July 10, 2015 (San Diego) While at Comicon we had a chance to sample some food from the New Orleans Cuisine and Catering Truck. We had the Beans and Rice. Nadin had hers without the sausage and I had it with the sausage. It is cooked separately, so you can ask it without it.

“Having been to New Orleans and Eaten down there, the Cajun Beans with sausage, it can also be ordered without sausage. The sausage is cooked separately from the beans and rice. It is very good. It is very spicy, without being spicy hot. But it has a good zing to it and it is well presented.”

They used white rice, but it still has a lot of flavor.

It is also served with a crostini on the side made from a baguette, to cleanse the palate.

I also had a beignet, which was light with a dusting of confectioner’s sugar. “It is very light, very tasty and served warm.”

It is very well priced and very good food. If they are at another place, no doubt that I will look for them. The prices were $8.00 for the rice and beans and $10 for two beignets.

Food trucks have become a big hit in San Diego, and at times work with microbreweries. In this case they are at Comicon, working together with the Bad Ass Music Festival.

You can find the truck, and schedule of future locations here.
