Food Truck Bite of the Week: Porchetta Nachos at The Whole Beast

Our weekly bite explores the city's food trucks, one at a time, highlighting our favorite mobile dishes and snacks.

The Truck: The Whole Beast

The Cuisine: Whole animal cuisine

Specialty Items: Sandwiches, smoked meats and veggies

Worth the Wait in Line? At peak dinner time, a total 13 minutes from the end of the line to food in hand.

The way we eat is largely defined by our culture and upbringing, but globally there is one thing we can all agree on: The smell of food cooked over a wood fire or smoke will trigger a reaction from the primitive and logical parts of our brain that politely says, “Fuck yes!”

Watching John Fink and his team at The Whole Beast pull a large, dark, bronzed stump of porchetta out of the large Southern Pride smoker oven at last week's Fort Mason edition of Off the Grid, the smell had my brain in overdrive like broker on the stock exchange shouting, “Buy! Buy! Buy!” at the pork belly market.
