“Truckin’ Back to the LBC,” Long Beach Street Food Fest Returns
2011-06-29 · By Editor
Gourmet food trucks are returning to Long Beach by popular demand! It was clear with the overwhelming success of last year’s two Long Beach Street Food Fests that participants and attendees alike wanted another helping. On July 9th, LA and Orange County’s preeminent mobile eateries will once again roll in to scenic Rainbow Lagoon Park with doors up from 10:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. serving their delectable fare.
The Long Beach Street Food Festival “Truckin’ back to the LBC” will feature 30 of Southern California’s favorite gourmet food trucks, a beer & wine garden and rockin’ live entertainment! Many of these trucks attract rock star followings, thanks in part to the latest Food Network hit “The Great Food Truck Race”. The Nom Nom Truck will make an appearance along with Crepes Bonaparte, The Lime Truck and Seabirds.
You may want to try a crisp and gooey “Smoky Melt” with Gouda, bacon and tomatoes from the #1 Truck in LA, The Grilled Cheese Truck or a Banh Mi sandwich from the Nom Nom Truck. How about a fresh Italian salad with proscuitto, mortadella, garbanzos and homemade balsamic vinaigrette from Greenz on Wheelz? Whether your palate leans toward a pizza slice from the Slice Truck or “Korean pub grub” from the Ahn-Joo Truck inspired by Chef/Owner Debbie Lee, you will be tempted to try them all. But leave room for dessert because there will be Chunk-n-Chip’s “Boo-Yah!” ice cream sandwiches, Sweet’s Truck red velvet cupcakes, and cinnamon & honey specialties from Auntie’s Fry Bread.
Enjoy cool ocean breezes and listen to the music of area bands Blue Steel and Blue Breeze, while you experience truly amazing cuisine.
