That Thai Curry Simple Food Truck is No Longer Happening
But one from Plum Bistro is in the works.
About a month ago CHS posted a message from Mark Pinkaow, owner of Thai Curry Simple, saying he was scouting locations in the neighborhood for a forthcoming food truck—perhaps some of the more awesome news we have heard of late.
Unfortunately, Pinkaow has scrapped those plans. "I am unable to maneuver two storefronts and a food truck at the same time," Pinkaow says, adding he's encountered many obstacles—securing parking spots both day and night, locating a nearby bathroom—in his months of research.
"There was time that I believed a food truck was the best way to introduce a Thai street menu, but it's not a good time. So sad to let it go."
On the upside, another popular restaurateur has put the wheels in motion for a food truck. Makini Howell, proprietor of Plum Bistro and several other veggie-rific eateries, hopes to launch the city's first vegan truck, and is using Kickstarter to do so.
