LuckDish is not a food truck exactly but a food trailer — or, more accurately, a refurbished 1968 Airstream that serves fantastic Japanese curry. It's great stuff, thick and intensely flavorful, and you can get it in degrees of heat: 1 to 5, with 5 having the added zip of a dose of habaneros. The chicken curry goes on top of rice, in what was the original LuckDish dish, and now in a number of other iterations: curry chicken nachos, curry chicken tacos, curry chicken burritos, curry chicken quesadillas. You get the idea. There are tofu options, and Seo also is making teriyaki chicken tacos; omusubi (also called onigiri), the nori-wrapped rice balls; and something called the Godzilla, a teriyaki taquito. Along with the spice options, there are also toppings, including wasabi mayo, guacamole, cheese, tortilla bits and furikake.
