The majority of monolingual Americans are often bitterly disappointed when they find that René Magritte's Ceci n'est pas une cheeseburger is not a cheeseburger. Today’s Groupon offers a remedy for that tragic misconception: for $5, you get $10 worth of sliders, sides, and drinks at Slidin' Thru.
Using fresh ingredients, Slidin' Thru serves up gourmet sliders and sides in a roaming truck-about-town. Fill your maw with any of four Angus sliders: the barbie, a mix of melted cheddar and caramelized jalapeno topped with crispy fried onion, bacon, and barbecue sauce; the pep pep, crowned with crisp bacon, sautéed onion, melted cheddar, and super sauce; the yaya, a Greek chorus of red onion, feta, tzatziki, and white wine vinaigrette; or the captain's order, topped with crisp bacon, feta, sautéed onion, and a balsamic reduction. Special sliders include the pulled porkie, overflowing with tender, slow-cooked pork, caramelized jalapeno, and barbecue sauce, while the eggplant Caprese is crammed with grilled eggplant, basil, mozzarella, and a balsamic reduction for carnivore and vegi-vores alike. Snatch one ($3), two ($5), or three sliders ($7) to pair with a side of sweet potato fries ($3), French fries ($2), and drinks ($2).
Modern grocery stores strip patrons of the ability to show off their hunter-gatherer skills to potential mates, but Slidin' Thru's mobile mini-burgers make finding your chow an adventure again. Track down Slidin' Thru's pop-art-covered truck on Twitter or Slidin' Thru's website, where a new weekly schedule is posted every Sunday night or Monday morning.
