|DanDanBBQ cheesesteak sandwich|
The new Sprint 4g wireless system was being launched today and they kicked it off with free Wifi & food at 4 locations in LA & OC.
The Fast Food Maven posted that one location was at the Oc Register with lunch provided by Dan Dan bbq.
Free food? Sure! We had a choice of two tacos or a bulgogi cheesesteak sandwich. I opted for the latter and a bottled water.

|Smoked duck w/ creamed corn and fries|
|Pulled pork sliders with creamed corn|
|Tri tip with bleu cheese slaw & chicken with bbq slaw sliders|
There’s one way to get the husband to the mall… Feed him first. Lucky for me there’s a food truck gathering at the SoCo in Costa Mesa. Today Chompchomp, Calbi, Barcelona, Morsels, & Shortstop bbq were there.
It was a sunny day, but just enough chill to order a lentil & ham soup from Barcelona.
I also got the limited Duck plate (sans sauce) plus 2 sides from Shortstop, leaving me too full to grab anything else… Well except a fresh baked cookie from Morsels.
Martin got his usual sliders from Shortstop: tri-tip, chicken & pork.

It’s the day before Thanksgiving and also the Wednesday OC DIN DIN A GO GO in Irvine.
Tonight’s trucks were resident gfts Lomo, Piaggio, Tropical, Dos Chinos and Lime Truck. The guest trucks were Ahn-Joo korean snack truck, Chunk n Chip, and Chompchomp.
Piaggio arrived with some added color wrap, which made the truck look very nice.
For dinner I ordered the Ahn-Joo fried chicken, skirt steak taco from Piaggio, and the pork belly “bolsa” taco from Dos Chinos. On my way out, I picked up the Tortilla Soup from the Lime Truck so I’ll have something while I make the Thanksgiving dinner tomorrow.
|Vietnamese noodle soup (pho ga)|
|Morsel’s cream puff
(one of my favorites)
|Banana cream dessert shot|
|Fresh chocolate chip cookie
It was scalding hot!
Tonight the Los Al Din Din had a great line up with Lomo, Lime Truck, Vizzi Truck, and guest trucks: Takoyakitanota (the Octopus truck), Shrimp Guys, and Eat Phamish.
When we arrived not all the trucks were there. It was cold and rain was heading our way, a hot bowl of vietnamese noodle soup (pho) was ideal. The bowl was pretty large (surprisingly) I didn’t have room to eat other items from other trucks. Well, I did leave room for my cream puff, and Karen had room for a dessert shot & a hot, fresh chocolate chip cookie, also from Morsels.
|Hainan chicken w/ rice|
|BBQ Ribs and creamed corn|
|Tri tip with fries and bbq slaw|
A few food trucks were at the Newport/Balboa farmers market. We opted to come here instead of Great Park to try The Street Hawker, a Singapore truck serving satay, noodles and rice dishes.
Karen went to the Hawker and ordered the Hainan chicken & rice, Martin got the chicken satay.
I went to Shortstopbbq for their pork ribs & cream corn. Martin also ordered a tri-tip with bbq slaw & fries.
|Potato Frittata (aka: Spanish Tortilla)|
|Argentine Steak Taco|
|Barcelona’s tri tip taco with corn salsa|
|Banana cream dessert shot|
The weather forecast said 60% chance of rain, but it did not stop us from venturing out for food at the Soco Farmers Market.
My brunch was the Potato & sun dried tomato frittata (aka Spanish Tortilla) from Barcelona onthego, and a steak taco with chimichurri from Piaggio on Wheels. Martin had the steak tacos, from Barcelona but with a corn salsa. For dessert we had a banana cream shot from Morsels Bakery Truck.
