I can’t believe I’m writing another post about a food truck, but it’s not my fault if they keep coming out of the woodwork. Another potential entrant in the Twitter wars, Portu Galo has posted up on Thayer and George this afternoon for just its second day in business. As you can probably guess, it puts a Portuguese spin on a combination of sandwiches and “small bites.” It’s probably a bit cheaper to fill up here than at Mama Kim’s – there’s much more to a $3.75 Bifana sandwich than there is to a $3 Bulgogi slider – and the truck’s novelty means short lines for lunch (for now). Perhaps the biggest kicker? The local bread is delicious and probably preposterously caloric. The bubble hasn’t burst yet: the food is delicious, and Portu Galo isn’t going anywhere. Check below for the truck’s menu; it’s got a great selection.
Ratty Vs. V-Dub, 12/5
Ratty: Grilled Chicken Alfredo Sandwich, Roasted Broccoli Rabe, Shepherd’s Pie
V-Dub: Spicy Pepper Pulled Chicken, BBQ Beef Sandwich, Broccoli Salsa Alfredo, Spicy French Fries
Advantage: V-Dub. If it's gonna be broccoli, we prefer salsa alfredo to plain old roasted rabe.
