Today my husband and I decided to a take a trip to one of our favorite destinations – a food truck! Eric had noticed the Airstream Trailer for the last week or so and after he told me about it, we were wondering if it could possibly be the same Lola’s that we used to love and visit on Brady so long ago. Turns out it is the same Lola’s, and they’re serving up some delicious street food right here in lovely little Tulsa!
Once we arrived we looked over the menu and decided to order a few different options. Something that caught Eric’s eye right away was the Chic’ Adobo With Goat Cheese ($7). It is a combination of grilled chicken, chipotle and roasted red bell peper salsa sprinkled with goat cheese served on a bun. This was by far our favorite item of the day! The creamy goat cheese was the perfect cooling element to the spicy chipotle chicken.
We also decided to try a good ol’ fashioned grilled cheese, but we were daring and decided to add some avocado to it on their suggestion! It is called the Route 66 Grilled Cheese and sells for $5 (avocado added $1 extra). For me I was really surprised that the avocado worked so well with the grilled cheese. The buttery richness of it harmoniously melted away with the American cheese, and I was a happy girl in my gooey cheesy heaven. The key to a great grilled cheese is the crispiness and boy, was it crispy!
Finally, with any street food trip, we had to the try the tacos. Lola’s tacos are called Gypsy Caravan Tacos and sell for $2 each. What a steal! Adobe Chicken, cheese, onion cilantro, lime and romesca are perfect for a quick bite or a light lunch.
I’m so glad this food truck rolled in to our neck of Route 66. There are some tables in front of the trailer for onsite dining, and the day we visited a very nice band serenaded us through our lunch. I should also mention they offer some desserts such as a Black & Tan Sundae and Big Cookies, for those with a sweet tooth. You can visit Lola’s at 1347 E. 11th Street & make sure to bring cash!
