First Look: off the hook food truck
Y'all noticed it: we have a new food truck in the lot behind Ferment (if you put 403 Portway Ave in your navigation and look for the parking lot on the corner of N 2nd and Anchor Way, you'll see it). Here's the 411
The menu is simple: fish and chips. Expect a nice portion (we got 3-4 pieces per order) of light, crisp fish in a house-made gluten-free batter. An order comes with fish, fries, coleslaw, house-made tartar sauce, and Nuoc Cham (Vietnamese fish sauce).
Each day, the truck will serve a "catch of the day," which can be anything from halibut to sole to Albacore to Ling cod. All fish comes from Oregon or the Washington Coast.
For drinks, you'll find a selection of Blue Bus kombucha and Columbia Gorge Organic drinks like lemonade.
For now, 11:30 to sold out or at least 4 pm Friday-Sunday. Open for the summer season, through at least September, perhaps longer (if they close for winter, they would re-open next year).
Payment accepted: cash, card, Apple Pay
