Wrapping up Long Beach Street Food Fest – October 9

I am back to my normal self after a sunny day of eating, drinking and having fun!  We met a lot of great people.  We met some more gourmet food truck owners, some of our Twitter followers, some of our blog fans, writers of other spectacular blogs and people just waiting in line for food.  Needless to say it was a long day but we loved it.  Big props to the organizers and volunteers of the LB Street Food Fest.  Especially to Jean and AJ, they always take great care of us.

We spent a lot of time at the Food Truck Tweetup and Save the Food Trucks booth.  Dan did a great job pulling it all together.  The turnout from the truck owners and food truck stalker volunteers was an awesome site.  Make sure you check out their website at savethefoodtrucks.com.

There was a ton to eat, see and do.  Check out the slideshow below for some of our favorite moments!

We would love to hear your stories.  Please post below with stories from the day and which food truck was your favorite!

  1. I didn’t go to this event, as I was out of town, however I would like to know what you liked about this event vs OC Foodie Fest and what can each of them learn from each other?

    1. Robert, thanks for the excellent question. I really need to think about that one. They are very different events. I will put some thought into it and writeup an article. It is a great idea.

  2. Had a great time at the LB Foodfest! Thank you to all the organizers and Food Trucks for making it a great day. Had to get there late so we missed out on some things, but still had a great time, met some new people and am looking forward to seeing everyone again! This event was well organized and the variety of trucks was so cool! There was something for EVERYONE!

  3. Great to finally meet you in person! I had a good time at the LB Food Fest and stuffed myself with such good food lol. Thanks for taking that great action shot of me interviewing Dan. I’m posting that on my FB page if that’s ok with you?! Give you credit for a great shot of course. =)

    See you around again soon!

    1. We stuffed ourselves as well. Didn’t get to everything we wanted to but close.

      Please free to use the photo and thank you for offering to add the attribution to it. Can’t wait to see the end result!

  4. Found your site while googling the LB Street Food Fest and found myself in pic number 8 next to the dude scratching his head (my bf)! I think the best truck there was the Dogzilla truck – best hot dog ever (I love avocados)! I went with 3 other people and we split up. I was at the Don Chow truck for over an hour – horrendous service and people with clipboards disrupting their business. And some chick who ordered 5 people behind me ran off with my order! Although, to her credit, they called out the wrong name. I had to wait another 15 minutes for them to make me new taco samplers. My bf stood in the Nom Nom line for two hours and the other people made much better time, hitting up Del’s lemonade, Longboard (awesome ice cream bars dipped in chocolate and rice krispy cereal), Ahn-Joo Korean bbq, and the crepe truck.
