Little Mushroom Co, by Obelix

Little Mushroom Co is the first of a series of food trucks posts I'm excited to present.  Essentially this food truck offers two items:  mushroom burgers and Mexican corn.  One could get a meal deal ($12) which encompasses both.

Apparently Little Mushroom Co are renowned for their Mexican Mushroom burger which I have been told packs a medium intensity heat and is their most popular item.  As one to buck the status quo, I tried their Greek Mushroom burger which interestingly had a honey dill mayo laced throughout and rocket and grilled haloumi sandwiched within a ciabatta bun.  It sounded intriguing and it tasted mighty fine albeit a little messy to eat as the mushrooms are moisture drenched sponges.  I just wished it was more substantial.  The mushrooms themselves were portobellos.  Whilst I was expecting a whole grilled portobello, it was in reality a few cut up pieces.  The haloumi was a little too thinly sliced for me to appreciate what would have been a salty intensity to contrast with the sweet honey mayo.

The Mex corn was a good nibble.  It was slightly piquant with a cheesy sprinkle on top.

The meal deal is bound to leave you licking your fingers down to your wrists and picking corn kernels out from between your teeth.  It's messy but that's part of street food fun, isn't it?  Eat it with your butt parked on a curb side.

Overall

The Little Mushroom Co is a fair to good street eats.  At last, here is a food truck which caters for the vegetarians among us.  They were able to accommodate for vegans also.  If only the mushrooms themselves were a bit more substantial but apart from that, great strong flavours.
