Yesterday, was "Something on a Stick Day" and what better way to have a belated celebration of this day than stopping by Stick It Food Truck!
Stick It Food Truck specializes in, you guessed it, food on sticks!
Today, Stick It set up shop at Soundwaves on Montrose. My GPS took me down very sketchy backstreets and alleys. I thought I was about to get carjacked but all of a sudden the streets opened up and there was the truck!
There wasn't a line because it is a pretty rainy, gray day here in Houston but no line means faster food for me! I walked up to the food truck and as soon a read the menu I had a huge dilemma- I wanted to order everything.
You see my dilemma? Skirt steak, teriyaki chicken, pork belly...how is a girl to choose? I decided on the marinated skirt steak with southwest couscous salad with chimichurri and avocado. It only took about 6 minutes for my food to be ready. That's the beauty of grilling food on a stick, it's fast!
The skirt steak went so well with the chimichurri sauce. I have a deep love for chimichurri. I remember the first time I had it I was at Churassco's with plantain chips and I could not get enough of it. I think that's part of the reason why I chose to order this. I cannot begin to tell you how good this skirt steak is. I could eat 10 sticks of this with chimichurri. Spicy, garlicky, tangy-This skirt steak had a lot going on and it was delicious.
If you order the skirt steak these are my instructions- Dip, devour, repeat. I didn't finish the chimichurri but trust me, it's in my fridge right now and I will find an excuse to eat it for dinner tonight.
The side dish for the skirt steak was a wonderful couscous salad. I've only had regular couscous so being able to try Israeli couscous was a treat!
The couscous salad had roasted corn, avocado and roasted red peppers. *SIGH* Red peppers. Readers I have a confession, I HATE bell peppers. Actually "hate" is an understatement. I absolutely detest bell peppers. I don't care if it's green, yellow, orange or red. I'd rather sit through a 24 hour Hannah Montana marathon than eat a dish with red peppers.
With that being said I am completely biased with this salad. I loved everything else about it. The sweet corn, creamy avocado and nutty couscous were perfect minus the red pepper. If you like roasted peppers than you will love this salad. I liked it despite the red peppers.
Food on sticks is not only fun but it's convenient. How great is it to be able to walk about and be eating at the same time? That my friends is multi-tasking at it's best. Stick It Food Truck has an eclectic menu that has something for everyone. Go try Stick It Food Truck and show them some food truck love.
