I recently had the pleasure of trying out a local food truck in town called Vucca Street Food. Their mission is to give Italian flavor with an Italian-American twist. Not only did I try this spot I met the owner and jumped in the kitchen cooking it up with the crew.
Okay, okay… I watched the cooking. None the less I got to try more than a few of their signature dishes that drives the customers wild and I want to share them with you. Keep reading.
About Vucca Street Food
Every Saturday during the Riverside Arts Market you can find Vucca Street Food truck tucked away in the food court area. More than likely you will find a line. Why? Because the people are looking to indulge in hefty fresh Italian dishes packed with flavor yet. Inside you will find the owner, Damian Del Pizo and his crew working hard in a full kitchen producing mouthwatering dishes promptly.
I got the chance to meet Damien and was given a boarding pass to enter the truck to watch the team hard at work. First of all, this was my first time ever being on a food truck, so this was an absolute shock to learn Vucca’s food truck is comparable to that of a commercial kitchen. They literally are a fully operating kitchen and staff. We are talking fridges, an oven, fryers, and a gas stove top. All the ingredients used were fresh and well proportioned. I say all that to say, you’re eating a real meal when you choose Vucca Street Food.
Here I watch the crew fry up large delish shrimp, toss their infamous brussel sprouts, and prepare food within minutes of an order being placed. Customer service is extremely important.
What I Tried At Vucca Street Food
Brussel Sprouts- deep fried sprouts tossed with balsamic, pomegranate, fresh mint, hot honey. These are what made them famous and I can see why. I love brussels, so to have them fried to a crisps and tossed with the different sauces took this dish to the next level. (9.5/10)
Lemon Tagliatelle -fresh egg pasta tossed in a light cream sauce with fresh lemon & thyme, I added shrimp. This dish reminded me of an Alfredo, it was tasty but it’s nothing I would personally order again. (6.5 /10)
Buffalo Jawn – season fried chicken thigh tossed in truffle hot sauce & hot honey. Gorgonzola dolce (blue cheese), shaved red onion & shredded lettuce on a Big Marty’s potato roll. Another hit! The choice of chicken is chicken thigh and fried to perfection. The mix of sauces and thick slice of cheese made this sandwich mouth watering. So good. (9.5/10)
I also got to try a vegetarian off-menu item a pepper sandwich. Lightly grilled peppers, mozzarella cheese, olive oil, fresh spinach and peppers. All sandwiched between a piece of ciabatta bread. (7.5/10)
