Food Truck Festival

A few weekends ago, baby daddy and I went to the first annual Westport Food Truck Festival.  If you know me, you know my love for food… and food trucks!  And yes, the concept has finally caught on in Kansas City many months later than it has in most big cities, but nonetheless, it is here!  πŸ™‚  It was a blistering hot day as are all days these days, but there was plenty of food and entertainment to keep our mind off the heat!

Ready, set, vroom!!

Westport is a great area to eat/drink/play for visitors to KC!

Such cool scenery for the event!

Meatball sandwich with cheeeeeese, yum!

My first Torta Ahogoda, not bad not bad!

More trucks galore.

Smores cupcakes?  YES PLEASE!!

My friend and I are dreaming up of starting our own Asian food truck with dumplings, egg rolls, and shaved ice.  What do you think?  Should we open one up?  Haha… it’s a fun dream but it’lll never happen…

What’s your favorite food truck?  If you were going to start one, what would you start?

    Food truck festival? I don’t think New Jersey has caught on just yet to the food truck fad πŸ™‚ Sounds yummy though!

    I have never eaten from a food truck but I have always wanted to. I totally think you should do this- shaved ice and mini Asian foods to go sounds so perfect!

    I think a dumpling and egg roll food truck would be great. I would want to start a pierogis food truck.

    LOL that you call him Babys daddy.

    Can’t wait to see what you will be having. You must be excited to share the news.

    it’s finally catching on up here too, but still nit enough trucks to have a festival!! everything looks delish!

    Oh man, how did I miss this!?! I’m super jealous over here. YUM–that meatball sandwich looks outstanding! And I’d definitely visit your food truck if you’d visit mine! I think I’d have a Cookies & Ice Cream truck!

    ahh, all of that looks so good. i love food trucks! one of my favorites is the wafel truck in NYC, wafel & dinges. sooo good.

    i think i’d sell stir-fried nian gao since it’s something a lot of non-asian people aren’t familiar with and i’m quite sure my mom’s various nian gao recipes are the bomb.

    Yum, I love food trucks. My favorite is the korilla – korean food truck – so good. I like the schnitzel truck too. NY has plenty of them.

    I’ve always wanted to go to a food truck festival like this one. And so far, my favorite has been the MIHO Gastrotruck in San Diego. It brings all local farm-fresh food to the streets — and that food is PHENOMENAL.

    That looks so drool worthy! I keep seeing amazing food trucks everywhere, but not in real life. πŸ™ Haha.

    I had no idea this was happening! Wish I had known! Oh, and yes, you should absolutely open your Asian food truck…yum!
