South Point Gourmet Food Truck Fest

Earlier this month I went to the South Point Gourmet Food Truck Fest.  Non-food wise, the lot where this food truck fest was located at was s p a c i o u s, I loved it!  There were twenty food trucks there (many of them were from California).  The lucky food trucks I tried foods from were Calbi Fusion Tacos|Burritos, Pie 'n Burger, Longboards Ice Cream, Ludo Truck, and Nom Nom Truck.

@ Calbi - This food truck sells Korean BBQ style tacos, burritos, and quesadillas aka "KoMex" food.  Being an adventurous eater, I tried the Kim Chee Quesadillas with a house dipping sauce on the side.  Never would I think of combining kim chee, cheese, and a tortilla together!  The quesadillas were quite pleasant.  I only wish that the quesadillas or the sauce had more spices added to them:



Front- Tofu Tacos, Back- Kim Chee Quesadillas

@ Pie 'n Burger - I got a pie, but also got a hot dog instead of a burger... I know I should've got a burger (hence their name), but I was really craving a hot dog!:



Foot Long Hot Dog topped w/ sauteed onions, yumm!

Pecan Homemade Pie- This pie tasted homemade indeed


@ Ludo Truck - I sampled my friend's Honey-Garlic Glazed Chicken Wings... OMG the marinade drenched in the chicken wing was the best I ever had!  There was a lot of honey in it for sure, but all the spices and sauces that blended with it tasted like heaven.  I wish I could snag that recipe!

@ Chairman Bao Food Truck - This was my fiancé's bao.  He said the dough tasted great and that it was different from the other baos/steamed buns he's had.  Maybe its the California water that makes the dough taste so good:


@ Longboards Ice Cream - I think this was the first frozen banana I had. It was a delightful dessert!  The toppings I chose were dark chocolate, shredded coconut, and peanuts:


@ Nom Nom Truck - This food truck sells Asian style food including Vietnamese sandwiches called bánh mì.  This was also my first time trying these sandwiches, so glad I got to try them from this food truck. The bread was perfectly toasted, the ingredients were fresh, and the sauce was amazing.  When I go back to San Franciso, I'll visit this Nom Nom Truck pronto!

Epic line to the Nom Nom truck, a 40+ minute wait.
This wait was really worth it!

How cute

We also got Vegetarian Tofu Tacos (thanks again Aleina!)

I kind of regret not going to the other food trucks, especially when they had interesting items (like the Tornado Potato Truck)!  But its ok, I'm still satisfied with the food trucks I went to and the event will be back anyways.  If anyone goes to the next food truck fest on November 5th, bring your family and/or friends with you!  Hopefully the more people you're with the more different foods you can sample from ;) Here's the list of trucks that will come later this year: Participating Trucks.

Kabuto

Eating at  Kabuto  was a wonderful dining and learning experience for my fiance and I.  If you are truly a sushi / Japanese food  enthusiast and am willing to pay $$$ for what you get, you must come to Kabuto! We each ordered some à la carte items and the Nigiri Omakase , which includes an appetizer, ten pieces of sushi nigiri, hand roll, and dessert.  Our chef was the general manager, he's such a knowledgeable man!  He told us about the distinctive features of each fish, what his job entails, and funny stories.  I'm so glad he was our chef! Since we sat at the bar, we were up close to see how our sushi chef worked.  He wasn't in a rush and we got to see the artistic side of how sushi is made. This made me appreciate my experience at Kabuto much more:                    Last note : Finding this place was also a learning experience for us, you may get aggravated looking for it in the strip mall... Kabuto is th

Stockholm Trip '17

Over a month ago, my husband and I embarked on our first trip to Europe!!! We were there for a couple weeks and spent our time exploring the capital cities of Norway, Denmark, and Sweden.  The two things I found most captivating was the art, especially the architecture, and the food!  Our trip started in Oslo, Norway and Copenhagen, Denmark (check out the links at the end of the post for more details) and ended our Euro trip in Stockholm, Sweden: AB Café Never in my whole life did I eat pastries and drink coffee every morning until I arrived in Europe! A lot of pastries I had were hearty which left me wanting to have at least one daily.  In the neighborhood near where we were staying at was  AB Café .  This is a small, cozy cafe where you can have a small bite to eat and drink before you start your day.  Pictured below is their Key Lime Sandwich, latte, and a bullar (sweet bun).  It was a nice fika !
