Circus Food

Fojol Bros.' new catering company brings the show to you

This holiday season, the Fojol Bros. of Merlindia are taking their traveling culinary carnival to your house, turning parties into a dinner circus.

The pioneers behind the popular and whimsical Fojol Bros., of the Merlindia and Benethiopia trucks, have launched a catering venture, driving their fanciful trucks of fresh Indian and Ethiopian meals to you.

The mustachioed hipsters behind the trucks will prepare your choice of items from their two menus. You can select four curry options from dishes like tangy buttered chicken, spinach with chunks of paneer cheese and soft lentils, or traditional Ethiopian split peas, beef tibs and sautéed collard greens.

The turban-clad culinary barkers will also supply their ginger, mango or piña colada "lassipops," and sides like samosas and naan bread.

The trucks are able to transport a fully powered movable stage, so you can host music, sing, or give dramatic readings outside.

The prices start at about $20 per for around 50 people, though prices decrease with more people.

The owners donate a portion of all proceeds to fund at-risk-youth programs.

Which makes it that much easier to get into the holiday spirit.
