Food Trucks

Ladybird Food Truck Not for the Birds

Here's one more reason to visit the Museum of Fine Arts in Houston, especially on Thursdays: Ladybird food truck. Officially open 6 p.m. to 8.p.m. (though they arrive earlier and will happily take orders), Ladybird fuels art enthusiasts, strolling couples, and passing motorists (those, that is, who decide to stop rather than just rubberneck).

Ladybird does not, in case you were wondering, showcase the beloved fare of the late wife of Lyndon B. Johnson. Unless, of course, the former first lady was a rabid fan of truffle tater tots.

The seasonally rotating menu features a few variation of dishes that have come to be staples on the H-town food truck scene, such as a kimchi dog, a hill country sausage covered in (you guess it) kimchi, chives, and spicy aioli.

More alluring, however, are their fun tweaks on tradition.
