Since Food Network was doing their food truck filming this summer, I think a few of the other local food truck folks wanted to get in on the show.

I’ve never been to the Touch Supper Club Food Truck (been to the restie, but not the truck) so I decided to pop on by.

Also secretly hoping they had some Spam on their mobile menu too.

Touch Supper Club – Kiss my Grits mobile!

Also huge kudos for using a local Cleveland company and local parts.

Those Rustbelt guys are pretty awesome

Having a short attention span and ready to try something different, of course I was going to bust out the 2 for $7 special…and maybe a shrimp taco too.

Menu for the masses

Serving the masses

Pulled pork tacos: Apple rosemary BBQ sauce, Cheddar, lettuce, and crispy onions. (2 for $7)

They were OK as the BBQ sauce might have over powered the taco.

Glad to see an entire leaf of lettuce there too…not the usual shredded cheapo stuff from other vendors.

Apple rosemary BBQ sauce was nice…but I think it might have either been more of a chutney than sauce.

BTW-from what I know, that’s not exactly cheddar. Perhaps a “Colby” descriptor might better suit this taco.

Fried Mac and Cheese tacos: Crispy Fried Mac & Cheese, lettuce, pancetta, scallion, and sour cream. (2 for $7)

These were just we OK too.

In the first bite, it was kinda dry as I didn’t get much sour cream…the binding agent.

Good crisp on the Mac& Cheese, but insides were barely warm.

What scallion?

All the ingredients individually are great, but if there isn’t a binding agent then it’s a cobb salad without dressing.

Maybe an addition of some pancetta creme fraise?

Cilantro Lime Shrimp Taco: Marinated shrimp, bacon corn salsa, and lettuce.  (2 for $7)

Shrimp was well cooked and I enjoyed the non-bacon corn salsa.

But there could have been a better binding agent to tie all these separate items together…maybe like more salsa in the corn or maybe goat cheese.

Maybe avocado.

Having great ingredients is the foundation of great dishes…but if you don’t pinpoint the thread that binds them together, your tapestry of culinary genius will unravel before your eyes.

Jeez-I gotta stop reading fancy novels.

So I’m reading…

If you really want to know, I was unimpressed by the national food trucks that came here for the race. Nothing to write home about.

But good day to see our local Cleveland food types mob the scene and support our local food folks.
