Gearing up for the debut of his Culver City Italian restaurant, Bucato, Evan Funke is cruising town on the down-low in a food truck, serving Umbrian-style porchetta sandwiches to the hungry masses. The appearances have so far been sporadic and announced without much warning, but for the next two Fridays, the chef is appearing Santa Monica’s Wine Expo “for happy hour.” Find the porky four-wheeler in full effect at 2933 Santa Monica Blvd. today at 5:30 P.M. The store warns that Funke sold 120 sandwiches in an hour and half last Friday and even though he’ll be armed with a double order today, it would still probably behoove you to be on time.
