Santa ana: Dan Dan bbq

OC Register parking lot
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.

Costa mesa: Barcelona, Shortstop bbq

Lentil & Serrano Ham soup
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.

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.

Los Alamitos: Eat Phamish, Morsels Bakery Truck

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.

Street Hawker
Hainan chicken w/ rice
Chicken Satay
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

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.
