Dos Equis – The Most Interesting Food Truck

Dos Equis‘ latest and greatest idea has arrived in the form of… Filipino food?? I got the heads up from a friend of mine that HapaSF had created the menu for this particular food truck. The Most Interesting Food Truck is making its rounds across San Francisco, offering free and interesting food to any old schmuck that’s willing to try their ‘interesting’ food. 

I was a little nervous about their menu. They had Duck Egg Itlog na Maalat, Chicken Feet Adidas Atchara and Pig’s Head Sisig. I decided to only get 2 items off their menu, the chicken foot, and the Pig’s Head Sisig. There were a couple of people waiting in line to order, but I certainly didn’t mind taking a couple of minutes to chat with the traditional Filipino dancers.

 

 

It was only few minutes before I was gifted with the Sisig and my lucky chicken’s foot. I wasn’t entirely sure how to tackle the chicken foot, so I asked one of the kind ladies who was working there.

She instructed me to start from the top of the foot and then to spit out all the little bits of bone. The first bite I took, I got a ton of tiny bones and very little meat. It was quite a bit of work to actually get at any of the meat. The small amount that I could get to was good though.

I’m not sure what I was expecting, nevertheless it took a little getting used to.  In addition to being one of the most difficult bites I’ve found thus far in San Francisco, there was a pigeon that kept following me around. He was obviously planning out some sort of revenge. He must’ve thought that I was gnawing on one of his brethren. All in all, it was good, but I don’t know when the next time I’ll eat a chicken’s foot might be. Also, not so surprisingly, it did in fact taste like chicken.

I didn’t get to try the duck egg, because it looked pretty mundane and I didn’t want to seem like a pig by taking all three dishes! Now if they had some Balut, I definitely would’ve tried it!

 

The Pig’s Head Sisig seemed like something you might find at a taqueria. It was served with rice and lime, which was a nice touch, but it made me want to wrap it in a burrito. I really enjoyed the Pig’s Head and I’m not even entirely sure which part of the head it was!

If the Dos Equis food truck is ever in your town, you should stop by for a minute or two. Even if The Most Interesting Man isn’t there, you’ll be sure to find some most interesting eats!

    Wow, that chicken foot looks delicious! (Did you notice that the pigeon in the photo is missing a leg?)

    I don’t usually examine pigeons closely while I’m eating, but I’m pretty sure I would have noticed if it had been missing a leg!

    This looks badass. We need a Filipino food truck in NYC. Wouldn’t be the first food truck idea to be imported from California; I believe kimchi/Korean-inspired tacos are originally a Cali thing and now they’re all the rage here.
