Introducing Kimchi, Dallas' Newest Korean Fusion Food Truck. Also: Cheesesteaks.

Kimchi in a cup > pizza in a cup.
Have you bumped into Hey Kimchi yet? Hopefully not; it's likely bigger than you are. You do want to get to know it though: Dallas' latest Korean-fusion food truck specializes in what they refer to as CupBop Rice, a cup of rice with layers of meat that add chewiness and layers of vegetables that add crunch. Other cup-based meals are likely starting to feel a little bit nervous.

I was all set to pick out my CupBop options but a second menu caught my eye, specifically the bulgogi cheesesteak. I hadn't had a cheesesteak in a few hours, so I knew that would be my order. Had I known what I was getting myself into, I might have decided on a couple of tacos instead.

Look at this thing.

Dallas' Big Rig of Pizza Trucks Is Tossing Decent Neapolitan Pies

IMG_3746.jpg
Have you seen this bella donna around Dallas, trailing smoke and steam? If you have you came this close to the latest rolling contraption to hit Dallas' mobile pizza scene. Bellatrina Neapolitan Pizzeria and Cucina promises Neapolitan pies anywhere a square of pavement can support a Freightliner.

The rig boasts a wood-fired oven that adds another 1,000 pounds to its bulk, according to owners Tracy Sanford and John Cooper, but it gives them the ability to turn out Neapolitan pizzas and other baked goods as readily as any traditional Italian restaurant.

Dallas' Truck Yard: A Video Tour

Dallas' Truck Yard: A Guided Tour from Voice Media Group on Vimeo.

We asked Leslie Brenner to give us a video tour of the Truck Yard but she was too busy Googling "Los Angeles food critic openings West Side please mmmmmm the beach," so we settled for crack video intern, Sarah Passon.

Read Scott Reitz's review in this week's weekly periodical or just click this button, which I admit seems markedly easier.

When looking at the Korean fusion trend that's chugging away in Dallas, it was impossible to ignore the Ssahm BBQ Trucks and their loads of "gourmet Korean tacos." Andy Park and Oh Kwon's first vehicle was one of the first to hit the streets of Dallas, and they've been garnering a loyal following ever since. Now they have two sets of wheels dispatching double-stacked tortillas packed with spicy, sweet meat all over Dallas.

Three Lions came to the Dallas food truck scene as Three Men and a Taco. The Taco ended up bailing. The three men stayed behind to re-brand their wheels as an English-themed food truck selling fish and chips and meat pies, among many other things.

Tina Nguyen was guarded when I started interviewing her about the ingredients she and her partner Gary Torres choose for Nammi, the sky-blue Vietnamese fusion food truck plastered with a cartoon logo. I was pushing her about the baguettes she stuffs with pork, beef and other items to create her delicious banh mi sandwiches, but she wouldn't cough up the bakery. All she would tell me was that she specified the recipe based on a Vietnamese style baguette that used a little rice flour in the mix.

Randy Wolken was clear from the start he intended to put multiple food trucks on the streets of Dallas as soon as he could. Last April he told CoA he intended to have three Gandolfo's trucks running by the end of the year. A bricks-and-mortar deli was in the works as well. Half way through this year, there's still only a single truck, though a girl working the window told me a second is not far away.
