is no magic trick (it’s no illusion, either). There really is such a thing as vegan ice cream, and it really does come in flavors like Thai Chili Peanut and creamy Avocado. And it really does taste good.
481 Cambridge St or 617 Centre St – http://www.fomuicecream.com/

Lizzy’s: Tucked into a little shop just off Harvard Square, Lizzy’s might be hard to spot if the cow on the roof didn’t look so friendly and inviting. But there’s nothing more welcoming than the taste of their Charles River Crunch, made of dark chocolate, toffee and walnuts. If you’re ready to spice things up, try the Mango sorbet. They make it with habanero peppers.
29 Church St – http://www.lizzysicecream.com/

J.P. Licks: Basically, it comes down to this: if you are anywhere in the Boston and find yourself craving rich, creamy, freshly-churned ice cream, you’re probably not far from a J.P. Licks. It’s a Boston staple with ten different locations in and around the city, each one full of enough flavor and topping options to satisfy whatever strange form your craving has taken on. June’s options include Fresh Strawberry Rhubarb and an intriguing Candied Ginger.
