After winning Gordon Ramsay’s Masterchef, Luca Manfe launched The Lucky Fig in Houston serving more than 7,000 meals and catering 26 events. The concept was to deliver farm-to-street modern Italian cuisine. The truck‘s menu offered shareable starters like meatballs and stuffed riceballs as well as sandwiches on homemade bread and a rotating pasta special. It’s hearty, satisfying stuff, particularly the properly al dente rigatoni with bolognese sauce and the bison short ribs on ciabatta bread.
