Get a taste of “soulful food” from Ballard’s newest food truck.
Snout & Co is making the brainchild of Lee Scott, a former bartender and self-described food lover who makes food “from the soul.” “I really do want to share and create for everyone,” Scott tells us. “Interacting with everybody you serve is genuine.”
The menu is largely Cuban-inspired, with dishes such as a Cuban pork bowl that has slow roasted pork in Mojo sauce and picadillo. “These dishes flow and even join together,” Scott says. “Black beans and collard greens taste really good together and black beans are just as important to a Cubans as collards are to a southerner. Picadillo is another dish. Cuba claims it, but it could just as easily be tagged as low country southern.”
Scott parks his big black truck at Surf Ballard (6300 Seaview Ave NW) from noon to 4 p.m. on Sundays, in South Lake Union on Mondays and in the Ballard Blossom parking lot (1766 NW Market St) from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Tuesday. “I can’t take that massive truck seriously,” he says. “The name and my logo still crack me up. I just think that it is a silly addition to Seattle and I like that.” (Thank you Cynthia, Kara and Colin for the tip!)
