Generally wintertime is not the time of the year that you would think of “cones.” Gus Straub is trying to change all that with his Awesome Cone food truck. The concept is simple, instead of filling a waffle cone with cold frigid ice cream, Gus fills them with steamy hot food!
The cone stuffings vary in style but who could argue with a waffle cone filled with pulled pork and cole slaw? Not a traditional snack, but certainly a delicious one! You won’t want to miss a single bite of the cone after is absorbs some bbq sauce!
The slightly sweet and warm waffle cone is also available filled with chicken and dumplings, wagon wheel pasta in a rich, creamy vegan tomato sauce (the “O, Pioneed Cone!), sauteed button mushrooms and garlic in a rosemary marsala glaze (the “Fungus Cone!” of course), and cajun style (vegan) red beans and brown rice.
Awesome Cone can be found in the D-Street Noshery which is a pod of food trucks located at 3221 SE Division St in Portland. Other food trucks in the D-Street Noshery include Fuego de Lotus, The Pie Spot, Captured by Porches Brewing, Flying Fish Co., Oregon Soup Works, Koi Fusion, Slice Brick Oven Pizza, and Herb’s Mac and Cheese.
Enjoy Awesome Cone, just don’t expect one of those Drumstick Ice Cream Cones you enjoyed as a kid!
