Drifting Bistro food truck takes gourmet comfort food to the streets of Fort Worth
Their Southern staples like jambalaya are as good as mama's recipe.
FORT WORTH After today’s lunch at Drifting Bistro, it’s crystal clear. The only complaint I have is that they are a Fort Worth-based food truck and it’s a long drive from Wylie. Ohhhh, but it is worth every mile!
Today’s special: Pad Thai Egg Rolls ($7) and special they are. They are as delightful to the eye as they are delicious to the taste buds. These delicious veggie rolls are served atop a roasted peanut and cilantro salad with sweet and sour vinaigrette.
Shrimp & Grits ($11): Chef out-did himself with these Wonton Encrusted Torpedo Shrimp and Grits and then threw in Fuji Apple Pickled Ginger Slaw. This tantalizing creation takes basic southern comfort food to the pinnacle of gourmet cuisine offering generous portions and endless satisfaction that lingers long after the meal is done. And just for the record, we think that chef makes some of the best Grits in DFW.
Last but not least, Pulled Pork Jambalaya ($9): Hickory Smoked Pork Shoulder, Andouille Sausage with Sweet Chili Saffron Risotto. Add some spinach, red & yellow peppers and this jambalaya is as exquisite to the eye as the flavor is enticing! I thought that I liked Jambalaya a lot, but this one is off the charts. It alone was worth a 48 mile drive through construction!
