Slapfish Truck Continues Trend, Plans to Opens Brick-and-Mortar Location

Do well with your food truck, open a brick-and-mortar location? Could this be the M.O. of all future food trucks? We’ve seen it with a few different Southern California food truck brands, including Jason Quinn of The Lime Truck, who opened his own restaurant Playground , and now we’re seeing trucks like SlapFish follow suit.

Announced via the SlapFish Facebook page, truck owner Andrew Gruel plans to shut down his truck for the winter in anticipation of an early 2012 opening. Location, exact opening date are still up in the air, but Gruel told OC Weekly that the brand is “99 percent finished” with their paperwork.

More information on the restaurant opening as it is made available.

SlapFish Food Truck Serves up a “Lobsticle”

Food Trucks continue their aim to present gourmet cuisine in a portable fashion, and the Huntington Beach-based SlapFish truck is no exception. The seafood segment has indeed long been entrenched by the fine-dining and casual sectors, but with items like The Lobsticle, SlapFish is taking their innovation into the street. This particular item is a half of a pan-grilled lobster tail topped with chipotle aioli, champagne vinaigrette and fresh chives — served on a skewer.

The truck serves up a host of other fun seafood items, including a Tower of Tuna, a toasted English muffin packed with a generous portion of fresh tuna salad, topped with lettuce, tomato, thin cut cucumbers and a smokey, creamy, chipotle sauce.

Equally intriguing in relation to the The Lobsticle are their Shrimp Pops, a crispy bread dough filled with their shrimp and diced pepperoni, topped with a slathering of spiced chili sauce, aromatic chives and lemon — flash fried for melting perfection.

To get in on the action, stay tuned to the SlapFish website, Facebook and Twitter.
