We are a little late to the party, as Hibachilou412 has been serving up food to the Pittsburgh area since 2020. But this Hibachi food truck's colorful plates of steak, shrimp, and chicken over rice or noodles caught our eye and is worthy of the spotlight. Watch their Instagram and Facebook pages to see where they will be next.

Sak Pasé: Haitian Food
Sak Pase̒ has not launched just yet, but it just exceeded its $5,000 goal on Kickstarter, and it promises to fill a gap: there are currently no authentic Haitian restaurants or food trucks in Pittsburgh proper, and the closest place is over an hour away. Sak Pasé Haitian Food Trailer's creator, Evens, was born and raised in Haiti and leaned to cook from his grandmother. Now that funding for the project is complete, Evens is set to purchase the trailer this month and do soft launches, samples, and pop ups for the first two weeks of Sak Pase̒’s existence. Follow the journey over on Instagram.
