Sang on Wheels -- Potential Food-truck winner

Marty L. | Aug 18, 2011 10:11 AM

I much enjoy trying out the many local food trucks, but although I've had some success at a few lately -- Feeling Crabby and Tasty Kabob, in particular -- I think most are not remotely worth the money and certainly not a long wait (e.g., Red Hook). The other day was another example of this -- EatWonky's poutine, which I'd been eager to try, was a gloppy mess, almost inedible. But then I tripped upon Sang on Wheels -- run by a Laotian haircutter, of all things! Not much on her menu, but the two things I tried -- something she calls "Drunken Noodles" (but it's not like the standard-issue Thai offering ), and "egg rolls" -- were really very good, and had much more homestyle, idiosyncratic character than almost anything in trucks 'round here. Not anything as special as the Laotian menu at Bangkok Golden, mind you -- this is a food truck, after all -- but it showed real promise. Or at the very least, it made me eager to return to try other Laotian items. (The chef said she offers different things off and on; but it sounded somewhat haphazard -- let's encourage her to cook up the real stuff!)

Anyone else tried it? What are her best dishes?
