Food Truck Spotlight: Gennarino’s Review
What do you get when you have 3 brothers from the area of Naples, Italy, parking a big Foodtruck in Irving off McAuthur and making some of the best Italian around? YOU GET GENNARINO’S!!!
But if you ask the “Brothers” to pronounce it, don’t…you won’t understand them. BUT you’ll love hearing them say it. The “Brothers” have a truck that features Neapolitan Street Food recipes from Italy and their secret “sauce” directly from their Mama. AND honestly one of the best things about this food truck are these brothers, Raffaele, Armando, and Alessio, well and the food.
Their named their truck after the Patron Saint of Naples, San Gennaro but also named it after their own Father, Gennaro.
They’ve mirrored their truck and food after classic Neapolitan friggitoria. These food carts in Italy give you quality food at low prices and you’ll find this at Gennarino’s. The “Brothers” favorite dish they make, the Timballo Bianco (handheld fettuccini alfredo).
The Brothers first made two items for the Jack Foodie to try: the Panarotti (Potato croquettes) and Timballo Rosso (handheld spaghetti and meatballs). Both items, well, let’s just say, DELISH! AND if you go, both items are $2.50. Where in Dallas can you find such good food at such a low price?
They also made a Pizza Fritta, fried dough topped with tomato sauce and mozzarella cheese. Fried dough you say? Can I tell you how good it was? Crispy on the outside and chewy on the inside. It was perfect! With Mama’s tomato sauce and chunks of mozzarella cheese, you can NOT go wrong with this. AND how much? $2.50 that is it![photogallerylink id=90378 align=right]
The last delish item they made was an Eggplant Parmigiana Panini. We’ve been told it’s Mama’s secret recipe but I’ll go back for it, yummo! The bread was fresh, the sauce was perfect blend of tomatoes and Italian seasonings. It was fresh and the flavors were deep and rich with the eggplant. Only $5, and it was a good portion size.
It was a good day at Gennarino’s! You left the truck happy as all get out just being around the 3 brothers and trying the authentic Italian food.
Wanting to be Italian.
