Fullerton: Chunknchip, Swinging Kitchen

New truck: Swinging Kitchen

Duck over risotto
Shrimp taco

Martin wanted to stop at downtown Fullerton before the Ducks game to wish his student, Josh, congratulations for getting a job at Chunknchip. As the sign on the truck suggest, we had dessert first with a Booyah.

While waking back to our car, we spotted new truck, Swinging Door on Amerige. Like most new GFTS, they were experiencing truck problems like uneven heat on the stove, missing items, and even a locked cash register.

I had a duck over risotto, and Martin ordered a medley of tacos: shrimp, chicken, and tilapia.
Good luck to the new kid!

Anaheim: Rolling sushi van

I used to go to the Anaheim Farmers market a lot, when Crepes Bonaparte and Oh For Sweets Sake were there.

Rolling sushi van is making this a monthly stop, and I forgot how much I missed the market.

Karen and I met up here when we saw the Fullerton PD broke up the Chuckwagon Stop. We both ordered our favorite tempura udon, she added tomago egg, and I added the lobster taco. I took a sashimi salad home for Martin.

Anaheim: The OC Food Truck

The "Hip Hugger": tomatoes, avocado, spinach, mozzarella and a herb spread
Bacon tempura (without the siracha sauce)
Inside the bacon tempura
It's another Ducks game night, and Noble Ale Works invited The OC Food Truck to serve up the sandwiches and burgers to pair with the Noble beers.

I tried the "Hip Hugger", which is a sandwich made with tomatoes, avocado, spinach, mozzarella and a herb spread, then grilled.

I also tried a modified version of the Bacon Tempura, which bacon wrapped around spinach, pepperjack, swiss, then dropped in tempura batter. I opted out of the siracha sauce, which is why it looks so.... brown and plain.

Irvine: Rolling Sushi Van



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. 


This week's guest trucks, aside from the usual five (BOTG, Piaggio, LimeTruck, Dos Chinos, Seabirds) were Lee’s Philly and Oh For Sweet’s Sake. 

One of many great things about living in Southern California is the variety of authentic Asian cuisine. Unfortunately, whenever I travel to Europe, asian cuisine in countries such as Italy, France and Spain pales in comparison.  

I'm heading out on vacation and will be spending the next few weeks in Italy.  I was super excited when Rolling Sushi Van tweeted that they would be at the Teller today, so I could get my last minute Asian food fix!

My co-workers and I all ordered their sashimi salad. My boss also ordered the Salmon Cali roll and I also ordered a shrimp tempura hand roll. 


Wow, picnic tables now at the Teller Lot!

Lime truck keeps raising the bar with new food items. Today's plated special was karobuta pork bellies with sauteed brussels sprouts, carrots with a grain mustard demi glace.

Martin picked up the bacon tempura roll from The OC Food Truck, and Johnny got the bacon wrapped hot dogs from Piaggio.

I'm not sure what Karen had for dinner, but she ended her evening with Tropical Shave Ice... So ono!

Its been a long time since I've been to OC GREAT PARK for brunch. When I found out it's not part of MFP, I couldn't wait to return.

At Barcelona, I ordered the Artichoke with Sun dried tomatoes Frittata, and Martin got the Catalan sausage sandwich.

While waiting for the food, Martin dashed over to Crepes bonaparte to get a Strawberry & Banana in a chocolate battered crepe.

For dessert we tried the new yogurt from Rolling sushi van. They had chocolate and/or vanilla with optional toppings like mini m & m, sprinkles, gummy bears and sour worms.

There are also vendors at the Farmers Market which are not food trucks. Tj Wood Fire pizza was one of them, and I tried their Margharita.

Fullerton: Spudrunners, Rolling Sushi Van

Potato pancakes from Spudrunners
Chili with toasted garlic bread from Spudrunners
Egg sushi
Soft shell crab (Spider roll) from Rolling Sushi
 
Kobe Beef salad
Today there were many food trucks that were out at regular gatherings and charity festivals. Unfortunately, I had errands to do, including taking Lulu to the S-paw for a bath & groom.

Luckily, for dinner two trucks were rolling to the Bootleggers Brewery in Fullerton, which is a few minutes from my place. We braved the icy cold night for Spudrunners and Rolling Sushi Van.

At Spudrunners, I ordered the special of the day: potato pancakes, and Martin ordered the chili to warm up.

At Rolling Sushi, Karen picked up her usual tempera udon (not pictured) and added tomago (sweet egg) sushi. I tried the Spider Roll, which is made with soft shell crab, and Martin and I shared the Kobe beef salad.
