Kick off the weekend with a basket of fries from one of the city’s newest food trucks, Essentially Fries. The truck debuts this Friday, Sept. 8, at Food Truck Friday in Tower Grove Park.

As The Scoop reported in May, Edibles & Essentials chef-owner Matt Borchardt announced plans to launch a food truck concept around his Southampton restaurant’s popular french fries. To maximize efficiency, Borchardt kept the menu narrow menu with one main dish and a variety of toppings.

“People constantly come up [at Edibles & Essentials] and say they’re the best freaking fries they’ve ever had,” Borchardt said. “Not a day goes by.”

Toppings range from Carolina pulled pork to fajita vegetables to white chicken chili. You can also order a classic basket, topped with just garlic and Grana Padano and served with a rich truffle aioli and a house-made smoked ketchup for dipping.

Edibles & Essentials chef Steven Teters, who has previously worked at Sidney Street Cafe, will man the truck. Borchardt and a few others will help out at big events and festivals.

“Our plan is to do primarily corporate events and obviously any festivals, Food Truck Friday-type events and community events we can,” Borchardt said. Customers can follow the truck on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram for updated locations.
