Marination: Best Food Truck in the USA

“Good Morning America Weekend” decided to look for the best food cart in the country and with the help of its viewers found it right here in Seattle.

Marination Mobile serves a creative Korean-Hawaiian hybrid menu featuring such items as kalbi tacos, kimchi fried rice, kalua pork sliders, SPAM sliders, and spicy pork tacos.

Marination’s Twitter feed will let you know where they’re at on a given day but generally speaking it’s SODO on Monday, Belltown on Tuesday, Fremont on Wednesday, Beacon Hill on Thursday, Safeco Field on Friday, and West Seattle on Saturday.

One of my co-workers has been telling me about this truck for what seems like forever. I’m kind of wishing I’d thought to get around to having their food before this recognition which is surely going to bring some longer lines, but, hey, what’s a line when there’s good food at the end of it?

    You MUST try it. I follow it around Seattle and eat lunch there at least once a week if not more. But even though they submitted their spicy pork taco for the finals, you would not believe how good the kalbi beef taco and miso chicken taco are. They are my favorites! And I even like the spam slider. So be sure to try it all and you will not be disappointed. Your life will be better for it.

    I got tired of having to soak whole muscle parts in teriyaki marinade sauce for days on end to get adequate penetration for flavor infusion. So I started using a technique known as pressure infusion marination to speed up the flavor infusion side of the marination equation. Google for “pressure infusion marination” now, if you like.

    I have no clue how to contact the chefs on the truck. If I could, I would ask them “Hey guyz – do any of your recipes utilize “pressure infusion marination” technique?” Surely someone reading this post can give me a site I can post to that these guys read on some frequency basis – or an eMail address I can hook up with someone on the truck – a cell phone might be asking a bit much. But I’ll take anything. Heck, U can mail me if you want – MrFizz [aat] Geee Mail [daught] com. Or heck, buzz me up at (409)FIZZ-GIZ. Many thx!

    Can anyone tell me if pressure infusion marination is one of their techniques?
