Located on the streets of University City is the Sugar Philly truck run by Dan Tang, Franklin Shen, and John Suh. They are a dessert truck serving stuff like cake, creme brulee, cheesecake, and pudding. Sugar Philly was also recently one of the trucks nominated at Philly’s first Vendy Awards.
What they make that I really enjoy are the French macarons. They offer several different flavors depending on season in addition to a couple flavors they always have. I stopped by after work two days in a row to eat em. On day one, I got dulce de leche and milk & honey and on day two, I got chocolate ganache and salted caramel. The cookies had a nice crunch outside with a chewy inside. The fillings were delicious too. My favorite was, unsurprisingly, the salted caramel. It’s so friggin good. Unfortunately, Dan told me it’s a little tough to make the filling for that one, so that may not be on the menu every day. Maybe one day they will?
Currently, Sugar Philly is located on the corner of 38th Street and Walnut Street in University City, Monday to Friday from noon to around 4 pm to 6 pm. The time and location my vary so be sure to check their Twitter.
