For those of you who have been with the group for awhile, you may know that I used to put together food truck tasting events. It's been awhile since my last one so I thought it was time to revive that tradition. What better food truck to start with than the Go Chew Food Truck?
What's interesting about the Food Truck Owner/Chef, Charles Slonaker, of Go Chew is that for the last few years, he's been traveling around the world cooking at different fine dining establishments including stints at Noma in Copenhagen and Commerc 24 in Barcelona as well restaurants in the states like Nobu 57 in NYC, Valentino in Las Vegas, and Joule in Seattle. Quite an impressive culinary resume, don't you think?
And yet, the focus of his menu is on his Korean heritage and I have to say that the food I was able to sample was really delicious. Check out my recent blog post about Go Chew by clicking here. You can also see pictures of some of what I was able to try below, which included a Rice Cake Bowl, a Fried Chicken Bowl and a Spicy Soup.
Our particular tasting is going to run $15/$16 per person and will include the following:
Root Vegetables with Molasses Miso, Walnuts and Kale Tofu Yogurt with Grilled Cucumber Pea Shoots and Lotus Roots Egg Tofu with Spicy Aioli and Togarashi Spinach Salad with Sesame Seed, Pickled Carrot and Bonito Pork Bowl With Charred Pork Bely and Beer Brined Egg Yolk Miso Soup with Fried Pork, Egg, Kimchi and Rice Cakes Beverages will be sold separately.
This will be an awesome chance for you to not have to chase a food truck or have to look for it via Twitter. Instead, the truck is going to come to us and with it, your chance to try a variety of items on their menu at a reasonable price. So please come out and join us!
Note: For your own comfort, you may want to bring a folding chair and/or a tupperware in case you want to take leftovers home.
