Food Trucks

Food trucks are all the rage in Kansas City.

Not only can any food specialty be served up out of the rear end of these beasts, but every Tom, Dick and Harriet in KC either reviews or pimps them.

WNBTv avoids food trucks, having once miserably suffered an interminable 48 hours of pain and degredation, the noxious results of a toxic ‘sloppy joe’ ladled up from the dark interior of a ‘roach coach’ at the old G.E.M. discount store.

Moreover WNBTv is not enamoured of eating on the street, with all its attendant sartorial dangers. 1 But to each their own, we often mumble with our mouth full.

However, the way the local foodies rave about food trucks, you might get the impression Kansas City was a food truck mecca, with the devout making long, arduous pilgrimages to the Midwest in hopes of cadging but a moist crumb from the ideal cupcake. 2

Unfortunately, nothing could be further from the truth.

We hate to be the bearer of bad news, but Kansas City isn’t on anyone’s list of Best Food Truck cities, much less in the Top 5 for North America.

We think the whole fad is yet another product of the e-vil modern Tupperware salesmen. 3

That being the case, whichever roach coach one patronizes make sure they at least offer bicarbonate of soda.

WNBTv - Good TV!

  1. I couldn’t agree more. The way I see it, if the food you serve is any good, you can actually stay in one place and your customers will come to you and you won’t have to drive all around town chasing your customers down.

    1. There’s a man who knows his food!

      One of the things I’ve always wondered about was how one kept all engine exhaust out of the food prep area in those things; I would imagine it to be impossible.

Something to say...?
