Old World Food Truck

San Francisco, Calif.

What to Order: Schnitzelwich

New York City transplant Kenny Hockert is bringing some Eastern European soul to the Bay Area, one cup of borscht at a time. His Old World Food Truck rolled onto the streets this spring after experimenting with recipes for chopped liver and pierogies at pop-up dinners he hosted. Hockert likes to update Jewish classics, filling airy knishes with seasonal vegetables alongside buttery potato mash, and serving up a Reuben sandwich on thick Texas toast. Hockert’s Schnitzelwich layers a dab of chopped liver, a smear of honey and spoonful of garlic slaw onto a fried chicken cutlet. It’s old world cuisine with a fresh, farm-to-table approach that easily straddles the generational divide.
