On Food Truck Names

I don’t know if it’s just the recent hipster love for food trucks, but you have to applaud food truck vendors for the effort they put into their “whimsical” names. This month’s food truck schedule at my apartment complex reads like a @McSweeneys List.

Seriously, like:

Hipster Food Truck Names

  1. Shark Bait – fish tacos and hamburgers.
  2. O Mi Ninja – Vietnamese street food.
  3. Road Dogs – Specialty hot hogs.
  4. Rice Rickit & Soulnese – Savory hood with Asian fusion twist and
    Asian soul food
    .

Except for the title, word for word from the flyer. I love it when the real world and the “surreal” world of our squirrely little brains and clever little thoughts blur.

WTF? Lay’s Potato Chips now come in “Chicken & Waffles” flavor? I don’t even know what that would be— somehow sweet & savory… and crunchy like cripsy fried chicken but then the syrup…?

Guys, seriously, you can’t just jam all the flavors you like into one thing and expect it to be amazing or even remotely nutritrious— unless this is a science fiction movie about the future and those are pills.

“2LEGIT” Combo— buttermilk fried chicken & belgian waffle with collard greens & mac ‘n’ cheese.

Maybe it’s because I was in desperate need of some comfort food, but OK, I’m sold on at least The Waffle Roost food truck setting up shop once in awhile in front of my apartment complex. It wasn’t really “hipsters ironically slumming it chic” like I was afraid it might be; it was more just families and single people alike in my apartment complex (which is huge with many buildings, making a lot of people “neighbors”) grabbing a quick and convenient dinner.

But I feel like that cartoon chicken is somehow racist, ah say, ah say. And I wonder how many people actually get the M.C. Hammer reference day-to-day?

(By the way, I didn’t have MTV growing up, so I had no idea until now that the full length music video for that song is 10 minutes long, the first four of which is this whole dramatic sequence with James Brown?! AND thanks again to the Internet, I ALSO learned today that the whole music video was actually a dance-off challenge to Michael Jackson for his sequined glove! What the… .?!)

Whatever. Nom nom nom.

(Ha ha, a Foghorn Leghorn reference— and another example of a cartoon chicken that I’m not quite sure is all that politically correct…)

I give up: I’m not really sure how I feel about this weird smells-like-hipster-irony thing my apartment complex started a few months ago by having weekly food trucks in front of the main office/building during dinner time, but come January 14th, I don’t think I will be able to continue to resist chicken and waffles parked in front of my house.

Only took 3 days to make (sort of— most of that time is waiting for the fresh ginger + sugar base “marinate” in the fridge), but now I can mix & heat up Mommy’s ginger tea at the office— that little 12 oz (1.5 cup) Martinelli’s bottle of concentrated tea will easily yield at least 3 big mug-fulls of yummy tea for both health and comfort. Will post recipe soon.

One of the best parts of being home: by the time I get up and come downstairs, my mom has already been up for hours and is ready with a list of breakfast options. This morning- 빈대떡! (Bindaetteok- type of Korean pancake; just Google it…)

The Bay Fish & Chips

I finally tried The Bay Fish & Chips last week and it has that greasy spoon with great food feeling. Aside from pleasantly big, deep-fried pieces of fish, they also offer shrimp, calamari, scallops, etc. And aside from classic chips, they also have deep-fried mushrooms, zucchini, artichoke, onion rings, etc.

What’s twisted, though? The fish tank with two giant goldfish swimming around, sitting right there, up on the counter, with a good view to where they cook the fish.
