TGIFTF, Thank God it's Food Truck Friday! And even better there is a new truck for me to try at the Houston Food Park. Let me introduce you to Foreign Policy Truck. Their concept is you choose a vehicle, burger, fries, or taco, and then a country, Greece, Korea, or Mexico. Their prices are reasonable too, $7, $6, $2.
A burger made with gyro meat, tomatoes, onions, and tzatziki sauce. A nice big portion, and the gyro meat is sliced paper thin and heated to a little crust on the grill. The meat comes out super tender and nicely seasoned. Why doesn't tzatziki come on more things? Its a cool, yogurt based sauce with cucumbers, garlic, salt and olive oil. It works so well on this I bet it would work well on many sandwiches. I'm not much of a lettuce aficionado so skipping that on my burger suits me fine, nice fresh tomato and onions work well for me. Synopsis: when you're tired of rolling your gyro in flat bread change your foreign policy and get you a Greece burger!
These just naturally go with the Greece burger, fries topped with tzatziki, lettuce, tomato, onion, and feta cheese.The fries have a little crust on them and are seasoned. They are done nice and crisp so they stay crispy a good long time. I got mine with a little melted queso on the bottom. I immediately thought of a gyro at Niko Niko's when I took my first bite. This is just really well executed. The veggies make it all seem so light, and the tzatziki and queso aren't over done so they flavor the fries and the fries don't swim in it. If you like these Greek flavors, you're going to like this. Synopsis: The veggies make it seem like fries are good for you!
