Fullerton: Rolling sushi van

Tempura Udon
Lobster Tacos
Tuna Tadaki Salad
Sashimi Salad

We were supposed to meet Karen at Noble Ale Works, but she got stuck at work. I went home and picked up Martin and we went to Rolling sushi van, who was parked near CSU Fullerton off Deerpark.

We both had Tempura Udon and Lobster taco, but I had mine non spicy. I added a Tuna Tadaki salad, while Martin ordered the Sashimi salad.

Irvine: Piaggio, SeaBirds, Flavor Rush

My sister Becky is helping me out by being my weekly guest blogger.  Due to my busy schedule, I’m not able to attend the Teller lot on Wednesdays and she volunteered to provide a weekly report. 

In addition to the “regular trucks”, the guest trucks at this week’s Teller Lot were Komodo, Tropical Shave Ice, Chunk-N-Chip, Rancho A Gogo and Flavor Rush. 

Barcelona onthego was one of the very first gourmet food truck I ever tried. I liked his empanadas so much, I convinced my husband to take me to Argentina for the sake of doing “culinary research” so I can determine if there were differences in the Argentine empanadas. (Hey, it worked!)

Now, if I were to close my eyes and was told to pick a gourmet food truck empanadas from an Argentine empanadas , it would be difficult for me to tell the difference.  It was comforting to know that I didn’t need to sit 12+ hours on a plane to find empanadas, when I had one here in Orange County.  

Today I felt like Barcelona onthego’s empanadas and was sad to discover that he stopped serving them several months ago.  I didn’t realize just how long ago I last had an empanada.

Fortunately, Piaggioonwheels kept them on their menu and I’m confident they won’t be taking them off the menu any time soon. Four people waiting in line ahead of me all ordered at least one empanada with their meal, and when it was my turn, I ordered one of each (chicken and caprese).

My boss was feeling particularly healthy today, so she went to Sea Birds for the Blackened tofu caesar salad with truck made croutons, and “the Bella”, a portabella mushroom sandwich on sourdough. 

My co-worker decided to try Flavor Rush (@Flavorrushtruck) and ordered the Mermaid’s Delight, which were 3 scallop/abalone croquettes. The menu noted this item was “limited supply” and they weren’t kidding. They were sold out before noon. In addition to that, she also ordered tilapia tacos and the truffle fries (fries not pictured).
