A wine shop with a food truck attached to it? Don’t mind if we do. Let’s start off with the wine – they have a diverse selection including Maria and Sepp Muster – Graf Sweigelt and Sarnin-Berrux Saignee. As for the food, they serve everything from fried cauliflower dressed with a lemon caper vinaigrette finished with ricotta salata and lemon zest to their Kimchi Burger, a double patty smash style burger topped with kimchi, American cheese and their secret “pug sauce”. (No pugs were harmed in the making of it.)
