While you were drinking last weekend, former Lockwood chef Phillip Foss and his wife Kenni launched their own food truck. The "Meatyballs Mobile" is serving meatball sliders, smoked pork shoulder in a bourbon-cola barbecue sauce and chicken curry with saffron and mango chutney. The Fosses took the truck on a run through Wicker Park and Lincoln Park with little more than an announcement on twitter, to a good reception.

Phillip Foss told us that the truck is fully licensed and that the sandwiches are being prepared in a shared use kitchen. A press release sent out this morning announced that the Meatyballs Mobile will be offering vegetarian and pescetarian sandwich options as they move forward. They'll be serving lunch today in the West Loop. To see where the Meatyballs Mobile will be, follow them on Twitter at @FossFoodTrucks.
