Last month, I raved about the culinary genius behind a new food truck that was coming to Nashville called Riffs Truck. I was first introduced to Carlos and B.J.’s fine street fare on the Kenny’s Farmhouse Cheese tour, and I couldn’t wait for Riffs’ grand opening. Well, they opened their business with a bang at the Richland Avenue Home and Garden Tour last weekend. And guess who was there to enjoy the menu! (Every BIT of the menu! Yes, I had to have the $10 Try It All Special. I didn’t want to miss a single thing.)
B.J. was happy to oblige!
Let me take you on a tour of Riff Truck’s amazing offerings.
Honey Ginger Green Tea
Simple, delicious, and refreshing, made with three basic ingredients: honey, crystalized ginger, and green tea.
Blackened Tilapia Fish Taco with Cilantro Slaw and Sweet Corn Relish
Just look at that plate of color!
Now multiply it by about 20 and you have an idea of the incredible flavor. So it’s not an exact mathematical formula, but you get the idea. This food is a flavor explosion for your tastebuds!
The tilapia taco was the first to go, and I was so impressed that they offered a corn tortilla option for the gluten-free customers.
Jerk Chicken Tenderloin with Red Beans and Rice and Papaya Salsa
I love that nothing else on the menu had to be modified to be gluten free. It’s just wholesome, nutritious food that’s packed with flavor and naturally gluten-free.
(And if you ever see anything on the menu made with Carlos’ jerk seasoning, you MUST try it.)
Riffs Truck even had Guava Panna Cotta for dessert.
Are you ready to get out there and see what the buzz is all about! Riffs Truck has been making stops at Musician’s Corner in Centennial Park and the Woodbine Farmer’s Market every Saturday, but be sure to follow them on Twitter for updates.
