BEST FOOD TRUCKS 2012: #23
Chef Thomas Odermatt calls himself "more of a caterer nowadays," but this son of a Swiss 'Metzgermeister' (master butcher) who still pulls his Roli Roti Gourmet Rotisserie truck into farmers’ markets, would deserve to rank among America’s best food trucks just for his prescience alone. Odermatt went into the food truck business 10 years ago, a good five or six years before the trend took off, a time before Twitter, when as Inside Scoop SF reported, getting a break publicity wise was tough, and the truck’s big media break came when news of the truck being stolen made the front page of the San Francisco Chronicle ("It's the first truck with a giant chicken ever stolen in the city, a police dispatcher said.").
After earning his master’s in organic farming in Zürich and attending UC Berkeley, Odermatt became more interested in the "wood fired ovens of Chez Panisse and the lively farmers’ markets," and took the popular rotisserie dinners he’d been making for friends on the road in a food truck. If you’re lucky enough to find Roli Roti at a market, you’re probably just going to want to order each of the three signature items: the RoliRoti Combo (a quarter chicken and a side of rosemary roasted potatoes), the porchetta sandwich, and the roasted pork knuckle. — Arthur Bovino, 11/13/2012

Just like the rest of the tips get the porchetta with extra skin. Here's a hint if you only want chicken and potatoes they have an express line, just go to the front.
Order extra "crackling!"

The porchetta sandwich is quite possibly the best reason to come to the Ferry Plaza farmer's market on Saturdays.
At the ferry building Thursdays and Saturdays only. Get there early and skip the potatoes (you'll be plenty full from the sandwhich)
Get the porchetta sandwich. And get only small potatoes unless you're going to share with someone or you want a heart attack.
Porchetta sandwich ftw...#12 on 7x7's Big Eat SF 2012!
Get the Porchetta. Especially if you think the pig is a magnificent animal.

Quality porchetta. If you like this, try il Cane inside Ferry
Oh my god the Porchetta Sandwich... So tender, so juicy, so fatty. Get here at 11am on Thursdays to avoid the ridiculously long lunch line. Also, as with most food trucks, it's cash only.
