Food Truck Of the Week: Bento Box

bento1by Steven Doyle

I ran across a newish food truck this week, Bento Box. They are primarily a Fort Worth truck, but I found them in Dallas for a special event. The thought of sushi in a food truck, which in the summer can exceed 110 degrees, was at first disarming. When I spoke to the owners, chef Scott Kaiser and his lovely bride Brandi, those thoughts of odd fish quickly went away. Using the term chef generally does not apply to most food truck operators, but in this case it is not only well deserved, it is accurate.

The couple actually have a storied restaurant career and met while both were working at the Cafe Modern located in the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth. Scott was cheffing while Brandi worked the front of the house. Continue reading

Dosa Truck Hitting Dallas Streets This Week (It’s Vegan And Very Delicious)

dosaby Steven Doyle

There’s a new food truck in town and it is owned by the people who brought the first Indo-Chinese food truck to the DFW area, Bombay Street Food, and we have an exclusive first look at the menu. The truck will be serving 100% vegan dosas and is hitting the streets starting Thursday evening at the Sprouts on Henderson near Ross Ave. You may also find the truck Friday at the Toys for Tots food truck rally in Deep Ellum which you can find at Gaston and Elm streets.

A dosa is a versatile Southern Indian street food that is prepared with a crepe-like shell made of rice and lentils, and filled with ingredients that can be served with varying spice levels. This makes for an interesting and practical offering for a food truck, and one that fills a niche the Dallas area desperately needed.   Continue reading

Ruthie’s Adds A Rolling Crepe Truck To The Line Up

by Steven Doyle

Ruthie’s Rolling Café is a triple threat in the Dallas food truck business. In a time when more than just a few trucks are rolling up their welcome mats and high-tailing it out of town, Ruthie’s continues to expand. As with any business, longevity is given to the very best. Ruthie’s has always been known for their quality sandwiches with their first truck which features above average grilled cheese sandwiches (try the BBQ filled grilled cheese for maximum impact).   Continue reading

Ruthies Rolling Cafe Announces A New Truck (Think Crepes)

by Jennifer Thomas

Ruthie’s Rolling Cafes are a trio of food trucks that have set a new standard in roving delicacies.  The first food truck, called Ruthie’s Rolling Cafe, introduced a gourmet grilled cheese sandwich that took Dallas by storm. Offering melt in your mouth grilled cheese sandwiches to the DFW area, word spread like wildfire and Ruthie’s achieved a cult following overnight.

“We use our grandmother’s nostalgic cheesy dreamy recipes and prepare them with love in our “kitchen on wheels”, the result is Ruthie’s Rolling Café, our best idea ever,” said owner Ashlee Hunt Kleinert.     Continue reading

Belgian Waffle Company Rolling To A Neighborhood Near You

by Steven Doyle

If you happen to spot the Belgian waffle truck flying around the city, take pause and note that there are real Belgians aboard. And if you thought for one minute that the people of Belgian do not eat their overly stuffed waffles, think again. This isn’t some wacky fairground idea to sell griddled dough stacked with fresh fruits, chocolate and whipped cream. Waffles are part of the daily diet of Belgians near and far according to the Belgian Waffle Company food truck owners  Frank Coucke and Ingrid Gysel.   Continue reading
