OC Din Din a Go Go

Wednesday night? Then it’s time for Food Trucks in Orange County! Yep, the twitter-fueled food frenzy is rocking at the Irvine Lanes / Boomers lot off Michaelson in Irvine.

In attendance tonight were a couple new trucks and a few familiar favorites. Started off with a Garden Grove beef taco from Dos Chinos. I think they marinade the beef in a Korean sauce; giving the taco a really distinct flavor. With a squeeze of lime over the top – these things are delicious! (I ended up grabbing a burrito to go on my way out!)

Next up we tried a tasting truck run by Chef Joe Youkhan. Instead of going for an entree, I opted for some macaroni and cheese bites. They were very rich & creamy with a crispy shell and definitely hit the mark on the money. Share ’em with friends – one and a half (a serving is 3) was plenty.

Finally we scoped out The Lime Truck. The Carnitas Fries caught my eye – and they didn’t disappoint. The fries are fully loaded with carnitas, guacamole, cabbage, corn, beans, and sour cream. It’s a huge serving and definitely requires a seat when you eat ’em.

All in all – great night at the food trucks! Was disappointed a couple trucks weren’t in attendance: The Burnt Truck (I want at those fried chicken sliders again!) and Tapa Boy. Maybe next week!
