Whole Foods’ test kitchen food truck's next focus will be pupusas, debuting tomorrow, Wednesday, May 4. Dina's Pupuseria will offer different versions of the Salvadoran dish, with fillings like smoked brisket, chicken, and vegan/vegetarian-friendly options. Read on for the full menu.
This is the supermarket’s second menu from the experimental food truck, helmed by vice president Tien Ho, who happens to be a former Momofuku chef. To keep things fresh, the menu changes out every two months. Anything that does particularly well will be considered for potential Whole Foods’ set-ups. The truck’s first menu, Tartinette, centered on open-face sandwiches.
The truck is found on North Lamar, open from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. daily. Two percent of the sales from the pupusa menu will go towards the Sustainable Food Center.
