The First Annual Boston Food Truck Festival, located at the SOWA market on Sunday, was the place to be this weekend.  The line for the Boston Speed Dog (a zucchini-sized hot dog) was nearly a block long, while other food truck aficionados waited up to an hour for a taste of Fillbelly's chicken and waffles.  Other vendors, including Grillo's Pickles and the Taza Chococycle, were inundated with hungry visitors — including Mayor Thomas M. Menino.

Today, the City of Boston issued a Request for Proposals (RFP) for the 2011 Boston Food Truck Challenge .

We spoke with "Boston Food Czar" Edith Murnane and City Council President Mike Ross about Boston's new efforts to fill the city's streets with mobile food culture.
