Seattle’s Moving the Goods: Latke Press Sandwiches and More

Seattle’s Moving the Goods: Latke Press Sandwiches and More

The Latke Press Sandwich comes to Seattle

Napkin Friends is a new food truck in Seattle that will forever change your definition of “sandwich.” Its signature panini, the Latke Press Sandwich, is a gluten-free game changer: rather than bread, this sandwich is served up between two golden-brown potato pancakes by renowned chef Jonny Silverberg.

Imagine, if you will, a sandwich in which the bread has been removed and replaced by two tasty latkes. What’s a latke? It’s Jewish for potato pancake. We’re not just talking any sandwich, though. We’re talking house brined, braised and smoked pastrami, horseradish cream, arugula and gruyere. We’re talking succulent Hempler’s bacon, smoked gouda, avocado and peppadew aioli.

You’re a vegetarian? How about honey crisp apple, sherry vinegar, caramelized onion, spinach and brie cheese with fresh herbs.

The finishing touches included adding some fantastic sauces or mustard and warming the Latke sandwich in a Panini press. What comes out is something that cannot be described except by tasting it. Let’s just say the first bite produces an OMG moment.

And BTW , for the less adventurous, all the latke sandwiches can be made panini-style or regular on a variety of delicious artisan breads.

Bringing your food truck dreams to reality

According to a market survey article by Investopedia posted at Forbes Magazine:

“In recent years, consumers have increasingly turned to mobile food trucks for breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks in between. A industry survey by IBISWorld placed annual revenue from food trucks around $1.2 billion in 2009 and annual growth rates from 2007-2012 near 8.4% annually. “Street Vendors in the US: Market Research Report” estimated that there are over 15,500 individuals who serve food to diners in open-air locations. Due to the continued growth in popularity, starting a food truck is a viable business opportunity.”

This positive growth in the food truck industry, combined with a fast paced lifestyle for many city residents means considering your own Food Truck business is definitely worthwhile.

Investing in a Food Truck or Food Trailer does not come without it’s own unique set of considerations and potential hurdles to cross. Careful cost analysis, combined with licensing and vehicle requirements are all a necessary part of planning your future mobile cuisine dream.
