Now Arriving in Roanoke: Food Trucks
Noke Truck has been making its way around for at least a year now. I’ve seen it on multiple occasions in Grandin Village and Downtown Roanoke but never had the opportunity to try their food. When I saw a note on Facebook recently saying they were set up for lunch within walking distance of my office, I knew it was time to give it a try.
I really liked both tacos. They reminded me of some of the tacos I’ve had in South Florida and tasted more authentic than tacos from most other restaurants in town. There was a generous portion of meat over what tasted like fresh tortillas. I doubt Noke Truck is making its own tortillas in the back of a truck but it wouldn’t surprise me if they are getting them fresh from a local Latin market.
Along with my tacos, I also ordered half of a napoleon crepe. This crepe is filled with fresh strawberries and warm nutella and it’s also topped with chocolate syrup and whipped cream. It wasn’t bad, but there wasn’t anything that particularly stuck out about this crepe. Although, one could argue that anything with warm nutella is memorable.
I’m glad I was finally able to try Noke Truck and I’m so grateful to them for trying to bring the food truck trend to our area. For anyone in Roanoke who wants to know when and how they can find the Noke Truck, I suggest following them on Facebook. And I encourage everyone to branch out and give food trucks a try.
Update - May 2014
We didn't even have that with our latest visit. The tacos were lacking in flavor and the chicken was extremely dry. I like that they use corn tortillas, but that was really the only thing about our meal that wasn't mediocre.
