Eat at Recess is a Food Truck that tries to put the fun back into lunchtime. It’s a callback to our childhood, naming sandwiches after school terms and bringing back some of our favorite school cafeteria foods like tater tots.
The owners of Recess want to remind us how lunch used to be when we were school kids. Cafeteria food, fresh air, playing games or on the playground with our friends.
The truck is one of the largest food trucks I’ve come across and comes equipped with an Xbox Kinect, allowing you to play games while you wait for your food and the motion sensitive kinect means you’ll be getting some exercise while playing too.
The highlight of the menu for me is definitely the tater tots. I didn’t particularly like school cafeteria food, but what I remember most fondly are tater tots. And it’s one of those foods that were readily available while we were in school, but almost impossible to find once I graduated. Other than finding them in the frozen food section of the grocery store, tater tots are pretty non-existent on a restaurant menu.
They offer three types of tater tots. Regular ones, remedial, and AP tots. Remedial tots are topped with a cheese and a spicy sauce. AP tots are topped with feta cheese and drizzled with truffle oil.
I really loved all of them. The tots were oh-so crispy. I saved some for the FH, and even hours later and a quick heat up in the microwave, they managed to maintain their crispiness.
We also ordered the gold star grilled cheese. From the outside, it looks like the typical grilled cheese sandwich I ate as a kid, but inside is filled with gourmet cheeses. It was quite tasty.
My brother ordered the Recess burger. I didn’t have any but my brother didn’t think it wasn’t anything special.
I had fun visiting the truck and I adored the tater tots. I’ll have to try out a few more menu items next time.
