Roaming food trucks are all the rage in Seattle these days (see our story on the Parfait truck below). And if you’ve been in Old Ballard on Friday or Saturday night over the last few weeks, you may have noticed this pig-meets-RV contraption parked in the grassy lot across from Bastille.
It’s called Maximus/Minimus, a new creation from the company behind Pasta & Co. and Beecher’s Handmade Cheese. It spends its weekdays in downtown Seattle catering to the lunchtime crowd with pulled pork sandwiches, Beecher’s cheese, chips and slaw. Now in Old Ballard on Friday and Saturday nights, they’re hoping to attract the bar crowd. How’s business? Slow, so far, they tell us, but they have high hopes for the late-night lure of pulled pork.
