I finally got the chance to try out new food truck Flippin’ Yolk. When I first heard about them, I thought what a brilliantly apt name.
According to their Facebook Page, they aim to…
Bringing Flippin authentic Filipino flavors with an American/Mexican twist to your neighborhood.
Did they do that? They definitely did. Plus their rice portion is on the larger side for those used to a lot of rice. And for those of us who loves Filipino food with a passion knows that Filipino food is best enjoyed with piping hot rice (can be plain white or garlic depending on your preference).
Let’s look at a little bit of their history…
Flippin’ Yolk was founded by four friends working in hospitality whose goal was to share Filipino cuisine to their local communities. Four of them decided to work on their dream of owning a food truck to contribute to the revolution of having authentic Pinoy food in SoCal with their twist on one of the famous Filipino dishes”Tapsilog” (TAPA-marinated beef, SINANGAG-garlic rice, and ITLOG-fried egg).

Food is overall good. I’m not much of a soft taco kind of person but my daughter loves them and she loved her tapa tacos. The Silogs were great in general. I love that the amount of rice they have in one order is actually substantial even for those who are voracious rice eaters. The Tocino definitely looks and tastes homemade. I love that it’s not too sweet. I also like their Longanisa as it is skinless and tasted pretty good. My favorite would have to be the Chicken Adobo because it has depth of flavorful, kinda like a 2 day old adobo which I actually prefer over the freshly cooked one as the meat has been sitting in its own sauce and is more flavorful that way. Flavorwise, I would prefer a more vinegar-y kind of adobo but then adobo is pretty much is cooked based on the preference of the person eating it. The Deep Fried Leche Flan is muy delicioso.
It was a really good dinner and I’m so glad we had Flippin Yolk. I would definitely go back for more.
