The asphalt was so hot yesterday that it burned right through his white sneakers. So hot that Willie Williams was reminded of the days long ago when he used to work the cotton fields in his native Rocky Mount, N.C. Williams, a Center City parking lot attendant, was one of the many people in the city yesterday sweating another day at work. The temperature hovered around 90 degrees, the National Weather Service said, and officials issued warnings about the excessive heat. The sun was bright, even for Williams, 49, who began working in the Carolina fields when he was 6. "You sweat all day long and that takes a lot out of you," he said as he stood in the middle of a sea of cars at 15th and Cherry Streets.

When Bill Hadden sets up his Center City food truck about 6:30 a.m. Friday, the sun will be just starting to rise. When he sets up at the same time Monday, it will be pitch black. All because daylight saving time - that change in our clocks that creates an extra hour of sunlight in the evening - begins at 2 a.m. Sunday. The shifting will not bring an immediate halt to a wicked winter that has walloped the region with snow, ice, and bitter cold, but it does signal the beginning of brighter days.

What to eat: Get your deli on at the "best meat on the street" truck. Hot corned beef, pastrami and brisket, grilled chicken, roast beef, turkey, tuna, Reubens, salads, matzo ball soup, knishes, kosher dogs, latkes. We could go on, but we're getting hungry. Suffice it to say, the menu is huge, as long as you're not on a low-carb diet. Details: In a city full of food trucks serving tacos and desserts - and, trust us, we have nothing against tacos and desserts, particularly in that order - Reuben on Rye is a nice change of pace.

USED TO BE, eating off a food truck meant grabbing a kielbasa or some General Tso's - or, if you were feeling reckless, a gyro. These days, thanks to the recession and the culinary world's teenagerlike eagerness to follow trends, Philly has a growing fleet of gourmet trucks that serve up delicacies like pork bulgagi and buttercream cupcakes. This weekend, old-school carts meet their tweeting newbie counterparts in our city's first-ever Vendy (as in "vendor") Awards, a competitive celebration of sidewalk grub.

What to eat : You really can't go wrong with any choice on the "Korean with a twist" menu, which is why Ka'Chi is one of this Truck Stop reviewer's favorite spots in the city. The details: The spicy pulled-pork sliders with pickled cucumbers (two for $7) hit the spot, but Ka'Chi also sells lots of Bulgogi (beef) and soy-ginger chicken tacos (one for $3 or three for $8) and rice bowls ($8), made with red cabbage and vinaigrette slaw. Get a side of cheese fries with house-made kimchi ($4)

"Healthy Foods, Healthy Baby" is a story about how to eat right when you are pregnant. Kim and Maria meet at the clinic. "At first, being pregnant was not easy!" Maria says. "If I smelled certain foods, I got sick. Some foods gave me heartburn! But, I try to eat right anyway because I want a healthy baby. I don't want to leave my baby in the hospital after I come home. " "I try to eat right, too," said Kim. "but when I go out to eat with my friends, we eat a lot of pizza or cheesesteaks and french fries.

A new breed of food truck is giving the ubiquitous cheesesteak a run for its money as the city's preferred curbside delight. The inaugural Philadelphia Vendy Awards, a culinary showdown among eight of the city's elite mobile food vendors Saturday in Northern Liberties, sought to identify and reward the leaders of that breed. And nary a steak was in sight. "It's been a long hard day, but it's been a beautiful day," Thomas Bacon, also known as Gigi, of Gigi & Big R Caribbean/American Soul Food, the victor of the event, said as he clutched a gleaming trophy.

THERE'S a certain cinema-stoked romance behind the idea of the ronin, the masterless swordsmen who roamed feudal-era Japan, willing their skills to the highest bidder as mercenaries with little to lose. Movies will have you believe that these stoic warriors, cast out into the wilderness by some evil turn of events, eventually have their day, adhering to a moral code that rewards the just-minded. Ryo Igarashi doesn't quite buy into it, and he's Japanese. "It's an unemployed samurai," said Igarashi, chuckling at the chivalrous connotation.
