Irvine/ Costa Mesa: Louks to go, Flying Pig

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 skewer & Grape leaves

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…
