The Gypsy Queen Cafe food truck, Baltimore’s newest mobile restaurant, is ready for day three of operation. The truck, manned by chefs Annmarie Langton and Tom Looney, formerly of Helen’s Garden, has joined the ranks of other local trucks offering meals on wheels.
Today, Gypsy Queen is parked on Central Avenue at the corner of Fleet Street. You can follow the truck’s daily movements on Twitter.
I just talked to Tom and Annmarie, pictured, who officially opened for business on New Year’s Eve. This is a venture they’re already looking to expand.
“We hope to have four or five trucks in the next couple of years,” said Tom. “Each one will be different.”
This truck is offering “global street food with an American twist,” said Annmarie. The menu, which will be evolving as the duo sees what people want, now includes such dishes as mac and cheese with bacon relish in a waffle cone ($7), an old-school burger ($8), a crab omelet ($9), grilled cheese ($5), a bagel sandwich with egg ($5), and even honey bread pudding in a waffle cone ($7).
The truck is open from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. and will be offering brunch each weekend in Canton.
Annmarie and Tom like the idea of a food truck. “Instead of waiting for people to fill up the tables at the restaurant,” Annmarie said. “We’re going to the people.”
