What happens when food truck food is plated in the manner of upscale dining? Paul Qui breaks it down in this new video, presenting his East Side King dishes the way he might have done when he was in the kitchen at Uchiko.
"The quality of food we use here at the truck is just as good as any restaurant in the city," Qui explains in the video, crouched in his food truck at the Grackle on East Sixth Street. "I think perception plays an interesting role with how people eat. I just want to show that comparison."
