Irvine: (OC DinDinaGoGo) White Rabbit, Morsels Bakery Truck, & Tropical Shave Ice

This week’s OC DinDin a GoGo tweeted the best line up ever:
The “resident” trucks Lomo Arigato, Tropical Shave Ice, Dos Chinos and Piaggio on Wheels were joined by The Lime Truck, Louks, White Rabbit, and a new truck Morsels Bakery (@bakerytruck).  A total of 8 trucks of were serving up food.  I say 8 (and not 9) because we never did see Louks, so I think they were a no-show.

Well, you could say “unofficial” OCDDAGG truck Kogi BBQ came to make it #9.

So, Martin picked me up from work, and we arrived at K1 about 5:45.  There was already a huge line at the White Rabbit.. about 3x’s a longer than everyone else. Lucky for us, Karen got there early and was about 5th in line, so we joined her.  The line for the White Rabbit was not just long.. it was snaking past the other trucks! Not even the popular Lime Truck or Kogi BBQ’s had a line as long. 

So, here is the White Rabbit…

Irvine: Barcelona on the Go, Lime Truck, DanDanBBQ Truck

As a government slave, we are entitled to have a lunch break.  I guess I should be happy that I get an hour to eat, versus some school districts who gives their slaves only a half hour.  The only bad part of an hour is if a food truck is in say, Irvine, and I’m in say, Santa Ana, its hard to dine and dash.  Lucky for me, my sister works across the street from where the OC Truck Summit gathers regularly on Wednesday afternoons at Teller & Michelson. 

I saw that The Lime Truck was having their Autumn Maple Pork Flat Iron, and they were going to be not only at the Teller location but at the K1 location later tonight. Hmm, should I chance it that they’ll still have food available at 5:30 pm?  Nah! Lime Truck is very popular and I did not want to risk missing out.  So, I sent a text message to my sister begging her to order me the pork, and I made my way to Irvine.

Fifteen minutes later, I arrived to find a crowd at all the trucks.  My sister had food in her hand.. and if I were smart, I should have just paid her and head back to work.  Of course, I am not that smart, and I wandered around checking out the other trucks. I  ended up getting my bacon wrapped dates and Paella croquettes from Barcelona on the Go.. which ended up costing me $8, plus 10 minutes of wait time (maybe a wee bit longer).  Lucky I got back to work at a decent time (took an hour and 10 min lunch) and gorged out in the privacy of my office.

Now, I hope I have enough room in my hollow leg for dinner tonight! I must save room for White Rabbit Truck and, of course, my Tropical shave ice!

The purpose of my trip:
Lime Truck’s pork flat iron over mashed red potatoes
Repaying my sister for getting my food by splitting an order of
