Remember that I don't eat red meat unless it is the beloved patty melt but love fish and chicken..
Whatcha got for this chica for lunch?

  1. Are you thinking all you can eat? Ha! Probably not.

    How about a food truck?

    It's not my site - but a local Hounder posts all the locations each day. (Hi Kelly, I think.) It will be updated for the 22nd shortly I'd think.

    Me? I'm gonna go-go to Devilicious. They have 2 (count 'em 2!) trucks now. From their tweets they are going to be at 10020 Pacific Mesa Blvd 11:30-1:30 AND 10180 Willow Creek Rd from 11:30am - 1:30pm today. I'll be the guy wearing a dark purple shirt. And then with food spilled on the front of my shirt.

    I guess they are doing a shrimp po' boy that dudes and ladies are lovin'

      Apparently they have some "special" where you get the blackened prime rib AND the tempura shrimp on top.... Is that a lo' boy instead?

      Edit - Ah I didn't see BC was the OP.... still have the lobster grilled cheese and shrimp po'boy though!

        Lobster grilled cheese...OMG
        I have a Devilicious coupon $12 bucks for food for $6..
        DH could have the blackened Prime lo'boy..
        Thanks K..

          Well, this thread explains something I noticed a week or two ago. After not having seen the KALBIQ truck for a while on Regents in UTC (figured that they took the summer quarter off), I saw a Devilicious truck and wondered if there now was competition. A quick scan of the Food Trucks site indicates that the KALBIQ truck became a second Devilicious truck. Their menu looks a lot more interesting, but I'm not sure if it will be a hit with the student crowd.

            Do the food trucks ever go up to casinos up North for concerts...going to Don Henley and would love to chow down on some good food vs. the casino food.
            I know it's a long haul but a captive audience.

            1. re: Beach Chick

              I don't think the casino's will allow food trucks on their premisis as they have restaurants etc.

              1. re: cstr

                yeah, it was a fleeting thought..going to their Oyster bar and pony up to the bar for a dozen oysters, chowdah and a glass of wine...maybe, I can talk Don into letting me be the back up stick chick one day..

          2. Super Cocina, chic mole!! they also have various fish and non meat selections. Maybe Fish & Chips at Shakespeare or a grilled fish sammie at El Pescador. All mentioned are under a sawbuck. Horray for tofu!!
