Shortrib Naanwich @ Gaztro Wagon

0 Posted by - August 2, 2010 - Try This Shit

From the Board of Trade to the Western Blue Line, Ravenswood down to River North…Matt Maroni’s ‘curbside solution for your hunger’ is hotter than Silly Bandz and Kanye’s bitch ass twitter feed (you didn’t actually think we would drive traffic there, did you?).  So much naan has been consumed in the last couple months, youd think Lake Michigan was the fucking Bay of Bengal.  In short, if yall haven’t tried a naanwich yet, your officially on Lindsay Lohan status (= tired).

try and tell me she aint busted

Gaztro Wagon as it stands is a true monopoly.  Dorothy (Gaztro’s food truck) pounds out urban food blight like a bag of Flamin’ Hots.  But change soon come.  A Food Truck Ordinance should be signed and sealed within the next few weeks, which would effectively change the way we street dine almost overnight.  In addition to Foss, Sula, Tamarkin and others, thank your boy Waugespak for the co-sign.

Being a Edgewater native, I’ve spent the last few months watching the HQ grow.  On multiple occasions I’ve witnessed customers returning for their second or third naanwich of the day.  OF THE DAY, folks.  Think muhfukas is hooked or what?

One of Gaztro’s biggest sellers is the shortrib naanwich.  Tender, succulent, flavor saturated beef accompanied by padron peppers, red onions, goat cheese, and fresh herbs.  I’m not going to spend time talking about how good this thing is, Ima just let yall get down with these here visuals.

Sprite optional

Good looks to deep blue skies for putting this one up on the Chicago Gluttons flickr Pool.  Keep framing them lovely plates.  Daddy’s gotta eat.

    We stopped by the storefront a few weeks ago and really enjoyed the naanwiches. The plantain chips were great, thin and very crispy.

    BTW, have you tried the Bodega a few doors down? We had a great burrito from there!

    I had the wild boar belly naanwich the other day.

    This is where I would normally try to make some pop culture science reference about the speed of light with a clever little schmutz of profanity to hint at the damn thing disappearing so fast.

    But honestly I was hungry as hell, and it was one of the best things I’ve put in my cheesepipe recently.

    It was so good that I think it may have broken my comparison-meter because all I can say is: Get one.

    I’m impressed, I must say. Rarely do I come across a blog that’s both educative and amusing, and let me tell
    you, you have hit the nail on the head. The problem is something too few people are speaking intelligently about.
    I am very happy I came across this during my hunt for something concerning this.
