According to the Cleveland Scene’s Douglas Trattner, one of their local food trucks has made his list of top 25 Cleveland restaurants Cleveland cannot live without.
Dim and Den Sum
Technically, Dim and Den Sum is not a restaurant. But having single-handedly jump-started Cleveland’s food-truck craze earns them real estate on this list. Through little more than will power, ambition, and caffeine-fueled vigor, owner Chris Hodgson burst onto an otherwise barren landscape of dirty-water hot-dog carts and industrial roach coaches.
He taught Clevelanders that good, creative, and affordable food can indeed be obtained from a mobile kitchen. Ever itinerant, Dim and Den Sum might be dispensing righteous short-rib sliders in Midtown one minute and braised pork BLTs in Tremont the next. Fans keep tabs on the meals-on-wheels wagon by following them on Twitter and Facebook. Catch them if you can.

We send out congratulations to Chef Chris Hodgson and his Dim and Den Sum Truck for this award. Not only does this show how mobile food vendors provide inexpensive, fresh meals, but also that they have helped the growing national movement of gourmet food trucks into the mainstream by serving meals that rival their brick and mortar counterparts.
Correction: We appologize to Doug Trattner for the typo.
