what da scoopDallas/Fort Worth, TX – Launching in Dallas/Fort Worth in May 2013 and delivering hand-scooped, premium old-fashioned ice creams fresh from Wisconsin to DFW-area ice cream enthusiasts, What’s Da Scoop? is anything but your ordinary neighborhood ice cream truck.  With the ever-growing popularity of food trucks in the DFW Metroplex and consumers’ expanding palette, What’s Da Scoop?  takes the concept of an ice cream truck to new heights and territory with flavors, cones, toppings and combinations thereof, well beyond traditional basics.

Signature ice cream flavors, to just name a few, include: “Fat Elvis” (consisting of 100% organic banana puree, chocolate chips and peanut butter chunks), “Blue Moon” (a blue ice cream that awakens your inner-kid with its Fruit Loops appeal) and “Espresso Almond Fudge” (a chocolate/espresso bean delight) making this newest addition to the DFW food truck scene a creative, custom flavored, frozen culinary experience.   In addition to its unique ice cream flavors, What’s Da Scoop? offers delectable cones, unique toppings, and creatively crafted floats and sundaes that will satisfy the kids, adults with a sweet tooth and even the gourmet foodie.  Signature sundaes, cones and floats include:  “Blue Suede Shoes” Sundae (candied bacon, Fat Elvis ice cream, chocolate-peanut butter sauce & whipped cream), “Black Magic” Cone (Nutella lined waffle cone, Zanzibar ice cream, Dulce De Leche, sea salt & whipped cream) and customized floats made with Dr. Brown’s Root Beer, Dr. Brown’s Cream Soda, Dr. Brown’s Black Cherry, Coca Cola or Dr. Pepper. 

What’s Da Scoop? is the brain child of Two Trucks, LLC business partners Dain Pool and Jonathan Wagner, who are also the proprietors of Dallas/Fort Worth area’s  The Butcher’s Son and Gandolfo’s New York Deli food trucks.  “I attended school in Madison, Wisconsin,” states Two Trucks, LLC Co-Owner Jonathan Wagner, “and when I moved to the Dallas/Fort Worth area, I really missed that rich, creamy, Wisconsin-style of ice cream, so it’s always been our goal to add an ice cream truck of this unique style and quality to our already successful brands of food trucks.  The weather in Texas makes this a year-round opportunity and what better time to launch than now, as summer is just around the corner?”  In the short period of time What’s Da Scoop? has been in operation it is fast becoming a destination as it serves area universities, businesses, food truck parks, festivals, special events as well as private parties and weddings. For more information log onto, follow or like at:  www.whatsdascoop.com, Twitter:  www.twitter.com/whatsdascooptx or Facebook:  www.facebook.com/whatsdascooptx

The Nammi formula that began serving the major DFW metroplex area in 2011 was based on a simple equation:

(2 starving architects with passions for good food x empty wallets) + 1 beat down truck = great idea! Their Mission, to make banh mi for everyone to enjoy!

nammi-truck

The Nammi Truck is a Vietnamese Fusion Truck serving up banh mi, Vietnamese tacos and much more to the DFW metroplex.  They are not trying to re-invent banh mi or Vietnamese Cuisine but want to share their take on this Vietnamese classic.

Teena Nguyen recalled the story of how the truck started where her brother, who runs a construction catering company, had an extra truck – but it was old, nearly rusted through, and needed a huge amount of work. “I told him I was thinking of a little side project I wanted to do with it,” she said. “But you can’t do something like this just as a side project.”

It would seem it wasn’t really something that could be run on the side. Nguyen and Nammi Food Truck co-owner Gary Torres have spent four months on their now-renovated food truck, routinely logging 18-hour days in the 100-degree heat while traveling through the city serving up their hot, fresh and filling sandwich – the Banh Mi (Bánh Mì).

The banh mi, whose history Ngyuen and Torres have summarized on the side of their truck is a sandwich whose heritage could accurately be described as half Vietnamese and half French. The sandwich fits a culture accustomed to hot weather, be it Vietnam or Dallas. There are plenty of different kinds of banh mi, and even more opinions on how they should taste. What’s important to Nammi, though, is that they make them all taste good.

“Really, it’s supposed to taste different to everyone. A lot of people focus on the bread, so their first reaction is ‘how’s the bread?’ They could care less about what’s inside. Then some other people are like ‘No, it’s all about the meat, and the bread is just what holds it,’” says Nguyen. “It tastes different to everyone, and that’s what I love about banh mi – that it’s so different, unique and versatile.”

Nguyen and Torres got the right idea by rolling with an easy menu of Vietnamese classics. You are able to choose from bánh mì, rice bowls or tacos. Torres, who has been making sandwiches since he was little, said the truck will customize every order to a customer’s liking.

To do this they offer customized sandwiches with grilled pork, barbecue pork, lemongrass beef, lemongrass chicken or tofu. Once your protein is selected they also offer fresh toppings, like cilantro, sweet pickled carrots, daikon radish, crunchy cucumbers and jalapeños.

Regardless of your choice, portions are quite substantial. And finally, don’t forget to wash everything down with their cool mint lemonade.

The Nammi team ran into a few potholes when they first began, “When we first came out, there would be days where it seemed like no one would come, and we’d just be wondering ‘are we doing the right thing?’ We’d pull up to a location, and it would just be crickets,” says Nguyen. “But it gets better and better every week. The word of mouth has really, more than anything else, been the biggest thing for us. It’s really been amazing.”

The Nammi food truck can be found in Dallas/Fort Worth and their surrounding neighborhoods throughout the week.

Updates are posted on http://nammitruck.com/Twitter, and Facebook. The food truck is also available for private events, weddings and delivery lunch orders, which means one way or another; you’ll get your Nammi.

Our recommendation:

The bánh mì is the best Nammi has to offer. It’s a little pricier than other bánh mì you may have seen at restaurants, but if you want the good stuff, you have to shell out some cash.

What their fans have said:

One delightful treat is their basil mint lemonade. SO refreshing! Don’t let the ingredients scare you… especially in the heat of summer, it is great to have one of these while you’re waiting for them to make your sandwich. It is worth a couple extra bucks and goes really well with the banh mi. Krystle S. – Dallas, TX
