Despite this unrelenting rain, food truck season is underway in Columbus, meaning the streets are flooded with grab-and-go fried chicken, pork tacos and brisket sammies. This is why I'm excited whenever a truck, limited by the capacity of its kitchen and size of its menu, pushes something decidedly vegetarian friendly.

Despite this unrelenting rain, food truck season is underway in Columbus, meaning the streets are flooded with grab-and-go fried chicken, pork tacos and brisket sammies. This is why I'm excited whenever a truck, limited by the capacity of its kitchen and size of its menu, pushes something decidedly vegetarian friendly. Take Paddy Wagon's Port Authority Pineapple Sandwich ($7)-formerly featured on Food Network's "Eat St."

A fat pineapple slice is drizzled in Paddy Wagon's house barbecue sauce (a sweeter, Kansas City-style sauce), then seared on the grill. It's stacked between buns with a seasoned portobello cap, caramelized onions, melted pepper jack cheese and mixed greens. The sandwich is finished with the truck's signature 5-OH! sauce (and yes, that's a two-way pun), lending a little heat that lingers on your tongue after each bite. The sauce is a tangy mix of Ohio honey, raw horseradish, cayenne pepper, Dijon mustard and a creamy house buttermilk ranch dressing. Crunchy kettle-cooked chips are served on the side.

Right now, there's a couple ways to catch Paddy Wagon: Tuesdays and Fridays at the Pearl Market Downtown (10:30 a.m. to 2 p.m.), Thursdays at the Columbus Commons (11 a.m. to 2 p.m.) and also at Zauber Brewing (5 to 9 p.m.)-where I'd recommend pairing the Port Authority with the understated Berzerker Belgian IPA. Paddy Wagon also opened a second satellite kitchen earlier this month inside Rambling House Soda in Old North, where you'll find truck favorites and new Appalachian-inspired dishes.
