It seems that lately I have to make a sacrifice in order to eat at my favorite truck. Today, Anna and I took Corey “all the way” to Irvine to get lunch.
Nestled in one of the obscure office parks off Redhill Drive & Skypark is a place called Blackmarket Bakery. You would never know from the outside that this place sold food. They make the most amazing cakes, cookies, and pastries. They also make a pasta with wine! Truth be known, I don’t get any of those items but their Sunflower & Almond Brittle!
In the past, Piaggio on Wheels would make this location his Friday afternoon stop. Then, on August 13th, Piaggio invited a few other gourmet trucks. The property management company put their foot down and placed a temporary stop to visiting trucks.
Thanks to the efforts of Blackmarket Bakery, they convinced the managment company to allow a guest truck to visit occassionally. Now, a month later, Piaggio is back at Blackmarket, and all is right in The OC.

|Piaggio’s tofu tacos with the “pink” sauce, chimmichuri sauce,
served over chimi rice and grilled zucchinis
|The Almond-Sunflower brittle from Blackmarket Bakery
This item is vegan, as they use pure cane sugar instead of butter
