Fullerton: Swinging Kitchen, Dos chinos, & Chunknchip Booyah Eating Contest

The Chuckwagonstop in Fullerton has become another popular spot on Thursdays. Today was also the Chunknchip Booyah Eating contest.

While waiting for the contest, I had the Coconut Shrimp lettuce taco and the Pho-rench dip sandwich from Swinging kitchen. Martin had the Perfect Lettuce taco, also from Swinging kitchen, and the Oahu Shrimp taco and the new Irvine Chicken taco from Dos chinos.

Irvine: The Lime Truck, Barcelona on the Go

My sister Becky is my weekly guest blogger, reporting on food trucks from the Teller & Michelson lunch lot in Irvine, CA. 

There’s a reason why you have to wait in line if you want to eat at The Lime Truck on Wednesdays.

Every week, they’re always thinking outside of the box with innovative items to tantalize our taste buds. The chicken marsala taco (chicken with tomatoes and mushrooms) was a creative take on an Italian dish we all know and love. There was also New England gnocchi, a unique fusion of New England style clam chowder with Italian gnocchi. Brilliant!


In contrast, if you aren’t feeling adventurous, you can’t get any more tried and true than Barcelona on the Go’s top sirloin tacos: Two tacos topped with fresh corn salsa.  Comforting and delicious!

Santa Ana: Ranchoagogo

The County of Orange was having a “Green Fair” in downtown Santa Ana and Rancho a Gogo was there with Crepes Bonaparte.

I was in a hurry, so I just picked up a pulled pork slider to go, and the guys thoughtfully wrapped my meal like a swan. Aww, thanks!

I thought only fancy restaurants wrap your to go orders like this?
Pulled pork sliders (without the slaw)
yes, That’s one order!
