The L.A. Street Food Fest brings a diverse swath of L.A. street food — not just from food trucks, carts, stands and pop-ups, but also from celebrity chefs and brick-and-mortar restaurants — to the Rose Bowl July 11.
The mission, according to L.A. Street Food Fest’s founders and organizers Shawna Dawson and Sonja Rasula, is “not only a desire to fill a gap in the local foodie and events scene with a delicious good time, but to create community and a platform to educate and support independent small business owners.”
The Big One is back! Next Saturday, June 29, L.A. Street Food Fest returns to Pasadena’s Rose Bowl with over 100 restaurants, food trucks, pop-ups, and sidewalk chefs preparing street-style specialties in an all-you-can-eat orgy of traditional and trailblazing recipes.
For those interested in beer and spirits, there will be a Singha Beer Garden -- complete with kegs, four cocktail bar stations and wine tasting at the Cupcake Winery's mobile lounge. Those in search of non-alcoholic refreshments can head to stands like Pressed Juicery, Honest Tea, Jarritos and ONE Coconut Water. Handsome Roasters and The Coffee Bean will provide caffeinated pick-me-ups.
Their truck drove into business in L.A. at just the right time in 2012, as the food truck industry was exploding in California. Some days, their truck has a line of 50-to-70 customers waiting for their famous lobster, and the cousins said they still try to work on their mobile restaurant every day, alongside the company’s 50 employees.
