The soon-to-be-famous pig truck
First of all, thanks to Keren at Frantic Foodie for putting together another great event last night!
As you can see from above, Seattle now has a pig-truck to serve your pork consumption needs. The name of it is MaximusMinimus. You can order your pulled pork sandwich as a “maximus” (savory-spicy) or “minimus” (sweet). This spicy or sweet choice applies to a number of other menu choices, from the drinks (ginger-lemonade or a hibiscus blend) to the slaws – I tried the sweeter apple slaw.
Overall there’s a general consensus among people I’ve talked to in Seattle that they don’t quite get BBQ here. But I have to say this was pretty darn good! Overall my minimus sandwich was the right balance of sweet and a little spicy, with just a little touch of cheesiness. Yes cheese, I figure the Beecher’s people would put good stuff on these sandwiches. My only off-key comments are that the bun was fresh but maybe not quite right for this type of sandwich, and my “chips”—mainly what appeared to be sweet potatoes and green beans—were seasoned well, but half of them were soggy.
While driving around with Mike one rainy night, we kept passing the darkened windows of coffee shops. Where are the night owls to go? Here’s a list I came up with – please comment if you know of others!
