Killer Lemon Ricotta Donuts from Streatery Food Truck [a - gasp - healthier food truck!]

streatery food truck1

For Food Truck Date #13, my date and I visited Friday Nights at OMCA (Oakland Museum of California), a weekly food truck party in Oakland from 5-9pm. After we did the usual food truck loop to check out all our dining options and my date said, “Do you actually like food trucks?!” we settled on the Streatery food truck for our meal. His comment led me to believe he wasn’t a huge ... read more

Seattle Biscuit Company Food Truck + Beer at Chuck’s Hop Shop

seattle biscuit company food truck

When I moved away from Seattle two years ago, I left a city with a very small food truck scene. A few food trucks would sit curbside downtown for lunch, but they were largely absent from events and festivals and not a part of my every day life. Now, two years later, the food truck scene is growing in my favorite little Pacific Northwest city, and it’s fun to come ... read more

A Three-Day Tour of Portland Breakfast Food Carts

When planning my 50 Dates trip to the City of Roses, I was incredibly excited about all the Portland breakfast food carts in the city. Breakfast is by far my favorite meal of the day, and we’re lacking breakfast food trucks in San Francisco. (BOOOO Purdue!) As previously mentioned in one of my Food Truck Bucket List posts, I also have had a semi obsession with the Fried Egg I’m in ... read more

Get Your Greek Fix On at Gyro on Wheels in SF

Gyro on Wheels in SF was the food truck the Hot Greek Grandfather and I chose for Food Truck Date #12 – he’s Greek, so of course we had to eat at a Greek food truck (I like to pair alllll my boys with the food truck that represents their heritage or favorite food). It brings all their milkshakes to my yard. Since I just got back from a little ... read more

Portland Food Cart Stories with PortlandFoodCartAdventures.com

“Food cart owners represent the best of the American Dream – bootstrapping their way to a better life,” said Steven Shomler, self-proclaimed food cart fan. Steven becomes a little emotional as he tells me the story of Nong – of the infamous Nong’s Khao Mon Gai food cart – and her dream to see her sauce in stores someday, which came true for her last fall. “The idea of people ... read more

Well, do be honest, I’m more of a burrito girl (GIRTH, I need some GIRTH), but I feel like half the world could exist solely on tacos, if given the opportunity. The taco scene in San Francisco is almost talked about more than Karl the Fog - from Tacolicious and Nick’s Crispy ... read more

So Far Koja Kitchen Has My Vote for Best Food Truck in San Francisco

koja-kitchen-korean-chicken-bbq

I first tried Koja Kitchen‘s “Korean-Japanese reinvented” on Food Truck Date #10 and then again at TruckStop SF while on lunch at work, and now it’s my favorite food truck in San Francisco to track down. Koja Kitchen serves these beyond fantastic Korean barbecue “burgers.” Not only is the bbq meat tender and super tasty, but then they throw sesame vinaigrette lettuce and a pineapple ring on top (my favorite combo ever is ... read more

A Twist on Chinese Hum Bao at The Chairman Bao Food Truck

In junior high I used to regularly take the bus with my best friend from our safe, strip-malled suburb of ticky tacky houses to downtown Seattle. We’d rotate between Broadway Street in the neighborhood of Capitol Hill – vintage bell bottoms in thrift stores, hipster coffee shops with fancy foamed beverages, Dick’s Cheeseburgers and eccentric crossdressers with mohawks and four inch platform heels – and The Ave, the dingy main drag below ... read more

BrewTruc: San Francisco’s Brewery On Wheels [with Stoned Operators]

brewtruc sf 2

In October, I attended a “Hallotoberfest” – an urban biergarten benefit party with brews from BrewTruc and grub from Stag Dining Group. Stag is a cool culinary group that creates underground dining experiences with locally sourced cuisine, and BrewTruc is a school bus turned brewery truck, pouring home, micro and nano brews from around the Bay Area. A brewery on a truck – neato! The owners of BrewTruc certainly rocked ... read more
