food truck field trip: off the grid mc coppin hub and more smitten!

This post is a few weeks overdue, but so tasty I figure it’s better late than never.

So, remember when I said I had an issue with favorites? I wasn’t lying.

Chris and I liked Smitten Ice Cream’s Sweet Corn ice cream so much that we drove all the way back to San Francisco again the following weekend to get some more before the seasonal flavors changed at the end of the month. This time I got the regular size instead of small and added a pizzelle cone (they were out last time). It was just as delicious as I’d remembered it.

Since we couldn’t really justify driving all the way to San Francisco just for ice cream (or maybe we just weren’t comfortable admitting it), we decided to hit up some food trucks on the way. We opted for Off the Grid at McCoppin Hub, which featured all new trucks for us. I chose Eire Trea, which offers Irish and Eritrean cuisine, because I’ve never seen anything quite like it. The owners of this truck were born and raised in Ireland and Eritrea and bringing together each of their country’s favorites on the streets of San Francisco.I selected the Ziggy Wrap, and to be honest, I don’t remember exactly what was in it and I can’t find a good description of it anywhere online, so let me tell you what I do know. First of all, this wrap was huge. I shared a few bites with Chris and I still couldn’t finish it. Definitely a good one for when you’re REALLY hungry.As for the inside, it was a combo of chicken, sauce, assorted veggies and rice. For some reason the flavor kind of reminded me of a spicy vegetable lasagna with rice and chicken. Interesting, right? While that probably wasn’t the flavor they were going for, it was definitely a unique experience. Looking back, I probably should have opted for the chicken curry or curry fries, which seem to be their more popular menu items. Next time!
