Meals on Wheels - Soo Bak Foods

The Albuquerque food truck industry is growing larger and larger and its support is ever-widening. If you want proof, look no further than the newest addition to the food truck family: Soo Bak Foods.

Soo Bak labels their cuisine as Korean Seoul Food. It's always been something of a small mystery to me how Albuquerque has made room for so many food trucks with so little overlap in their menu choices. I can't think of any other truck in town where you can score some sushi rolls or kimchi.

I'm admittedly not the most knowledgeable or adventurous eater when it comes to Asian cuisine, so I took to asking blog readers for their suggestions. For my first foray into the Soo Bak menu, I tried the Sang Choo Sam.

These lettuce wraps come filled with steamed rice with a Korean pepper paste and marinated ribs. At first, I tried to delicately fold the rib meat in with the rice inside the lettuce but after a few unsuccessful attempts, I abandoned my approach and greedily attacked my plate with a fork.

I was rewarded with well-seasoned portions of rib meat with bits of sticky rice attached with its bright red pepper paste. My only regret was not being able to fold it up in a neat little bite. But the flavors worked well together which holds good promise for future visits to Albuquerque's newest food truck.
