Julian causes a stock-out on Amazon.com

4 July, 2013: We used to charge iPods on ledges on the trucks. Sometimes they’d fall down. Sometimes they’d dangle ominously from their cords. Julian found these 3M Command Smartphone station iPod holders and started using them on the PRK truck. One day Waxman was working on Julian’s truck and loved them so much that he begged me to go… Read More

New hours for MIT truck (8am-8pm, M-F)

2 November, 2012: Hey all. It’s Sara here. I’m running the MIT truck. Over the past few weeks dinner customers may have noticed that we’ve run out of propane a few times, causing us to have to close early. It’s been really frustrating for all of us. Until we can figure out some kind of propane delivery, I’ve decided that… Read More

Clover fans in strange places

8 June, 2012: Last week I was closing my truck up after a long day. I saw Eddie at the HUB rushing to the restroom holding his hand and dripping from head to toe. The reason? A slip and fall in some spilled water turned into a deep cut on one of his fingers. So we headed to the hospital… Read More

Payroll blues

7 June, 2012: Sara here. Payroll has been the most stressful part of being a manager for me. Mostly because it is completely my responsibility to make sure that everyone who works so hard on the truck gets paid correctly, can buy food, pay their rent. We use ADP for payroll. My greatest payroll fear came true a couple of… Read More

The dark side

11 April, 2012: There has been a dilemma going on at the LMA truck. We haven’t been regularly using degreaser on some of our surfaces, and a film has developed. It’s pretty hard to see, but once I saw it, it’s all I can think about. We have been working on an area of the truck each day to get… Read More

Would you eat a ground chickpea?

10 April, 2012: Something surprising happened at the LMA truck a couple of days ago. A falafel ball jumped out of one customer’s sandwich and onto the ground. In the blink of an eye, another customer picked it up and popped it in his mouth. We couldn’t stop laughing. He said, “5 second rule!” We’re glad that you like our… Read More

Boston Latin School vs. Boston Latin Academy

19 March, 2012: We were at LMA serving up some dinner and two Boston Latin Academy (Dorchester) students came up and actually shrieked with glee to find us. They were surprised to hear that the Boston Latin School students (across the street from our truck) didn’t really know about us. So they started calling their friends there to spread the… Read More

Little Clover

5 March, 2012: This was dropped off at our truck a couple of weeks ago in a mysterious way (not by the person who made it). It’s super detailed with the customer’s favorite parts of our menu (apple fritters, anyone?). We felt really cool getting it. But we would love to give credit where it is due. If you made… Read More

That’s me before Clover

28 February, 2012: Sara (LMA) here. The year before I moved to Boston, I was teaching kindergarten in Korea. That’s me in the picture. Every Tuesday we did a cooking class, which was always my favorite day. I was exposed to amazing food. I didn’t like squid or fish paste much, but I loved acorn jelly and all of the… Read More
