Irvine: (at Blackmarket Bakery) Piaggio

Pulled pork & asparagus over rice

Asparagus & mushroom quesadilla
Blackmarket Bakery was having an open house from 2-5 today and invited Piaggio, Burnt Truck, and Dogzilla. I was not in the mood for sliders or hot dogs, so I stuck with Piaggio with my pulled pork and veggie over rice.

Martin had chicken version, and we shared Piaggio's special, which was an asparagus, mushroom quesadilla in a spinach tortilla.

Fullerton: Dos Chinos

Today was not my most healthiest day of eating. The Ducks lost the game, so I decided to get a late night snack of pork bellies over fries at Dos Chinos, who were at Bootlegger's Brewery.

Garden Grove: Taco Dawg

The Dirty Dawg
The inside of a Dirty Dawg
Normally I am not a hot dog kind of gal. Today, I was really craving Taco Dawg's Dirty Dawg, an all beef dog topped with chili, cheese, crumbled potato chips and onion rings. It was worth driving to Garden Grove, despite me getting lost returning back to work.

Costa mesa: Burnt Truck, Morsels Bakery Truck

(left to right) Fried chicken, Bologna, and Beef Dip sliders
Tater Tots
Original Cream Puff
The Thursday gathering at the OC Fair has been positively received. Having the Farmers Market adjacent also makes it nice for the public, where they can get fresh produce and a fresh gourmet lunch.

The Burnt Truck had bologna sliders as the Chef Special. Pairing it with tater tots made it nostalgic. I also added the Fried Chicken and Beef Dip sliders. To complete my lunch, I had the Cream Puff from Morsels Bakery Truck.

Irvine: Piaggio, Barcelona onthego

Osso Bucco
Duck salad
I never take for granted that every Wednesday that I can find a food truck gathering on Teller.

Today was an extra special treat for two reasons:
1) it was a gorgeous sunny California day and
2) I get to have lunch with my sister

Ok, ok, too sappy. Today Piaggio had Osso Bucco over rice on special, and Barcelona had a Duck pomegranate salad... Perfect for sharing!

Santa Ana: Taco Dawg's critic dinner

Taco Papa
Reuben Dawg
The Dirty Dawg
Big City Dawg
Apple Taco

The Taco Dawg invited the media and select fans to their corporate office in Santa Ana to launch their new menu. Many foodies from twitter were there, and it was nice to put a face to a user name. The items they served were the scaled down version but still delicious, and the only item we missed out on was The Hipster.

Eagle Rock: Great Balls on Tire

Wild Boar
Pad Thai
As usual, no one was serving dinner on a Sunday in Orange County. Lucky for us, Great Balls on Tire was having a special menu at The Verdugo Bar in Eagle Rock.

After a 45 min drive, we found it in a sketchy part of town. We were greeted by a homeless man peeing on the wall of the entrance.

The special balls were: Duck, Wild Boar, Indian/Bollywood, and Pad Thai.
