Westside Foodtruck Central 02.14.2011


It’s Valentine’s Day but it’s also Monday Night which only means it’s din-din time at Westside Foodtruck Central over at Overland and Washington. Truck lineup was varied and interesting and me and the family had yummy-licious dinner πŸ™‚

Here are the trucks that were there:

India Jones Chow Truck

Grill Em All

Lee's Philly

Tapa Boy

Fishlips Sushi

Ludo Truck

Barbies Q

Boba Truck

Komodo Truck

So, our Valentine’s Day dinner may not have been your typical over the top restaurant dinner but it was still special because we spent it together over good food.

Happy Foodtrucking!!!

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…

Day 2 of Wholly Rollers’ Valley Food Truck Fest started early and it the clouds said it’s going to be a good day ( haha! at least to me it did).

is it 3 o'clock yet?

double the amount of seating!!!

We got there early so I can nab a street parking spot. When I got there a wide smile spread across my face as I saw that they doubled even tripled the seating to accommodate the anticipated number of people that’s about to descend.

flyers go on the table

close-up of the flyer

Flyers were on display on the table, a nice touch I would say as it can serve as souvenir and/or a FYI kind of thing. Nice to keep handy for those questions from friends.

Following pics are of food trucks participating in the second day of the event.

But….. guess what???? There will be another VFTF on November 12, 13 & 14. Check out their website www.whollyrollersevents.com for more info.
