Beginning in July I am now officially part of the Gaienmae (Aoyama) lunch crowd.. but being located behind BMW there are so very few restaurants in this area thus the lunch trucks are a very welcome sight.
The most popular item seems to be the white rice or brown rice with 3 selection combo lunch for 650yen and if you like an additional 100yen for a cup of Tom yam kung soup.
This lady was moving as the speed of light and blabbering away... her movement must be very logically timed like a magician as she needs to create an illusion of putting on voluminous toppings but in slow motion there is just enough.
There are different truck locations:
If you join their fan club its 50yen off all the time.
Rainy days free topping... and after 1pm its 100yen off.
Got the chicken curry, minced beef thingy and a light tofu with celery mix (she recommended this). It hit the spot... but very spicy.
The Brown Rice
FYI there is also a cool little truck serving Taco Rice and CHILI on the same road.
Went for the Taco Rice and Chili with Sausage combo... 800yen. Incredibly flavorful, almost too flavorful but I'm a fan. Will return.
