A Bite Truck rolls into Fullerton

Orange County's newest Gourmet Food truck, a Bite Truck, was at the Best Buy in Fullerton on Friday.  They're still in the process of wrapping their truck, and unfortunately blended in with the crowd. 

I recognized Chef Keba and asked for a recommendation.  He replied their two most popular items are the Classic Bite (marinated filet mignon) over fries and the messy, but delicious Sassy Bite (chicken tikka masala). 

In 2003, Keba and Christna Parker started catering company "A Bite to Remember" before launching A Bite Truck.

If his name sounds familiar, Chef Keba is not new to the Gourmet Food truck community, having worked with two of Orange County's award-winning gourmet food trucks  Barcelona on the Go (2010 Winner of the Best New Age Truck of the Year)  and The Lime Truck (winner of the  The Great Food Truck Race, season 2).

New LA GFT (@ReubenTruck) looking to launch this summer



The Reuben Truck wants to launch this summer and would like help from the LA GFT foodies.

Hailing from Pittsburgh, PA, owner Jeff Wedner wants to "kick start" his dream. Click here for more information.

What is a reuben sandwich and what's on it??
Here are some more details regarding my signature sandwich and what will be served on The Reuben Truck.  A traditional reuben is sliced corned beef brisket piled high, melted swiss cheese, sauerkraut and russian dressing on grilled rye bread. 
They also serve a twist on the Reuben called the Rachel, it features homemade cole slaw instead of sauerkraut.

May 25-27: Great Food Truck Race in Fayetteville, Arkansas

Tyler tweeted the next stop is Fayetteville, AR. If you have a suggestion where food trucks can sell food, pls tweet using #greatfoodtruckrace

The Fayetteville local media have jumped on the news the GFTR is in town. Here's a link to a story

http://www.fayettevilleflyer.com/2012/05/22/food-networks-the-great-food-truck-race-to-film-in-fayetteville/

Their exact arrival time in Fayetteville depends on their travel schedule, but officials from Ozark Natural Foods have been told to expect them in the store this weekend. The Fayetteville Farmers’ Market on Saturday is also a likely place to spot reality show contestants on Saturday.

May 25: Food Truck Mamma's Grizzly Grub was spotted at U of A's stadium.  Not sure if they were just filming a challenge or selling food.

#GreatFoodTruckRace & trucks selling @ @ Dickson tmrw Sat 8am-2pm & Sun!


Looks like this year's contestants really like Sam's Club. They're at S.C. again!

Also, @LauraNativo tweeted the trucks should be selling food TONIGHT (Friday) on Dickson Street.   I'm not sure how long the street is, but check over by the Farmers Market, or I am sure you can't miss FIVE food trucks!  Update:  Tyler called the trucks and shut them down for the night.

Fayetteville flyer is posting all news at a central post.  Check this link as well as twitter.



Here's some food tweets!
