Finally getting around to food trucks: Harvest

People are always so surprised that up until a couple of months ago, I had never really tried any of the local food trucks. I tried to go to one of the food truck rallies downtown, but I made the mistake of going to the first one that was held and it was a hot mess. My job has me in a different city every day, and when I check the food truck schedule-no food trucks are in that city on that day. 

However, I live close to Eudora Brewing and have a friend that alerts me anytime Zombie Dogs is close to my office or home. Eudora's parking lot has started hosting several different food trucks on the weekends, as has my friends' workplace - Community Tissue on Research. 

I popped into CTS to have lunch with my friends and try Harvest. The menu that day didn't really blow my mind, but I decided to go with the local wrap. After seeing my pal's fries, I immediately regretted my decision to go with Sun chips. The wrap, I thought, would be so amazing I wouldn't care. 

The wrap looks really good on paper(or dry erase board), but lost a little something in execution. The photo above shows a beautiful cross-section, which is how it was displayed in the box that it was neatly packed up in. Only the first bite of either side looked and tasted like that cross-section.  
Let me preface this by saying that I know chicken is expensive. The wrap was mostly greens, a little sauce, some asparagus, a sliced strawberry and maybe a teaspoon of goat cheese. Very little chicken to speak of. It pains me to say this, but it was bland. What I'm really looking for here is for someone to tell me that it was an off day, or that I simply ordered the wrong thing. While I don't mind paying $10 for lunch to support a local business, it had better taste like a $10 lunch. You dig?

The fries are the best! When I ate here, I had a falafel and kohlrabi slaw sandwich, which was good, but not really suited to be put on bread and not worth the $8 or whatever it was. The fries though...I could have eaten 2 pounds of them and still wanted more.
