Chef is rolling into Miami.
Jon Favreau's new movie, Chef, will be released on May 9 and we can't wait. Basically, if we could custom make a film, this would be it.

The movie, which features a cast including Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson, Sofia Vergara, Oliver Platt, Bobby Cannavale, and John Leguizamo, is the story of a chef who quits his job at a prominent Los Angeles restaurant (owned by a crotchety Dustin Hoffman) to start a food truck named El Jefe Cubanos (Sorry about the grammar, but hey they are gringos)-- in Miami!

Tampa Wants to Break Miami's Food Truck Record: What's Next — Giant Guacamole? UPDATED

Will Miami retain its record?
A lot of world records have been set in Miami.

On October 11, 2009, chefs Michael Schwartz and Allen Susser led a group of high school students to break the Guinness World Record for the largest serving of guacamole. The portion weighed 4,114 pounds, by the way.

And on April 20, 2013 the Magic City Casino set the world record for the largest parade of food trucks, with 62 trucks driving two miles around Miami before serving food to a hungry crowd of about 8,000 people. The event also raised over $1,000 for the St. Baldrick's Foundation, which assists children with cancer.

Now, a Tampa food truck promoter wants to break our record by attempting to organize 100 food trucks at the Florida Fairgrounds on August 31.
