Costa Mesa: Piaggioonwheels, Doschinos, Tropshaveice

Today I took a newbie to the OC Fair to try an Orange County food truck. I started him off at Piaggio on wheels where we selected the Pulled Pork over chimichurri rice, the Skirt Steak over fries, and the chicken & caprese empanadas.

Then I took him to Dos chinos and picked up the Oahu Shrimp taco and the Bolsa Pork Bellies taco.

For dessert we went to Tropshaveice, and he got a snow capped shave ice.
