Food Trucks Update

Charlie’s Buns is here tonight, from 5 to 8pm. Yay!

But we don’t expect Lumpia World after all. From their Facebook page:

Good morning Fan Family. Hope everyone had a great weekend with you families. After much thought, BIG L MOBILE will not be out and about this week. HOWEVER, we will still be facilitating delivery / pick-up orders. Thinking of ordering frozen Lumpia for Thanksgiving appetizers, we will be processing orders up to 5pm on Weds. We will be closed Thursday & Friday.

Food Truck Update – A Pod for the Winter


Pods for the Winter

As the chilly temperatures decend upon us, you might be thinking that it is the end of food truck season. Far from it my foodie friends! The trucks are just getting better! We are starting to see some Portland-esque pods developing, with one stop shopping. Think of it has a mini food truck event without the lines. Here’s a little info on [three…we only included ours! Go here for the full article] of the most popular spots for your weekday AND weekend munching pleasure.

Neighborhood: Highland Park/West Seattle

Exact Location:
12th and Holden in the Highland Park Improvement Club parking lot

The Dish:
Currently two trucks on Saturdays from 11 am. – 3 pm. (perhaps later if people keep coming!) but they are hoping to add another truck or two. Also in the plans – kids activities and live music. They also have covered tables and chairs, just in case there’s drizzle. Plenty of street parking and there’s a park down the street with non-stop kids soccer games, just in case you need a little extra entertainment.

The Trucks:
Lumpia World and Curry Now

Highland Park, Riverview and all around! Come out and get some yummy hot food on Saturdays, rain or shine. Meet friendly folks in a spot that is becoming a focal point for the neighborhood! What a great opportunity for us to have good food nearby again! Support our pod!

Hooray for the Food Trucks!

Thanks to the West Seattle Blog for the article and pictures of the food trucks’ first day at HPIC. We were so busy eating ginger pork lumpia and curry chicken tacos and talking with friends and neighbors and other happy customers, we forgot to take pictures!

There was a steady stream of customers from the opening at 11am till closing at 3pm, and the proprietors of both Lumpia World and Curry Now said they had a good day. Derrick of Lumpia World envisions an on-going pod of several food trucks in our parking lot, and we think the neighborhood and folks from all around will love it!

They plan to be at HPIC regularly on Saturdays, so come out and support good food in the neighborhood, and have yourself a tasty meal. There are sheltered tables and chairs, and a very good chance of running into friends.
