33rd Street Hospitality Announces The Debut Of The Revolution Taco Food Truck - Ready To Roll For Spring Event Season

33rd Street Hospitality Catering is taking the tacos on the road! Chefs Michael Sultan and Carolyn Nguyen announce the debut of the Revolution Taco Food Truck - inspired by their brick and mortar at 2015 Walnut Street. The food truck will feature many customer favorites from the menu at the Rittenhouse Square eatery, along with several food truck exclusives. The truck will also serve as a testing ground for new dishes to be added to the restaurant’s menu. Philadelphia’s newest food truck will make its official debut at three of the spring’s biggest neighborhood food festivals, including StrEAT Food Festival in Manayunk (April 9), Cinco De Mayo at the Piazza at Schmidt's Commons (May 5) and South Street Spring Festival (May 6).

“We are excited to enter spring season with a new addition to our family,” said Sultan. “People recognize the Revolution Taco name and we wanted to unify our brand for our trucks, restaurant and catering operations. Revolution Taco Food Truck lets us elevate food truck tacos - and gives us another platform to connect with food lovers around the region.”

Since opening in January of 2016, Revolution Taco restaurant has served up thousands of tacos and empanadas, plus tens of thousands of house-made chips. In 2017, the food trucking duo expanded the menu with the addition of tamales, pig wings and other specialty dishes. The next evolution of the Revolution Taco concept was the launch of a new food truck. The duo will serve up many of the restaurant favorites, but also offer exclusive “food truck only” dishes.

The rotating food truck menu will change based on the day and the event type. Two new exclusive dishes available on the truck will include:

  • Nashville Fried Chicken Taco - Spicy buttermilk chicken with homemade buttermilk ranch, homemade pickles and diced white onions
  • Quesadillas - Various varieties using seasonal produce grown in the garden at 33rd Street Hospitality Catering (Currently, Revolution Taco brick and mortar does not offer quesadillas)

Taco selections will also include options from below:  

  • Chicken Tinga - Cotija, radish, & white onion
  • Korean Short Rib - Ssamjang aioli, pickled cucumber, sesame seeds, & cilantro
  • Smoked Mushroom Vegan - Cabbage & avocado chimichurri sauce
  • Gold Angus Ground Beef - Pico de gallo, lettuce, cheese blend, & lime crème
  • Chipotle BBQ Brisket - Ginger cabbage slaw, pickled jalapenos, & crispy shallots
  • Fried Curried Cauliflower - Guacamole, hot sauce, potato sticks, sesame seeds, & cilantro
  • House-made Chorizo - Cotija cheese, lettuce, crème, & salsa roja
  • Smoked Pork Pastor - Charred pineapple salsa, & red pepper crèma
  • Roast Duck Taco - Scallion pancake shell with plum BBQ, ginger cabbage slaw, pickled oyster mushroom, crispy chicken skin, & sesame seeds
  • Weekly Fish Specials

Other dishes will also include empanadas, burritos, burrito bowls, chips and salsa and more.

The food truck menu will also preview and test future dishes that will be added to the brick and mortar menu. “When we first started, the restaurant was new and unknown. We previewed dishes for our food trucks there in time for summer and fall. Now, the tables will turn. We have a loyal customer base - and we want a bigger platform to showcase our creativity. We will bring dishes out to the events that will later be candidates for our permanent dining room menu.”

For a first taste from the new food truck, look for the truck to officially debut at the region’s largest food festivals, as well as other events in the area. “We love connecting with our customers on their home turf,” added Sultan. “Philadelphia’s neighborhoods have a special and unique flavor to them. We love taking our food on the go and being part of those communities.”

Revolution Taco Food Truck is booking fast for summer and already has events confirmed through summer of 2018.”
