I'd heard a rumor that the Biryani Park folks were gonna have a food truck. The City of Malden just tweeted that the truck is at Malden Center. Has anyone spotted it elsewhere?

    The point of a truck is that it has wheels. A Malden restaurant operating a truck that sells food in Malden is small thinking. We need this truck in Cambridge. Stat.

      Well, they did drive across town :-)

      Looks like they're staying local for the moment. The S&S website just lists the truck at Malden Center. Someone on twitter said it's a green truck, without a big sign. So maybe it's a new thing for them? To support the city's pilot food truck program?

        Green truck Shmgreen truck. Have they never seen "Man Push Cart"? They need to push their biryani filled dosas (a north-south combo that puts the FuckUp in FUSION) to Cambridge. Stat.

      Just saw on Facebook that the truck will be at Bell Rock park on Main St this evening, in conjunction with a Shakespeare-in-the-park event:

        Happened to stumble across the Biryani Park truck in downtown Boston last week and had an excellent string hopper biryani for lunch. I've looked online to see why it was downtown and when it'll be back, but I can't find any location information. Has anyone else seen the truck outside of Malden and/or been able to track down its schedule? Would love to make it a regular lunchtime stop!

          I talked to the chef briefly at the Taste of Malden event last month. It was loud in there and I couldn't get all of what he said, but they will be in Charlestown and 2 other Boston sites. I looked on the Boston food truck page but didn't see them listed there.

            I didn't see any info about the truck on their facebook page (which they also appear to have two of for some reason). You see stuff there? Can you post the current schedule here?

            It's downtown at least on Wednesdays - they seem to still be working out the kinks - I recommend going early if you want any selection and warm food at all.

            I got there at 1p last week and the (literally) only thing left was one Vegi Combo - so I tried it - it was lukewarm at best and not especially flavorful at all - kind of sludgy and blah, actually. I pitched the last half of it and got something else.

            Given the praise they have gotten here, I definitely plan to try again soon on the early side of lunch as the menu they posted had a lot of options that sounded great - food trucks have their space limits, I guess - I am glad they are popular and hope they will stock up for the coming weeks!

              I walked by 2 Weds ago and they were out of everything by 1 or so. This is at Kilby and Milk in the FD.

              I went last Wed and was a little disappointed after reading all the great reviews of the restaurant in Malden. Clearly they are still a work in progress. I don't see them on the usual Boston Food Truck schedule that I use; but they are listed here..

              Look at "table view," not "list view."

              Had a much better meal at D'Guru on Friday.

              Fugu is also there on Tues?? and I think they're putting out great food.

                I generally like D'Guru, but was disappointed by a goat entree that I had a coupla weeks ago. They had not boned the goat first. Now, I am generally OK with animals which have not been boned! But when you serve it chopped up in bite-size pieces, I think you should bone it (the goat).

                  There's so much to say about goat boning. Where do I begin? Look for previous threads.

                  I had another awesome goat stew this weekend from Highland Creole Kitchen. Bone in.

                    You know there is something so pure and pristine about a goat that has never been boned, like a field in Switzerland full of beautiful white eidelweis being ruffled by a warm breeze on the first day of spring...

                    That said, once you have boned a goat it's just so hard to go back. How ya gonna keep em down on the farm, after they've seen Paris?

                      Be. Very. Careful. Boning. Goats.
