I more than conquered.
This past weekend, the 6th annual LA Street Food Festival went off with a major BANG, leaving myself (and probably every other attendee) in a delicious food coma, forced to uncomfortably waddle to the car.
The event, which took place at the infamous Pasadena Rose Bowl, boasted a stellar lineup of food vendors, craft beer and cocktails. Combined with VIP access the field, print-your-own-Instagram photos and live entertainment, I can personally say that THIS event is THE food event of the year, here in Los Angeles.
With over 100 vendors, it is sadly humanly impossible to sample each and every item. Unless you’re Takeru Kobayashi. But let’s face it: I aint no Kobayashi! I did, however, consume as much as I could possibly withstand, and then I had a little more. And after taking a short break, on my way to the exit gates four hours later, I ate some more. Followed by another michelada from the Michiemobil.
Some of my favorites from the food-filled day, originally shared on my Instagram feed:
Poke and matcha popcorn from Sweetfin.
Pulpo tacos from Mariscos. This was the BEST damn octopus I have EVER had. Seriously.
Mussel and uni sake shots. One of my favorites of the entire day!
Yep. Cookies and cream cotton candy. It was everything I never knew I needed in my life.
Curry chicken from Mama Musubi.
It was an event for the books, and I cannot wait until next summer, when I can stuff my face yet again with some of the best dishes in LA! Cheers!
LA Street Food Festival invited me to attend their awesome event. All opinions, like always, are my own.
