From the windows of a saffron-orange truck, the tantalizing scent of spices and grilling meat pulls passersby in to sample the aromatic dishes at Erwina's Inasal Filipino BBQ. The mobile kitchen is helmed by a chef with two decades of experience cooking Filipino food such as inasal. That namesake roasted chicken is traditionally marinated in chili, vinegar, and a special oil and served on skewers in the Philippines. On Erwina’s counter, morsels of adobo chicken or barbecued pork sit atop mounds of rice and vegetables, served with sides of the same hot sauces actors use to cry during scenes where a coach gets mad. Alternately, patrons can carry away plates of pancit, soy sauce and pepper-flavored rice noodles cooked with a medley of chicken, carrots, green beans, and cabbage.
