The Purple Food Truck Goes Permanent
If you made it to the New Orelans Po-Boy Preservation Festival this weekend, you already know about popular upscale restaurants like Drago's and Grand Isle. But what you didn't get to sample was one of the hottest sandwiches in town: The $7 pulled pork po-boy from Que Crawl food truck.
The purple Que Crawl truck has been anchored outside Tipitina nightclub for the better part of the last two years, and by now most locals know that it serves up some of the city's best (and most affordable) BBQ, along with classic Cajun and Southern sides like cheese grits sticks and crawfish boudin balls, making for some serious alcohol-soaking late-night eats.
And next week, Que Crawl makes a rare move for a food truck: It's going permanent, opening an honest-to-goodness restaurant called Boucherie. The restaurant will be open just for lunch starting next Tuesday, and starts dinner service the following week.
