Food Truck Heaven
Darryl and I headed to Sacto MoFo a couple weekends ago to try some mobile food from local food trucks. The event was awesome but due to the crowds we ended up waiting 45+ minutes for our food in the heat and truck fumes, and needless to say, it left us a little cranky.
Since I’ve been following many of the local food trucks on Twitter and Facebook, I saw that several of them were going to be parked in Darryl’s neck of the woods on Friday night. I suggested we meet up in the parking lot (on the way home from work) for a mini dinner date.
I was a little bit worried because I really wanted to stick to my diet this weekend, after splurging on drinks last weekend for Raise Pints to Raise Hope. I posted a comment on the Local Kine Shaved Ice Facebook page asking if they had any sugar free flavors. I mostly stay away from sugar substitutes but it’s a nice way to treat myself once in awhile. To my surprise, not only was the answer “Yes” but they asked what my favorite flavors were and said those would be the sugar free flavors for the month. Talk about service!
I love supporting local establishments and these food trucks really aim to please! And when you are trying to eat healthy, never hesitate to ask for a special order – you may be surprised by how accommodating restaurants (and food trucks!) can be.
