You’ll just have to be patient and wait in the line that’s forming outside of this bright red food truck, because it’s gonna be worth it. Comfort Co. Tasty Eats is applying new school cooking techniques to old school comfort food, along with a dash of passion. Focusing on New Americana Southern cuisine, this truck usually serves up five items, including a rotating weekly feature.
Their Cola-braised pulled pork can be ordered as a sandwich or as loaded fries. The loaded fries are a delicious mess of hand-cut fries tossed in BBQ sauce, pulled pork and shredded cheese. The housemade BBQ sauce is a perfect balance of sweetness and acidity with Cola, orange juice, ketchup and ten spices. New to the menu is the HOT chicken, which is like no other fried chicken sandwich you’ve ever had. A cajun-marinated Cornish hen is cooked by sous vide and then fried and topped with housemade hot sauce and cucumber kimchi. Even condiments get extra special attention; their whole grain mustard is made with Lagunitas IPA and the mayo is a whole ‘nother story. Their smoky mayonnaise is infused with actual smoke, rather than liquid smoke or smoked spices. No Southern menu would be complete without mac and cheese, and Comfort’s version is a heaping creamy, cajun-spiced serving topped with battered and fried onion strings.
Those smart enough to wake up early to attend this year’s Balloonfest were treated to banana pancakes with strawberry mint syrup, bacon and egg sandwiches and pulled pork hash.
