The Ginger Pig, the Asian street food truck, departs from the Rayback Collective food truck park and into a new home starting April 3.
The food truck, which parked at Rayback starting the second day it opened, moves to Isabelle Farm, a CSA, in Lafayette. The Ginger Pig plans to dish out its Asian-inspired fare from Wednesday through Friday from 4 to 8 p.m and on Saturday from noon to 8 p.m.
“I had a CSA share through Isabelle Farm for many years before opening the truck. It was there that I was inspired to build on the cooking skills I learned in China, and use a larger variety of fresh ingredients. Isabelle Farm grows 80 different varieties of organic vegetables, many of which we’ve incorporated into our menu in the past,” says The Ginger Pig owner Natascha Hess in a press statement.
Currently, the menu includes vegan and gluten-free dishes such as wonton chips with a sweet chili garlic sauce, Chinese smashed cucumber salad, and Thai red curry rice balls, egg rolls. A Chinese barbecued pork char siu, sesame ginger braised pork banh mi rice bowl, and Chinese chicken with a Sichuan peppercorn rub round out the menu.
At the farm, Hess plans to add Lambda Lambda Lambda with Xinjiang cumin lamb, Buddha balls made from jackfruit, Japanese karaage, honey Sriracha Brussels sprouts, and La Zi cauliflower with Chinese nine spice.
