Two new food trucks officially set sail in Wichita today. One serves pasta. The other serves gourmet tacos.

Gaga’s Grub is a second food truck by the owner of Gaga’s Grub Wichita, which opened in early March selling tacos.

Owner Dustin Presley was living in Perry, Okla., where he was running his main food truck. He leased his other rig to his friend, Vic Ramos, who opened Gaga’s Grub Wichita.

But recently, Presley decided to move to Wichita and bring his second truck with him. He’ll debut Gaga’s Grub pasta truck from 5 to 7:30 p.m. tonight, June 6, at Welch Cleaners, 858 S. Hillside St.

Presley will serve his favorite noodle, penne, with toppings options like red sauce, white sauce, chicken, Italian sausage, spinach, tomatoes, peppers, black olives, jalapeno, mushrooms, garlic, mozzarella, Parmesan and crushed red pepper. Pasta and sauce is $6. Pasta with veggies is $7. Pasta with meat and other toppings is $8.

Presley also is working on a small brick-and-mortar restaurant called Gaga’s Grub Lil Taco Joint/Carryout at 1227 S. Seneca. He hopes to have it open later this month.

Also opening: Uno Mas, a new gourmet taco truck by former Chester’s Chophouse sous chef Abel Rodriguez. The truck will specializes in tacos made with fish, barbacoa and al pastor. He’s serving the pork from a vertical spit on the truck.

Its grand opening is at 10:30 a.m. today at the ICT Pop-Up Urban Park. Rodriquez worked for a decade as the chef under Bobby Lane at Chester’s Chophouse.
