Film crews for the popular Cooking Channel show Eat St. roll into town starting this Saturday for or a multi-day shooting fest that will feature six of Houston's best gourmet food trucks. The show is returning to Houston after a successful shoot here in April.
The filming schedule and locations are as follows: Saturday, October 19, 12 p.m.: Kurbside Eatz at Fox Hollow Sunday, October 20, 12 p.m.: Muiishi Makirritos at Boomtown Coffee Monday, October 21, 12 p.m.: Flip 'n Patties at Boomtown Coffee Wednesday, October 23, 12 p.m.: Bernie's Burger Bus at Inversion Coffee Thursday, October 24, 12 p.m.: Eatsie Boys at Eatsie Boys Cafe Friday, October 25, 12 p.m.: Ladybird at Museum of Fine Arts Houston (MFAH)
I first got wind of the Eat St. filming when I received an invitation to join Matthew Mui and his crew at Muiishi Makirritos for free food this Sunday from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Boomtown Coffee. (The menu will include popular items that they'll be making for the cooking show, such as mac 'n cheese egg rolls, pork belly bunz, Makirritos and shrimp and grits.
Mui said that he was contacted by a producer of the show, and added that he was very excited to be included in the lineup. Asked if Eat St. would be sponsoring the free food fest, Mui said that his team will provide the free food, an effort to drum up a big crowd for the filming of the episode.

Mui's mobile kitchen is not the only food truck offering free bites for a filming slot. On Saturday afternoon, fans of Kurbside Eatz can look forward to sampling "free crispy taco belly & more during filming," states a tweet from local blogger Jakeisha Wilmore of Cheap Eats in Houston.
I logged onto the Bernie's Burger Bus Facebook page and found a similar post about Eat St. on its page: "Next Wednesday Kiddies we are getting filmed for the show Eat St on the cooking channel. Come by and support us, get some free grub ("Principal" burgers are free, one per person limit) at Inversion Coffee House from 12-2:30pm on Oct 23 bring your friends!"
