Bare Bowls Kitchen - Yucatan Bowl

Truck: Bare Bowls Kitchen
Location: University of Houston
Date: September 17, 2013

Consistency is something that can be a very hard target for a food truck. Bare Bowls manages to put out consistently great food and do it with creativity on a theme. When I'm asked what are the best food trucks in Houston, Bare Bowls is always in the top of my list.

Yucatan Bowl - $9.25 Large

Banana leaf roasted pork, braised cabbage, fresh cilantro, queso fresco, and pickled onions over yellow rice. Where do I start? The pork was incredibly tender, like butter literally. I don't think I've had meat this tender that was not failing apart. It was also sweet and flavorful without being the least bit spicy. It's really a work of art in itself. The cabbage was great with a little vinegar tanginess. The cilantro and pickled onions give it some crunch and texture. Bare Bowls always has great rice. I like how it's firm and bit chewy still. Over the last 25 years I've spent months in the Yucatan and these favors are dead on. Synopsis: to use a soccer analogy for the Yucatan Bowl - goalllllllllll!
