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, 4/21
Ratty: Cuban Stir Fry with Beef, Roasted Butternut Squash, Banana Chocolate Cupcakes
V-Dub: Breaded Chicken Fingers, Steamed Green Beans, Banana Chocolate Cupcakes
Advantage: V-Dub. If I'm going to be having banana chocolate cupcakes on Friday, I want them after my chicken fingers.
