Granada Hills Grubfest 06.21.2013

1

It’s not often that I document my visit to the two blocks of food truck heaven that’s happening in Granada Hills every Friday night. I know I have been MIA from blogging and I thought why not make a comeback of sorts starting with a regular event such as this, right?  Here it goes…

Something new that I haven’t seen the last time I was there was the signs. Finally this thing now has an official name.

Cousins Maine Lobster Truck

We’ve never tried this truck before and since we (meaning my kids and myself) love seafood, it seems like a good choice to try out and we weren’t disappointed.

Line was manageable but they kept it flowing with an efficiency of the armed forces. When paying with a card, you have your choice to add tip with a choice of 15%, 20%, custom or no tip. Their system does not look like that of the square reader but it sure is cool. Takes the guess work our of everything. Since they have more than one person working the griddle, we have our food in the pick up window within 2 minutes.

Connecticut Lobster Roll

The Connecticut Lobster Roll is Maine lobster, served warm with butter and lemon on a New England roll. You can easily tell the lobster was fresh, supple and juicy. Just has the right amount of lemon butter not drenched in it. There’s actually more lobster meat in relation to the roll.  Love it!

Maine Lobster Roll

The Maine Lobster Roll on the other hand is served chilled with a touch of mayo on a New England roll. I want to say this is my favorite but then I also like the warm version. So let’s just say I like them both. Again, just a touch of mayo so it did not overwhelm the lobster meat. Really, it boils down to preference whether you like your savory food warm or cold. Both are excellent choice.

New England Clam Chowder

We got a bowl of New England Clam Chowder to share. It was creamy and hearty. You can definitely chew on the clam meat in the soup amongst the potatoes. I’m not a potatoes kind of person so I left the potato eating to my kids but I enjoyed it very much.

Now, after trying out a new truck we were all ready for some comfort food. Meaning, the same two trucks we always end up with whenever we are there.

The Grilled Cheese Truck

At The Grilled Cheese Truck the kids got the Cheesy Mac and Rib Melt and the Brie Melt (on wheat).

Jogasaki Burrito

And for the adults, there’s the King Crab and Lobster Salad Sushi Burrito from Jogasaki Burrito.

And that wraps up our Friday night food crawl at the Granada Hills Grubfest. I’m actually quite excited to come back and have food from a never-before-tried food truck.

I’d say it would be an amazing weekend spent if you have both gourmet food trucks and holiday shopping on the same day at the same place. Awesome, right? Yes, and it’s happening in Sierra Madre.

wonderfully hot day at the Sierra Madre Gourmet Food Truck Rally

Sierra Madre Memorial Park

The sight that greeted me as I arrived at the Sierra Madre Memorial Park was precious. The sight of friends and family enjoying food truck grub definitely warms my heart. Despite the scorching 99 degree weather, the Sierra Madre community definitely came out to support the fundraiser (for the Sierra Madre Chamber of Commerce and the Sierra Madre Rose Float Association). I wasn’t in town for the first one but am I glad I’m around for this one.

Check out the lineup of food trucks…

Was it worth braving the scorching weather? Yes, it was. And I’m glad I came.

Sierra Madre Gourmet Food Truck Rally Part 2

1

I’ve blogged previously about the first food truck rally at Sierra Madre (read about it HERE) but due to family obligations I wasn’t able to go. I heard TRUCK NORRIS  was a sold out hit *beaming*. So I am not about to let part 2 pass without attending and I hope you attend as well…it’s all for a good cause, namely, the Sierra Madre Chamber of Commerce and the Sierra Madre Rose Float Association.

Food Truck Army, the event’s organizer, has done another excellent job at the GFT lineup. (click to be redirected to the food truck’s website)
