The YetiThe Truck: BigFoodThe Fare: Mythological fusion (with a distinct Indian lean).The Stop: My first encounter of the BigFood kind was outside of Havana in the Pike/Pine corridor late on a Thursday night for the nightclub’s hipsterific Sophisticated Mama soul dance night. The weather was dreary and the foot traffic slow, but I was excited to eat a late-night snack that wasn’t a cream-cheese hot dog. Without the appetite or cash for their standard meal options–$9 flatbread sandwiches with a superfusion twist–I opted instead for the “Littlefood” option: cheesy flatbread with your choice of meat, carrot sticks, and a juice box. The novelty of a tiny apple juice and carrot sticks aside, my chicken-cheesy flatbread was like a doughy, grilled flatbread quesadilla, a warm and sizable snack for a half-drunk stomach. While I’d be perfectly content recommending the LittleFood meal, I returned to BigFood parked outside of Starbucks SODO on a Tuesday to attempt their offerings for a larger and more sophisticated palate. Although only a few months old, BigFood has slid itself into the familiar rotation of Seattle’s sleekest kitchens on wheels, and one-ups most other trucks with their snazzy flat-screen menu. (They take credit cards, too.) They have four featured sandwiches that spin barbecue and traditional Indian fare with more tropical flavors under fanciful, Pacific-Northwesty names. The Sequoia offers pulled chicken with tomato chutney and cilantro-sriracha sauce; the Sasquatch is a spicy pulled pork with a mango chutney and slaw; and the vegetarian Redwood is paneer cheese with pineapple and red onion. Upon recommendation of the man in the window, I went with the Yeti, a red-wine braised beef with curried fruit and slaw, and also got an order of their chicken wings ($6) drizzled with a coriander cream. The BigFood WingsThe sandwich was indeed Big: on a large slab of naan-like bread was served a mound of soft, shredded, and tender beef with an understated seasoning that cradled the curry and coriander garnishes on top. The raisins as fruit was a sweet touch, but I did find myself lusting after the mango chutney atop spicy pulled pork for a more adventurous experience. For its relative subtlety, the Yeti was a solid sandwich and almost too much food for my appetite, particularly when accompanied with perhaps the largest chicken wings I have ever been served. While they were a tad too salted, the wings were positively gargantuan–definitely BIG–and the generous amount of coriander mayo made for an unusual and delicious appetizer meant to share. Next time, I’ll want to check out the Redwood to see what a pineapple-and-cheese sandwich could possibly amount to, and also sample their side salad: pineapple, cucumber, jicama, and mango with tamarind lime vinaigrette. Or maybe I’ll just go back to what I have been craving: the cheesy chicken flatbread.
