The ladies of the L.A.-based Nom Nom Truck are in town this weekend only, slingin’ bahn mi, Vietnamese tacos, and cafe sua da from their custom-designed food wagon. The Nomsters, in collaboration with the Food Network, are cruising the country, bringing bahn mi to the masses. Find the Truck (and the camera crew) in the parking lot at Pinkberry (5601 Magazine Street, across the street from Whole Foods in uptown New Orleans) on Saturday and Sunday from noon to 8 pm. Schedule change: Saturday from 3-8 at Pinkberry, outside the Spotted Cat on Frenchmen from 10 pm to 1 am, and back at Pinkberry on Sunday from 3-8 pm 6 to 8 pm. Show a receipt from Pinkberry and get $1 off the menu prices.
Featured recently in Saveur, Travel & Leisure, & Sunset magazines, the truck serves up barbecued pork, grilled pork, lemongrass chicken, tofu, and “deli special” sandwiches and tacos. Now, New Orleans isn’t exactly a town deficient in Vietnamese poboys, so I’m itching to see how the West Coast version stacks up against our local favorites.
