We couldn’t let our DFW Trucks head to San Antonio without us so we headed down to San Antonio to give them our support. For some this was their first venture out of the DFW Metroplex. And it was the soft opening of Dallas’s newest truck, Pompeii, run by Chef Audra Denny. And those of you who know Audra, know that truck is going to be awesome!!!!
On the trip down we passed Good Karma Kitchen. And since Terry was driving, I could not resist taking a photo.
Boardwalk on Bulverde is a Food Truck Park operated by Cruisin Kitchens. Some trucks are parked and some come and go. Our goal was to taste all that they had to offer. All 13 Trucks! No way to sample enough for a full review of any truck, even with some help from Chuck Briant and Eliud Castro/Gepetto’s Pizza who flew down on Saturday to show their support, but this will introduce you to food trucks, San Antonio style.
Then came Taco King with Carne Asada Tacos. Taco King is pretty much a permanent fixture at the Boardwalk.
KC’s Cones are traditional SnoCones, using crushed instead of shaved ice, and some interesting size labels.
Rickshaw Stop started serving just Pakastani kebabs but has expanded the menu to include a variety of Pakastani street food. Sameer and Megan Siddiqui are regulars for diner service at the Boardwalk but get around town for lunch. You can follow them on Facebook or Twitter.
On of the raddest trucks you’ll see anywhere is Totally Shredded, a converted 1955 School Bus, with a gleaming kitchen and interior, ‘duck your head’ 6′ ceilings, and a massive engine. This is one food truck you don’t want to race for ‘pinks.’ Oh, and Chef Rich Yennerell puts out a pretty good spread, too! If you want to look up Totally Shredded on your next trip to SA, check it out on Facebook or Twitter.
Sabor Columbiano is HUGE by food truck standards, operating out of a converted RV, and the Latin American food coming out of the kitchen is HUGE on flavor. They’re big on social media, too. Check them out on the website, Facebook and Twitter.
SpiceSea Gourmet is an authentic seafood truck. Chef Whitney Matthews came out to support the cause on Saturday and plied us with her phenomenal seafood specialties and then teased us by selling out of her Lobster Shrimp PoBoy before we could get one reserved! You can read more about SpiceSea Gourmet at the website or find her location by following on Facebook or Twitter
It’s always interesting to visit other cities and learn about their food truck community. Include time to look up some of the trucks San Antonio has to offer on your next trip south. As with all food trucks, the best way to find them is no Facebook or Twitter but San Antonio offers at least three fixed locations:
Alamo Street Eat Bar in the heart of downtown San Antonio
