Tim Luym reinvigorated his refined Filipino-fusion flavors at Attic in San Mateo after Poleng Lounge closed in SF, and his new casual food venture, The WOW Truck, also calls the South Bay its home. Its grand entrance was made on Black Friday, complete with a permanent DJ setup on board.The fare is strictly silog, a traditional Filipino breakfast-y dish that always has fried eggs, garlic rice, and a heaping pile of meat, but you can supplement with adobo wings or sweet potato fries. The plates are simple, offering a choice of corned beef, pork sausage, spam, or chicken nestled against a generous portion of rice, eggs, and fresh tomato.
The team is off to a very active start on the Twitter and seems to have an affinity for contests and food giveaways, which is generous and fun but somewhat unnecessary considering a giant plate of food costs a recession-friendly $6 ($7 for Corned Beefsilog). The WOW Truck joins the ranks of the Bay Area's growing representation of Filipino street food vendors like Senor Sisig, Adobo Hobo, and Lumpia Cart. [The Feast]
