so first of all, a big thanks to the people of west seattle, west seattle blog, and lora and the hotwire crew...Was a busy day...
so what is happening this week...well we should be finishing up the second trailer (nice work parker, justin and crew)..the hood just went in and we are now finishing wiring/equipment install etc. It is pretty exciting and she is going to be beautiful.
the walk up window is in the final stages of the processes with the HD, so that is good..i am hoping for approval this week, but we will see.
bacon jam...still searching for a USDA kitchen..just very difficult and I am not sure where to go from here..but will keep on trying to find the kitchen needed for getting bacon jam to the world.
and food cravings for the coming weeks...crispy fried chicken with apple celeriac slaw/ water chestnut, plum sauce, galangal, spicy pickled cabbage and shortrib lettuce wraps
also...we start with mariners games next home stand...
thinking a menu of
burger/fries, lemongrass pork belly sammy, pickled cabbage slaw/fries....fried spaghetti sandwich, ...poo.....a dessert ..

-so...a couple of things...
we will be starting west
key bank parking lot next to the farmers market.
-Event season is starting up and our dates are starting to book up…we will have 2 trailers this summer, so double the fun!
-also, with the change in the tax rate we are really forced to look at our costs. Unfortunately, We are going to have to start charging tax on our food. We aren't going to do pennies, but will round down to the next nickel. We know it is frustrating, and we have been “eating” it so to speak for the past year….but we are unable to afford that anymore….thanks for understanding…
menu for next week...
online ordering will be down for a couple of days, thanks for your patience
grass fed beef, cambazola, arugula, bacon jam, brioche, handcut FF
potato fennel soup with house made crème fraiche
skillet cheesesteak, grass fed beef, fontina and
sweet peppers and onions, soft roll
Vinaigrette, and panzanella style salad,
chocolate and puff pastry
handcut FF, herbs, gravy, cheddar and jack cheese
