SUNDAYS: North Hollywood Femme Festivale
Pomona: TapaBoy, Sweets truck, Tropical Shave Ice, Vizzi Truck
|Vintage Renewal in Pomona|
|Tocino Bowl from TapaBoy|
|Not your average truck food…|
|Always a treat… Tropical Shave Ice|
|Gourmet Ding Dong from Sweets Truck|
After we left Blackmarket Bakery, we went to the D-Rinks/ Anaheim Ice to catch the Servite vs Rancho Santa Margarita High School hockey game.
The game ended at 3:30, and we originally were going to attend the Anaheim Art Walk. However, that wasn’t starting until 6: 30, and I didn’t want to hang around 3 hours for food trucks.
We started driving around and saw that Tropical Shave Ice was at Vintage Renewal in Pomona, about 45 minutes from Anaheim.
Martin and I shared a Tocino bowl from TapaboyLA, then I ordered the Lobster Risotto from Vizzitruck.
Vizzi only makes 2 orders of Risotto per day because of the high price (it’s a $24 item), and I didn’t realize how lucky I was. Since the risotto is cooked to order, I decided to have dessert first at Tropical Shave Ice, and Martin went to the Sweets Truck and had the Gourmet Ding Dong.
Irvine: Piaggioonwheels & Dogzilla at the Blackmarket Bakery
|Pulled pork & Argentine skirt steak taco|
|Empenadas w/ the Blackmarket Bakery tart|
|Dessert samples from The Blackmarket Bakery|
The Blackmarket Bakery hosts an open house throughout the year to promote their scrumptious baked good, cakes and other creations.
Today they also invited food trucks Piaggioonwheels and Dogzilla in the celebration. I went to Piaggio for lunch and ordered a pulled pork taco, an Argentine steak taco, and Caprese (mozzarella, basil, tomatoes) empenadas.
Meanwhile, Martin went to Dogzilla and ordered the namesake, The Dogzilla.
While waiting for my food, Blackmarket was letting the patrons try their pastries. I was able to get a lemon tart, a white cake with italian buttercreme, and a chocolate cake with italian buttercreme.
Today, Anaheim Art Walk
While getting my coffee, the barista asked Martin if we were going to the Anaheim Art Walk. My first thought was, huh? I missed that?
Anyway, tonight there’s a truck gathering at downtown Anaheim from 5-11 pm.
