Foodies will recognize many of the names topping the food booths: Beaver’s, Fluff Bake Bar, Kim Son, Sammy’s Wild Game Grill and Pink’s Pizza. Houston’s booming food-truck community also will be well-represented at the festival. Trucks scheduled to work the fest: MuSuBi, Golden Grill, Bare Bowls Kitchen, Chi’Lantro and Bernie’s Burger Bus.
Downtown just got a little sweeter. Popular food truck Porch Swing Desserts has opened a store in the tunnel at 801 Louisiana St.
The truck, named Caveman Chow will serve dishes such as pancakes and bacon-wrapped meatloaf that follow the Paleo philosophy of a meat and vegetable based diet that skips grains, sugars and dairy.
The truck is the first I’ve seen to offer either chips and salsa or chips and queso (although they’re not complimentary, as they’d be at a restaurant). And Taco Nuts also offers burritos and “nachos chilaquiles” like Los Huevos del Ranchero, which sees tortilla chips topped with braised brisket, red salsa, ranch-style beans, green chile queso, cilantro, ghost pepper aioli and a poached egg.
For one day only, many amazing food trucks from around Houston, Texas and parts unknown will gather at Stereo Live, offering delicious flavors and tastes, accompanied by live music and drinks.
Fraîche Mobile Kitchen showcases locally sourced ingredients. They purchase their pork and lamb through Black Hill Ranch, get their egg supply from Renaissance Chickens, their produce from the local farmers’ market and all bread is baked fresh daily.
His latest pizza is all about indulgence. The flatbread is topped with tomato sauced, foie gras, arugula, Mongolian onions, rosemary, mozzarella and honey.
The new food truck is capitalizing on more than just the ramen craze that’s hit Houston like a tsunami (still too soon?): It’s also the third place in a week where I’ve eaten a dish based around Cheetos. To be fair, the first spot — Poppa Burger — has been serving its signature Bag of Flamin’ Hot Cheetos Topped with Stadium Cheese for a few years now.
They say you can serve just about anything in a food truck. The more exotic, the better. And for the guys running Houston’s Miso Yummy, the sushi rolls roll with the times.
The Haute Wheels food truck festival is back for its third year. It will be held earlier, and hopefully in a more temperate fashion this time, the weekend of March 23-24.
