Ever have a Vietnamese taco?
"Hello! My name is Misa Chien, and I am the co-owner of Nom Nom Truck. We are currently traveling across the country alongside the Food Network with our food truck, and NYC is our final stop! We are filming the largest Food Network show of the year, and we would love for you to spread the word!
Nom Nom Truck is a female-owned business, and our co-owner and chef Jen cooks up delicious Vietnamese fusion dishes such as our Lemongrass Chicken taco (just featured in Saveur Magazine for the best tacos in LA!), our Carne Asada Vietnamese sandwich, and our Honey Grilled Pork Banh Mi (just featured in Sunset Magazine!). We are also happy to say that we were just voted best restaurants in LA by Travel and Leisure Magazine!
Our goal is to create delicious and fresh food that will make NYC say NOM! (Nom means when you eat something and it's so delicious you have to make a noise - nom nom!)
We will be serving in the Astoria area of Queens this afternoon (~2 PM)."
And this wasn't part of the letter, but they are in a competition and need to make $500 in Queens in order to move onto the next round. They don't know exactly where they will be yet, but "near the beer garden" is a sure thing.
(Don't worry, this is the only pro-taco truck post you will ever see here.)
