Definitely didn’t think I’d be doing a restaurant review of a food truck, but I’m excited to tell you about this great find!
Eating “clean” at home is relatively easy once you make the decision to do it, but eating out has a lot of challenges and temptations. I have definitely become more aware of what I’m eating both at home and out but it can be really hard to find things that fit the way I want to eat when out. Most of the times I stick to vegetarian options when I’m out since at least I know I’m avoiding “questionable” meat that way.
Last month there was a local event bringing together local farmers so consumers could meet them, buy products and talk with them about their growing practices. It was a lot of fun and really informative for me. I noticed a food truck was there and caught that it was organic bbq! I was excited to see it and took their info down but had lunch plans so I didn’t get anything. Then I realized I had locked my keys in the car! Chris came to my rescue and in return I offered to buy his lunch from the food truck. I got him a chicken sandwich and after stealing a bite of it was really jealous of his lunch!
I started following Smokin’ Fresh on Facebook, hoping I would cross paths with them soon. This weekend they were at a food truck event in Shawnee that just so happened to be where I was for work. Being a brisket fan I was very excited to see it on their menu. The brisket was really tender and moist. I love that they use farm to market bread (a local KC company), which happens to be my favorite bread. The sauce was a bit mild for me (I prefer a bit of a kick) but all and all it was a tasty sandwich. I’m really looking forward to trying their pork next time.
It’s really great to see a local business, supporting local farmers & companies while serving high quality ingredients at really affordable prices. They even have a variety of vegetarian and gluten free options.
If you’re in KC find these guys and give them a try. You’ll be glad you did!
