First look: The Salsa Truck cooks on board, and the shortcomings of Chicago's new food truck stands
Chicago's first food truck with the new Mobile Food Preparer license, allowing cooking on board, hit the street Tuesday at lunch. During prep, The Salsa Truck owner Dan Salls said on WBEZ's Morning Shift that he'd make quesadillas and tacos at the food truck stand at 600 W. Chicago Ave.
Just after noon, a line about a dozen deep stretched across the sidewalk, ringed by three television camerapeople and two food bloggers, including yours truly.
Food was cooked on board, including cameron quesadillas, "shrimp marinated in homemade achiote with pineapple" so says the menu, and carnitas tacos, "rubbed in our signature spice blend and braised."
