Until September 24th, another food truck will join the usual fleet of the Bon Me and Whole Foods trucks. Pasta Flyer offers 100% gluten-free, perfectly al-dente pasta, in the shape of screws, tubes, or elbows, with 3 varieties of sauces (pesto, alfredo, and marinara) and 3 protein options (smokey bacon, truffled poached eggs, and Nonna’s meatballs).
Usually I’m pretty skeptical of anything gluten-free, but this pasta tastes exactly like the real thing. I ordered pasta with marinara sauce and Nonna’s meatballs, and was very impressed. Not only was the quality of my meal outstanding, but their service is by far the quickest of any of the food trucks in the Science Center Plaza.
Unfortunately, pasta flyer is only here for a limited time, but be sure to stop by between 11:30 am and 7pm between now and September 24th! And if you’re interested in how one even makes delicious gluten-free pasta, attend the mastermind behind Pasta Flyer, Chef Mark Ladner’s lecture, “Al-Dente: When Plastic Meets Elastic” on Monday, September 22nd at 7pm in Science Center Hall C.
