The Burnt Truck.
So there's this new restaurant called Burntzilla that's slated to open in the Trader Joe's-anchored plaza in Irvine at Walnut and Culver, taking over the Pizza Hut Golden Spoon* spot.

If you're familiar with the OC Food Truck scene, does the name sound oddly familiar? As if The Burnt Truck and Dogzilla joined forces? Yeah, that's what I thought too, especially because both trucks are known to be chums and have, in past Tweets, referred to themselves in group pictures as Burntzilla.

And then there's this description on the Irvine Company website:

The first of its kind in Orange County, BURNTZILLA will feature Americana tapas (small plates).The menu features gourmet sliders, hot dogs, sloppy joes and fried chicken while also incorporating some unique flavors and diverse cooking styles by serving Vietnamese pork, chicken katsu and fried cheese, all in their interpretation of today's slider and hotdog.
To get more info, I went to the source. I asked both Dogzilla and The Burnt Truck. The answer I got was that they couldn't "confirm or deny" at this time but told me to "stay tuned for more info"...which I'm taking as a confirmation.

More news on this here as it comes.

Ooh! That's right near my house. I'll be able get their amazing goodness without having to slog across the county. I hope they'll have beers on tap, as the only thing that could improve their food would be enjoying it with a nice tall frosty brew.

I kinda like the whole food truck ambient, but I always have to sneak a couple of plastic 187-ml bottles of Sutter Home cab into a paper cup so I can have some wine with the food. So if these guys get a license to serve beer and wine, I'll have to see if the experience matches having eaten from their trucks.
