It's all Part of my Food Truck Fantasy... It's all part of my Rock and Roll Dreams.

Fight the midterm election blues and  

Follow the link to the GOOD: FOOD blog to vote the food cart Amie and built (she built, I cooked, we were fabulous) for Chicago Art Departments annual fundraiser.
"Amie Sell and Cameo McRoberts created a mock version of La Gabacha for two reasons: to serve delicious Asian-inspired hot dogs at an art benefit, but also, to protest Chicago's "strict food truck laws and militant hot dog preparation mandates." According to Sell, "Our inspiration came from a hot dog stand in Vancouver, our love of food, art and travel.  We served up all beef hot dogs with Asian-inspired toppings [...] People keep asking me where our real stand is, too bad our city ordinances make it difficult to impossible to make La Gabacha a real truck."

Signature Dish: The Seoul Doggie (above on the right) with kim chee, pickled radish, red chili oil, and mayo. The Japadog! (above in center) with takoyaki sauce, wasabi mayo, pickled daikon, shredded nori with toasted sesame sprinkle. The Ban Mi doggie (above on the left) with thinly sliced carrots and daikon, cucumbers, cilantro, jalapeno peppers, pâté, mayo and ham.
