Steakout Food Truck by Holy Grill
There’s a new food truck in town and it’s called the Steakout Truck which is created by Holy Grill down across from Mountain Equipment Co-op (MEC). They’ve been parked at the MEC Parking lot by 10th Ave and 8th St SW most days from around 11-3pm, you can follow them on Twitter, Facebook or the Calgary Street Food iPhone app. One of my friends on Facebook, Cory L., has been raving about this place non-stop, so I knew I had to check it out.
It was a beautiful sunny day out, perfect food truck eating weather, there are a few benches around the truck and some rocks to sit on so there isn’t a shortage of places to sit and eat. It was pretty busy with such a great location, just outside the doors of MEC. It was pretty easy to order, they have some menus lying around and the girl helping everyone was great! Super friendly and excellent at recommendations. Since it was our first time we had to go with the biggest possible order. We both went with the Prime Rib Sandwich Combo (the large 8oz) for $15, which consisted of tender and juicy local prime rib aged a minimum of 21 days, served on a toasted italian ciabatta with hand cut parmesan fries. I was expecting some shaved roast beef (where you wondered if it was prime rib), but NOOOOO it was a serious slice of prime rib cut right into your bun. There’s no fooling anyone here, it was straight up delicious prime rib in a bun, fries were great and the parmesan was a nice touch. At the side of the truck there was some horseradish where you can top on the sandwich and I slathered it all over plus on the fries. Next time I would get extra au jus so the sauce would drip all over my fries while I ate it. It wasn’t the easiest sandwich to eat on your lap but if you brought it back to the office and ate it at a desk or table, it would be just perfect.
I’m looking forward to trying the steak bites next time, I saw a few people eating it and it looked tasty.
