Food Truck Review: No. 45

FARM TRUCK

Well, it sounded really good. The Farm Truck bills itself as a kind of do-gooder graffiti-laden post-visionary art gallery on wheels, working with local purveyors and selling “an eclectic mix of contemporary American fare with a gourmet twist.” The kind of truck Bill Walton would like.

farm1 Food Truck Review: No. 45

Hey, we wanted to like it too. We went to Burning Man once, way back in the day. So we ordered up a jerk chicken hoagie ($8), with cilantro, carrot, fried shallots and a lot of other things that spring from the ground. Mostly, it tasted like vinegar and salt. Waayyyy too much seasoning here.

We went healthy for a side dish, trying the grilled asparagus, with miso aioli and peanut sesame brittle ($4). The asparagus itself was fresh and smoky. But whatever New Age chef decided that veggies and peanut brittle are a good mix, well, we sure don’t see eye to eye. This is an invention that never needed to happen.
