What could make a festival experience even more wonderful? Good weather of course! Especially if the sun is shining and the sky is blue.
This year I had no real intentions of going, after all I've gone 3 years in a row and this time we failed to get a group together to attend. Eating in festivals is best enjoyed when sharing with friends who have the same voracious appetite as yours.
However, we were in the vicinity, running errand as usual and by 4 PM we were done with errands and have time to go check out the food. We were hungry.
Senor Sisig is a mainstay.
A line of trucks.
Was curious about the sign, but didn't inquire.
Organic, vegan, gluten free.
Small serving size so we passed.
Chop Bar was there.
Grilled cheese is always good.
See the cloudless blue sky? Wonderful isn't it?
Know your cut of meat table.
WHAT WE ATE
Every year we allot $40 for food and drinks for both of us. This year most of the food we sampled were $5 each. Normally the food items are either $5 or $3. This year I've seen a sign for churros for #2.
Our first choice was this bowl of crispy pork belly over creamy polenta ($5) from Lungomare. This one is the bomb!!!!
Breakfast sandwich, eggs, cheese, sausage ($5) from the Farmer's Wife. Really satisfying. Someone stopped us to ask where we got it. Looks as crispy and delicious as it tastes.
From Seoul on Wheels (another mainstay) we got this spicy pork rice plate ($5), simple yet very good. Anyone would like this. Has got to be the best value.
Then we spotted Whole Foods Market had a stall. Didn't know they have deli in their groceries.
From them we got the bison slider with fries ($5), another one with great bang for the buck. The bison was good, not gamey at all and the fries weren't bad.
See it's good for a few bites.
And from Radio Africa Kitchen.....
We got the 7 vegetable tagine with quinoa pilaf ($5). This was our attempt at eating something healthy, but this did not hit the spot for me. I love quinoa, but somehow this is too vinegary for me. Quite acidic. The hubs on the other hand thought otherwise and so he finished the whole bowl.
We didn't finish our food budget because we were too stuffed.
In parting, here are a few more of the vendors that came with their food/drinks.
