|The Ron Burgundy = 4 Tines|
They're called the Ron Burgundy (great film & food tie-in) and by the way, they are superb! One of the guys closing up mentioned the R. Burgundy is featured on the Prime Stache food truck. I didn't know they had a food truck, but I told them I do a food truck series and they suggested I contact the Events Coordinator, Michael Funkhauser and here we go:
T &T 5 Q'S FOR PHILLY FOOD TRUCKST&T: How long have you been in the food industry? And When and Why did you decide to start a food truck?
MF: Prime Stache opened its doors on April 29th, 2013 in Old City,Philadelphia. From minute one, it was obvious that there was one goal in mind... Excellent food and excellent drinks. As the year went on, itbecame more apparent that these recipes had to be put to the streets! Thus became The Prime Stache Food Truck in the fall of 2013.
The early months were tough; food truck season begins in the early months of spring and Prime Stache was late in the game. The cold was no match for the Stache Mobile and we survived through the winter and drove right into the spring of this year. Now we're a force to be reckoned with in the food truck world...Watch out!
T&T: Best elevator pitch - What sets your food truck cuisine apart from others? And what's unique about your truck itself?
MF: You want size AND quality?! Impossible. But wait..it IS possible! Check out our Ron Burgundy for example (our most popular sandwich off of our truck): This thing is enormous!
Come on! Food is everything to us. We take pride in carefully executing every sandwich, soup, appetizer, or entree that leaves our truck. You won't be disappointed. Also, we love to dance to Motown all the time. Ever seen a crew of food truck guys dance to Motown?
T&T: I've eaten 3 of the Ron Burgundy's now, yet never with a beer, and this sandwich is crying for a beer, so now I have to go back for a 4th!
T&T: What do you wish the City would change about Food Truck Vending in Philadelphia?
MF: Please let us park inside of Independence Hall.
T&T: Who's the most famous person to come up to your truck? And/or at what events do you do the most business?
MF: Most famous...? I guess it would have to be Brent Celek of the Philadelphia Eagles. Oh wait, does it count if he owns the business?
MF cont: Most popular events? Beer festivals. Hands down. Our food is built for beer drinkers. Take one bite of our Stache Burger after a few rounds and you'll think you bit into solid gold...without the...texture..and the flavor..? That was a poor example.
|Caught up with the PS Truck on 4/26 at the Lehigh Arts Festival in Fishtown. These two excellent guys on the truck are Frank & John. Frank recommends to my foodie grilling readers a cookbook called Beer Can Chicken: And 74 other off beat recipes for the Grill|
T&T: We always add a little Tinsel into our Tine, so what's your favorite movie genre and favorite movie from that genre?
MF: As long as this isn't posted anywhere..I love romantic comedies. They make me believe there is hope for me yet. John Cusack in either Better off Dead or Say Anything. Just a few tears. Just a few. Oh, but what you should actually post is a category I like to call 'MansportMovies' and my favorite is Bloodsport featuring my man Jean-Claude.
