Find a Food Truck!

23 Sep



Food Trucks sure aren’t what they used to be and if you haven’t tried one lately, you may want to find some in your local area. Several weeks ago, I went to North Berkeley to explore the 10 trucks organized by Off the Grid. There is a calendar on the site with locations all over the Bay Area. It’s good to scope out what’s on the menu of each truck before standing in line for any particular one (some lines are longer than others–expect a wait!).

There was quite a variety of different cuisines, like Korean, Mexican, and Himalayan. One truck was offering Grass-fed Burgers, which was tempting, but not as exciting to me as The Chairman’s Bao Buns. We split 3 of them…2 baked buns (Spicy Chicken with pickled Carrots, and Coca-Cola braised Pork Butt topped with a Mustard Seed Slaw) and 1 smaller steamed Bun with crisp Pork Belly and Turmeric Daikon Radishes. The flavors and quality of ingredients were amazing!



Last week I went again and tried Hapa SF (serving up local and sustainable Filipino food with a California twist). I ordered Lumpia and an Adobo brined Chicken Bahn Mi Burrito, with Avocado Cilantro Salsa Verde.


Next time, I’m definitely going to try one of the dessert trucks!
