Attention foodies! The 4th annual L.A. Street Food Fest is back and this year’s list of participants tops nearly 100 vendors, who will serve their specialties at the Rose Bowl on Saturday, June 29. Please wear loose pants to accommodate the delicious samplings from world class restaurants and Top Chefs, popular gourmet trucks as well as street stands and carts.
L.A. Street Food Fest is the perfect gathering for cultural cuisine. Vendors such as Frieda Restaurant serve their Mexican Queso Gordito con Mole and the Bibigo Truck gives you a taste of Seoul with bulgoi and wontons. Looking for a twist on comfort food? Visit food truck favorite The Grilled Cheese Truck as they present two sandwiches: The Cheesy Mac and Rib and The Plain and Simple Melt with American Cheese.
Eaters can stay hydrated at the Beer Garden & Wine Tasting area or if you are hanging with the kids, pick up a cold juice from Pressed Juicery.
The best part other than stuffing your face? You pay one price for unlimited food and drinks! Plus, lines move quickly since you usually have one or two choices at each vendor.
L.A. Street Food Fest founders Shawna Dawson and Sonja Rasula created the festival to create a community that supports local independent small business owners as well as the local gastronomists. Shawna and Sonja have a special love for street food and also share the same birthday.
