The Box on Wheels Selected as 1 of 10 awesome Asian-fusion Food Trucks in America!

October 13, 2015

SkyScanner, a free online travel search engine, recently selected The Box on Wheels as one of 10 awesome Asian-fusion trucks in America!

Here is an excerpt from the article:
“Routinely voted Best in Seattle, this truck’s menu of pan-asian foods actually calls Redmond home, near the Microsoft campus, and changes locations regularly. If you’re in the area, the Pork Belly Bao for $2.75 is a great deal that tastes like a million bucks. People also rave about the Chicken Karaage Plate, which contains tender pieces of Japanese fried chicken with special house sauce, steamed rice and Chop Chop Salad. Honestly, this is the kind of place you can point randomly at the menu and leave feeling completely satisfied.”

The Box on Wheels Featured in 425 Business Magazine

July 9, 2015

Check out chef Reis Llaneza’s feature in the June 2015 issue of 425 Business Magazine.

Here are a few excerpts from the article:

“Reis Llaneza knows how hard it is to climb the ladder of success. The owner-operator of The Box on Wheels food truck — which parks in various Eastside locations throughout the workweek — was born and raised in Hilo, Hawaii, and had difficulty finding the right job after high school. Finally, his parents suggested cooking. Llaneza enrolled in a small culinary school and was hooked. He began working for different resorts on the islands, eagerly learning everything he could.”

Hawaii is definitely a melting pot of many different cultures and types of food, so I like to use different flavors from different cuisines. – Chef Reis Llaneza
