It appears to be food tasting season here in Los Angeles. Art and I are going to be wearing our stretchy pants for the next few weeks that’s for sure! We have Tacolandia this Sunday at the Palladium, East LA Meets Napa next month at Union Station, and another one, the LA Street Food Fest, who is touting itself as “the first, the original…LA’s largest and most affordable tasting event” at the Rose Bowl on June 29. Our pansas can’t wait!!
The LASFF’s 4th Annual Summer Tasting Event organizers say it has an expanded footprint to accommodate even more vendors and sponsors, introducing guests to dozens of legendary street food chefs from all parts of Los Angeles and beyond. We’ll say one thing, this year’s event definitely has a Latino influence.
Attendees will get the best of LA‘s vibrant street food scene plus top chefs and award-winning restaurants in an iconic, idyllic setting. Highlights from the mouth-watering line-up of vendors include LA food truck favorites the Grilled Cheese Truck, Wicked Kitchen, The Lobos Truck and Currywurst; and pop-ups The Ceviche Project, Plant Food for People and Vagabond Grillyard.
Last year’s People’s Choice winner, Dog Haus, returns along with past Judge’s favorites, local lonchero Mariscos Jalisco and Baja, Mexico’s Javier Plascencia and Mariscos El Mazateño, as well as San Diego’s Aqui es Texcoco.
Event Partner, the Taste of Mexico, will represent with all of their TOM Association restaurants — Frida, Guelaguetza, La Casita Mexicana and La Monarca Bakery — plus more than a dozen others including Corazon y Miel, Loteria Grill, Mexikosher, and James Beard award-winning Yuca’s of Hollywood. Plus, Pablo Moix and Steve Livigni mixing it up, some mariachi and a few other surprises in store.
For the sweet tooth, the popular Ice Cream Social returns even bigger, featuring cult favorites The Donut Snob, Peddler’s Creamery and Dragon’s Whisker Candy alongside Churros Calientes, Float, The Cream’wich, Mwokaji Cakery and Z Confections, along with the debut of Sweet Clementine’s popsicles, and more.
