Chicago’s Gaztro-Wagon is run by Matt Maroni with a very simple philosophy, fresh food fast. The Wagon’s fresh seasonal fare has hit the streets running in Chicago and becoming extremely popular as a food truck as well as a traditional “store” location.
The Gaztro-Wagon’s claim to fame is the Naan-Wich, a savory or sweet street food stuffed in Naan bread (a flatbread) built from quality ingredients that are handled with pride and care.
Sound simple? Maybe, but the Gaztro-Wagon has pushed the Naan-Wich over the edge of traditional street food into true gourmet food. Consider the ingredients in this Naan-Wich: wild boar belly, dates, bleu cheese, romesco sauce and onions wrapped in a soft warm naan bread.
Other favorite Naan-Wiches include the braised lamb Naan-Wich with queso panela,apricots, candied walnuts and padron peppers. The Warm Lobster Club includes pancetta, tomato onion salad and arugula pesto.
If your tastes are a little more subdued you should certainly try the Fidel “gaztro” Naan-Wich with pork shoulder, ham, sliced pickle mustard and manchego or the Corn Beef Reuben Naan-Wich with provolone, warm cabbage slaw and a tomato remoulade.
The menu changes often, and not all items are available from the truck at all times. I am looking forward to trying the Naan-Wich which combines braised lamb, queso panela, apricots, candies walnuts and padron peppers!
As a side dish be sure to try the plantain chips as they are the perfect addition to all of the flavors combined in Gaztro-Wagon’s Naan-Wiches.
Chicago has not been a food truck mecca (partially due to Chicago’s intense food preperation regulations), part of Gaztro-Wagon’s mission is help grow the Chicago food truck scene and take it to the highest level.
Hat’s off to Gaztro-Wagon for creating a creative and unique food truck menu that delivers in taste, quality and seasonal ingredients. When in Chicago forget about deep-dish pizza and Italian Beef sandwiches and instead treat yourself to a real treat – Gaztro-Wagon.
