JapaCurry: Katsu Curry from a Truck (SF)

by Kayoko Akabori

I’ve been pretty sickly lately. Two weeks ago I caught some awful stomach flu (or food poisoning? whatever) and as I laid in my bed for 72 hours in a sweat pool of misery, starving but unable to keep anything down (nay liquids, tmi), all I truly desired was a bite of… katsu curry. This […]

Culinography: Dim Sum Charlie’s

by Erin Gleeson

I was recently in my hometown of Santa Rosa (Sonoma County, CA) and a bit of a buzz has started about a gathering of food trucks on Monday afternoons in one parking lot in town. Serving fare from their adorable airstream trailer, Dim Sum Charlie’s had the longest line by far- which of course we […]

Skankynavia: Hot Dog-Off! (CPH)

by Anders Arhoj

Being a single gay nerd means the only sausage you’re gonna get is down at the hot dog stand. Eating a ho tdog is part of being Danish– or at least it used to. The fast food army of America and the growing health awareness has overturned the old wiener kingdom, and now eating a […]

Viva La Food Truck: Chairman Bao (SF)

by Kayoko Akabori

With all this garbage talk from NYC to LA about city officials revoking food truck permits, I decided to go out and support SF food trucks yesterday. Supporting them, meaning, EATING LUNCH. It’s the best kind of support, right? Viva La Food Truck! Since my friends Travis and Claire had told me about Chairman Bao, […]

Shirohige Ramen Truck (SF)

by Kayoko Akabori

Two words: RAMEN TRUCK. Is this not the raddest thing you’ve ever heard? Cause it should be. I know, I know, the food truck scene is so The 00’s. Ramen is now borderline boring to blabber on about (there are only so many ways I can get creative about describing noodles in broth with pork […]

by Kayoko Akabori

To kick-off the unveiling of the book based on the wildly popular website, This Is Why You’re Fat (TIWYF), NYC is getting its very own Food Truck Twitter-Off next Thursday 10/29. It is guaranteed to be a day of gorging fattasery, in what will be a massive, city-wide scavenger hunt. What fun! Aptly titled the […]

Culinography: The Vendys (NYC)

This is a red velvet cupcake topped with apple chips from Cupcake Stop at The Vendy Awards last weekend at the Queens Museum of Art. The annual Vendy Awards is an intense cook-off between the best sidewalks chefs in New York City, where food truck vendors all vie for the prized Vendy Award trophy. You […]

Chez Spencer French Food Truck (SF)

by CJ Mattiola

Yesterday I was at my usual Thursday happy hour and started wandering around the city with a little buzz trying to figure out where to go next. As I approached the corner of Folsom and 7th Street, I noticed a food truck in a parking lot and naturally went straight over to check it out. […]

Anon’s Thai Food Truck (Brattleboro, VT)

by Kayoko Akabori

Every Wednesday and Saturday, Anon opens up his truck in the Brattleboro Food Co-Op parking lot and displays his colorful wares to fellow Brattleborians. It seemed like the entire community came out for this event, as people were lined up to get their pad thai on. I had an eggroll the size of my head. […]

Mexican Seafood Dining in a Parking Lot (San Jose)

by Kayoko Akabori

Here is my new favorite place that Christi and Mike brought me to in Man Jose called Dia de Pesca. It’s a seafood taco shack out of a “roach coach” that ROCKS. Literally, it’s just an old school mobile home that houses the kitchen, parked in the middle of a parking lot, with tables and […]
