Poi Dog, Pork Belly and Avance Sous Chef, Trevor Budny, At The Garage This Weekend


Now that East Passyunk’s The Garage has approval worked out for their indoor food cart (which they tested out last week with a slider menu from Tavern’s chef Mackenzie Hilton), they’re starting to build a fun calendar to feature some of Philly’s food truck favorites and some wild cards as well.

Tonight, Poi Dog Philly takes over with an ambitious multi-item menu that includes kare kare (Filipino peanut and beef stew), kalua pork tacos (smoky Hawaiian-style pulled pork with pineapple habanero salsa), chicken adobo tamales and, for dessert, kona coffee mochi and pineapple bibingka with guava caramel.

Tomorrow, The Whirly Pig is serving up pork belly sandwiches, and on Sunday afternoon Trevor Budny, sous chef at Justin Bogle’s Avance, is serving up fine-dining caliber Kegs and Eggs–heirloom Carolina gold rice grits cooked in bacon dashi, with local double-smoked bacon and poached eggs.

The calendar continues…
