I haven’t been posting on Hungrywoolf as much as I would like to and I still have a lot of posts to catch up on from my trip to England and France as well as a Slow Food weekend in Athens (Ohio) and some other random bits and pieces.
One of the reasons that I have been neglecting Hungrywoolf.com is that Taco Trucks Columbus has been really busy. You may have read about our taco TV experience on the tacotruckscolumbus website. Well here is the result of our day filming with 10TV.
Our website and the taco trucks were also featured in the Columbus Dispatch and as well as the article, there is a fantastic slide show. We were very lucky that Eric Albrecht (an amazing photographer) accompanied us for a Dispatch Taco Tour. We were also featured in a Columbus Foodcast and organized a sucessful Columbus Underground meat-up to share the delights of Los Guachos Al Pastor tacos. Taco trucks Columbus has now had over 40,000 hits and the google map has had even more.
We have also been following up on leads of new trucks and trying to keep the website updated as trucks move and we get new information. This is a great time of year for taco trucking and I hope that you will have as much fun discovering Mexican street food as we have. We love it when we go to a truck and someone says that they found out about it through our blog.
Yesterday the taco trucks Columbus team met up for the opening of Dirty Frank’s, a new restaurant venture by wonder-woman Liz Lessner and her Fiance Harold LaRue. Dirty Frank’s is a hot dog restaurant with some interesting variations on the classic dog (pictured is the Ohioana with spicy corn relish), slushies and all sorts of other goodies, including deep fried leeks! We were caught on video by Columbus Alive. It was so good we ended up going back again the same day. Thanks Liz – and congratulations.
Apart from our travels, June had some great food highlights. I already posted about Alana’s and here are a few other random ones:
Black raspberry and mulberry picking at Lucky Cat Farm
Grilled figs stuffed with goat cheese and wrapped in bacon.
Lamb burgers with pate (in the middle) and goats cheese on top (not for the faint hearted).
Discovering La Tapatia Mexican grocery store with its amazing produce section (who can resist 10 limes for $1)
