New Food Truck: Cruisin' Crawfish

It was inevitable: Someone has launched a Vietnamese/Cajun crawfish business out of a food truck. Cruisin' Crawfish merges the previously divergent trends of the crawfish restaurant and the luxe lonchera movement. Please correct me if I am mistaken in saying this is the first of its kind in our area, as I would not be surprised if someone had thought of it sooner.

If you discount for a moment that its featured food would be almost impossible to eat with one hand while standing, it's a business plan that's almost a no-brainer. The customers who would stand in two-hour-long lines at the Boiling Crab are the same customers who have stood in two-hour-long lines at Kogi.

The menu thankfully focuses on just the butter-and-hot-sauce-soaked shrimp and crawfish variants of the dish--it does not have crab. Rounding out its offerings are Cajun fries, fried shrimp, gumbo and fried wings.

Interested? See where the truck will be next by visiting its Facebook, Twitter or website; you probably shouldn't wear your good clothes.
