The food truck (or in this case trailer) scene is growing in the small town of Anacortes thanks to Vagabond. What are their creations? Think comfort. Think Southern. Think biscuits and waffles and deep fried chicken. Oh, and there’s gravy and wiscuits. Has your mouth started watering yet?

Foodie Friday: Vagabond in Anacortes
My husband went to Vagabond long before I did. His menu item of choice―the Yard Bird ($9)―which is a fried chicken breast, layered with Tillamook cheddar and gravy sandwiched by a trailer-made biscuit. He likes to add bacon, and there is also an option to add an egg.
On Wednesday, he ordered it again. I took a bite and could instantly see why he liked it so much. The fried chicken was moist and the breading very flavorful. With the bacon, it took on a smoky flavor, and gravy made it comfort foodie heaven.
I ordered the Cordon Wow ($9), which is Wednesday’s special. It comes with fried chicken, ham, swiss, stone ground mustard, all pressed inside a wiscuit. What’s a wiscuit? Biscuit dough in a waffle maker. The sandwich comes out sort of like a panini, as it’s pressed inside the waffle maker. The flavors were all there, and the stone ground mustard gave it a nice zest.
Both of these items I would order again. And, there are lots of other dishes I’d like to try like Pops with Andouille Sausage, onions, garlic, carrots and potatoes ($8), Fried Pork Ribs ($8.75), and the Chicken & Waffle ($8.25).
