16 February, 2021: Did you hear we made churros for our Super Bowl Meal Box? Chris purchased a churro maker and perfected a chocolate cinnamon sauce. The team squeezed and fried and packed a lot of dough.Then all the boxes got delivered. The smell of cinnamon sugar faded from the HUB. The churro maker lay dormant. Soon the letters/texts/phone calls came in, begging us,… Read More

Marathon Sports + Clover 👟

15 February, 2021: Get a box! You know that feeling when you really like somebody and then find out they like you a lot too? That's how it felt when Marathon Sports reached out to us about a collaboration. I had plantar fasciitis a few years back. I won’t go on about it, but suffice to say it was terrible. After suffering for a while, I… Read More

Modern Plastics

8 October, 2008: If you've been following our progress you know that when faced a problem we discovered the awning system was going to take a while to figure out. The truck has two enormous holes in the side. As a back-up plan I figured we could cover the windows with some sort of "storm window." I figured we'd need… Read More

22 January, 2021: My sister Asa and my best friend Alex met at a Super Bowl party in my tiny apartment when I was in grad school. Ever since then (Alex is now my brother-in-law) the Super Bowl has held a bit of extra meaning for our family. We don’t miss it. And as you may have guessed, food plays a central… Read More

Fresh juice

5 December, 2008: There are a few things you don't know about the master plan. One is fresh juice. Someday juice will be as important as our fries and soups and sandwiches. I've listened patiently while many have told me why the juice vision will never work, but I remain entirely convinced it will be very very important. We're talking… Read More

Bridgewater farewell

19 January, 2021: The Bridgewater has the most die-hard fans of any mushroom sandwich on our menu. If we had more sandwich slots on our menu, we'd probably keep it on forever. But all good things must come to an end, and in this case, Mother Nature is getting involved. Sunchokes are in season, so the Bridgewater must disappear to… Read More

Gooseberry’s at lunchtime

17 September, 2008: I think Gooseberry's, the Asian food truck at MIT, rocks. Obviously I'm not the only one. This is the line at lunchtime. Nothing special, this is an everyday event. These people are ALL waiting for that white truck up ahead. And it's not a very long wait, they process folks at a rate of close to 10… Read More

Pushpir sandwiches hit restaurants!

13 January, 2021: Remember when Pushpir came into the kitchen at CloverHSQ and schooled Ayr on Northern Indian cooking? That was 2013. I still remember the smell of the cilantro, mint, jalapeños, and orange juice in the blender. We hadn't smelled that exact combo before. It was so cool to see one of my culinary heroes in our kitchen. Pushpir Bhetia used to run Guru the Caterer. I… Read More
