The Sammich Truck: Picking Seattle's best sammich
Not even the horrifying anthropomorphized truck/sandwich hybrid cartoon on the side of this new mobile food operation can spoil the appetite of our Really-Good-at-Eating correspondent, Eric, who hit up the food truck to see which of the amazing fist-meals on their no-frills, five-item menu can put a smile on your face as wide as the one on the aforementioned cartoon.
Topped w/ mozzarella cheese, fresh basil, and a ladle full of rich marinara sauce, this Italian sub is giving the boot to all the other meatball sandwiches you've tried.
Eric Says: "This sucker gets one star for each meatball!"
This Caprese-style number is made with fried cheese(!), and is apparently almost as big as Eric's head.
Eric Says: "The Caprese would only be better if it WAS as big as my head."
Their Grinder is topped w/ pepperoni, spicy capocollo, Provolone, balsamic aioli, a drizzle of red wine vinegar, and will make one particular organ, your stomach, very happy.
Eric Says: "I love anything -- even that skateboarding movie with the chick from House M.D. in it -- with "Grind" in its name."
Can you get wit', as they say in Philly, a mountain of premium beef w/ sautéed onions and peppers that's smothered in melted Swiss cheese?
Eric Says: "As Black Sheep says, I think I'll get 'wit this, 'cause this is where it's at."
White cheddar, yellow cheddar, and mozzarella, plus oven roasted tomatoes and caramelized onions, equal a grilled cheese so good it'll make you intolerant of anyone who can't consume lactose.
Eric Says: "By this point my stomach was so full, I was seeing stars... and I'll give this guy at least 3.5 out of 4."
We say: It looks like the thing that most horrifies Eric is someone stealing his helping of the only other thing on TST's menu -- fresh fried potato chips.
