Munch Box: The season ends in Melville

The Munch Box, Four Food Studio’s lunch truck, has closed for the season. I’m a big fan of chef Ben Durham’s cooking — now available only inside the restaurant — and I've enjoyed many happy salads since the truck started serving in late August.

But in the end, I’d have to say that the truck’s menu wasn’t ... truck-y enough. Those salads hewed pretty closely to the restaurant’s, the sliders were a truck exclusive, but both items needed to be prepared a la minute, which meant that it took anywhere from 10 to 20 minutes to get your quick lunch.

You know what’s a good menu for a truck? Tacos. From Brooklyn to Red Cloud, Neb., I’ve enjoyed tacos made, in under a minute, in the kitchen of a truck.
