0 Comments


. JUST A FEW YEARS AGO FOOD TRUCKS IN PITTSBURGH WERE RARE. NOW WE’RE BLESSED WITH A GROWING NUMBER OF TRUCKS OFFER A WIDE VARIETY OF FOODS AROUND TOWN. IN TODAY’S SEGMENT ACTION WE’RE FEATURING NEW TRUCKS ON THE SCENE. RACHEAL CARSON IS HERE WITH US THIS MORNING WITH THE ROUND UP. GOOD TO HAVE YOU ON THE SHOW. YEAH, THANK YOU. IT SMELLS LIKE HEAVEN OVER HERE. I LOVE BEING SURROUNDED BY GOOD SMELLING FOOD. THAT’S NO JOKE AND I LOVE HOW YOU SAID WITH A GROWING SCENE. IF YOU CAN BELIEVE, THERE’S OVER 125 TRUCKS ON THE SCENE IN PITTSBURGH RIGHT NOW. THAT’S INCREDIBLE TO GET TO EAT ALL THE DELICIOUS FOOD. RIGHT. YOU BROUGHT SOME OF YOUR FAVORITES FOR THIS ROUND UP. YES. WE CAN START AT THIS END AND WALK OUR WAY DOWN AND YOU CAN TELL US WHERE EVERYTHING IS FROM. THE FIRST ONE IS BLUE SPAR ROW, THIS ONE IS WORLD CUISINE. I LOVED ONE OF YELPERS DESCRIBED IT AS A MIX UP OF ALL DIFFERENT FOODS AND YOU JUST MIX IT ALL TOGETHER. LITERALLY, THEY TAKE ITEMS AND PUT A TWIST ON IT. YOU’RE NOT GOING TO GET AUTHENTIC TACOS BUT WITH OTHER CULTURES ON IT. THIS IS A BIBANPOP. A KOREAN DISH. IT IS SO DELICIOUS. THEY HAVE A LOT OF DIFFERENT STOPS. WHAT ELSE? THIS IS FRIED CHICKEN AT ITS BEST IN PITTSBURGH. THE OWNER IS FROM HOUSTON AND KNOWS FRIED CHICKEN. HE TOOK IT AND PUT HIS OWN SPIN ON IT AND WHAT I LOVE ABOUT THIS PLAY TOO IS IT’S ALL FRESH. NO FREEZERS, CHICKEN IS FRESH AND THERE’S REAL BELGIAN WAFFLES MADE WITH LOVE. THIS ONE IN FRONT IS THE WAFFLE I SMELLED. IT’S INCREDIBLE. WE HAVE A BLUEBERRY WAFFLE. AND THEN WE HAVE THE FRIED CHICKEN AND THE FRIED CHICKEN COMES, I LOVE SAUCES. THE FRIED CHICKEN COMES WITH THREE DIFFERENT SAUCES. IT COMES WITH MAPLE, SIRACHA AND A HONEY ONE. THAT SMELLS FANTASTIC. GETTING CLOSEST TO THE CHICKEN. TAKE IT THROUGH WHAT’S NEXT. GOUCHO IS ONE OF THE TOP 50 RESTAURANTS IN PITTSBURGH VOTED THROUGH YELP. IT’S SUCH A POPULAR PLACE THEY DECIDED TO MAKE A TRUCK. IT’S INTERESTING WITH ALL OF THESE TRUCKS, MOST PLACES START OUT AS TRUCKS AND GRADUATE TO A BRICK AND MORTAR BUT THESE GUYS ESTABLISH THEMSELVES AT GOUCHO AND THEN BECAME A TRUCK. THESE ARE ALL WOOD GRILLED MEATS. THEY DO THEM SO WELL YOU CAN SMELL THEM MILES AWAY. THIS IS THE REGULAR STEAK DISH IN HERE WITH SAUCES AND THEN WE HAVE A STEAK BURGER. THEY HAVE THEIR STANDING SPOTS TOO. WE CAN GET ONE TO COME TO KDKA. I LOVE THE FACT OWNERS PLAY ON THESE. THEY DO A LOT OF THESE. THEY DO BURGERS, SANDWICHES AND LOADED FRIES. WITH THEIR BURGER THEY DID A TWIST ON AN IN AND OUT BURGER. THERE’S IS AN IN AND AT BURGER. IT’S DOUBLE THE BURGER. I ASKED THE DIFFERENT INGREDIENT AND IT’S A SPECIAL SAUCE. THAT’S ONE THING PEOPLE MENTIONED OVER AND OVER AGAIN. FANTASTIC. OKAY. THEN THE LAST DISHES YOU BROUGHT, MORE SOUTHERN FOOD. THIS ONE, I’VE PICKED OUT AND THEY’RE ACTUALLY JUST A STAND RIGHT NOW. JUST A STAND WORKING TOWARDS A TRUCK OR MAYBE A BRICK AND MORTAR. I’M PULLING FOR THEM. THEY HAVE DELICIOUS BISCUITS. WHAT I LOVE TOO IT’S HIS GRANDMA’S RECIPE FROM ONE OF THE OWNERS AND THEY HAVE DIFFERENT BISCUITS THEY CAN GET. TWO DIFFERENT BISCUITS, THESE ARE HUGE OBVIOUSLY, AND THEN WE HAVE A STRAWBERRY JAM PIMENTO CHEESE BIG SOUTHERN INSPIRED FLAIR AND THEN WE HAVE A GREEN EGGS AND HAM AND THEN THE GRAVY BISCUITS. THAT’S A CLASSIC. WISE COUNTY, IT’S JUST SO GOOD THEY ALL TAKE FROM THESE INSPIRED RECIPES TOO. I LOVE IT. THIS IS A BIG THING. NEW TO MILLVILLE, PITTSBURGH AREA, TALK TO US ABOUT WHAT PEOPLE CAN EXPERIENCE THERE. YOU CAN HEAD TO THE FOOD TRUCK PARK. IT’S FRIDAY, SATURDAY AND SUNDAY. THEY HAVE FIVE TO SIX TRUCKS THROUGHOUT THE WEEKEND ROTATING BETWEEN THE AFTERNOON AND THE NIGHT. AND YOU CAN HEAD OUT TO ONE OF THE MANY TRUCKS. THE SCHEDULE IS ONLINE AND THE COOL THING IS THEY HAVE BEER AND WINE ALSO. IT’S ALL LOCAL. LOVE LOCAL. LOVE THE FOOD TRUCK PARK ALONG THE RIVER FRONT. THANK YOU SO MUCH. SHE’S THE MAGGER FOR YELP PITTSBURGH. GOOD TO BE WITH YOU TODAY.
