Food trucks and breweries are simply synonymous. A great brew can only be augmented with food that is out of this world. Here in Pittsburgh, we have so many options when it comes to both! I consider myself somewhat of a food truck connoisseur – we’re more likely to grab food at a truck instead of head to a fancy restaurant. What can I say? Breweries and food trucks are just the best.
This week, I wanted to highlight one of my favorite food trucks I just had the pleasure to going to for the first time, Just Roll’d Up. A sushi and poke truck with a home in Pittsburgh’s North Side, they’ve been serving up killer fresh food at several different locations throughout Pittsburgh each week. As someone who is trying to watch what I eat yet still enjoy a good brew, this truck is heaven sent for me!
Just Roll’d Up has lots of choices available for those who love fish and sushi newbies. Sushi rolls are 8 pieces and can run from 7-9 dollars each. For me, that’s the perfect amount of food. My husband, who doesn’t seek out sushi, loves the California rolls. I love a good spicy roll, so the firecracker tuna sounds like what I’ll be ordering in the near future.
Me? I went for the poke. If you’ve never heard of poke, this is bowl loaded with fish, vegetables, and tasty items like mango or edamame. I had the tuna 2 times, which was loaded with yellowfin tuna, pickled red onion, fermented seaweed salad, mango, roasted macadamia, wasabi tobiko, togarashi, and ponzu. You can get the bowl with rice, greens, or a 50/50 mix for an amazing, healthy treat. This was my first poke bowl ever and it will not be my last. Yum!
I was fortunate enough to catch this truck at the Roundabout Popup one of the first days this spot was open. You can find this amazing truck throughout the ‘Burgh! They have one place they’re at each week, which is Commonplace Coffee (for lunch from 11am-2pm) on Buena Vista Drive on the Mexican War Streets in Pittsburgh. Make your Mondays a little more tolerable with an epic lunch!
This week, they’re rolling up to Brighton Heights, Coraopolis, Export, East Liberty and ending the week on the 27th at Acclamation Brewing in Verona, PA. Check out social media each week to see where they’re rolling up to next!
