Two months ago Kamala Saxton and Roz Edison decided to chuck it all and build a dream, and that dream is a food truck, Marination Mobile. Not your average food truck, the pair will serve foods as diverse as tacos, miso ginger chicken, kimchi fried rice with fried egg on top, Kalua pig sliders, and SPAM sliders. I have had the honor of eating Kamala's authentic Hawaiian kalua pork, and I am psyched, nay, bursting with happiness. Kamala said, "We want to keep things fun. I love the idea people being able to get a bowl with a scoop of rice, a scoop of macaroni salad, and a pile of guava ribs. We'll definitely have options for vegetarians as well, but this is a chance to share our idea of comfort food."
After little luck finding a builder for their truck in Seattle, they flew down to LA and had theirs built from scratch. "Even the builder said he'd never seen a configuration like ours before," said Kamala. She adds, "Roz is the operations side, and she gave us a great flow and big windows so that, unlike other trucks, you'll be able to see everything going on inside. That was important to us."
The truck just passed the all important permit inspection for L&I. Permits willing, look for the truck the end of May, Thursday through Saturday on Capitol Hill (author note: yesssss!), and a day in Fremont and SODO. They also hope to get a permit for one of the large parks, possibly Magnuson. In the meantime, visit @curb_cuisine on Twitter for teasers and progress reports.
