3-day fest... epic!
Friday marks the first day of the Valley Food Fest organized by Wholly Rollers in Encino. And I would not miss it for the world. Speaking to Athena of Wholly Rollers, she wanted to bring this kind of event to the valley for the valley families to enjoy and not feel harassed. I can really say that it’s family friendly as I have my kids and one of them in a stroller. Falling in line is easy and I didn’t have a problem navigating with a stroller. There was enough seating as long as you don’t mind sharing the rest of the table with strangers. Luckily for me I had nice tablemates. I was able to park on the street but I found out there’s a $2 parking right next door. Crowd is mostly made up of families which is always nice to see. There’s something for each member of the family.
food trucks are lined up on both sides of the lot with tables and chairs lined up in the middle... the best set-up I've seen... people can line up in front of the truck without getting mixed up with the line from the neighboring trucks
Let me do the tour beginning from the entrance…
Border Grill Truck - they never opened due to truck troubles which is a shame because I was in the mood for the corn tamal 😦 hopefully they will be back Saturday.
White Rabbit Truck
Greenz on Wheels
The Greasy Wiener
Tango Mango for some really good italian ice
The Munchie Machine
B wanted to get dinner from Tapa Boy and this is what she got…

Aren’t you hungry from looking at all these food? Here’s some screenshots from Wholly Rollers‘ site about the event and truck line up….
So what are you waiting for? Two more days left, plenty of time, plan accordingly, don’t harass people for parking spots and bring a big appetite…
HAPPY FOODTRUCKING IN THE SFV!!!
