Camping trips and Hollywood Bowl concerts nurtured my love of eating good food outdoors. California has beautiful weather, fresh ingredients and bold chefs.
Most people have a craving to combine all those elements at food truck events.
A few weeks ago, we discovered mobile food heaven in Palo Alto at Edgewood Eats.
We lined up at different food trucks for our entrees. Next, we claimed a patch of asphalt with our camping chairs.
Then I scarfed down this incredible Maine lobster roll from the Shack Mobile.
Like other food truck events, Edgewood Eats features an assorted collection of food genres. Indian and Asian-fusion sandwiches share the stage with BBQ, noodles and cupcakes. Edgewood Eats opens for business only on Monday nights.
My hubby tried two different pulled pork sliders from Armadillo Willy’s. There was a traditional Texas BBQ version and the other one was “Island” style with mango pieces. Both were tasty.
On another weekend, I braved large crowds and 90-degree weather to sample the food at the Temescal Street Fair in Oakland. The shrimp ceviche was nice and refreshing. However, the taco booth bummed me out when they ran out of fish tacos.
There are times when short rib taco cravings hit me in the gut. It goes back to my first experience with a Kogi BBQ truck in Rowland Heights.
So, I’ve been obsessed with finding a Bay Area equivalent. I found it at the Mogo BBQ truck parked outside of the Capcom offices. We ordered lunch at the truck and did a picnic at Miramar Beach in Half Moon Bay.
We had a fantastic view of the Pacific Ocean as I enjoyed my short rib tacos.
I also thought the cheese and spicy kimichi action worked in this quesadilla.
