Healthy Budget Beauty – Stumbled across the Clover Food Lab truck today while investigating the South Station Farmer's Market. What is this mysterious long line? And look at that menu - $5 for a sandwich? $3 for a salad? All vegetarian?
Curiosity piqued, I stood in line for a BBQ seitan sandwich, which was tasty and filling. I'm guessing that t the chickpea sandwiches are the most popular. They seemed to be super-crispy and Mediterranean-inspired (dressed with pink pickled onions and a...yogurt sauce?).
More reasons to support Clover Food Lab: according to their website, all ingredients are just-cut, local, and (soon) organic. Bottom line: Would reactivate Twitter account just to stalk this truck.
Citysearch Editorial Review – Though it may sit next to the typical lunch trucks shilling decent but unremarkable burritos, lo mein and falafel, Clover Food Lab sets the bar skyhigh for mobile restaurants with a market-driven, wallet-friendly, geek-chic menu. Parked near Kendall Square outside the MIT medical building, the lunch-counter-on-wheels (founded by an MIT alum) doles local, fresh, organic ingredients in the form of tasty, made-to-order day snacks like eggy popovers, seitan sandwiches, brothy mushroom soup, rosemary-laden fries, eggplant salad and agave-sweetened iced tea. Menu updates on Twitter, the ability to email in an order, and a streamlined iPhone-centric order-processing system set this street food experience apart.
