I was just thinking today that I would love to open a Paleo food cart! Doing some google work led me to this website which I was unaware of. Anyway, I'd like to have a food truck/cart called "Caveman Eats" that strived to bring Paleo eating to the everyman (or woman). The menu would rotate with season and the large majority of items coming from local sources. I love the idea of a pullup bar on the truck/cart too!! My truck could fit in the PDX cart scene I think, and supplement it's business with catering jobs. I think it could work! Now I need investors...

My first idea was "Against The Grain", because it has multiple meanings and it's catchy, but there are already several organizations out there with this slogan (google). There's even a gourmet food website that's all about that, plus againstthegrain.com and against-the-grain.com is already taken, so I ditched it. But good luck Gary.

I've thought of the following names:

Coconut Cave

Pasture Palace

Green Grass Grove

Jack Kronk's Cave

The Old Stone

The Grassy Cow

The Cream Rises

Decor, regardless of name, very warm colors, leaning toward a dark ambiance, to give it a rich look. The type of people that would eat here would need to be fairly well to do (maybe $15-$40 a plate), so I think a high quality decor scheme with a solid theme about it would do best. It would bring people into the 'experience' of it all. A "Cave" theme sounds most appropriate, given the context. But something 'wild' with earthy colors like orange, browns, grays. I also think having some sort of "express" type of deal would be a good idea too, to cater to people who want to quickly get some of this type of food when they're out but don't want to sit down and pay $60-$80/couple.

Food:

Grass Fed Beef and some Grain Fed Beef options - wide variety of steaks

Grass Fed Lamb - multiple options

Maybe some game like Bison / Deer and others

Some Pork options, including the best bacon possible

Pastured Egg dishes, especially for breakfast

Wild Caught Fish and Seafood, including Salmon, Shrimp, Crab, Lobster, Scallops

Potato and White Rice as "optional" side items to compliment meals

Plenty of great Veggie options, grilled or raw

Plenty of excellently prepared Salads

A variety of Bone Broth Soups

A small selection of well raised Chicken dishes

Plentiful variety of excellent Cheeses as dish sides

All Sauces and Seasonings made in house with pure ingredients and free of bad oils

Cook in Coconut Oil, Ghee, Lard, Tallow (customer's choice)

Raw Milk and Heavy Cream options

Only Pasture Butter in house

Choice Fruits

No Soda. No Juice.

Nuts: Macadamias, Pine Nuts, Almonds, Pecans

Wine Selection

So who's in?

The Stone Slab

Eggs, bacon, steak, burgers, grilled chicken. Everything grass-fed or pastured. Sweet potato fries, parsnips, turnips - all local and in season. Everything cooked in lard or coconut oil. Big-ass salads drenched in EVOO.

Cappuccino machine with grass-fed milk and freshly roasted, ground-before-brewing coffee and espresso. Lots of interesting teas and tisanes. Mineral water. Gluten-free beer. Egg-clarified wine and not wheat-clarified wine.

Paleo-friendly desserts.

$20 to 40 per person.

Edit: And decor? Dark gray walls and floors. Cool. High ceilings. Would love a long stone slab picnic table with wooden stools and then tall bar tables and more wooden stools along one side. If not a stone table then polished concrete tables. And also polished concrete floors. Lots of stone and wood. Big windows allowing lots of natural light by day and a huge antler chandelier over the picnic table giving off light by night. Plus several indoor fire pits (is that against code?).

P.S. Once a week, we'll offer a cauliflower, coconut flour or rice flour crust pizza!

I would go minimalist, as a street vendor, a pedal-driven hot dog cart with a parasol that just says, "PALEO".

I really don't think a bigger operation could compete these days, unless it's way out of my league (even as a customer). I mean, look at the menu in any middle-class restaurant, everything they offer has the same effect on the appetite as appetizer. That's how they get you to spend more money. That's what pays for the lighting and the seating and the whole shebang. You don't need that crap as a street vendor. Sell somebody a 12 ounce serving of cheek meat, they're good for the day.

Anything more elaborate than that is NOT paleo! And if you don't like the idea of sitting on the curb, chowing down some greasy glop from a take-out carton, YOU'RE NOT PALEO!!!

Not in my book, at least.

I think mine would be Grok's Grub -- for a Breakfast/Lunch only place...Basic, clean lines, with lots of wood in natural states with polyurethane coating. Not as simple of a menu as Chipolte but close.

For a casual yet more upscale meal I think I would call it "Fire" and use wood grills for many of the meals. Serving lots of Animal Meat/butter/greens. The walls would be a soothing earth combinatation with random cave paintings as not to overwhelm but to be a conversation starter...

Waiting area would have White board with markers for kids and adults to make their own cave drawings.(monitored for any crude images of course)
