Bombay Street Food Truck Brings A Dosa Of Good Tidings And Great Joy

dosa1by Steven Doyle

One of favorite food trucks in Dallas is the Bombay Street Food and we havr a bizarre obsession with its menu. The truck serves 100% vegan dosas and other interesting Indian offerings.

A dosa is a versatile Southern Indian street food that is prepared with a crispy 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

A Short Trip To Spain With Si Tapas

by Steven Doyle

We love our tapas, and probably a bit disappointed that the term is becoming a bit diluted with the use for anything small. Small plates does not equal tapas. Tapas are these marvelous plated dishes from Spain and basically snacks and appetizers. Since dinner can be served as late as midnight in this country, you might find yourself bar hopping and sampling a few items from probably a dozen different tapas the bar has on hand that evening.

Most likely you will be served several styles of olives, breads, a bit of slow cooked beef, battered squid, sausages or a tortilla de patatas . Actually the more you drink the better the tapas become.    Continue reading

Meet The Latest Dallas BBQ Food Truck, Not Just Q

DSC01506by Steven Doyle

I sat down recently with Eric Hansen and Robert Carter who together just started a new food truck business called Not Just Q. Curious name, but certainly we could assume they are doing BBQ and plenty more. These are both interesting fellows, with different backgrounds and personalities that seem to make it work.

Eric Hansen is classically trained at Cordon Bleu and hails from the Kansas City area. Eric has worked at restaurants and been in the business since he was 11 years old.  Being from Kansas City that means pork shoulders, ribs and plenty of sauce to soak up the meat. Robert Carter has a background in psychology and worked with children. It was after many sleepless nights that he abandoned his life’s work for the restaurant industry. He lists a series of high profile BBQ legends including Big Al’s, Eddie Deen and most recently Mike Anderson.    Continue reading
