The Lab is a food truck still figuring things out, and we mean that in the best possible way. They're giving New Jersey something new at every stop they pull up to, from Elizabeth to beyond, and redefining comfort food all along the way.
Fusion is central to the experimentation, with tacos and sandwiches that bounce through boundaries til they live in their own strange realm of taste wonder. Even the lemonade's outside the box - punched up with a honey ginger serum, it's got depth that only comes from hard-fought testing. "Project Braising" is finally the main thread through the food - with slow-cooked meats optimized for taste and texture before getting finished and offered as grand results. But while the experiments vary all along the menu, the results are always the same: total satisfaction, each and every time. Hit up the Lab the next time it's out, and you'll start to understand the best tastes in life all come from questioning.
