I read about this nomadic breakfast/lunch/sandwich joint run by Two Young Chefs with a Vision in the Seattle Weekly's food blog yesterday and I had to try it immediately. Skillet serves food out of an Airstream trailer and its daily location is easily found through its GPS locator.
We went for lunch today (their second day in business) and had the kobe beef sliders (dressed with blue cheese and bacon marmalade), the hazelnut crusted chicken sandwich (dressed with fennel slaw), the poutin (basically, french fries with cheese and gravy), and the dessert - peaches cooked in a (wait for it....) skillet served with granola and sweet cream. The sandwiches are a wee bit on the spendy side ($8 for my hazelnut chicken, $9.50 for 2 sliders with fries) but absolutely, totally, delightfully worth it. Their hours are 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. (but check their website to make sure they're open when you want to go -- both owners are juggling full-time jobs in addition to this, their passion). Breakfast sounds orgasmically good (I dimly remember something involving a waffle, braised pork belly, and maple syrup -- then my ears started ringing and I was deafened by food lust).
Everything is sourced locally, made to order, and served in environmentally-friendly containers made from sugar cane.
Here is a link to their website: http://www.skilletstreetfood.com/
"Easily" found? :) The stated address and the GPS location were different, and the trailer was not to be found at either, although perhaps that's because they had just closed (though their hours aren't on their website). Arrrgh. I'm sure the quest will just make it that much better when I actually find it.
