Eat Real Festival Year 4


Eat Real Festival Year 2

Eat Real Festival Year 3

The time for food truck festival is here again. Well, last weekend really. I wasn't as enthusiastic this year, but my husband was excited enough for the both of us, and so we managed to squeeze in a visit to the festival in between activities this weekend.

Since I have covered the mission of the festival in two previous posts, see links above, I'd have to make this more of a pictorial post.

Pretty clever eh?

THE FOOD

Mouth-watering pork belly sliders from Rice, Paper, Scissors.

IMGP8749
She was selling them including the one below.

IMGP8755
This one's called pho roll. It comes in pork and beef variety, your choice.

IMGP8757
The garlic gouda mac and cheese was pretty awesome - targeting the adult palate.

IMGP8760
A whole leg of I don't know what kind of meat.

IMGP8789
Some Korean rice plate from Seoul on Wheels.

IMGP8795
Prepping the Acme Bread grilled cheese. Very good.

IMGP8806
You can never go wrong with Acme Bread.

IMGP8818
Pizza? Some sort of a bread with topping. Was too full to get this, so I just took a picture of it.

IMGP8822
I have coveted the Argentinian empanada last year so I made sure I tasted them this year. Yummy.

  1. It would be so exciting to taste all that! And the presentations are beautiful too. I see a familiar looking truck with familiar menu, and familiar faces as well. I wonder if you still miss those food in that truck, but i didn't see adobo and banana Q.

  2. I still have to run into a Pinoy food truck within driving range of my pick-up. Maybe I'm not searching diligently but I'm keeping my eyes and taste buds open. Lucky you!

  5. I love going to festival and taste different kinds of authentic food, the pho roll looks yummy :-) I've been to Jack London Square once when I had my business trip in Alameda but never had the chance to explore the place, I came there almost 9pm already :-)

  9. How fun! They had one of these last season in Ft Myers but we missed it -- now it's on my 'must-do' list for this year, if only because of the photo ops! 'Seoul Food' definitely takes my prize for best name.

  22. A fine "food" series that left me very hungry! Excellent shots of the various foods and the people who were apparently already full. :-)

    ReplyDelete
  23. Wow! Everything looks so tempting. They should have those food trucks here in the Philippines, too. Wonderful shots and thanks for sharing!

  26. The food looks appetizing. It's nice to see a Filipino food truck getting a lot of customers.

    The little dog is a touching sight. It's heartwarming to know that there are people who give handicapped dogs the opportunity to enjoy quality living.

    I agree with you this little doggie is very brave and his owner is a affectionate and loving person too.
