There’s one in Memphis Taproom’s back yard, but the only Philly food truck actually housed under a roof is at East Passyunk’s Garage. Up to now, however, it hasn’t really been serving food, other than the occasional roller hot dog. That all changes this week.

Proprietor Jason Evenchik finally got through the approval and licensing process, and he’s lining up a roster of guest chefs to cook at his indoor mobile kitchen. First up will be Mackenzie Hilton of Tavern on Camac. This Tuesday from 8-11 PM, she’ll be slinging three types of sliders for $4 a pop or two for $7. Options include slow-cooked pork belly with kimchi, Pineland Farm beef and a cheeseburger with Cotswold cheese.

Evenchik is still filling out the calendar - “We’ve got a bunch of lines in the water,” he tells us - but here’s a small sampling of the schedule you can look forward to:

- Second Sundays: Trevor Budny, sous chef at Avance
- Third Sundays: Sean Magee, chef at Time
- Second Thursdays: Mike Sultan, chef-owner of Street Food Philly

The changing variety of interesting food will definitely make Garage much more of a destination - it’s already full of fun vintage signage and games and has an impressive hundred-plus craft can beer selection. Plus, you’re still invited to BYO cheesesteak from Pat’s or Geno’s, both directly across the street.
