Good news for the Jews of Philly — Max and David’s, a kosher restaurant in the Philadelphia area, will soon be opening a food truck!
Food trucks have cropped up all over the country, having strong presences in Los Angeles, Austin, New York and DC and made even more popular by the Food Network’s Great Food Truck Race. But a kosher food truck is hard to find…
And what I wondered was, does Philly need a kosher food truck? As Joshua Katz, President of Max and David’s, explained recently, “it’s not just about serving lunch on the street – it’s also about serving kosher food at festivals, stadiums, special events, parties. etc. Having a food truck gives us so much flexibility to accommodate our current customers…and start reaching new customers that may not know what we have to offer.”
Their food truck menu isn’t up yet, but they say the truck will be serving upscale burgers, brisket, fries, and dairy-free gelato and shakes.
Max and David’s Food Truck is planning to launch in early Spring once they get their licensing – hopefully in time for a post-Passover burger and fries I suppose!? For menu updates and their daily location you can follow them on Twitter @MDFoodTruck, on their Tumblr blog or on Facebook.
