Fullerton: the Flip Truck, Chompchomptruck

the Kalola from the Flip Truck

The Sloppy Joe from Chomp Chomp
Hibiscus Rose Water w/ Lychee
S’mores from Chomp Chomp
Kaya French Toast
Sling Wings

We were driving through Downtown Fullerton and spotted the Flip Truck and Chompchomptruck.

I’ve been following Flip Truck since they’ve rolled, but have never tried them until tonight. I tried the Kalola, which is a ground Ahi Tuna slider, served rare, and it came with fries.

Martin went to Chompchomptruck, and ordered the Sloppy Joe, and I picked up the Hibiscus Rose water with lychee drink.

While waiting at the truck, we watched new foodies order other food, like the Kaya French Toast, the Singapore S’more, and the Sling Wings.
