Many of the first food trailer parks on the East Side have now been converted into space for hotels or apartment complexes. Cue the sad trombone. But this Thai food truck is holding strong in a small park on Cesar Chavez. There’s plenty of seating available for both lunch and dinner, and it’s definitely dog and kid friendly. The menu is limited, but so many items are hits - like the Pad Kapow, featuring slightly spicy ground pork on a bed of rice, basil and a fried egg. The pork skewers on special are another highlight, and the mango salads and tofu options are good to mix into your order. It’s BYOB, so plan accordingly.
