With all the food truck craze sweeping the nation, I decided to showcase my favorite food truck. ROLI ROTI! What does that stand for you ask? Rolling Rotisserie. YES! It is a rotisserie only food truck serving up succulent slow cooked meats. Roli Roti is considered the "Grandfather of Gourmet Street Food". Owner Thomas Odermatt is son to a Swiss master butcher that learned the importance of choice cut meats and poultry. Blended with his mothers cooking techniques and a masters degree in organic farming make him a master foodie in my eyes. Making his journey to America and witnessing all the speedy dry cooking techniques of meat probably made him go crazy. So the idea of showcasing his slow cooked succulent rotisserie meats on a food truck, spread out amongst one of the most diverse food cultures in the world couldn't possibly ever fail, right? I will let you be the judge.
If you ever have the pleasure of wrapping your mouth around a Roli Roti Porchetta Sandwich, you will then only know how I say it is one of the best sandwiches I have ever had. It all starts off with the fresh localy baked Acme roll. They then add slices of the slow rotisserie herbed pork loin that was wrapped in a skin on pork belly. They top this all off with onion marmalade, arugula micro greens and a pinch of rosemary salt. This sandwich is the total package. A soft roll stuffed with sweet, savory, salty, peppery, and surprise crunchy morsels. One bite and you will be hooked!
