The rundown: Off the Grid is trying something new this weekend at its McCoppin location. Each of the five food trucks will serve a special spicy dish only to people who buy a ticket for all five. “It's sort of like a spicy tasting menu,” says Off the Grid founder Matthew Cohen.
The menu: lechon kawali on a bed of Asian-style noodles from Senor Sisig; chiles gueros rellenos con chimole de res tacos from Chaac Mool; Korean rice cake from Tomkat; the Papa-rizo from Toasty Melts; and spicy grilled pork patty banh mi from Little Green Cyclo.
