ABQ Zine Fest is proud to announce that SOO BAK FOODS is the official food truck of the fest! This moveable, Korean Seoul Food feast, owned and operated by John Katrinak, will be parked in the Tannex parking lot, dishing out deliciousness on Saturday, September 28 at the finish line of the Seek & Zine Bicycle Scavenger Hunt, around 3pm-6pm and all afternoon at the 3rd Annual ABQ Zine Fest on Saturday, October 5th, starting around noon.
Zine Fairs can be notorious for happening in places one might generously consider food deserts. We know that ABQZF, happening at The Tannex on 4th street, minutes from the heart of Downtown Albuquerque, and just across the street from neighborhood breakfast institution, the Barelas Coffee House– that’s just not the case for us!
But . . .
Tell THAT to a vegetarian, or a vegan, or the lactose-intolerant so-and-so, squirreling away food in their cheeks and backpacks, hoping not to die of distraction, wondering where their next meal will come from!
We figured Soo Bak Truck would be a good mix of flavored meats and vegetable treats for hungry zinesters and locals alike! Visitors still have the option of strolling over to Barelas Coffee House for great burritos, (until 2pm on Saturday) or hitting the taco truck just North of the Tannex. BUT, if you haven’t had a chance to try Soo Bak Truck’s mouth-watering kimchi, prepared like momma used to make, you don’t know what you’re missing! Yes, yes, there’s short ribs and pork, too! The menu rotates, and favors the seasonal, but what you can always expect from Soo Bak is fresh food at affordable prices.
We can’t wait, and you don’t have to! Visit Soo Bak Foods online, meet & eat at the next rendezvous point! Follow that truck on Twitter!
From Soo Bak Foods: “Owned and operated by John Katrinak, Soo Bak Foods was conceived from a life long dream that came to fruition after John was laid off from Borders bookstore when they went bankrupt. From an early age, John was in the kitchen helping his mother cook up the most mouth-watering food your pretty mouth has ever had inside of it. ”
