Last Day for Evan Funke's Porchetta Truck Today - Burgers Only!
We don't like to lead with bad news first, but in this case we must: There is no more porchetta on Evan Funke's Porchetta Truck. Boo, hiss, we know. But the silver lining is that you can get a fantastic burger, one with sharp cheddar, house-made pickles, herb remoulade and onion fondue on a brioche bun, from the truck today only (noon to 2 PM on Penn Avenue in Santa Monica). There is a limited supply of burgers, so get there early. And they'll be at the Wine Expo bar tonight at 5 PM.
But the even better news: The fact that Funke is permanently parking the truck after today means that Bucato, the restaurant and pasta "laboratorio" he's opening at the Helms Bakery complex, is close to opening. Like really close. And the porchetta will be there, for sure. We don't have an exact date yet, but you'll be the first to know.
