I’ve often written how every food truck out there is looking for managers and cooks. This week, in addition to the usual “everyone is hiring”, il cane rosso’s mobile team wants to hire “a catering lead who can drive a van with our new 30′ trailer who can park it in crazy spots”.
Wednesday brings us the competing pop-up food truck events: “The Food Truck Experience” at Sigel’s on Greenville and “Street Food Wednesdays” behind the Knox St. Crate & Barrel.
Thursdays now have competing pop-ups a well, with “Bite Nights” continuing at Vitruvian Park in Addison (3875 Ponte Ave Addison 75001).
Oak Lawn gets its first pop-up on Thursday, at the Walgreen’s at Oak Lawn/Cedar Springs, with Nammi, Ssahm, Easy Slider, The Butcher’s Son, Three Lions, and Coolhaus.
Lake Highlands gets LH StrEATS on Saturday evening with Nammi, Coolhaus, Ssahm, The Butcher’s Son, Gandolfo’s, Easy Slider, and So-Cal Tacos.
Here is your somewhat delayed schedule for the week. Remember to always check Facebook and Twitter feeds, especially when DFW thunderstorms spook the food truck owners. Continue reading "Weekly Food Truck News and Schedule for June 11"1 Comment »
Leo & Churro Taqueria has ousted my favorite al pastor gas station taco from Abierto. The roasted pork spit behind the cash register deserves respect, and respect it I did by ordering a couple al pastor tacos. I added a couple additional options too, including a beef fajita and my first gas station lengua (tongue) taco.
The al pastor tacos are amazing. The meat is a long, thin cut of pork with caramelized fat giving it a rich almost bacon-like flavor that is incredibly flavorful with some squeezed lime juice, onions, and cilantro. The homemade salsa roja adds some additional flavor making it one of the best gas station tacos in Dallas.
This was only my second time trying lengua. My first experience was at El Guero (renamed now to Tacos La Banqueta) where a couple lengua experts directed me. For lengua, El Guero is amazing. The tongue tastes like a slow roasted meat that is tender and flavorful. The lengua at Leo & Churro Taqueria is sliced into chunks and doesn’t have the tenderness of El Guero’s. The lengua is flavorful and not overcooked. It’s definitely worth trying, and if you’re a lengua fan, please let me know what you think as I only have one reference point.
Finally the beef fajita taco was tender and flavorful, rounding out one of my best gas station taco experiences. I look forward to trying the other choices: chicken, carnitas, barbacoa, chicharron (fried pork), tripitas (tripe) and desebrada (shredded beef).1 Comment »
A very concerned sister is worried her younger sissy. She has a quandary. (No, it isn’t contagious.) Be nice:
I have a quandary I thought you might be able to ease.My sister is about to start college at TCU and is meeting her first roommate (well, besides her mom and dad) for the first time. They are looking for a place to meet for dinner that is in between Dallas and Fort Worth. She’s come to me for a recommendation but my usual arsenal of restaurants stay firmly at the bookends of both cities. I thought perhaps you, or a fellow Sidedisher, may have a recommendation for someplace in between. They are starting college, so price may be a constraint, but other than that there are really no restrictions.
