Drewski's Food Truck and Ettore's European Bakery

B came to my house today, and since we have been on a food truck hunt/binge, we sought out the Drewski Hot Rod Kitchen Truck by my house. They serve sandwiches, and some delicious tater tots! It was raining and cold, so we ate in my car. As usual, we both ordered different items, and then shared. Here's a look at the truck...

I ordered the Mustang: Korean Braised Beef, House-Made Kimchi, Shredded Daikon, Sriracha-Wasabi Aioli, Aged Harvarti and Swiss Grilled on French. I also ordered their famous tots, with rosemary and garlic. Mine was quite good! I was kind of picking out some of the kimchi, but it had some interesting flavors including the sauce.

B ordered the Hemi: Slow Roasted Carolina Pulled Pork, Mac 'n Cheese, Grilled Onions, Cheddar Cheese, Grilled on Sliced French. His was very good, so good he didn't want to give up half when it was time for our usual trade! But it was so much food I managed to snag a couple bites, before I was too full.

We decided to head over to Ettore's Bakery, which is a favorite of mine. I discovered it several years ago, and have had some of their cakes as my birthday cake. They serve breakfast and lunch, but also have their bakery with cake by the slice, and other tasty goodies. We were still too full from lunch, but we decided to take a few slices of cake back to my house for later.

The first slice I knew I had to get was the Princess Torte. It was something I ordered the first time I came here, and knew I had to get it again, since it had been a while since I've been there. It is kind of a drive for me, about 30 minutes away. Anyways here is the description of this cake: A three layer vanilla sponge cake filled with raspberry preserves and pastry cream. Iced with whipped cream and covered with smooth marzipan in your choice of pink, green or almond colors. Yeah, it's super good! It's really light, and I love raspberry anything pretty much. 

The other slice I ordered was the Napolean. I don't remember ever having this before, and it turned out to be not as good as the Princess Torte. The Napolean consists of three layers of flaky puff pastry, rich pastry cream and fresh strawberries, topped with shaved chocolate. The puff pastry was too hard to cut through and had little flavor. It looked pretty, but I know for next time not to order this again.

B loves chocolate, and could eat the richest slice of chocolate cake everyday, and still love it. So of course, he ordered a slice of the Truffle Cake, which was made with three layers of dense sour cream chocolate cake, filled with chocolate ganache and topped in rich handmade chocolate truffles. I didn't really like his, but he seemed to enjoy it.

We had a great time, and I can't wait to try some of the other food trucks in my area. There are only a few of them, but I hear good things! Look for some of those in the future!
