Last year, Guerrilla Street Food, arguably the city’s most famous food truck, opened a brick-and-mortar location on South Grand, where the Filipino-fusion food is just as fast, tasty, and filling, without customers having to stand out in the elements; under normal circumstances, Bill and Rachael like to try something new each time they visit a restaurant, but at Guerrilla, the couple can’t help themselves—the Flying Pig is so good, they both order it always.
They Split: Fried Lumpia
A little greasy, these humongous spring rolls are stuffed with veggies and accompanied by two dipping sauces (between which we preferred the sweet chili).
Price: $2 apiece
Rachael Ate: Flying Pig
It’s a perfect dish: rice, slow-roasted pork, fried garlic, and a runny one-hour sous vide egg are adorned with three sauces—hoisin, sriracha, and calamansi (Guerrilla’s secret weapon)—then garnished with scallions and sesame seeds.
Bill Ate: Bigger Flying Pig
All the same great flavors; an even fuller belly.
