Try this week: Coconut Shrimp Bowl @ The Bamboo Skewer


How do the folks running the Bamboo Skewer food truck, which specializes in Japanese-inspired street food, get so much coconut flavor into the shrimp? That’s the question we were left with after ordering (and devouring) the coconut shrimp bowl from the truck on a recent sunny afternoon at Rayback Collective. Served alongside rice, slaw and a sweet chili sauce, the coconut shrimp is outstanding — fried in a seasoned coconut breading until golden and exceptionally crispy. Dip it in the chili sauce for a sweet-sour tang, and you’ll be happy.
