A new Boise food truck with a weird name is slinging lunchtime fare downtown. P. Ditty's Wrap Wagon, however, does not employ Sean "Puff Daddy/P. Diddy" Combs. Nor do they play rap music.
"My mom said if anybody comes up and asks if P. Diddy can rap for us, she'll come out and do it," said the owner's daughter, Miranda Ditty-Brown.
When Patty Ditty—for whom the truck is named—mentioned her idea for launching a food truck to her daughter and son-in-law, Shane Brown, the couple readily agreed. From the back of a GMC Value Van. the trio currently sling five types of wraps and bottled water.
The Hot Mama Hen features shredded chicken, cabbage, carrots and jack cheese, all doused in Louisiana-brand hot sauce with blue cheese or ranch dressing.
"That one's my recipe," said Ditty-Brown. "I wanted it to taste like a hot wing."
The truck also offers a rare vegan option, which pairs Morning Star "chicken" with cabbage and carrot slaw, covered in a homemade creamy sweet chili Thai sauce.
The Let's Get Stoned option includes pulled pork cooked in Arrogant Bastard Ale, from Stone Brewing Company in Escondido, Calif.
The new truck will sling wraps for burger-weary lunch-goers on Main Street between 13th and 14th streets on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays, and will relocate to Hot Dog Sandwich Headquarters on Fridays. They also hope to gain entrance into Boise's regular Food Truck Rally.
