FORT LEE (Feb. 18, 2016) -- Port O’ Call, a gourmet food truck, found its way to the PXtra Troop Store parking lot and is dishing out tasty Caribbean/International meals.
“Port O’ Call makes Caribbean food that is to die for and we are thrilled to have them on board,” said Sherry Pritchett, service business manager, Fort Lee Exchange.
The food truck opened its windows for business earlier this month.
Jameela Wilson, owner of Port O’ Call, started her business two years ago. “We are excited to finally get on post and serve our authentic dishes to the people of Fort Lee,” she said.
The hours of operation are Monday - Friday, 10:30 a.m. - 3:30 p.m., and weekends 11 a.m. – 5 p.m.
A new menu is created daily from inspired cuisines around the world.
One of the popular items on the menu, Peking pork tacos, was voted No. 1 favorite for “Meals on Wheels” by Richmond Magazine in 2015. The dish includes two flour tortillas filled with deep-fried pork with plum sauce and notched with scallions and cilantro.
“Everybody loves our food so far, and they are coming back,” Wilson said. “You never know what we will be serving. It might be today’s Port O’ Call – Juno, Alaska! A plate of crispy Coho salmon with maitake mushrooms and buttery Yukon gold mashed potatoes … or “Today’s Port O’ Call – Kingston, Jamaica, which is jerk chicken with peas and rice with a side of fried sweet plantains.”
