Chief Brody’s Banh Mi Truck + Jason Sobocinski Sock it to Homelessness

9 Oct

As a continuation of his Guest Chef Series, Chef Greg Martell from Chief Brody’s Banh Mi food truck will be teaming up with Chef Jason Sobocinski from Caseus in New Haven and Black Hog. They’ll be manning the food truck together on October 15 from 11-3 at the corner of York and Chapel. At that time they will not only be serving up their regular awesome menu, but will also have a special Banh Mi from the food-genius mind of Jason Sobocinski. But, this isn’t the first time these two chefs have worked together, oh no. Martell actually used to work the Caseus food truck!

Oh, and there’s an extra incentive to order that special sandwich: Chief Brody’s will donate $2 from every purchase to Columbus House Inc. who serves the homeless and those in risk of being homeless. In addition, they will be a Sock Drive going down. Just bring a pair of new socks in and you’ll be entered to win some great swag from Caseus, Ordinary, Black Hog, and Chief Brody’s.

Brews @ The Beer Garden + Filipino Bites @ HAPA Food Truck = Great Summer Day

6 Jul

It’s been a while since we checked out the Beer Garden @ Shippan Landing, so we know that we were due for our check-in. When we arrived the day before ‘Murica’s birthday, the vibe was chill, with about 30 peeps enjoying the day with some beer, cornhole, and beer pong. Apparently this was the calm after the storm because just the night before 700 people danced and drank the night away at their Country Fest.

TBB Breakfast Sandwich: house slab bacon, farm egg, American cheese, lettuce, tomato, hash browns with Sriracha Mayo on their signature toasted Portuguese Muffin. All photos from The Brunch Box’s FB page.

We love the variety of food trucks that you can find here in Fairfield County. You’ve got trucks that focus on grilled cheese, meatball subs, pierogies, tacos, lobster rolls, burgers, fries, arepas, exotic foods . . . and now you can devour some brunch specialties. Oh hell yes, you heard right! The Brunch Box launched just four weeks ago in Stamford and has met with major success so far. In fact, they were so successful this weekend, that they sold out of their signature Portuguese Muffins that they get shipped especially for them from MA.

The Meat Truck Chomps Down on New Haven and Sets Paws on Fairfield County

23 Jul

There are days when we want to go light, there are days when you might mix a little light with something heavier.  Then again, there are days when you break out into a hardcore, primal, carnivorous rage and take down meaty dish after meaty dish.

So, Jose Perez did like any American, food (and fun)-loving person would do:  he decided to open up a food truck:  The Meat Truck to be exact.  Their first launch was on July 4 weekend and they sold out of all their food on that day. If  that’s any indiction of their future success, then we think they’ll do very nicely.  While we haven’t had a chance to try the food yet, we did snag an interview with Jose to let you know more about what you can look forward to when The Meat Truck hits up Fairfield and New Haven Counties.

What gave you the inspiration to start a food truck?

Take a gander at this custom built truck...

Take a gander at this custom built truck…

There are food trucks and then there are food trucks, serving up hand crafted, custom made, awesome food. We’re not talking about your standard street food fare, we be talking ’bout Vanchetta, a rolling rotisserie truck that had its soft opening last week in Stamford. When we broke the news to everybody, people were excited…even the owner, Andy Dolan, who said he was a big fan of our blog but was trying to keep things quiet and take things slowly (oops, sorry for that man).

Well, now that it’s public knowledge, we’re ready to share our experience…
