Yes, the food truck issue has gotten plenty of press, but come on, how cute are these kids behind the wheel of the Nammi banh mi food truck? Driving around, making sandwiches, being all smart & adorable. (NOTE: we can’t vouch for the food because we haven’t hooked up with them yet. but we’ll let you know as soon as we do.)
Here’s what they have to say for themselves:
The Nammi formula that began serving the major DFW metroplex area was a simple equation:
(Two starving architects with passions for good food x empty wallets) + one beat down truck = great idea!
An appetite for a mobile food truck that serves homemade banh mi like how mama use to make when I was younger. Simple ingredients with the touch of Nammi love has made our stomachs warm and fuzzy, so now we would like to share this with all of you!
Our Mission: Make banh mi for everyone to enjoy!
Introducing the Nammi Truck! A Vietnamese Fusion Truck serving up banh mi, Vietnamese tacos, spring rolls and much more to the DFW metroplex. We are not trying to re-invent banh mi or Vietnamese Cuisine. We just want to share our take on this Vietnamese classic and hope that others would enjoy eating it just as much as we enjoying making it for you guys!
Jump for their schedule for the rest of this week. Give us a shout if you track them down. Continue reading "Cruisin’ Vietnamese Fusion: (Two starving architects+love of food) x empty wallets + 1 beat down truck = Nammi Truck"10 Comments »
There’s about to be an angry mob with torches and pitchforks outside my cubicle, ready to string me up for disclosing their favorite hole-in-the-wall: Seafood Shack. Blame D’s director of online media, Julie Blacklidge Kinzie, for grabbing me at our Monday morning meeting to rave about the ceviche and margaritas.

Chorizo tacos are underrated. I love it when I find chorizo on a taqueria menu in a gas station and Taqueria Cholula has no shortage of chorizo and other options for the taco fanatic. You’ll find at least 14 types of tacos here: beef fajita, chicken, pastor, and barbacoa. The day of my visit they were out of two.
Taqueria Cholula, located in the Conoco Station at I-35E and Royal Lane, is the first place I’ve found that serves suadero, a thin cut of meat from the breast of a cow. Sorry, I didn’t try it. I really wanted to try the chorizo and I also ordered beef fajita, pastor, and barbacoa tacos on corn tortillas with chopped onions and cilantro. My carryout order also included some salsa roja, more orange than red, and salsa verde.2 Comments »
The set-up: Raise the flag on the rebirth of the corner of Greenville and Goodwin as Rohst (phonetic for roast) opens in the spot next to Dodie’s (and across from The Grape and Blue Goose). Although this new eatery is still in the soft-opening phase, we paid a visit (undercover, of course) to find out how the new concept—one with a consortium of owners and (gasp) not one celebrity chef in the kitchen—would fare against the ultimate judge and jury: our taste buds.
First of all, hats off to the design team. Even though the frontage would benefit from lighter tint on the windows, the interior’s high ceiling and low lighting provide textbook relief from the oven-like heat outside. We love the mezzanine-style second level, two-story stone mosaic, rough-hewn wood accents, stone flooring, and drum-pendant chandeliers. (Although I wasn’t crazy about the upstairs mural, I do have to give the design team snaps for trying to create a back story involving ancient Korean cave drawings.)
