“From food truck to gastropup”
In 2010 Chef Saelg made the decision to steer his skills into the food truck race and pioneered the Orlando food truck scene by creating The Crooked Spoon. Along with a handful of other Orlando food trucks, they transformed the food truck industry in Central Florida with creative gourmet dishes and other unique food options. The buzz for Chef Saelg’s menu swept through Orlando, and word on the street quickly grew for his Crooked Spoon Burger, the 420 Burger, and the Six Cheese Mac & Cheese dishes. The buzz for The Crooked Spoon food truck was so great, Chef Saelg was approached by the Cooking Channel’s Eat Street to showcase a couple of his dishes on one of their episodes. This appearance not only increased The Crooked Spoon’s local fan base, but also created the truck as a must-visit for out of town visitors. His recipe for Swordfish and Grits can be found in the Eat Street cookbook. After three years on the road Chef Saelg decided to hang up his truck keys and fulfill a long-time dream and new era for The Crooked Spoon brand. August 2013 marks a significant date for both Chef and his resident community, when he opened the doors to a full-service gastropub in Clermont, Florida. Located adjacent to Clermont’s historic Citrus Tower, the Crooked Spoon’s thousands of Facebook followers and the residents of Lake County finally have their very own neighborhood restaurant to gather and enjoy Chef Saleg’s foodie favorites as well as an expanded bill of fare. He wants The Crooked Spoon Gastropub to be a place where locals, young and old, will gather, enjoy good food, and create memories. Chef Steve commits to supporting local farms and ranches whenever possible by purchasing their products for his restaurant.
It seemed they created a unique, yummy flavor that they incorporated into their recipes with a sauce. Unlike anything ive had before, i really enjoyed it. Fries even tasted new to me, but i order them without the parmesan. Ppl say its a few dollars too expensive, but i love the food.
