Two more food trucks on the West Seattle scene:
LUCKY DEVIL DOUGHNUT CO. DEBUTS TOMORROW: This one makes its first West Seattle appearance tomorrow at the “pod” in the Uptown Espresso parking lot in The Junction, 8 am-2 pm. Lucky Devil is not just about doughnuts as you know them – the signature dish for this truck, according to the news release we received, is the malasada, a fried and sugar-dusted Portuguese creation that is wildly popular in Hawaii, where Lucky Devil’s owner/founder, chef Josh Goldman, lived for 10 years. According to the news release we received from Lucky Devil, they’ll sell you a malasada for a buck. They will also have rotating selections from the rest of their donut menu, which includes everything from a POG (orange-filled donut with guava and passion frosting, also Hawaii-inspired) to Babe the Blu Ox (maple bar with bacon) to the namesake Lucky Devil (chocolate cake dipped in ghost chili-chocolate glaze, with cherry-red drizzle). You can buy donuts in singles, half-dozen, or dozen. By the way, you can track the Uptown food-truck pod at wseattleeats.com (though we notice Lucky Devil’s not there yet – Hallava Falafel has been added for Thursdays, though!). Lucky Devil, meantime, is on Facebook, here.
NEW TACO TRUCK ON ALKI: You might already have spotted the La Playita truck at the beach, since it’s been there about a week:
La Playita is set up in the Alki Auto Repair lot. Jeff shared the photo (THANKS!) and reports that “the tacos are very good.” (No web or FB page for this truck that we can find.)
