being from austin, we have a lot – and the culture there is very different. but chicago’s trying!!
i had the chance to meet amy, who owns the Duck N Roll truck here in chicago. banh mi? duck? YES PLEASE!! i couldn’t wait – they park outside my office every thursday.

i skipped my way up to the bright green truck after staring at the website all morning unable to decide what i wanted. DECISIONS?!
banh mi? GUMBO? i die.
thankfully, amy chose for me. and threw in some samples!
the banh mi was good! lots of meat and i liked her twist on the sandwich. food isn’t cooked on the trucks here, but it wasn’t too bad not toasted and made ready to order.
gumbo was amazing – it was a chilly day, and the duck and sausage complemented each other well. there was a good amount of heat – i didn’t have to add hot sauce! good pick if she has this on the menu as a special.
oh yes the desserts – go for it. just do it. these donuts were so good; the azuki was a surprising touch, such a comfort taste for my little asian taste buds.i was reluctant to share…but was so full from the gumbo AND sandwich!
