Previewing gastroPOD Miami

Gastropod-7

With all the talk of food trucks leading up to this weekend, it was hard to resist going to one. D, SteveBM and I grabbed a bite at gastroPOD Miami, chef Jeremiah Bullfrog’s food truck, yesterday. The shiny airstream was set up in front of the Miami Independent Thinkers fair in Wynwood for Art Basel weekend. Following is a look at what we ordered, which amounted to everything on the menu but the vegan curry.

Old Dirt Dawg

Old Dirt Dawg - short rib hot dog, stupid slaw and mustard

What can I say? It’s good to have something like this in Miami. While I didn’t taste everything, the pork in my Sandy was tender and had a nice rich, smoky flavor. Maybe some slaw would have been a good addition to create some contrast to the smoky flavors of the pork. The brisket in the Sloppy Jose was good. Dressed simply with pickles on top, it was uncomplicated but satisfying. I didn’t try the burger or the hot dog but I’m looking forward to tasting more once gastroPOD rolls out again.
