A transcendent food truck experience today prompted me to write a post about the food trucks I have come to love since last writing about food trucks in July 2015. Here are my new favorites in alphabetical order.
Anchor End Pretzel Shoppe – Sandwiches on giant soft pretzels. Need I say more? My favorite from the short menu is the Dictator – pulled pork, pork belly and lots of melted cheese. While looking up the name of my favorite on the website, I just saw they now have a chicken parm on a pretzel – next time!
Fire and Scrape – This stand at the Fremont Sunday Farmers’ Market serves traditional Swiss raclette, which is basically melted cheese over vegetables. Maybe I could recreate this at home, but I love that a visit here smells and tastes just like Switzerland.
Kiss My Grits – This is the truck I visited today. I was tempted by the shrimp and grits, but I went with the pork belly and grits, and it was amazing. Will need to go back and try the other offerings.
Mo Pockets – This truck features very tasty Asian sandwiches, but it’s elusive…at least for eastside workers.
Peach and the Pig – I really like the pulled pork sandwich from this place, and it’s HUGE and well-priced. I was not a fan of the Brussels sprouts in the photo (they were barely cooked), plus the sandwich alone is enough for two meals.
Wood Shop BBQ – This place has grown on me as I’ve tried its pulled pork mac & cheese and its chili mac.
For the next three months I’ll be working at an office that has at least two food trucks every day, so I may be broadening my horizons soon.
