Stop 2: The Lime Truck is in Salt Lake City

We were in Fullerton  for the "Too Fat, Too Furious" food gathering, when I asked my friends if they'd consider driving to Salt Lake City with me to support the Lime Truck for the Great Food Truck Race. Hey, It was only a 10 hour drive! Unfortunately my friends declined, so I tossed a change of clothes, my dog Lulu, and headed out with Martin.

We stopped at Cedar City, UT around 3 am, spent the night at a Comfort Inn (very nice hotel!) and made it to Salt Lake City at 2:30pm the next day.

The Lime Truck was at the Petsmart Super Pet Adoption and had a fantastic VEGAN & VEGETARIAN menu (yes, as in no meat!).  When we got to the truck, Jason first laughed at seeing us, and they laughed at his meatless menu.   He said they only had $100 to work with on this challenge.

I heard other trucks were running out of food.... not solely because their food was great, but because they didn't have much to start with.  I'm guessing they had to run out and get more food to make, while The Lime Truck was able to stretch their money using vegetarian food.

We didn't get to spend much time at SLC.  After ordering our food, we went to visit the Temple, and turned around... back toward the OC.

Driving from the OC to Salt Lake City: 10 hrs, 55 min.
Helping the Lime Truck ... Priceless!

Cerritos: the Yummy One

Karen was chasing Crepes Bonaparte and discovered a food truck gathering at the Sam Ash in Cerritos.
The Yummy One was there and Karen got the Bi Bim Bap, Martin got the Bi Bim Rice Wrap, and I got the Bulgogi Rice Wrap.

Irvine: The Lime Truck

My sister Becky is my weekly guest blogger, reporting on food trucks from the Teller & Michelson lunch lot in Irvine, CA. 

Today was one of those beautiful, sunny days where you’d rather be anywhere but inside the office.

Due to their increase in popularity and fan following, I hadn’t been to The Lime Truck in a while because the wait in line is always so long. Today, however, I arrived a little earlier than usual and was glad to see only a handful of people in front. I love their ceviche and knew right away I had to try their ahi poke, which is fresh diced tuna with crushed macadamia nuts, avocado drizzled with a little spicy salsa, served over a bed a fresh tortilla chips.

Best of luck to the Lime Truck and Seabirds as they represent OC in second season of The Great Food Truck Race!
