Red Truck: A Great Little Lunch Spot

The Red Truck started out as Truckee’s favorite food truck.  It used to be quite the game to follow the @RedTruckeTahoe twitter feed in order to find out where you could get those delicious bite-size tacos, naan dogs, or the chicken takka masala bowl.  When one happened upon that bright red truck or saw it while cruisin’ through town, you couldn’t help but stop.

Now, it’s a different story for our favorite eating spot.  You can count on it every week at Truckee Thursdays in downtown Truckee in the summer, and year-round Monday through Friday at the Truckee Airport.  If you’re really lucky, you might run into them at a wedding or a private event, a great choice for catering any occasion!

My favorite has always been the bowl with falafel or chicken tikka masala, but you really can’t go wrong with anything on the menu.  The flavors are based around traditional Indian style cuisine and the ingredients are organic, sustainable, and fresh.  Chef Larry really does know how to make your taste buds sing.

When you go,  don’t forget to add the side sauces to your dish.  The green one is my favorite and the least spicy, the red one is yummy and the yellow one will knock your socks off (go for it if you like it HOT!).  For the sweet tooth in the family,  you have to add a cookie for dessert, they are baked in-house and are amazing!

See you at the Red Truck!
