You guys! There’s a Hapa Food Truck! I was, and still am, so freaking excited about it! Not only is the food stupid good, but I love how they are combining the whole East meets West cuisines! Ergo Hapa!
It was a balls-hot Sunday afternoon, and two of my dear friends, Brian and Alison, and I were bored. So we decided to jump on a train and head for Stamford, Connecticut and try out the Hapa Food Truck I’ve been obsessing over. Total spur of the moment foodie adventure!
Between the 3 of us we ate:
Philippine Chicken Adobo Taco – Chicken Slow Cooked in Cane Vinegar and Soy Sauce, Shredded, topped with Pico de Gallo and our House Aioli.
Korean Short Rib Taco – Braised Beef Short Rib, Sesame Asian Slaw, and House Aioli.
The Adobe Chicken and the Short Rib Taco’s were so good! Bold flavors wrapped in a corn tortilla.
The Hapa Burger – Grass-Fed Beef Topped with Pork Belly, Vermont Cheddar, Caramelized Onion, Lettuce, Tomato, House Aioli, on our Signature Ube Bun.
Let’s just take a minute and admire this beauty. One of the best burgers I have ever had – the Pork Belly melts in your mouth like candied pork goodness. Oh, and that Ube (Purple Yam) Bun, soft and sweet, and totally bringing umami to this gorgeous burger.
Furikaki Fries – Shoe String Fries, House Aioli, and Furikake (Japanese seasoning).
I have a jar of Furikake and am already planning on what else I can use it on!
Crispy Brussel Sprout Salad – Pico de Gallo, and Papaya Seed Dressing.
I love brussel sprouts. I think anyone who says “ew” to them obviously hasn’t had brussel sprouts properly prepared, and these were perfection. Nice and crispy just how I like them.
The lovely people of Hapa Food Truck were so nice! I even got to interview George who is one of the owners!
Good food and good friends. What more could a gal want? Oh, I know. How about Hapa Food Truck opening up a location in NYC so I don’t have to take a train and an Uber to get to them.
