Stop 2: The Lime Truck is in Salt Lake City

We were in Fullerton  for the “Too Fat, Too Furious” food gathering, when I asked my friends if they’d consider driving to Salt Lake City with me to support the Lime Truck for the Great Food Truck Race. Hey, It was only a 10 hour drive! Unfortunately my friends declined, so I tossed a change of clothes, my dog Lulu, and headed out with Martin.

We stopped at Cedar City, UT around 3 am, spent the night at a Comfort Inn (very nice hotel!) and made it to Salt Lake City at 2:30pm the next day.

The Lime Truck was at the Petsmart Super Pet Adoption and had a fantastic VEGAN & VEGETARIAN menu (yes, as in no meat!).  When we got to the truck, Jason first laughed at seeing us, and they laughed at his meatless menu.   He said they only had $100 to work with on this challenge.

I heard other trucks were running out of food…. not solely because their food was great, but because they didn’t have much to start with.  I’m guessing they had to run out and get more food to make, while The Lime Truck was able to stretch their money using vegetarian food.

We didn’t get to spend much time at SLC.  After ordering our food, we went to visit the Temple, and turned around… back toward the OC.

Driving from the OC to Salt Lake City: 10 hrs, 55 min.
Helping the Lime Truck … Priceless!
