Street Food

Mr. Bumblebee and I have succumb to the new fad of "food trucks". Luckily they are becoming quite popular in the OC although we don't have a huge selection like LA has. Recently we've tried Dos Chinos, a Latin Asian Cuisine.

There was a line even before the food truck got there. As soon as they got there and started up their ovens, the smells were yummy! This isn't fast food folks. It's made fresh to order so there is a small wait.

The Gardena Short Rib Taco ($2) Short rib marinated in Jose Cuervo traditional tequila korean bbq sauce topped with cabbage, onions, and tamarind sour cream.

Super fresh and very flavorful. The meat is tender and juicy. The sour cream was so different and accompanied the meat perfectly.
Mr. Bumblebee got the Garden Grove Burrito ($5). Basically the same but burrito style with rice. He demolished the entire thing.

To finish off the night, as soon as we finished our taco/burritos, Tropical Shave Ice showed up! I was pretty excited!
Since I was already pretty full from Dos Chinos I kept it simple and got a regular banana ($3) with a snowcap. Yummy!
Mr. Bumblebee got cherry and lemon-lime.
The ice is so fluffy and light. They don't skimp on the flavors either. There are plently of add ins that we passed on this time around, but I can't wait till I can get another one!
Thanks again Dos Chinos and Tropical Shave Ice! Till next time....
