Meet the next hot food truck, Asian Persuasion. They are having their debut night this Friday at the Night Market on July 10th at the Yellow Cab.
The owners Jason and Scott have been friends for over 20 years and have been working on this food truck concept for nearly a year. Jason told us “The best part about starting this truck is I get to cook food passed down from generations of Filipino and Thai families. Every Filipino dish I cook was taught to me by my mother. Every Thai dish I learned from Scott and Inpanh who learned from their mothers. I look at this as an opportunity to share a little of our heritage with people and feed them the same things I feed my family at home. The food truck is just the beginning.”
You can expect to see the Filipino favorite Lechon this weekend. This is spit roasted pork that can be done boneless but still with the crispy skin everyone loves.
Food Adventures will also be at the Night Market. Come help them raise money for Homefull. You can buy a water balloon for $1 to throw at The Big Ragu, aka Steve Milano! Let’s hope it is hot outside!! Homefull is our local homeless advocacy group. They help find housing for individuals and families, learn life skills and job skills and even run a small farm with 150 raised beds. All proceeds will go to them.
This will also be the soft opening for Bad Dog. This is Dayton’s newest hot dog cart. Local grass fed beef from the Keener farm make up the dogs, buns from Ashley’s Pastry Shop in Oakwood and plenty of veggie toppings and sauces made by chef LeeAnne House. These are truly gourmet dogs!
The Night Market, made up of farmers and locally made food, is held at the Old Yellow Cab building at 700 east Fourth Street. The market runs from 5-10pm, under a large 60×40 foot tent. The rain won’t scare anyone away this weekend! There will be local beers available, live music and tons of local vendors for all kinds of shopping.
