Truckit Fest Sneak Peek at Whole Foods Market Tarzana


It all started with this tweet. I thought that while it is not in my neighborhood it is close enough. I have to check out their pandesal buns that they just got.


GFTs in front of Whole Foods Market Tarzana


And to my surprise, there were 5 GFTs lined up. Why didn’t I know about this? Was their tweet RT? I did a little internet research and it looks like this is going to be one of the sneak peak Whole Foods Market is sponsoring to promote the inaugural TRUCKIT Fest at Union Station on March 6,2011.

So, let’s take a look at the GFTs that were there.


Curbside Craving




Border Grill








India Jones Chow Truck




Temaki Truck


Other GFTs scheduled to appear were Ahn Joo and Slammin Sliders. It was raining cats and dogs but people came for some tasty eats. I wish it promoted more because it’s rare that GFTs come by this area.


GFT patrons sought cover from rain to enjoy food from trucks

Femme Festivale


I saw this flyer/poster at Mandoline Grill’s blog, I think, and I thought what a nice event to support fellow females. And I made a note of the date so I can try out Canter’s Truck and Dosa Truck.

Check out pictures taken during that day…
