santoHOUSTON, TX – Alright everybody, you know what day it is. It’s the last Friday of the month. And that means: Food Truck Friday. And this month, have we got a treat for you.

If you’ve been to the downtown farmer’s market, or to happy hour at the Museum of Fine Art, you already know what we’re talking about. But for the rest of you, allow us to introduce Ladybird.

“Ladybird is a Houston-based truck that serves comfort food with an international flair,” media representative Phil Marshall tells us.

The truck is the brain-child of Houstonians Adrian de la Cerda and his wife Laura. The idea was simple: travel the world in search of the best flavors and ingredients, then bring them back home and combine them with classic southern comfort.

“This is the Kimchi Dog,” Marshall says showing us on of Adrian’s specialty dogs. “This is a hill country sausage that’s from Yokum, Texas. It’s served with a spicy aioli, sesame and chive and kimchi; it’s home made kimchi as well.”

It’s art and flavor served on a plate and made to go. And it’s likely no one is more qualified to put art on a plate than Chef Adrian. Chew on This: before breaking out and taking his treats to the road, Adrian was the Creative Director for the Orange Show Center for Visionary Art. But in the end it was the food bug that bit him and drew him out to this kitchen on wheels. And it’s bringing plenty of others out to follow as well.

All it takes is a bite. and who knows? You may be next.
