Lyndley's is a life long culmination of my love for cooking great food and entertaining people. As a young boy I watched my Grandmother and my Mother prepare delicious meals and present them in such a way that people would be in awe of not only the presentation but the delicious taste. Over the years I yearned to have the opportunity to prepare food and entertain large groups so I designed Lyndley's Mobile Food Trailer. The trailer is is parked at 403 Eats in Tomball and when Harvey hit we were lucky that it stayed high and dry but so many of our friends and neighbors were not as fortunate. We opened our window and served free food for anyone that could reach us and we collaborated with Caroline’s Tamale Magic to help provide meals for first responders, shelters and flooded neighborhoods. This was a very humbling experience but we never gave it a second thought. It needed to be done and we did it.
The Ripe Cuisine food truck opened in 2014 and since then has been serving a locally and seasonally inspired, fully plant-based menu. Each dish served is rooted in balanced nutrition, utilizing whole food ingredients with global influences, and innovative twists on ‘traditional’ vegetarian cuisine. Ripe Cuisine was named 'Best Vegan Restaurant' in 2016 by Houston Press and anticipates opening it's brick and mortar location by the Fall of 2018.
Harold’s Mobile Kitchen serves Southern Cuisine using as many fresh and local ingredients as possible. Unlike many food trucks, Harold’s took the opposite approach with brick & mortar first and food truck second. During Hurricane Harvey owner Alli Jarrett made the decision it was time to take Harold’s food to the people.
While Harold’s Mobile Kitchen stops at local craft breweries, office buildings and festivals, it also offers customized catering for private events.
