Joey was brilliant and bought tickets on-line the night before. The longest line was the one to buy tickets. The weather was in the high 80's. It was so hot that I had to remove a layer from Lou's outfit.
So our first food adventure was a Reindeer sausage hot dog. Yes reindeer. The dude even said "Merry Christmas" when he handed Joey the dog. It was very flavorful and super yummy. Joey opted for the cream cheese and grilled onions as a topping. Good call Babe.
The next stop was the "Dos Chinos" truck. A Latin Asian Fusion food. There was a lot of fusion going on. I loved the colors of this truck and it was my turn to pick something to eat.
I went with the whiteboard special of "Habanero Chocolate Orange Chicken" Tacos.
The sauce was as good as it sounds. The chicken was not so great. It was a take on Chinese orange chicken but it was too fried and too crunchy. But the sauce was super yummy. Like a mole sauce.
Next stop was Phi's choice. Of course she is not quite as adventurous as her parents so she went with the Tornado Potato truck.
Here she is the the original Tornado with no spices. She is a plain Jane like that. This was a bit greasy but the execution was adorable.
What I love about food trucks is the creativity that goes into naming the trucks!

Our next stop was to the winners of the Food Network Food Truck Race, Grill 'Em All. This was the longest line, but Joey waited while the girls and I sat in the shade. It was really hot.
After much thought Joey went with the "Waste Em' All" burger. Green chilis, pepper jack cheese and beer soaked onions. Yes beer soaked.
Another cute name and logo. Ice Ice Shavie!
And on to desserts!
First we stopped at Mustache Mike's for a chocolate Italian Ice for The Phi. Of course Joey was a hit. He is a hit anytime mustaches and beards are concerned. The guy who served us asked to take Joey's picture with the italian ice. I am sure he will be the new spokesperson.
I was a bit skeptical about ice and chocolate but this was super tasty. So much so that The Phi (with help from Lou) ate the whole thing.
The last food stop was to Cool Haus. Am ice cream truck. An ice cream truck with a kick. Some of the flavors are....
Joey chose the Snickerdoodle cookie with..... wait for it....................
Brown Butter and Bacon ice cream.
It was spectacular!!!! So freakin good!
|Lou pretty much the whole time. Just keeping her spoon close and always ready to eat.|
