New Philadelphia Food Truck Offers Cheese Curds
Just when you thought you'd seen everything in the food truck world, along comes Philadelphia's newest, The Cow and the Curd. This truck dishes out cheese curds-- the fresh, soft lumps of cheese before they are fully drained, molded, and pressed. They can be eaten plain, but at the Cow and the Curd, they are dressed up with a variety of infusions, then battered and fried.
Some flavor variations, according to owner Rob Mitchell, are garlic, jalapeno pepper, berry-infused, and dill, for example. Add to that variations in the accompanying sauces, such as chipotle ranch or honey mustard, and you have practically unlimited combinations. The folks at The Cow and the Curd are looking into meat infusions, as well, such as burrito- or Philly cheesesteak-flavored curds.
