Santa Ana: Piaggio on Wheels & Oh For Sweets Sake!

I was thinking about dinner when I received a “direct message” tweet from Oh For Sweets Sake, telling me that they made me a special bundt cake.  They were going to be in downtown Santa Ana on 3rd & Sycamore, about 3 blocks from my work.  I also found out that Dos Chinos was (still) there, as well as Calbi BBQ and SeaBirds. 

Those trucks didn’t tempt me but when Piaggio on Wheels posted THEY were going to be there, I decided dinner with Piaggio…

Santa Ana: Dos Chinos

It seems in the foodie truck world, our choices are feast or fail.  Last night few trucks were on the road (well, it was Monday!) and today there were a wide variety to pick from.  Barcelona on the go was off Main & Jamboree, Piaggio was a bit further south in Irvine, but Dos Chinos and CalbiBBQ were in Santa Ana.

I tried to send a text message to place my favorite order: pork bellies over rice, and texted that I would be there a little after 12:00.  Well, it is now 1 pm and I just got back. I know the food it made to order, but somehow the boys at DC needs to step up their game.  (shhh! Don’t tell them I said that, as I’ll continue to support them).  I went with a coworker who was a DC newbie, and she ordered the pork bellies and the Hollywood Taco: a thai curry chicken with a tamarind sour cream sauce.

This time the pork belly was sliced, not chopped up.
