Although it might seem like breaking a rule of nature to visit an outdoor eatery when temperatures are beginning to dip below the 40-degree mark, I decided to brave the bracing winds and stop by the Street Kitchen food truck.
The chalk-drawn menu didn't disappoint, filled to the brim with all kinds of comfort foods, from hot chicken sandwiches to lamb kafta, I knew I wanted a big helping. So, I ordered off of the Big Plates section.
I ordered it to-go, and the Northern Soul ($14) lived up to all my expectations and more. It was a heaping helping of cider braised pork that melted in my mouth with each bite, complemented by an amazing apple cherry jam. If I could have had it my way, I would've doubled the jam, but that's just because I'm greedy. The mirepoix paired perfectly with the pork also, and the side of grits helped to add body to the meal.
If Street Kitchen is still open during a polar apocalypse, you'll probably see me standing first in line.
