Death might be your dinner date this Saturday if the wackos are right.

Death might be your dinner date this Saturday if the wackos are right.

On Saturday, May 21st at about 6:00 pm, the world is going to end. At least that’s what 89-year old radio evangelist Harold Camping says (hell, when you’re 89 every day might just be your last).

We’re betting we’ll wake up on Sunday morning to a slight hangover from some Armageddon party and go out for a nice brunch. Just in case, we’re planning on having a really great meal on Saturday. For fun, we asked several food truckers what their last meal would be. The answers might surprise you.

Brian Mullins (Ms. Cheezious) – My grandmother’s pierogies sauteed with butter and onions.

Oren Bass (Slow Food Truck) – Angel hair uni and ikuri pasta from Marumi.

Jack Garabedian (Jefe’s Original Fish Taco) – An entire loaf of foie gras. Uncooked.

JIm Heins (Latin Burger) – A Porterhouse from Prime 112, then meatballs from Prime Italian.

Chef Jeremiah (gastroPod) – Humble pie.

Richard Hales (Dim Ssam a Gogo) – I’d feed my daughter my Filipino grandmother’s Lumpia, then my mom’s white clam sauce spaghetti and for dessert one of my wife’s cookies. I would have a great bottle of Romanee Conti.

Troy Thomas (The Rolling Stove) – Small dive in Chicago called Susie’s Beef for their cheesy beef on garlic bread with giardinera peppers dipped in the aus jus so it’s dripping all over!! And a roll of peper towel.

Sef Gonzalez (Burger Beast) – Three cheese mac n’ cheese with chorizo. Toasted Cuban bread with butter and two Mexican Cokes.

Giselle Pinto (Sugar Yummy Mama) – I’d have a glass of champagne with foie gras to start, then I will have risotto with white truffle oil, pine nuts and mushrooms. Then lamb chops (medium rare) with a bit of mint sauce and a spinach salad with goat cheese and carmelized pecans in a strawberry vinaigrette and an almond marquis cake. Maybe at the end some cheese and again, Champagne. I think I could be a very expensive last dinner date.
