Tom Borden, owner of mobile food truck Poppy's Crab Shack, writes: "I wanted to keep you up to date on what's happening with Poppy's this season. We had a great first year but have turned the wheel over to a couple of chefs from SF, Mark Furr and Angela Chavez. Mark and Angela are seasoned in the mobile food truck biz (they ran the now closed Smoke BBQ truck in SF, check it out, they got great reviews) and were looking to move to HMB and start a new seafood based mobile food business. They are a great fit to take Poppy's to the next level. Everything will be staying the same, although they plan to update the menu with some new seasonal items -- surf & turf is in the plans. Mark & Angela are outfitting their 1965 Commander food truck as we speak and they expect Poppy's to be open for business in the next few weeks. Amy and I will continue to help them in the business as they are getting established. We are also going to be releasing our Poppy's Crab Shack Cookbook: The Story of a Season in the next few months. We will let you know when that happens."
Back in April 2013, Ian Butler reported: "I spotted this food truck parked at Montara Beach last weekend and pulled over for the best crab sandwich ever! Poppy's Crab Shack is run by Tom Borden, an adventurous Coastsider with a penchant for tasty crustaceans. He will be setting up shop at the Pacifica Farmer's Market next month, but now I'm dreaming of crab delicacies at our own Linda Mar Beach."
