Bodega Taco Bar continues to make its mark on Fairfield County with the addition of the Bodega Food Truck hittin’ the road this month. The rolling vibrant green mobile might as well be named the party bus as it already being booked for private parties, school functions and outdoor events – and the paint’s not even dry yet! Fans of Bodega’s innovative and edgy, while authentic and fresh, cuisine will now have the opportunity to follow their favorite cuisine to a street corner near them or grab a taco while partaking in a local event. This taqueria on wheels will also be the centerpiece of Bodega’s thriving catering business.
The team has created a catering menu that straddles the line between “fine” and “fiery” with ease. From a Burrito Bar and Taco Party, to passed hors d’oeuvres of Tuna Tataki and Smoked Chicken Albondigas, party goers are assured to have a unique experience. Bowls of hand slapped guacamole, pico de gallo, and cucumber mango salsa with fresh corn tortilla chips are a true crowd pleaser, as are roasted veggies with poblano agave yogurt dip and ceviche bowls with vibrant citrus shrimp and scallops. That deli sandwich platter at the office lunch meeting is transformed with hearty “tortas” such as; Argentinian grilled hangar steak with chipotle aioli, greens and queso fresco; Grilled Chicken with black beans, goat cheese and pickled onions; Grilled Portabella with truffle red pepper aioli and crispy kale; and the Baja Fish Wrap with mango cucumber salsa.
On the buffet menu are a wide array of ”platos” including Camarones Enchilados, Slow Roasted Pork “Lechon” and Pepita Crusted Mahi Mahi a la Plancha. Fresh “Ensaladas” feature Massaged Kale Salad with kabocha squash, queso cotija, chilified peanuts and lemon-poblano dressing and a healthful Quinoa Salad with savoy cabbage, red jalapeños and smoked peanut vinaigrette. Seasonal and outdoor event menus highlight the Paella Party, Parrilla Mixed Grill, and of course, Bodega’s popular Whole Roasted Pig Fiesta. Adding to the fiesta atmosphere are Bodega’s signature cocktails; Traditional Bodegarita, Rosarita with hibiscus, Pomarita with pomegranate, the Mojito, the Alibi with cucumber, and it’s a party now with pitchers of Sangria! Look out for the Bodega Margarita Wagon!
The Bodega team is also sprucin’ up the auto in time for their famous CINCO DE MAYO weekend celebration which starts Friday, May 2 and parties on ‘til Monday, May 5, 2014.
