WDTBD!?: SJ Eats

A quick "What Does This Button Do!?" post.  This past weekend, my friends and I went to SJ Eats: A Moveable Feast.  It was a congregation of food trucks in a San Jose parking lot with super delicious food.  A great idea, but as it was the first time they put on the event, I don't think they were ready for the response!  Lines blurred into each other and took anywhere from 1-2 hours to get any sort of food.  Luckily, the day was beautiful and perfect for sitting on the ground eating delicious food. 

Trucks included Filipino, Ice Cream, Cajun, Indian, Cupcakes and Curry. There were over 20 trucks -- 10 for lunch and 10 for dinner.  Our friend was already in the Filipino truck line when we got there, so in an effort to save time, we just got food there.  Another friend got into the shorter (i.e. 30 min) ice cream truck line for Horchata ice cream sandwiches.  The cookie was chocolate chip!  Talk about decadent. 

From the Filipino truck, we got Sisig tacos, which is basically braised beef plus cilantro, cabbage and onions.  With some lime juice, it was highly delicious.  We also got fresh lumpia, which are eggroll type finger food with sweet and sour dipping sauce.  And the BF got himself Coke in a glass bottle, which he claims tastes better than cans or plastic bottles. 

One of our friends came after we ordered food (sad!).  Since the trucks would be closing in less than 30 min and were mostly out of food, we went to an Argentinian empanada place called The Mmoon.  If you've never had one, the flaky crust and warm filling are super delicious!

This was the same day as my Style Challenge, but I gave up my socks and high heels after 2.5 hours of walking around in exchange for flat oxfords :P.  I loved the hubcap decor of the restaurant.

My sad friends.  Apparently the restaurant closed it doors because they sold 3 days worth of food in 3 hours!  My BF and I made it into the restaurant before they did this, so the owner was nice enough to let them in. 
I love trying Argentinian beer.  This one was light and refreshing. 
Our pile of empanadas.  There was pizza, sausage, cheese and corn, spinach and a few others.  So delicious! 
We found this awesome old school telephone booth outside the restaurant and just HAD to take pictures outside, inside and all around it. 

We had a super fun time!  Do you have food trucks in your neighborhood?  They're all over the place in the Bay Area, with their twitters and Facebook pages telling their schedules.  It's a fun way to get a quick bite!

Thanks for stopping by, see ya tomorrow!


  1. Sounds like a fun day! The food looks delicious. We have lots of yummy food carts here in Portland. My favorite one sell waffles:)

  2. Oooh! Is that the waffle truck that parks by Voodoo doughnuts? I got a waffle with black forest ham and syrup. I didn't think it would be good, but it was delicious!
