If there is one thing Phil Vanderhider knows, it’s how to serve up the absolute best authentic Louisiana style home cooking! In A Truck, LLC. and Cajun In A Truck was founded in 2012 by Phil who is a fifth generation Cajun who was born and raised in Mamou, Louisiana which located at the heart of Louisiana’s Cajun Country, west of New Orleans. The town bills itself as “The Cajun Music Capital of the World”.
Phil’s dream is to share the complex flavor and texture of Cajun fare with people outside the traditional zone of influence for what would be classified as “authentic” Cajun. Phil is an expert Cajun chef, but can also run a mean barbecue grill and throw together dishes from other backgrounds. But his menu for the Cajun In A Truck Food Truck and his new storefront location on Hillsborough Ave is spot on a taste from the Cajun Country! We sampled everything on his menu and our favorite by far is the loaded grilled cheese. Anytime you combine BBQ slow-roasted pulled pork with mac & cheese and texas toast, you cannot lose!
Street Laced has teamed up with Phil & Cajun to help spread the word to the businesses and community surrounding his new storefront location at 1045 East Hillsborough Ave Tampa FL 33604. He’s open there every Tuesday-Saturday from 11am-3pm. Street Laced will also be covering events in the community that the food truck will be present to help gain additional exposure for the new storefront location. We highly recommend that you try Cajun In A Truck once…because once you try it, you WILL be back.
