Chef Crafted Poboys and Regional Favorites

Hello and thank you for your interest in Pelican Poboys.  We are a mobile kitchen specializing in special events and catering.  Pelican started in March of 2015 based out of Oakland, California.  When I started this business, it was my vision to represent my home state of Louisiana with the flavor profiles that identify southern cooking while staying pure to using quality ingredients that can speak for themselves.  Everything I make is created from scratch utilizing the bounty of ingredients that are easily available here in the Bay Area.  I personally shop for all my food and prepare everything myself fresh daily.  The Poboys made on my truck are not the typical ones you would find in New Orleans. The food has the flavors of southeast Louisiana with a cleaner, lighter style without compromising the hearty quality of a good meal. I love this business, and I love good food. We get around and look forward to coming to your town or special event.

These guys are the best. Hearty, fresh, flavorful food that cannot possibly be overlooked. This should become an Oakland ‘thing to do’. Also if you are from NoLa or visited this is great nostalgia. Jack, and his bud that cooks’, are super rad. Their truck is incredibly nice and clean, too! Everything from top to bottom is delectably extraordinary! 100 million stars to these guys!thank you guys for doing what you do and sharing!

I had the shrimp poboy. The shrimp were huge, perfectly fresh and grilled to perfection! Also the house mayo was very flavorful and I was surprised I liked it so much with the shrimp. Definitely coming back to this place and plan to try the rest of the items, especially the Gumbo, really wanna try the Gumbo

Was so excited to see Pelican Poboys on the Food Truck Mafia line-up for Bishop Ranch in San Ramon this week. Like the fat kid I am I was the first customer for yesterday’s lunch. I ordered the Shrimp Poboy and BBQ’d red beans – SO DAMN DELICIOUS. The guys on the truck were suuuper friendly while chatting about their food. Was really anticipating to try their red beans and rice or jambalaya, but they only make it on their evenings around Off The Grid stops. I’ll be stalking them this coming Monday in Concord or Walnut Creek to try it. If the shrimp poboy was that good – I can’t wait to try everything else. YUM!
