Sheherezad food truck

I visited the Sheherezad food truck at lunch today. You should go there. This is not the usual dry schwarma and falafel. According to Eater Boston, it's run by Burke Weston, who came from Hamersley's. Entree selections were a cinnamon-spiced chicken stew, beef kubba (which I know as kibbeh; mixed with bulgur wheat and toasted almond slivers) over rice, and a cauliflower pita with fresh herbs and pickled veggies. There were also some appetizer and "snack" sized dishes and a dessert, which I can't remember now but I think was billed as an Iranian pastry.

I got the beef kubba, topped with roasted eggplant and tomato, and it made for a very satisfying lunch. The rice, in particular, was fantastic. I'm not one of those people who eats plain white rice for fun, but there was something about the texture of this rice. It reminded me of stuck-pot rice/taddiq but without the browning. It cost $7.50 and it took all of two minutes from the time I walked up to the truck to the time I walked away with my lunch.

Seriously, go there.
