My normal lunch buddies were out of the office today, so I had to fend for myself. I needed a hearty lunch since I was going to the Anaheim Ducks “Fan Fest”, a season ticket holder event tonight. The only meal I would get for dinner would be a crappy hot dog and a pepsi.
I noticed that Louks to Go was closeby on Redhill. I also noticed Piaggio on Wheels, Calbi, and Dos Chinos were at the OC Fairgrounds. Originally I thought the OC Fairground was too far to drive. Well, technically it is…
I called Sheila, another coworker to do a “quick” trip to Louks. Lucky for us, the traffic gods kept the roads clear. We arrived in 10 minutes, and there was no line at Louks!

|Chicken and Beef Skewer over fries, served with side of tzatziki and lemon|
We received our order in a few minutes, and heading down Bristol, I noticed a sign that said “Fair Grounds”. Wow, the OC Fairgrounds were that close? We made a quick left, then a right, and ended up at the Costa Mesa Farmer’s Market!
Resident trucks Piaggio on Wheels and Calbi were there. Dos Chinos and Morsels couldn’t make it but there were a few new guest trucks: Dogzilla (which I had last night), Flying Pig, ChunknChip and KonaIce. I decided to try Flying Pig since its a rare OC appearance…
|Flying Pig Truck: Asian & Pacific Rim flavors w/ french technique|
|Sliders: beef & pork blend with red onion escabeche,
pickled sesame cucumber, banana mustard on a toasted sweet hawaiian bun
|Tamarind Duck taco: Duck confit with pickled red beets, toasted almonds,
radish sprouts, mandarin orange, and tamarind gravy
