Fullerton: Doschinos, Chunknchip

Breakfast Taco
Hollywood chicken
Bolsa Burrito
Bolsa "plate"
Boo-yah!
The Chuckwagon at Carter Bowl was postponed, so the location got rerouted to Amerige & Harbor in downtown Fullerton.

Martin was already at Doschinos with a student, and they ordered the Doschinos Breakfast Taco, which is steak, rice, chorizo and an egg on top, the Bolsa (pork belly) burrito, and the Hollywood taco, a thai curry chicken taco.

While they went to Chunknchip for dessert, I ordered my Doschinos meal, but off the menu.. Pork bellies over garlic rice. Only the "true" Dos Chinos fans know about this :)

Irvine: Piaggio, SeaBirds, Flavor Rush


My sister Becky is helping me out by being my weekly guest blogger.  Due to my busy schedule, I'm not able to attend the Teller lot on Wednesdays and she volunteered to provide a weekly report. 


In addition to the "regular trucks", the guest trucks at this week's Teller Lot were Komodo, Tropical Shave Ice, Chunk-N-Chip, Rancho A Gogo and Flavor Rush. 

Barcelona onthego was one of the very first gourmet food truck I ever tried. I liked his empanadas so much, I convinced my husband to take me to Argentina for the sake of doing “culinary research" so I can determine if there were differences in the Argentine empanadas. (Hey, it worked!)

Now, if I were to close my eyes and was told to pick a gourmet food truck empanadas from an Argentine empanadas , it would be difficult for me to tell the difference.  It was comforting to know that I didn’t need to sit 12+ hours on a plane to find empanadas, when I had one here in Orange County.  

Today I felt like Barcelona onthego's empanadas and was sad to discover that he stopped serving them several months ago.  I didn’t realize just how long ago I last had an empanada.

Fortunately, Piaggioonwheels kept them on their menu and I’m confident they won't be taking them off the menu any time soon. Four people waiting in line ahead of me all ordered at least one empanada with their meal, and when it was my turn, I ordered one of each (chicken and caprese).

My boss was feeling particularly healthy today, so she went to Sea Birds for the Blackened tofu caesar salad with truck made croutons, and "the Bella", a portabella mushroom sandwich on sourdough. 

My co-worker decided to try Flavor Rush (@Flavorrushtruck) and ordered the Mermaid’s Delight, which were 3 scallop/abalone croquettes. The menu noted this item was “limited supply” and they weren’t kidding. They were sold out before noon. In addition to that, she also ordered tilapia tacos and the truffle fries (fries not pictured).

Los Alamitos: the Lime Truck, Chomp chomp truck

I almost forgot today was Tuesday, since yesterday was President's Day. Anyhoo, Tuesday means Los Alamitos Din Din A Go Go night.

The Lime Truck posted they were serving a Duroc pork flat iron steak. It's always my go-to meal at the Lime Truck when they offer pork. Since the pork is made to order, I went to the Chompchomptruck for the Tofu Satay.... sort of an appetizer before the grand meal.

San Diego: Devilicious Food Truck

The Devilicious "Yummies"
The Truffle Tots
Chicken Pot Pie Yummies
Corn Chowder
Corned beef & Grilled Cheese
 
Today is Presidents Day and I noticed that Devilicious Truck (@deviliciousfood) was rolling in San Diego for lunch.

The hour and a half drive from Orange County was simply beautiful, and I found the truck at High Bluff near Del Mar, which is their usual Monday stop.

I ordered their special of the day, the Chicken Pot Pie "Yummies" , the soup of the day (Corn chowder), and the Truffle Tots.

While dining on my food, the gal made her son a Corned Beef & Grilled Cheese sandwich. I'm not sure if that is a menu item, but it looked tasty.

Presidents Day Lunch Trucks at Best Buy Fullerton

North Hollywood: The Yummy One, Jersey Grub, Canters, Lake Street Creamery

The Yummy One
BimBimBap from the Yummy One
Bulgogi Rice Bowl
 The Jersey Grub
Sweet Potato fries from The Jersey Grub
 The Fat Darrell (below)
 
Cold Hot Cocoa from the Lake Street Creamery
Corned Beef on Rye from Canter's
Karen and I went to see a matinee of "The King's Speech" and wanted something to eat afterward. On Twitter we noticed food trucks at The Other Door in North Hollywood.
It took about an hour to get there from Anaheim and we started at The Yummy One with Karen picking the Bimbimbap and me with a Bulgogi Rice Bowl.

While waiting for our food, I spotted a guy at the Jersey Grub ordering sweet potato fries and a Fat Darrell, which looked massive and messy!

After eating our Yummy meal, Karen went to Lake Street Creamery for a scoop of the cold hot cocoa, which is basically really good chocolate ice cream. I stopped at Canters and picked up a Corned Beef sandwich on rye to have for dinner.
