SAVORING THE GOOD LIFE ON CAPE COD
Don't Nix Fiddlestix
If there’s anything I’ve learned from pulling over and ordering food from the Fiddlstix Trolley it’s this: Stick to food on a stick—it’s simply the best!
Heidi Pleso, a Cape resident with a passion for creating food (and a dream to mobilize the trade), began her own unique business last year, selling gourmet foods on a stick and out of her Trolley food truck in permitted Cape locations.
Her charming green trolley hosts a blackboard menu with a list of freshly prepared, unique offerings including local greens to go along with or star in dishes like falafel balls, fried zucchini, and fried vegetable gyoza. Veggies are great, but you can’t beat eating meat on a stick. She grills up Cajun-style shrimp, turkey kielbasa and potato kabobs, and teriyaki chicken (serving it over a bed of coconut sticky rice, toasted coconut, sautéed mushrooms and onions, and sesame seeds).
How come I didn’t think of this? [Editor's note: the author, a wishful entrepreneur, says this to everything] Gourmet Grub on stick— the only thing wrong with it is town permits, in which have restricted Pleso from stopping in at more locations!
Pleso has spent the last year jumping hoops to receive town permits for her business. Though it passes all food safety codes and requirements, it is not considered a “real” food truck. After sticking around areas mostly in Sandwich for the last year, the Fiddlestix Trolley is gathering more permits in towns across the Cape, so keep your eyes peeled for it!
