Followup: Who’s dishing up at West Seattle Mobile Chowdown

Now that Mobile Chowdown is confirmed for The Junction on October 2nd – two dozen food trucks in the street on California SW between Oregon and Edmunds – one of the organizers, Michi Suzuki, has shared a partial list of who’s participating: Marination Mobile (which of course is a West Seattle fave each Saturday at 35th/Graham), Where Ya at Matt, Skillet, Maximus Minimus, Veraci Pizza, Parfait Ice Cream, Lumpia World (a West Seattle regular for a while), Andrae’s Kitchen (Walla Walla), Raney Brothers BBQ, Street Donuts, Big Food Mobile, Pretzelwagen, Snout & Co., A Lunch in Hand. Unlike some past “gated” Mobile Chowdowns, organizers say this one will be open to all ages, no admission fee. More details are promised as it gets closer; you can also watch the official website.

    I hope the trucks offer “sample sizes” so I can try a bit of everything! This stomach can only handle so much goodness!

    If the folks who operate these mobile-kitchens can deliver product on par with my favorite local haunts like Circa, Fresh Bistro, Mashiko, & Spring Hill I eagerly await their arrival. Any suggestions as to which mobile-kitchens to try when they are in West Seattle? Thanks!

    Food trucks serve street food, if you want restaurant food go to a restaurant. Which isn’t to say food truck food isn’t good (it is), but to rattle off a string of high end restaurants to compare it to strikes me as intentionally ridiculous.

    Austin- agreed!

    Can’t wait. Those spam sliders are my FAV!!!! Yay marination mobile!

    Austin, have you actually eaten at any of these gourmet mobile kitchens? The chef of our local gourmet mobile was trained at the French Culinary Institute and his lunch specials might be lobster bisque or a fois gras terrine. Is that your definition of “street food?” Kind of a shame your preconceived notions of “high-end restaurants” precludes you from experiencing some first-rate gourmet experiences.

    If it comes from a truck it is street food, and there is a difference between sitting down indoors with a server at a place with a full kitchen and being given food on a paper plate from someone out of a window, regardless of what the food is. The term “street food” isn’t as derogatory as you make it out to be. Kind of a shame you don’t know the difference. As long as we’re up on our high horses shaming things you might as well shame the assumptions you’re making in your post there chief.

    Finally Veraci Pizza in W.Sea, if only for a day! Not a food truck and not your average street food.

Sorry, comment time is over.
