Food truck movement in Wallingford

February 23rd, 2012 · No Comments

Street food finally became a reality for Wallingford last fall, as a pod of food trucks took over the Uptown Espresso parking lot at 45th and Corliss. A diverse group of food trucks descended, offering everything from pulled pork to curry and tortas.

While the winter months meant a lull for the food trucks in Wallingford, Monty Herrin from Uptown Espresso says they should be reappearing as the weather gets better. Herrin says that nowadays, the two trucks that fill the lot most regularly are A Lunch in Hand and Skillet. According to the Wallingford Eats site, A Lunch in Hand typically shows up on Thursdays, offering “slow-cooked classics.” Skillet graces the lot on Sundays from 12 to 3 for their, “chicken and waffle Sundays.”

Students from the University of Washington entrepreneurial journalism class taught by our partners, The Common Language Project, showed how the arrival of food trucks have made an impact on Wallingford in their piece titled, “Food truck movement rolls into Seattle.” Click here to read more.
