Gypsy’s Truckstaurant:  Food, Fun, Flavorful and Friendly

I bet you are asking what is a truckstaurant?  In essence, it is a former industrial garage, converted into a restaurant and bar with the kitchen being outside in what seems to be a large car carrier. And who better than the winner of numerous tri-state food truck cook-offs than Chef Annmarie Langton of Gypsy Queen Café to bring her casual cuisine to this unique space. Now add, Chef Tom Looney, her former partner from Helen’s Garden in Canton and you have another big-time winner.  Looney’s Bar Liquorice has just garnered Baltimore’s Best Cocktail Bar by the Baltimore Business Journal. Of course, one can find the same creativity at the bar at the truckstaurant.  Now that is not to say that Looney’s creativity is limited to cocktails – his culinary creations are probably 50% of what is on the menu.

Set back off Clipper Mill Road, Gypsy’s Truckstaurant welcomes you first with their al fresco dining tables and the ping pong table that is just before you enter.  Personally, I’ve been three times, one time was a media event to introduce us to the new and unique space and casual menu items – too many to mention but there plenty of snapshots within the story.  The second time for me was happy hour with my girlfriend where we indulged in Buffalo Garlic Parmesan Wings, Curried Chicken and Rice with Naan, and the Gypsy Campfire Dessert.  While there, we took advantage of their Devil’s Happy Hours ($6 Ice Queens, $Wines & $Draft Beer).

Gypsy’s Truckstaurant is a place where I would feel comfortable eating alone at the bar or grabbing a booth with friends. Whether at the bar or in a booth, one should not miss the insanely delicious Gypsy Queen Café’s “award-winning” tasty Crab Cake Waffle Cone, stuffed to abundance with beach fries, a tasty rendition of a Maryland crab cake with the aioli topping.

My third visit was with high school friends who were suitably impressed with the food, the atmosphere and the price point.  The staff is friendly, knowledgeable and accommodating.  The menuis creative, tasty and the offers numerous options. The atmosphere, well… fun and funky – you know once you are in the door you will have a good time.
