Maximus/Minimus is the name of this pig, and it's one of Seattle's new innovative rolling gourmet street food vendors, with a chef and culinary crew cooking things up and dishing things out curbside. As you might guess from the way they've outfitted their rig, their specialty is pulled pork sandwiches. People rave about their slaw and their fruit drinks, too (take a look at the menu here). Their focus is on making their minimal offerings over-the-top in quality and flavor that will keep patrons looking for them. Most weekdays at lunchtime you'll find them parked here at 2nd and Pike, a block up from the Market. They also roll up for special evening events around town and games at the stadiums. I always feel happy when talented people who have a creative idea can make a fun venture like this a reality. I'm sure it's a lot of hard work, but doesn't just looking at a catering truck decked out like this make you smile? (And it doesn't even have its giant sunglasses on today!)
It's my iPhone Wednesday shot, where the photo and editing are are made strictly with the iPhone and iPhone apps. Sometimes they work, and other times they are so-so, but always a fun way to give you a new instant slant on Seattle.
