Fullerton: Slummin Gourmet

On Wednesday nights, you can find a token LA food truck at Troy High School.  I caught up with the Slummin’ Gourmet and tried their “Warrior special” the steamed mussels, and Karen had the walnut shrimp tacos.

Irvine: Taco Maria

Taco Maria certainly does not serve your average, run of the mill street food tacos and burritos.

Aracherra taco is marinated hanger steak,  grilled with a charred shisito pepper, bacon and onions. The carnitas a la naranja taco is tender pork that is slow roasted with a dash of cinnamon and orange and topped with avocado, radish and cilantro.

For dessert, the flan de queso, made with farmer’s cheese in a luscious caramel sauce with raspberries.
