Day 63/100
Food Trucks
A few years ago, I heard about Kogi Taco opening up on the west coast. Taco trucks have been around forever, but not like this: Kogi blended Korean and Mexican tastes together into menu items like short rib tacos and kimchi quesadillas. Even better, twitter and bookface made it easy to pinpoint exactly where they were at any given time. On one of my trips back to LA I waited in a Kogi line for hours off a random street corner in Northridge. A two hour wait in the valley - incredible! So when Dim and Dem Sum opened up in Cleveland, I was ecstatic. Finally, Cleveland had its own food truck! Many others have followed: I see Umami Moto regularly at Shaker Square Farmer’s Market and have had a delicious lamb burger and a crazy mac-and-cheese-pulled-pork-grilled-cheese sandwich from two other trucks I can’t name right now. (Thanks for the bite, J.P!) Now there are regular food truck gatherings like C-Town Chow Down and Walnut Wednesdays where you can pick and choose as you please.I say, more food trucks all the way. I want to start a cornbread truck. Or a horchata truck. Or an Asian bakery bread truck! The possibilities are endless…
