Diners are seeing some new faces – or wheels – at NASA’s Food Truck Corral.
German, Cuban and vegan fare are now available at the popular food truck gathering on Redstone Arsenal at the corner of Rideout and Martin roads. The corral is open Monday-Friday from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. and business is booming. The food truck schedule – updated daily – can be found at https://www.facebook.com/NASA-Food-Truck-Corral-493247744194968/.
Come early, come hungry and come often because every day is a new menu of what is available to Team Redstone for lunch.
Below are three of the new additions to the corral and a sampling of what they do best.
The Cuban Café
Signature dish: “The response from people on the Arsenal has been overwhelming” owner Andy Ysalgue said. “We are so grateful for the support and look forward to going on post every week. Our signature dish is definitely the Cuban sandwich. Hands down. Our Cuban is as authentic as it comes.”
Hildegard’s German Wurst Wagon
Signature dish: Our most popular dish is the Jaeger (Hunter) Schnitzel, a piece of breaded and pan-fried pork loin topped with mushroom gravy,” owner Sabine Cool said. “Our schnitzel plates include choice of potato and kraut or red cabbage. We also feature sausages, either on a bun or as a plate with potato and kraut or red cabbage. We also offer our very popular desserts such as blueberry cheesecake and Black Forest cake. We are very happy coming to the food truck corral, there is always a line with folks trying new food and we also have a lot of repeat customers.”
The Hippea Camper
Signature dish: “The response has been great, it’s a specialty market so we didn’t expect to have the crowds that the regulars do, but I believe it will grow as we establish ourselves in the area,” said owner Garrett Hardee. “There is definitely a market for our offerings here! I would say our meatball sub and Buffalo Beans and Greens has done well, also our salsa and juices.”
