Did you know that José Andres has a food truck? It’s called Pepe and it serves Spanish-inspired sandwiches. The day that I went, the line was pretty short and I got my sandwich quickly, though the cold weather may have played a role in the short line. I ordered the Butifarra Burger, which was a long, narrow baguette with olive oil, bravas sauce and Spanish butifarra sausage. It was a bit too small for the $12 I paid for it and while I wasn’t wowed by the sausage itself, the interplay of the sausage, the olive oil, the bravas sauce and a high-quality baguette made for a really tasty sandwich. Still though, I don’t come to a food truck expecting small plates, so while I know that’s José A’s M.O., larger sandwiches would be welcome.
You can find Pepe’s location on its Twitter.
