Food!: Truckin Delicious Review
A few weeks ago, I went with my boss and co-worker to lunch. We usually don't know where to go when we get in the car and spend at least five minutes trying to figure it out. This one day, we all were in the mood for a food truck. Earlier we had tried but it was on Monday that all the food trucks in Fort Smith decided to take a day off. We quickly decided on Truckin Delicious because of the rave reviews and praise it had received. It was parked next to Valet Cleaners behind Central Mall on that cold day. The wind blew quickly past us as we walked up and looked at the chalkboard menu. My colleagues both got a burrito that sounded good, but something else caught my eye. "The Cuban." The slow roasted pulled pork was the main meat of the sandwich but it wasn't alone as it was topped with melted Swiss cheese and a slice of grilled ham above that. The ham acted as the wall between the pork and the coleslaw. I'm personally never impressed by coleslaw but this was the exception. It was fresh and was lightly coated in a jalapeño lime honey dressing. Homemade pickles laid on the bottom while the mustard was on top. This was all contained in a jalapeño cheddar bun that, to me, was the star of the meal. The bun was fresh and soft but never got soggy or broke apart on me. The meat was top notch and the mustard wasn't overpowering. The coleslaw did a great job in balancing the flavors while the pickles were always a surprise. The home made chips were light which balanced the sandwich and the weight it brought. The Cuban wasn't the only thing that caught my eye, as they had some side dishes but also desserts. Simply put, I followed my Cuban with an Oreo Cheesecake Egg roll. No, you didn't miss read that. It looks just like an egg roll with chocolate sauce on it and inside is a delight. It was a dessert that ended my meal perfectly as it wasn't too rich since it was following a somewhat heavy sandwich. This was the only time I've been there so far, but it won't be my last. Definitely a place you should check out!
