On the first Friday of each month, food truck lovers flock to the streets of Venice.
Countless food trucks line the streets awaiting hungry bellies and open mouths.
Be warned, you will be parking a bit further than you think. Get there early and get ready to fight a bit of a crowd.
As we walked along the streets the first truck that caught my eye was the B Sweet truck. I didn’t think it was humanly possible to have such deliciousness come from a truck but I was proved wrong, very wrong. I’m hoping I don’t come across this truck for a while or I’ll be needing to do a lot more hiking.
Since I moved to LA I’ve been in search for a cronut imposter and they had them!
Bad news bears: They were sold out 😦
BUT just look at their plethora of bread pudding flavors…
Starting with dessert, we ordered their glazed bread pudding.
It came out ooey, gooey and warm. The bread pudding is made with glazed bar donuts and topped with melty cream cheese frosting.
It was…heaven. Just so good.
And if you don’t believe me… just look at Jon, he seemed to be enjoying it. (He may also have a slight bread pudding obsession but hey, it could be worse.)
We weren’t done yet…Next came the tornado potato. I kept seeing people roaming the streets with twisted potatoes and had to have one. Wouldn’t you?
We ordered their original truffle oil twisted potato.
And then we saw the VCHO truck selling mexican cokes.
There’s a myth that Mexican coke tastes more natural and has more complex flavor than American coke.
Maybe it was just the really cool big glass coke bottle but…
We enjoyed it.
After we were refreshed, it was off to fill our bellies with more food of course.
The Bun Truck is a gourmet food truck serving Korean-Mediterranean fusion. They are known for their Korean BBQ gyros and steamed buns. (But I heard their duck fat fries are delish)
I ordered the Katsu Bun with deep fried pork, cucumbers, cilantro and sweet & spicy sauce.
The buns come out soft and steamy. The Katsu had a nice combination of flavor and texture. It was very spicy, I could definitely smell the flowers after.
After we were a bread pudding, potato tornado and Katsu bun in there was just one more thing left: Dessert.
We hadn’t been eating that all night or anything…
We ordered the original churros calientes. Just like fried dough in a stick.
I may have been in a small food coma by the end of the night. At least I have just about a month to recover. See you all at First Fridays on Abbott Kinney in August! xx
