A Sandwich a Day: The Eastman from the Eastman Egg Company Food Truck

Chicago Dennis Lee 3 comments

I truly believe the egg is underrepresented in sandwiches. I don't mean as a topper, like on a burger, but as the main star of the show. More

Bold Flavors, Great Bread All Wrapped Up in Boston's A4 Truck

Hub Grub Liz Bomze Post a comment

The bread of A4's piadina, modeled on the restaurant's beloved pizza dough, is smooth, fine-crumbed, and sturdy enough to hold the warm, juicy, potentially messy fillings—in this case, the Kafta, a slab of Lebanese-spiced beef and pork sausage with roasted red peppers, tangy yogurt sauce, and both lettuce and cilantro.

10 Barbecue Trucks We Love In Austin, TX

Meredith Bethune 4 comments

A barbecue trailer power vacuum has existed in Austin ever since Franklin Barbecue transformed from food truck to brick-and-mortar operation two years ago. In a city packed with food trucks of all varieties, who will take its place? Besides the classic Texas barbecue meat plates and sausages, even more choices are popping up. There are smoked carnitas, brisket tacos, and Cuban-inspired pulled pork sandwiches. Many of these barbecue trucks offer a party-style with live music and free beer on weekends. The city of Austin is clearly benefiting from all this barbecue drama. More

Chicago Dennis Lee 1 comment

When I found the Soups in the Loop truck last week, it was on an unseasonably cold day—blustery, damp, and in the 40's. I eagerly stood in line while I listened to my coworkers complaining about the weather for ten minutes straight. More

First Look: Cow Tipping Creamery, Austin

Sweets Veronica Meewes 4 comments

Cow Tipping Creamery is a turquoise gem in a food trailer park near Austin's University of Texas. The menu is a force to be reckoned with, and peanut butter sauce has to be one of the most ordinary things on it. You're more likely to find Dr. Pepper cherry sauce and blood orange olive oil and champagne marshmallows and honey dust—all made from scratch by Tim and Corey Sorenson. More

10 Food Trucks in Austin We Love

Meredith Bethune 6 comments

The number of food trucks in Austin is overwhelming. With more than 1,000 trucks (many with quirky and kitschy themes, like "Biscuits and Groovy"), some might even say the scene is saturated. Don't settle for mediocre food served from gimmicky trucks! For this list, we wanted to highlight the trucks that represent the Austin scene at its best—scrappy entrepreneurs making excellent food with minimal overhead. More

There, Scott Tremonti worked side by side with Chris, for what I later learned was the first time ever. Chris began offering guidance to Scott, and his pizzas have been consistently improving ever since. More

More Hurricane Sandy Relief from Burgers and Food Trucks

A Hamburger Today Robyn Lee 1 comment

In the wake of Hurricane Sandy, many food businesses in New York City have been helping out by holding relief dinners and giving away free meals. Food trucks have been particularly helpful in getting food out to severely affected areas in Staten Island, Brooklyn, Queens, Manhattan, and New Jersey. Although Serious Eats: New York is keeping us updated on Sandy stories from the food world, I wanted to point out what some of our friends in the burger world have done to help, and what you can do.

Lunch in the Loop: Taquero Fusion Food Truck

Chicago Dennis Lee 3 comments

The Taquero Fusion truck is slick and equipped with a flat-screen television on the side that displays the menu and prices. Being the eternal manchild, I love shiny things and blinking lights, and I naturally gravitated towards the truck until suddenly, tacos and guacamole appeared in my hand, and soon, into my mouth.
