The San Diego Food Truck scene is starting to boom. The 57 Degrees Wine Bar had their second gathering and I drove down with Linda and Karen to check it out.

We arrived early, which was a smart move.  Most of the trucks sold out of food within the first two hours of the event. 

I took pictures of most of the trucks in attendance, and matched up the food we tried.

March 19-20: Food Truck Festival in Redondo Beach

Harbor hosts food truck festival

A festival of food trucks will arrive in King Harbor this weekend.
If you build it, they will come. If you tear it down, they will still come.
The site of several former restaurants in King Harbor – most recently Valencia – will host a festival of food trucks over four upcoming weekends prior to its demolition later this spring as the future home of the boutique Shade Hotel.
The Food Truck Fest and FUNdraiser, organized by former Hermosa Councilman (and current Barbie Q food truck operator) John Bowler, with Shade owner Mike Zislis, will feature a variety of cuisines and benefit the Redondo Union High School Associated Student Body.
Bowler said Zislis wanted to find a way to give back to the community while utilizing the currently vacant site.
“Mike has got a lot of class and understands community,” Bowler said. “This all dovetails nicely as a win-win all the way around – the schools get some money and the community gets food trucks, which is a bit of a rarity in the South Bay.”
Bowler said there will be off street parking available. “Plus everyone bikes and skates and walks and staggers in that area,” he said. “One of the great things in the South Bay is everything you need is within staggering distance…It’s one of the signs of an enlightened community.”
Hours are 11 a.m. until 8 p.m. the weekends of Feb. 12 and 13, Feb. 19 and 20, March 19 and 20, and April 2 and 3.
Trucks featured include Barbie’s Q, Rosa’s Bella Cocina, No Reservations Catering, Kabob and Roll, Tasty Meat, India Jones, Fishlips, Shrimp Pimp, Bera’s Custom Cheese Steaks, Cool Haus, Babie’s Bad Ass Burgers, and Hungry Nomad. ER
