According to the future truck’s new Twitter account, it will serve “fresh, healthy, very affordable, authentic southeast Asian street food,” featuring bánh mì. Stay tuned for more.

Huntsville’s first “Street Food Season” ends with food trucks on a roll

HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WHNT) – Last summer, there were seven food trucks operating in the city of Huntsville. Today, there are more than triple that number.

Huntsville’s food truck revolution started with a 2013 change in city ordinance that allowed the trucks to sell downtown, but it exploded with the introduction of the “2014 Street Food Season.”

In April, the city held the first food truck rally. It was met by huge crowds, hungry for a new dining experience. Since then, organizers estimate more than 20,000 people have attended the rallies.

Food truck operator Chris Kelley calls the rallies, “a blessing.” Kelley runs Badd Newz BBQ. He bought the truck in 2012 and says, “being able to go downtown at these events every 3rd Friday has really helped me sustain my business.”

The season will end today with a rally from 6-9 p.m. in front of the Von Braun Center. Around 20 trucks are expected to participate in the event on Church Street. There will also be a free concert by Denim Jawbones and drinks for sale at the VBC Craft Beer Garden.

The rally is being held in conjunction with UAHuntsville’s homecoming. The Chargers will open their hockey season Friday night at the VBC.

Plans are already in the works for the 2015 Street Food Season. Downtown Huntsville Inc. CEO Chad Emerson says an announcement will be made shortly after the new year.

While Inukai has gone from Michelin stars to delivering fine food to the masses, street food is increasingly inching its way onto some of the finest dining menus in Sydney, too.

He is one of a line-up of top chefs at Sunday’s Asia Town street food festival, where a one-off marketplace at The Star will host demonstrations of some of Asia’s best-loved street food dishes. Thai chef David Thompson will join Red Lantern’s Luke Nguyen, Dan Hong of Mr Wong, Golden Century’s Li Ho and Neil Perry for the displays in the likes of pancakes, stir-fry, wok-tossing and charcoal-grilling.

Potts Point newcomer Cho Cho San’s Nic Wong will be “keeping things simple” with a charcoal-grilled chicken wing yakitori, while Sokyo’s Chase Kojima will cook a twist on age-old street favourite, okonomiyaki, a Japanese pancake of cuttlefish and beef.

But it is Inukai’s ramen that might prove the hit of the day.

“I’m going there and demonstrating, but I’m also going to be going there and taking notes on Harunobu’s secret recipe,”  Kojima said.

“I’m sure he’s going to be lying on stage!”

The Asia Town street food festival is held on Sunday, October 19, as part of Good Food Month. See goodfoodmonth.com.

            Takeaway will available from the front window, which may prove the speediest option as they won’t take bookings – first in, first seated.

                      Go Inside V Street, a Global Street Food Bar From the Vedge Team

                      V Street, the new bar from Vedge owners Rich Landau and Kate Jacoby, should be ready to open by the end of this week — somehow, some way. “All we’re waiting on is our bar stools and the liquor license,”  Jacoby told us at a preview last night. For a cocktail bar, unfortunately, those are hardly trivial elements.

                      The license transfer could be signed and finalized at any moment. Until then, the official opening date is in question. Landau did specify that they don’t want to go the BYO route, but could possibly open before the license comes through, if need be.

                      Still, the space is otherwise nearly complete, and the menu has been nailed down for a few weeks. (You can read the menu here; expect the vegan small plates menu to run $5-$12, averaging around $8. Cocktails, which are really engaging — mustard, it turns out, makes for a killer drink — go for $11-$13.)

                      V Street is edgier and more casual than Vedge, but with the same stylish-but-not-intimidating vibe. The railroad-style space is broken up by some quirky angles into three distinct areas. The focal point up front is the sleek bar, which will seat about eight. A seating area in the middle has room for 22 and peripheral views of both the bar and the open kitchen, which sits at the back. A lucky handful will get to perch at the bar surrounding the kitchen (or at one of the high-tops nearby) and keep an eye on all the action.

                      V Street, 126 South 19th Street, opening soon.

                      Dilated Peoples Appears On CNN’s "Street Food With Roy Choi"

                      Evidence, Babu and Rakaa Iriscience discuss “Directors Of Photography” and more.

                      Dilated Peoples recently discussed the group’s growth during an interview with Roy Choi for CNN’s Street Food With Roy Choi. In the piece, Evidence, Babu and Rakaa Iriscience explain how their 2014 album Directors Of Photography is bringing them back to where they began.

                      “Everything is very full circle for us,” Babu says in the clip. “Starting off as an independent group, it’s like we’re back in the same place. It’s just us three…and the music. And the music is very honest. Stripped down.”

                      Rakaa agrees, adding that this album also showcases the group’s ability to use imagery in its work.

                      “With Directors, Dilated being a very visual group…for the album itself, when you’re listening to it, it’s like you’re reading an ill graphic novel,” he adds. 

                      In the video, Evidence also reflects on where the group fits in the landscape of Hip Hop. 

                      “We’ve sold a lot of records on Capitol,” Evidence explains. “Probably a million records total from four albums. Maybe more. I don’t quite know where we fit in as far as the big picture of whether we’re Pop or whether we’re underground. We make boom-bap underground Hip Hop.”

                      For more on Dilated Peoples, view the video on CNN.

                      Dilated released its most recent album,Directors Of Photography, earlier this year, a critically acclaimed effort that earned the group a 4.5 out of 5 X rating on HipHopDX.

                      Coyo Taco: Mexican Street Food and Margaritas Coming to Wynwood in …

                      coyorendering.jpgCourtesy of CoyoCoyo. Tacos and margaritas coming to Wynwood.Wynwood Art Walk strollers will soon be able to take a taco (and tequila) break when Coyo Taco opens in November, next door to Panther Coffee at 2300 NW 2 Ave.

                      The small taqueria, named after Mexico City’s own version of Wynwood, the bohemian arts district of Coyoacán, will feature homemade tacos using farm fresh ingredients for a “genuine street food experience”.

                      Tortillas will be made on-site and avocados will be hand smashed for guacamole to order. All vegetables will be locally sourced and meat and seafood will be sourced humanely and will be naturally raised.

                      Although the menu hasn’t been finalized, three standout tacos are the carnitas de pato, made with carnitas-style crispy duck; cochinita pibil, made with slow orasted pork shoulder, achiote, and habanaro pickled onions; and a quinoa and queso fritter taco topped with cilantro yogurt.

                      Of course you can’t have a taco without a good margarita, so the restaurant will offer the popular cocktail handcrafted using Coyo’s own tequila and mezcal collection. Aguas Frescas, refreshing non-alcoholic fruit beverages, will also be available.

                      The team behind the restaurant, Alan Drummond, Sven Vogtland and Anna Robbins, have expansive combined experience in the hospitality industry, and look forward to opening in Wynwood. Partner Anna Robbins says, ³I¹m grateful to have aligned with Alan and Sven and we believe Wynwood is the perfect home for this concept.”

                      Coyo will serve breakfast, lunch, dinner, and offer late night dining. Sty tuned for more menu items and opening information.
