State offers energy-efficiency loan program


Gourmet food from a truck?

Capitalizing on a nationwide trend, the Ate O Ate Food Truck is about to begin service in Delaware County. But, as opposed to roadside food trucks that serve up hotdogs, burgers and chili, Ate O Ate aims a bit higher.

Its offerings include treats like chicken curry salad in puff pastry and smoked salmon, cucumber and green onion nori rolls. Its Rueben fritters promise “everything you’d get in a Rueben sandwich, but in delectable bite-sized pieces.”

Also different from most food trucks, it won’t set up in a single location all the time. Based in Roxbury, it promises to operate up and down the state Route 28 corridor and even offers to let visitors to its website suggest locations. In addition, it will be available for cocktail parties, dinner events, fundraisers and “all-out catering for all occasions.”

Main Street to welcome new business
