The 4th Annual Los Angeles Street Food Fest is fast approaching, a one-day tasting event where eager eaters gather to sample some of LA’s newest and most prominent food vendors, stands, chefs, pop-ups, restaurants, carts, and more. A week ago, I was lucky enough to be invited to a media preview of this year’s food fest. Nearly a dozen select food venders packed into LA’s Guelaguetza Restaurant, where they shared tastings of their dishes ahead of the main event. It was a night of gluttony, for we all spent a couple hours tasting a variety of flavors that spun all over the food spectrum.
Below are some highlights of the evening. The actual event is sure to be exponentially greater than this mini-preview, so be sure to get your ticket for game day before it’s too late. This year, like in the past, is sure to sell out! Here’s to happy eating.
The awesome Chunk-n-Chip ice cream trunk offered a few flavors to sample. I tried their Drunk Monkey ice cream sandwich, made of warm graham cracker cookies with banana cream pie ice cream with bourbon and salted caramel. Did I mention they serve all their ice cream sandwiches with warm cookies? Truly divine!
The Donut Snob displayed an array of their decant doughnut flavors and toppings, like maple bacon, raspberry lemon, peanut butter glaze, salted caramel, and toasted marshmallow, to name a few.
