Full Disclosure: I paid for this food with my own money and I was in no way reimbursed for this blog post. The opinions are completely my own.
One of the days while I was out in California, I was lucky enough to get to go to the Electronics Entertainment Expo (E3) since my husband works in the industry.
Since we only had one day at the expo, we packed as much in as we could. When it came time for lunch, we wanted something close and easy. Luckily, when there are large expos like this, there are often a few food trucks gathered waiting for the tired and hungry people that are leaving the expo to go to lunch.
In a parking lot across from the convention center where the expo was being held were a few different food trucks. We checked them all out first, and each actually decided on a different one for lunch – and then another for dessert. There was a truck there called the “Nom Nom Truck” which we both thought was an awesome name for a truck, but neither of us ended up eating there. We did, however learn the definition of “Nom” from the back of the truck though:
I decided on the Phamish truck, which describes itself as Vietnamese home cooking. I got the Veggie Lemongrass Tofu Vietnamese Rice Vermicelli. I will be completely honest and tell you that I don’t think I would have ordered this if there hadn’t been a picture of the meal on the side of the truck.
I was surprised that this was actually a cold noodle dish! Maybe this says something about what I know about Vietnamese food, is the rice vermicelli always cold? Luckily, even though I was kind of surprised that it was cold, it still tasted really good! The noodles, peanuts and beans sprouts were good, and the tofu I think was some of the best I’ve ever had. It was cooked and seasoned perfectly!
Taste: A, it was kind of unexpected, but it was very good!
Cost: A+, it was only $6.50, and it was actually a lot of food!
The husband had a lobster roll from the Slap Yo Mama Soul Food truck.
He said it was good, but not outstanding.
For dessert, we shared two fuji apple eggrolls from the Ahn-Joo truck, which is apparently a Korean snack bar.
These were very good. They were a great after lunch dessert because they weren’t super heavy. The apples were fresh and crisp, and the outsides were crispy and cinnamony. Delicious.
Taste: A, very good and fresh tasting.
Cost: A-, the two of them were $5. That might be a little higher than I would have thought, but really not that bad at all.
Would I go there again? Yes, if I lived in the area, I can see myself craving these……just like Bluephies cookie dough eggrolls…..
