Quick bites

German food truck rolls out soon

The food trucks just keep rolling out, and the next one will be German.

Manuela English plans to open Let’m Eat Brats, a German-themed food truck, sometime in May. It’ll serve German brats on crusty bread, warm potato salad, German cabbage, bierocks and strudel, among other items.

English, who is of German decent, has been working as a baker at Green Acres for the past eight years. She’s lived in the United States for 20. Her children are grown and gone, and she’s decided to give the food truck biz a try.

“I figured I’d jump on the wagon, so to speak,” she said. The truck will park at various spots around town, although English is not sure exactly where just yet. She’ll start with lunch only but may move into dinner, depending on how it goes.

Crawfish boil, Cajun fun
