What the Critics Are Saying
“If, as Napoleon said, an army moves on its stomach, then Paul Galvani is a one man army. Paul’s odyssey to try every food truck crisscrossing the nation’s fourth-largest city is staggering in scope. But as good as it is, the food is not what propels Paul. Instead, it is his passion for hearing (and now sharing) the stories about the people he meets.”
Syd Kearney, Editor of The Houston Chronicle’s 29-95
“This thoroughgoing guide to the burgeoning world of Houston food trucks outlines where to find the best of them and what to expect when you get there. I found myself wanting to jump in my car in search of Jalisco-style tacos Tlacquepaque or a Gujarati vada pav, which Galvani describes as a sort of potato-patty slider with garlic and green chutneys. I’m hungry just thinking about it.”
Alison Cook, restaurant critic for the Houston Chronicle.
“Paul Galvani’s book, HOUSTON’S TOP 100 FOOD TRUCKS is a love letter to Houston street food. It’s also the most comprehensive look at the history of mobile eateries I’ve seen. I plan to carry a copy in my car to use as a field guide to exotic eateries.”
