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 there! AND it's important to make a reservation before coming in because Kabuto is a very …

Japan Trip '16: Kanazawa and Tokyo

Continuing on from my last post, Japan Trip '16: Osaka, when we left Osaka, we travelled up north to Kanazawa then travelled to Tokyo where we stayed for the remainder of our trip.

We made a stop at Kyoto to do some sightseeing and snacked from bento boxes before we went on our trek:


The Japanese make cute stuff out of everything.  Yes, even food.  Kawaii desu ne:


After a long walk seeing the Arashiyama Bamboo Groove, we saw Taiyaki for the first time!  This fluffy fish-shaped cake is made out pancake or waffle batter and is usually filled with green tea, custard, or red bean paste (from sweetened adzuki beans) as seen here:


Hacchoya was the first restaurant we ate at when we arrived in Kanazawa.  This was a very nice and chic izakaya (Japanese tavern).  When we arrived it was crowded with business people dining and had a smoky atmosphere.  I hate smoke, but it won't stop me from trying new foods!  Other than eating, be sure to try the local sakes that Hacchoya has to offer.  He…

Elixir

When I heard that my friends wanted to meet up at the new local lounge, Elixir to watch a football game, I assumed this place would be like some neighborhood bars - a lot of drinks, but with subpar food... I was completely wrong!  Elixir had modern decor:


Interesting drinks:

And foods that are made in-house including the breads, and their meats are never frozen:

If you're looking for a different bar to watch a sports game, I recommend going to Elixir!  This lounge has a nice, chill atmosphere.  Also, their Happy Hour Specials have a lot to offer (there are new items that aren't in their site yet).
