New food truck Keenwah, CO parked in Civic Center Park
The next time you peruse the food trucks lined up in Civic Center Park on a Tuesday, you might notice a something a little different: quinoa. A food truck named Keenwah, CO is now roaming metro Denver, serving up dishes inspired by the seed (not an actual grain) long-loved by foodies and healthy eaters alike. And with a menu inspired by global cuisine and big flavors, even the health-food averse (or oblivious) will find something to enjoy.

Last week, when I interviewed Delores Tronco about the end to the Justice League of Street Food -- and the group's pavement parties that pioneered Denver's mobile food movement, the last of which took place on Saturday -- the initial organizer of those gatherings had this to say: "We hope that someone else will pick up the reins and bring another great series of food truck parties to life, but since this is the last Justice League party ever, we hope that we'll be able to go out with a bang."

After one last bash, the Justice League of Street Food will end the party

August 3 marks the finale for the Justice League of Steet Food.

Judging from the notes of woe on the Justice League of Street Food's Facebook page, where it was announced earlier today that the coalition's food truck parties will come to an end on August 3, there are an awful lot of saddened loyalists. "What a downer," wrote one disheartened fan. "What. The. Fuck." wrote another. "Why stop a good thing?" wondered someone else.
