Lucky Old Souls Burger Truck

Philadelphia has one of the best dining scenes in the country. The city's innovative culinary creations span cuisines from around the world at price points ranging from "very" to "not very" expensive. Sure, pricey places by restauranteurs like Stephen Starr and Jose Garces offer delightful dishes. But for Philadelphia apartment dwellers on renters' budgets, the city's got another not-so-hidden dining gem: the ever-increasing number of Philly food trucks.

Because they're comparatively inexpensive to get up and running (their owners don't have to rent space in chic neighborhoods like Rittenhouse Square or Northern Liberties), food trucks can bring wonderful, adventurous recipes to market in much less time than it'd take to open a brick-and-mortar restaurant. Along with trucks offering falafel, bulgogi, and tacos there are mobile kitchens making confections like macarons and cupcakes and trucks vending organic, locavore fare.

Among the latter is the Lucky Old Souls Burger Truck, which offers burgers, fries, and milkshakes made from carefully-chosen, locally-produced ingredients. The star of the menu is, of course, the burgers. They're grass-fed and come with the toppings of your choice. The LOS Burger comes with bacon, smoked cheddar, sauteed onions, and a special sauce. On weekends, the truck offers breakfast sandwiches including the Breakfast Burger, topped with fried eggs, bacon, habanero cheddar cheese, and blueberry jam. Yes, blueberry jam; yes, it's delicious.
