Okay, this is going to be such a quick one that usually I’d go back for a second visit to pad it out, but it’s a means to an end so bear with me.  Tonight from 5-8 pm is the second weekly installment of Food Trucks in the Park at Ann Morrison Park downtown, courtesy […]

The sandwich is a wonderful thing.  From the majestic simplicity of the grilled cheese or the PB&J to the iconic BLT, torta and Cubano, cramming stuff between two hunks of starch results in everything from comfort food to art form.  The Valley certainly has been seeing a boom in sandwich joints lately, and while many […]

Yesterday, I wrote a review of a new truck on the local street food scene called Mad Mac (spoiler alert: I wasn’t a fan).  What I didn’t mention is that the same owners brought two trucks to Boise when they moved here.  That’s right, the mac and cheese truck has a sister truck that I […]

Ah Spring, when the food trucks are in bloom.  The Southern Idaho Food Truck Feast is still going strong on Wednesdays and Thursdays.  The Idaho Food Truck Coalition is becoming a great source to keep track of which trucks are where on any given day, as well as arranging for a gathering of vendors at […]

So, buffets.  A lot of snobby foodie types don’t dig them.  Hell, a lot of people in general don’t dig them.  I’m not saying it’s completely unjustified.  One trip to Golden Corral could poison you against the idea forever.  Still, I’m sure there’s a few truly good ones out there (I’ve heard good things about […]

So a couple of posts ago I mentioned that two Meridian restaurants made the Statesman’s list of the best new restaurants of 2015.  Last week, I visited the other one.Grant’s Neighborhood Grill has been open since June, but their website is still just a placeholder so I’ll include a link to their Facebook page.  They […]

There is probably no more widely and diversely represented ethnic cuisine in the Treasure Valley than Mexican.  In many eateries, it’s as Americanized as Chinese food is.  Others seem to have a mix of traditional and non-traditional items.  Honestly, when I want Mexican nine times out of ten I’ll hit a taco truck because it’s […]
