You are now the owner of a food truck. What do you serve?
Assuming the food truck can be custom built, I would do barbecue.
I do a lot of smoking and grilling, and have read every book I've been able to get my hands on. I figure I could get by on that.
I'd sell hamburgers based on ethnic groups. All of them will have to be the same price because of cultural marxism (even though some are objectively better).
That's why you price everything based on the best tasting one. If people ask why your african burger (a pile of elephant dung) costs 10 dollars, tell them about your progressive reasoning and then the hipsters will have to buy at least 1 of them.
One funny thing is that friends and I used to go to a hobby shop on about 1st ave and 72nd in Manhattan and ask for a "sherman tank" it was $20 an in an envelope it was some decent weed.
I'd just show up somewhere late at night with a big vat of premade chili and just dole it out in those bowl-shaped tortillas you see everywhere nowadays
maybe an optional bit of grated cheese on top, or some nachos too.
Bread and butter.
Hipster af, but I'd try to build a brick oven in and crank out fresh bread rolls, then just sell them with a shitload of butter and have some meat and cheese around as add ons.
Assuming I could have a brick oven in it, pizza.
I'mma be honest with you senpai every soup and pasta item and most dessert items are just thawed out before serving. Pretty sure the Baked Potato Soup (comes in a non-branded box) is the same shit you get from any wholesale supplier. http://www.sandridge.com/soups/item/baked-potato-soup-with-bacon.html Will prolly be your best bet.
Assuming that I'm not bound to whatever I know the exact recipe to, I'll serve just white sauce. I'm not even going to bother with the lamb and the rice and all that stuff.
Customers bring whatever meal they have on them, I squeeze a dollop onto their food, fifty cents, thank you next customer.
And if liquid cocaine somehow doesn't sell, at least I'll have barrels of the stuff for my own use.
Bubble tea, smoothies and gyoza's maybe limited quantity of fresh bento boxes at lunch time
The whole Japanese noodle shop thing. I'd have seats right up at front and maybe foldable chairs/tables also infront of the truck
I live in Korea and everyone is like omg bubble tea so great and then I ""drink"" it and it's just sweet syrup tea with fucking gelatinous blobs in it. Like what the FUCK who decided that was a good idea??
> You are now the owner of a food truck. What do you serve?
This would allow for a wide range of foods (pretty much anything that can go in a bowl) and high rate of return for the food truck owner, while giving customers a good selection of hot meals that are also easy to hold on to and eat.
Had pic related a couple of time when they were at the local brew bup (Kuhnhenn's in Warren MI) and it was real tasty, though pretty expensive.
I haven't seen that image macro series since 2007 or 2008. I remember 2006 so well, the peak of my time on /b/, before I abandoned ship in 2008 because of the influx of newfags. I haven't even looked at the place since 2009, maybe once in the early '10s. Do they remember the old memes? Has the flood of shit finally subsided? What's it like?
I would do soups. It would be like the Soup Nazi except I would be nice and it would be a truck.
Soup is a great meal for both buyer and seller. Filling and convenient and time-consuming to cook, so it's good for consumers, cheap and easy to have ready to serve for the seller, just big pots of simmering soups for a fair price.
I'd go for variety and simple, but filling recipies.
A couple pizza by the slice options.
A burger made to order.
A bowl of fresh pasta in a homemade ragu.
Turkey or chicken tamales.
Pretty much my staple dishes that I've gotten down pretty well, plus a few American essentials.
Honestly though it's more about location and price. I 've thought about opening a good truck since my town has many good locations, but I'm not fiscally ready.
TOIL AND TROUBLE!
Take random ingredients from customers and homeless people, mix it with batter and cabbage, fry, serve.
I'll continue doing this until I am shut down and arrested.
Given that I live in Portland Oregon this should be easy enough to pull off as some stupid pseudo-offbeat hipster thing, like everything else over here.
Most food trucks have shit drink options, so I'd set up near others and focus on drinks. Fresh coffee, loose leaf tea, fresh smoothies, iced teas with simple syrup that I boil down in the back, then fruit preservatives from making simple syrup.
overpriced burgers made with cheap shitty frozen ingredients but its served by hot girls.
I would serve funnel cakes like it pic related, lemonade, buffalo wings with fried rice, toasted sandwiches, and other drinks
tonkotsu ramen in the winter and sushi in the summer
Save up some money and do it. My cousin and I used to run a lemonaide stand in NYC and made mint from that as little kids. We'd make sure to be on the sunny side of the avenue where it was hottest so people would be more likely to be thirsty.
Breakfast sandwiches served with hash browns/fried potatoes. I'd never work it though, I don't wake up early enough for breakfast.
Alternatively, sandwiches paired with soups for dipping, a different pairing for every day of the business week.
