Food Truck Haven, Orange, CA

I stopped at Food Truck Haven on Thursday night, originally to get a bite at Poke Hut Truck (@thePokeHut). Unfortunately, they were out of tuna, and I am not a fan of salmon, so I told them I would have to try them again next time.

I had other great choices:
– Ragin Cajun (@CajunonWheels).
Cajun food on wheels! This truck was seen on the Great Food Truck Race, season 1, but food truck fans are more familiar with the animated owner, Stephen Domingue.

– Adobo Express Truck (@AdoboExpressOC)
Filipino food truck serving up adobo rice bowls, burritos, quesadillas, nachos, tacos, and, of course, lumpias (filipino style eggrolls).

– Hobo Co. Pizza (@HoboCoPizza)
A mobile pizza truck serving up customized, personal sized pizzas for one price.

– and for dessert Haole boys Shave Ice (@HBShaveIce)
Just like going back to the Islands…. and they even have a secret menu

It was a difficult decision, but I decided to have dinner from Adobo Express and dessert from Haole Boys

Haole Boys Shave Ice (@HBShaveIce) was at the Food Truck Haven on Thursday. It’s just like getting a cool, refreshing cup from the Islands! Don’t see what you want?  Ask them to create something from their Secret Menu!

What?? Secret Menu??

 

This is a small shave ice

So ono! A Tiger’s Blood shave ice, sno-capped (topped with condensed milk)

(Los Angeles, CA) – Out of hundreds of potential contestants, Producers of The Food Network’s The Great Food Truck Race, selects Postcards Central American Soul Food as one of the seven competitors for Season 6. The owner Greg King and chef of PostcardsCAS, from Southern California specialize in soul food cuisine. PostcardsCAS will be hosting their viewing event on Sunday, August 23 @ 5PM at The Parlor, 7250 Melrose Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90046.
The Great Food Truck Race will begin its sixth season in Santa Monica, CA as the food truck operators head out for a 2,500-mile journey along America’s historic Route 66. They’ll be making stops in Arizona, New Mexico, Texas, Oklahoma, Missouri and Illinois before finishing with an action-packed finale in Chicago. Host Tyler Florence will be navigating a team of professional food truck operators through multiple challenges geared to test their resolve and find “the best gourmet truck in the country”. The winning food truck will walk away with a cash prize of $50,000.
Lovers of soul food can look forward to meeting the team and experiencing the day-to-day adventure they face on the road as Greg, Grae and Monique travel across the country competing for the win.
Postcards Central American Soul Food’s signature dish is chicken, mac ‘n cheese, and greens served in either a wrap or bowl.  All of PostcardsCAS’ dishes are inspired by famous African-American historians such as The Greatest inspired by Muhammad Ali, Langston’s Choice after poet Langston Hughes, and Alice’s Final Word, inspired by author Alice Walker who wrote “The Color Purple.”
“Soul food is loved by people of all walks of life; however, often it’s only found in urban communities,” commented King. “I want to make this cuisine healthy and accessible to everyone, and it seems to be working…”
A foodie from childhood, King began his career in the food industry working alongside his dad in the family soul food business at the young age of 12. King’s dad, a classically trained chef, taught his four sons the artistry of cooking culinary dishes with a soulful twist. King easily picked up techniques for creating great soul food; however, in establishing his business he wanted to present it as healthier alternative to the decadent soul food created by his parents.
King launched PostcardsCAS in 2013 after leaving a successful career as a marketer for some of the biggest brands in the world, including NBC, Warner Bros., Fox Entertainment Group, L’Oreal, and Mattel.
King has utilized his professional experience as the sounding board to building a successful restaurant business. PostcardsCAS delivers tasty and healthy soul food options easily eaten on the go, because they are served in a wrap or bowl. Similar to Chipotle where Mexican cuisine is served in a wrap or bowl; King his customized a tantalizing menu offering notable soul food staples available for consumers who love southern soul food cuisine; yet, he’s added some Belizean staples (such as Rice and Peas, Oxtails and Plantain) to compliment his offerings.
