I attended the very first South Bay Food Fest today. I’ll admit that I was a little apprehensive at how the event would be considering the craziness that was the first LA Food Truck Fest. I was relieved to find that once I entered the Home Depot Center, it was very organized and mellow. Yes the food trucks all had their far share of lines but nothing too crazy. It also helped that I got there when they first opened.
Into the jaws of the roaming hunger….
I got chased by a man on stilts…
When the coast was finally clear from the crazy man on stilts, I got a tasty fish taco from the Slap Fish Truck.
So many old friends were in attendance.
Jogasaki Sushi Burrito & Truck Norris across the way
Some vendors were there
as well as local restaurants
But I however was there for the food trucks. I’m so glad I’ve been to the ADM Eat Fleet & South Bay Din Din A Go Go so I could narrow my options at the food fest.
So I had a delicious shrimp & octopus handroll from the Temaki truck, that I need to follow on Twitter cuz I’d like to try it again.
And I finally got to try the Nom Nom Truck with their tasty pork taco & a refreshing watermelon basil lemonade.
My final stop was Kogi BBQ, the grand daddy of them all. They opened late & I waited 10 mins for them just to open up but it was totally worth it. The staff teased me for waiting in line for just a single taco but I had to pace myself.
I love that the South Bay is finally getting food truck love. Eager to see what the next year has in store!
I will be reviewing each truck I sampled today so keep your eye out for my Follow That Food Truck series. Did you go to the food fest? What was your favorite truck?
