Nammi and Dos Equis Partnering For Cultural Experience

Starting September 12 and going for 10 days, Nammi will be partnering with Dos Equis for the Dos Equis Mobile Academy.  Billed as " a culinary experience featuring adventurous cuisines from a variety of regions and cultures for fans that are craving something new, or are just bored from eating endless variations of the chicken sandwich. Each Mobile Academy truck will have an individualized menu with a corresponding cultural ritual that truly brings the experience to life. Culinary ambassadors will be present at every Mobile Academy stop to provide extensive background on the culture and regions represented."

Nammi will be serving lunch and dinner, across Dallas, generally operating on its standard schedule. The difference will be the menu, which will feature       
  • Jelly Fish – Marinated with satay chili oil topped with tangy cucumber salad.
  • Crispy Spiced Quail – Served with a black bean sauce.
  • Soy Silkworm – Seared sesame with green tea sesame sauce.
Each of these items will be free to willing diners. At each service, there will also be Vietnamese cultural performers bringing the food and experience to life.

The confirmed schedule for the first week of the tour is:

9/12  6:00 p.m. - 9:00 p.m. Run On Store, 11811 Preston Road
9/13  11 a.m. - 2:30 p.m.    Thanksgiving Square, 1627 Pacific Ave
9/14  11 a.m. - 2:30 p.m.    Dallas Arts District
9/15  12 noon - 3:30 p.m.   Deep Ellum Outdoor Market
9/16  12 noon - 3:30 p.m.   Dallas Arts District
9/18  6:00 p.m. - 9:00 p.m. The Village, 8303 Southwestern Boulevard
9/19  6:00 p.m. - 9:00 p.m. Walgreeens, 5201 Beltline, Dallas

I am excited to see how this Mobile Academy works and try the cuisine. I've made no secret that Nammi's bahn mi is my favorite of any of the DFW food trucks, so I am putting my faith and taste buds in Teena's capable hands. I'll have much more to say about the experience later in the week. 

You can get the Nammi schedule on their website, Facebook or Twitter or follow Dos Equis on Twitter for many more details.

Hot Potato, Hot Potato

Comfort food...there's just some days when you want old-fashioned food, like Mom use to make. Then there are the days when you want to spice things up and try something different.  At Potato Potahto, you can do both, generally in the same meal.

Want a comforting, old-fashioned baked potato with butter, cheese, sour cream and chives? Try this.

Want some protein with those carbs? I highly recommend the potato with smoked brisket, cheese and picked red onions. This brisket some the best I have ever had. It truly melts in your mouth.

I promise, there is melt in your mouth brisket under all that cheese

In the mood for watching a football game but don't want the mess of Buffalo wings? Try the buffalo chicken baked potato.  Big hunks of white meat chicken, with tangy, but not too spicy hot sauce and loads of blue cheese.

All of my meals from this truck have fallen on the potato side (white russet) but the other side of the business is the potahto, sweet potato side.  I have talked to other customers who rave about the tasty sweetness of those potatoes.  For those who are eating on the lower calorie side of lunch or dinner, Potato Potaho also offers a 200 calorie option, with salsa, onions and chives. You can also build your own, with many other options including Greek yogurt, tomatoes, jalapenos, and various cheeses. 

Potato Potahto is generally in and around the Dallas area,  I visit them when they are in Irving.This is a great truck to find when you need that comfort food or you want to jazz up your day.  As they say on the end of their Facebook and Twitter messages, "you gotta eat".  It is true that you do and I recommend that you eat with Potato Potahto.
