Bean less chili?
Bean less chili?
If you're looking for festival food ideas, make every dish eatable while standing....so nothing requiring knife and fork action. Meat should be bite size/pre sliced/hand held.
I don't really care if you have desserts or not. By the time I stuffed my face with a real meal, I don't have room for dessert.
Just about any kind of meat, beside or on top of a big ass salad, or a pile of roasted veggies, would make me happy. Pulled pork, chicken kabobs, burger patty, sliced steak, salmon filet, prawns & scallops, bratwurst, poached eggs, bacon...
...with a choice of sides - roasted sweet potatoes, roasted cauliflower, fruit salad, coleslaw. You could even offer non-primal sides like potato salad, roasted potatoes, fried rice...so non-primal buddies can order off the same truck.
And don't forget the seafood. Nothing more Primal than a freshly shucked oyster IMO.
Best date dessert ever.
He who dares not offend cannot be honest.
Owen, how about calling your food truck something like Paleo or Primal Planet foods and then each dish could have a meat and veg combo with a different ethnic emphasis. For example the Asian plate could have Thai grilled chicken with a daikon, cucumber, mint slaw, Greek Plate: lamb kabobs with Greek Salad, Mexican Plate: Carne Asada with an orange, jicama, avocado and cilantro salad etc. That way there's always something different for the customers to try.
Primal Tiramisu. I LOVE Tiramisu... One of my most favorite desserts, ever. Also, a Primal lasagna and a Primal eggplant parmesan.
I've always been a sucker for build-your-own plate kinda thing. Maybe you could just have menu that had categories like meat & seafood (beef, chicken, salmon, meat of the day, etc.), veg & starches (spinach, broccoli, red peppers, sweet potato, etc.) , sauces & toppings(gravy, marinara sauce, hollandaise, tzatziki,paleo mayo, etc), and then have a choice between types of oils/fats (coconut, olive, butter, confit, lard) and then fry or grill them up with flavor profiles (mexican spices, indian spices, greek spices, etc.) Of course, this may lead to a lot of errors in the ordering process and may give customers tooooo many options, but that's what I like. Maybe even a Paleo version of bd's Mongolian Grill, if you've ever heard of that place.
As for my 3 course dream Primal plates.... Appetizer would be either a shrimp cocktail, or a fruit, meat & cheese plate with some nuts maybe.
Main course would be either a choose-your-own-toppings BAS, or a big grass-fed steak with cauliflower mash and lots of veggies.
Dessert would be a paleo brownie topped with banana "ice cream" (frozen bananas blended up with dates)
What would you call your restaurant?
