It's Friday, so that can only mean one thing: It's time for Food Truck Friday again! Welcome back to our fellow blogger Katie from Discovering the Southern Part of Heaven as she tells us about another great food truck in the area-Chirba Chirba Dumpling.
Thanks to Katie we have also learned where to find Chirba Chirba this weekend. They will be at the first area Food Truck Mash Up this Saturday night at Motorco in Durham-Yum! So, if you can get someone to watch the kiddos, get your tickets and head on down!
I love that the Triangle has such an active Food Truck Scene! I thought it was high time that I start telling you more about them. I checked out the Eno River Farmers' Market on Saturday, and got to try out Chirba Chirba at the same time! Here's what I really liked:
1) The food. I tried the porkedame, their specialty. I have to admit, I'm not really a dumpling person, so I wasn't sure about trying them, but I'm glad I did. They were delicious, steamed pockets of pork and edamame. I would have liked more than 1 dumpling (there are 5 in a serving), but my husband really liked them, and, when it comes to food, he's faster on the draw than I am.
They also have Juicy Buns, Veggie-lings, edamame and sweet sausage. For more details on these menu items, clickhere.
2) The cost. $5.50 for five good sized dumplings. enough said.
3) They are mobile. Intuitive, I know. But really, what isn't to like about a place that you can catch one day at the farmers' market, and another at 3 Cups?
4) It's fun to get such great food from a truck! (I can't wait to try more!)
Want to know where to find them? Check out their website here or follow them on twitter (@chirbachirba).
Oh, and if you are going with a hungry husband, get more than five dumplings. Those things are good!
