Forthcoming Food Truck Where Ya At Furthers Beignet Bombardment

And other must-trys when the New Orleans kitchen-on-wheels debuts.

Beignets, they’re everywhere.

When Matthew Lewis takes to the streets with his new food truck Where Ya At, he’s bringing the friedsugardoughy dollops with him. He’ll join the slew of Seattle restaurants hot for the traditional French dessert.

Lewis says his beignets pair quite nicely with coffee and are one of the standouts on his New Orleans–inspired menu. His other favorites? An oyster po’boy called the “Peace Maker". In it: fried oysters with bacon, cheddar cheese, Mama Lil’s bread and butter pickles, and lemon aioli.

And the muffuletta, which according to Lewis’s website rivals that of the Central Grocery in New Orleans. The mile-high pie of a sandwich is stacked with ham, mortadella, soppressata, coppa, provolone, swiss, and a house made olive salad. Anyone familiar with Nola knows Central Grocery is the spot to sate a muffuletta craving. Big claims, Lewis, but given your shiny culinary background (Restaurant Zoe, Canlis, Toulouse Petit), we’ll go with it.
