Truck Stop: Sugar Philly

Posted: September 06, 2012

What to eat: Your sweet tooth didn't tell your legs to walk to this truck for brussels sprouts and fava beans. It's dessert time. Get your sugar fix, dummy! There's Creme Brûlée ($5), French macaroons ($1.50 or $2) and Crème Fraiche Cheesecake topped with a seasonal fruit ($5). Other desserts are featured throughout the year.

Don't miss: The cheesecake. Peach was the fruit this week, but it changes. Try a milk-and-honey macaroon. And the crème brûlée is "torched to order" by Sugar Philly intern Wyatt Earp. Yes, that's his real name.

Facebook: Sugar Philly.

Twitter: @sugarphilly.

Find it: 38th Street, between Walnut and Sansom.

Look for: Light blue truck. Red umbrella. Raining sugar cubes.

Backstory: Chef and co-owner Dan Tang opened the truck in January 2010, with the mission of "making life sweet one dessert at a time."
