Re: “Weekly Open Thread: OK, Now We Have Food Trucks — How About Food Bikes?

I'd agree, $5 for a taco is a lot, relatively speaking, and is probably not worth it. I'll wait to fully judge it until I see it, though. There was a place I used to go to when I lived outside of Detroit that served tacos that were closer in size to burritos than most tacos and were stuffed to the point you had to use a fork. I'm not saying that I expect these to be quite like that but I won't rush to judge yet. The size/quality might warrant the price (though I admit, based on the other $5 tacos around, I'm skeptical).

Don't forget that Riffs also landed a brick-and-mortar.

On in unrelated note, what exactly is going on with all the chef changes at Husk?

Re: “'Modern Steakhouse' Union Common Opens in Midtown Aug. 18

Sounds interesting and definitely worth a try. But this location doesn't seem like a good fit for what they are offering. The crowd who'd eat here is not who usually eats/drinks in that corner. And there may be valet parking, but jeez - where's the valet going to put those cars? a hidden street/garage that no one already knows about?

Good grief, has no one ever seen a tamale cart ? Food trucks were everywhere in lots of places not called Nashville (apparently) long before they were trendy (or overpriced), they were simply mobile food delivery systems for people stuck in industrial office parks or in manufacturing facilities with no break services otherwise. What on earth is going on that people think food delivered on a bicycle is a new idea, never mind trendy? It's as old as, well, bicycles.

of course, the major difference is you get a dozen hot tamales from that guy for about 2 bucks, and these ridiculous trendy versions are just giant ripoffs with business plans and mission statements.

The day I get a place to sit down and eat with real utensils on real dishes and have the option to use a real rest room - all provided by the vendor - will be the first day I spend brick-and-mortar prices for a fancy sandwich handed through a window...and nowhere do I spend $5 on a taco, booth be damned... are you serious??

Also just looked at the menu. $5 for a taco? Nope.

Re: “Ken's Sushi Building Smashed; New Ken's Sushi Location Launches

i really hope kens makes it there. they do need another restaurant. kens offers a large fresh menu with things other than sushi. you can get a cheap lunch thats healthy. the other kens had a bar i think...not sure if this one does....but that area could use a safe place to get dinner and a drink. im hoping that the businesses there try kens. ive told some people about it myself.

Re: “Weekly Open Thread: OK, Now We Have Food Trucks — How About Food Bikes?

First it was brick and mortar, then came the trucks, now bikes. This seems to me to be more of an exercise in absurdity. The bigger the novelty, the lower the results. Ten thousand dollars to build out a business model with a mode of transportation that in Nashville is, at best, dangerous, and probably deadly trying to pull a trailer load of soggy tortillas. What about the weather? Rain, winter, even summer. Do you stay home or do you risk even greater potential for getting squished by Skeeter in his big rig?
