This past weekend I cruised on up to Penn Valley, CA for Foods4Thought’s Food Truck Food Festival sponsored by the folks at Stitches ‘n Dishes. I love food trucks and this was definitely the place to go. They had a nice line-up of trucks and food vendors from Sacramento, the Bay area, and even local folks. I ate from three trucks and three vendors.
I had to get a Naked Lobster Roll from the Shack Mobile. I’ve eaten from this truck before so I knew I was going to get some good eats.
Next up I had the Peter Rattle Tail from Pit Bros BBQ, it was a mix of rattle snake and rabbit. It actually tasted good and had a nice texture. Pit Bros BBQ are local guys from Penn Valley.
The Skippy Dog from Heavenly Dog…weird, but it worked. Something about the peanut butter, the grilled onion, the fried onion, and the jack cheese all coming together made for an interesting dog.
You really should check out their corn dog, man this thing was huge! Had a really nice crunch when bitten into and the bater had a fresh cornmeal taste. This is my third time eating from Heavenly Dog and if you like dogs, give them a try.
Now who doesn’t like a nice tender beef heart skewered on a stick? This was my first time trying Lima – Peruvian Food and all I can say is if I see them again, I’ll be standing in line. You should give beef hearts a try, they had a nice spice to them and the chimichurri sauce was perfect.
It was a warm afternoon so I headed over to the Local Kine Shaved Ice truck and ordered a large shaved ice with mango, guava, and pineapple. Want something interesting? Have then dust it with plum salt…go ahead, give it a try.
I thought the shaved ice was the last bit for the day, but as I walked out I saw the Butterscotch Girl….I don’t have a picture of what’s behind the lid because I ate it too quickly.
All in all, it really was nice event, there was live music and plenty of seating in the shade. In a couple of weeks there’s a BBQ competition at the same location, I just might check it out.
