Nammi’s little cute mascot is growing up. He started out as a cute little cartoon character on the first truck. But BIG NEWS FLASH: There is now Nammi truck #2, and the little boy is prominently featured. Nammi’s cutest food truck couple, Teena Nguyen and Garry Torres, has asked Sidedish nation to finally give the little guy a name.
Let’s step back a few months to May 2011, when the Nammi truck first appeared at a Deep Ellum event. It took Teena and Gary about a month or so to get their “truck legs,” but after that, they found their niche and have become one of the top food trucks in Dallas. Certainly, 16 hour days of hard, hard work contributed to their success.
Nammi’s signature menu item is the banh mi. They’ve got rice bowl and slider versions; however, it’s best if you just get the banh mi. As warmer weather arrives, pair it with Nammi’s sweet mint/basil lemonade. I’ve tried all of the different varieties, but I keep coming back to the BBQ pork banh mi.
Jump to name the “kid,” as well as more pictures and a great introductory video to Teena and Gary and their Nammi Vietnamese food truck.
