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, 4/25
Ratty: Turkey and Wild Rice Soup, Chicken Cutlet Parmesan, Vegetarian Sandwich Bar, Swiss Fudge Cookies
V-Dub: Minestrone Soup, Steak and Pepper Fajitas, Black Bean and Spinach Tacos, Refried Beans, Swiss Fudge Cookies
Advantage: V-Dub. Why would we need a vegetarian sandwich bar when sandwiches are customizable anyway?
Ratty: Carrot Ginger Soup with Agave, Lemon Sesame Chicken, Spinach with Toasted Sesame Seeds, Magic Bar
V-Dub: Bean Chili, Mac And Cheese Bar, Corn Pudding, Braised Rainbow Swiss Chard, Florida Key Lime Pie
Advantage: V-Dub. Cheesy as it may sound, there's really no food quite as comforting as mac and cheese.
