In 2011, Timothy Silva had the problem of finding a place to eat healthy and affordable food on College Hill. After a chance connection between Danny Do, Alec Babala and Otis Gray, Tim knew that this was the team of passionate like-minded individuals that will bring College Hill the first food truck that served healthy dishes made from local ingredients. Though their encounter was fleeting, the dream stuck: 2012, the Radish team is working day and night to make it a reality.
We want to create a seasonal food truck that specializes in serving sandwiches and other dishes made from only the most local and fresh ingredients. The Radish team knows that Providence is a vibrant community for creative thinkers and makers. To that end we want Radish to be a hub for artists, musicians, and adventurers in the community by promoting their work through the truck. Imagine a mobile gallery space that doubles as a place to get amazing, feel-good food you can eat with your hands.
Our menu will focus on serving healthy food made from local ingredients that tastes good and feels good to eat. Here's a sample of what we have planned and tested:
- Ciabatte, White, and Wheat Breads
- Banh Mi Pork Beef, Seitan Vegan option, Grilled Vegetables
- Grilled Cheese with Tomatoes
- Butternut squash, Lime, Puree
- Carrot, Ginger, Puree
- Hungarian Goulash stew
- Glass noodle soup
- Seasonal Salads
- Nightly Pancakes
- Weekly Baked Goods
- Signature Herb Fries
- Fresh Juices
- Coffee French Press
- Iced Tea
More coming soon... (sandwiches, soups, salads, specials, drinks, and seasonal variations)
