RICEWORKS ASIAN FOOD
Truck Profile: Calle 75 Street Tacos Owner: Mike and Rosie Weems Cuisine: Mexican Street Food Most Popular Item: Carne Asada Behind the Name: The truck first opened while parked along highway 75 in Hailey. “Calle” means “street” in Spanish. How It Got Rolling: Both Mike and Rosie loved cooking and enjoyed feeding friends and family. At one point, gatherings featuring their food got so big they decided they might need to start charging--so why not start a business as well? Random Fact: Rosie’s mom and dad both had some amazing recipes they decided to keep secret. They made Rosie and Mike guess at the ingredients and how to make them. After lots of experimenting they finally got it right! These family secrets are now what give the food truck its distinctive flavor.
Truck Profile: RiceWorks Asian Food Owner: Phu Tran Cuisine: Asian Fusion Most Popular Item: Teriyaki chicken How It Got Rolling: The truck was built by the family back in 2001 and used for catering and deliveries. After being forgotten for a little while, Phu and his brother decided to reinvent it in 2010 into what we know today as RiceWorks. Random Fact: I ate enough of their Spicy Korean Tacos to seriously consider starting an addiction support group.
