This past Thursday I attended my first Seattle Food Bloggers event, organized by Frantic Foodie, Keren Brown. We met up at Beecher’s Cheese for a very quick behind-the-scenes tour then sauntered up the street to Sugar Mountain’s newest venture, Maximus Minimus.
The pig-shaped food truck serves braised, pulled pork and veg sandwiches, slaw with cabbage and fennel, and chips sprinkled with Maximus Minimus Seasoning Salt. [Bonus: They use compostable products to serve their fresh fare!]
Making each combination unique is the chance to choose your sauce, Maximus (savory and spicy) or Minimus (tangy and sweet). Always a bit wimpy when it comes to spice, I chose the minimus pork sandwich with Beecher’s flagship cheese, a side of minimus slaw, and hibiscus nectar.
The whole wheat bun was soft and slightly sweet, the pork was tender and full of flavor, the slaw light and crunchy. Before I was finished, I was brainstorming a list of friends I needed to meet up with for lunch. Maximus Minimus is open every day from 11:00am to 4:00pm on the corner of 2nd and Pike, the perfect place to meet downtown. My next order at the oinker on wheels? A Maximus pulled pork sandwich with a side of chips and ginger lemonade.
