The Wagyu Wagon a food truck that will offer gourmet street food by day and be available for private party business by night.
The Wagyu Wagon’s goal is to offer Chicagoans a chance to feast on one of 4 star restaurants most sought after items, Wagyu beef. But instead of sitting down for 12 courses we want to make it more approachable and accessible for the everyday person. By building this food truck this can accomplished. The seasonally rotating menu will be creative, fun and delicious (A Wagyu burger or a Wagyu Flat Iron Steak with hand cut fries to a Vietnamese noodle soup called the Pho-Gyu) offering customers an array of local, organic and sustainable options. When compared to regular beef; i.e. all those fast food burger chains, The Wagyu Wagon becomes a healthy food option. Wagyu cattle contain a higher percentage of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids than typical beef. Also the increased marbling improves the ratio of monounsaturated fats to saturated fats making it considerably lower in cholesterol.
