Gone are the days of the roach coach. These are not your dad’s food trucks. Today’s food trucks can be found all around town at hots spots for lunch or late night eats and big food truck events in neighborhoods all over. You’ll find everything from gourmet grilled cheese, BBQ, gyros, cupcakes, Korean tacos, and Filipino inspired rice bowls. Some are content with building their empire solely out on the streets while others use that experience to test their concepts and build equity before opening a brick and mortar location. Joel Crespo and Brian Hardesty are doing both. They started their Filipino inspired food truck Guerrilla Street Food in 2011 and last year open their store at 3559 Arsenal. Taking from Joel’s Filipino roots and Brian’s experience as a chef at places like Harvest, Monarch, and most recently Element, the two are turning out delicious porky offerings like Their Flying Pig, whole roasted hogs, and now a once a month brunch menu with a partnership with Cocktails Are Go for special beverages. They’ll be my first food truck guests and I’m excited to talk to them about their experience and to get tips for my next hog roast.
