pelican po’boy truck

I love po’boy sandwiches.  While they are pretty much synonymous with food of New Orleans in my book, I never resist a chance to eat one whenever and wherever I see one.

At Off the Grid last week, I encountered the Pelican Po’boy Truck!

I got their fried chicken po’boy

Their special of the day was a braise short rib and carmelized onion po’boy.

NOLA too far away?  Check out http://www.pelicanpoboys.com/ if you are from the bay area!
