Carson: Global soul truck, Lomo, Ragin Cajun, Vizzi Truck

Bankok Night
Ragin Cajun combo plate
Mu5hroom Soup from Vizzi Truck
The South Bay Din Din had 10 trucks out, but we only tackled 5.

New truck, Global Soul Truck had a dish called Bangkok Night, which was a ground pork, lettuce wrap type item. I split that and Lomo's tofu spaghetti with Karen (not shown).

Martin went to Ragin Cajun and got the combo: half red beans & sausage, half jambalaya.

For dessert, we got the usual Tropical Shave Ice (not shown) and I took home Vizzi's new fall menu, mu5hroom soup, which does not look appealing in photos.

Los Alamitos: Papas Tapas

garlic shrimp
paella

After a long day at Gourmet on the Go, I wanted to have something different than what was offered at lunch. Fortunately for me, Papas Tapas was a new truck that I have never tried before.

The menu was vast, but I decided on the garlic shrimp and the paella from this Spanish truck.

sponsored by Crepes Bonaparte

After months of planning, my Gourmet On The Go event finally became a reality!

Piaggio on Wheels, Crepes Bonaparte, Dos Chinos, Tropical Shave Ice and Oh For Sweets Sake came to serve the people, and OC PARKS made it all possible by helping me with the local permits and venue.

Piaggio had his Milanesa Caballo and Egg over fries, and the Asparagus quesadilla as his main specials, and Dos Chinos wowed the crowd with the carne over garlic fries.

Oh for Sweets Sake sold out within an hour (didn't even get a photo!), and Crepes had a line a mile long. Even Tropical Shave Ice ran out of cups and spoons at the end of the event.

Three people tried out for the Nutella eating contest, and it took about 15 minutes for the winner to finish the 20 oz jar.  Great event... Thank you to the foodies and GFTS!

Irvine/Santa Ana: Barcelona onthego, Lime Truck, Oh For Sweets Sake

Potato Frittata
Heirloom tomato soup w/ grilled cheese
Chicken noodle soup w/ corn bread
I don't know what is wrong with me, but normally I don't get sick. Hmm, maybe it's just me getting old (er) but my tummy was acting up again.

This morning we went to the OC GREAT PARK for brunch. Martin and Karen went for crepes while on I got a potato & sun dried frittata from Barcelona onthego.

Later that evening, we went to Calvary church in Santa Ana. Martin went for sliders, Karen went for empenadas, and I went for The Lime Truck's tomato heirloom soup and grilled cheese and I also got a second soup (chicken noodle) from Oh For Sweets Sake.
