Like the improvisers at iO West hail from all over, so do Los Angeles food trucks. There are trucks that serve Cajun food, Mid West comfort food, kosher deli treats and more. And, like improvisers, food trucks cover all kinds of ground throughout Los Angeles and are sometimes hard to pin down.
Well, luckily, one food truck is settling down right at iO West. Because of the relationship between the truck’s proprietors, Taylor Funkhouser and Neil Shuman, and the brilliant minds on the iO West marketing team, iO West will be home to Steel City Sandwiches every Tuesday night from 10:30 to midnight. And for those with an iO West ticket stub, all eats, from the signature yinzer to the traditional pierogie, will be $1 off.
Steel City Sandwich offerings include:
The Yinzer, comprised of ham, turkey, capicola, salami or pastrami topped with provolone cheese, tomatoes, Italian slaw and fries
The Champion, which is the Yinzer times two, with double the meat, double the cheese and a fried egg
The Cold Italian, consisting of cold cuts, cheese, tomatoes, slaw and fries
The Oh, My Cod, which is beer battered fresh fish filet under a heap of veggies, slaw and fries
And The California Transplant, a vegetarian amalgam of Portobello mushrooms, Swiss cheese, carmelized onions, avocado and a generous heap of classic Steel City fixin’s.
But sandwiches, or “sammies,” are not the only Steel City delights. There are of course classic pierogies, which are Polish dumplings stuffed to the gills with mashed potatoes, cheddar cheese, carmelized onions and a side of sour cream; and for the more demure, there is salad.
