>Scratch Lunch

9 Jun

>I found the ScratchTruck for lunch today. They had plenty food — nearly a week of operation has helped them fine-tune how much to carry. “Modern mobile comfort food,” their slogan sets the bar high–

[Drumroll, please]

–And they clear it easily! Quite a few items on the menu. (Click to embiggen.) I had the burger (good-tasting beef, flame-grilled, with Gorgonzola and bacon marmalade, on a nice Cibatta-esque bun), fries (skin on, twice-fried, excellent taste; not much salt and didn’t need it) and their outstanding watermelon-jalapeno lemonade. The latter is refreshing and not at all hot; the peppers are only singing harmony.
Just a A few photos will follow. I was hungry, so I didn’t snap many before digging in. Service was friendly and fast, especially for cooked-to-order food.

Scratch: food from a truck. First-rate food. Roberta X approved!

    >I've gotten some really kick arse Mexican food from some less than photogenic roach coaches. Plus, the menu is authentic – organ meat fillings for tacos and such. Doesn't bother a farm boy like me. It's a gamble, but someone has to do it.

    >And to fill in that blank spot on their website: how much was the bill?

    >$10, Noah; cheaper to hit a drive-thru but in this case, you do get what you pay for. My typical lunch tab at the luncheonette across from the Skunk Works is $7.50 to 10.00; they're okay but not in the same league as the food truck.

    >That's better than I expected – the lack of up-front pricing on their website seemed odd. From what they're serving, it sounds right in line with what I'd expect to pay for a full order from a higher-end lunch place.
