A Magic Carpet Ride

Food trucks are a staple of Penn. As upperclassmen move off campus, they realize that a filling meal from a truck is cheaper and more satisfying than the slop they serve at Commons: thus, they ditch the meal plan and go wait in line for some economy-friendly eats.

While we all have our favorite truck, the undisputed king has to be Magic Carpet. The lines to get this vegetarian fare at 34th and Walnut are enormous, and the happy faces of customers as they eat are a testimony to how delicious everything is.

VendrTV agrees. That's why they did a recent webisode profiling Magic Carpet and owner Dean Varvoutis (yes, the brains behind your Bella Donna). Personally, we're loving the enthusiasm of the lady in the last testimonial. Kudos, Magic Carpet.
