Can you believe it’s already October? Jeez time flies when you’re having fun. And again it’s the first Tuesday of the month and that means Food Truck Tuesday of course! Time for another recipe, made with Food Truck inspiration.

I love bowls. Big bowls, small bowls, bowls in a cute color or bowls with a hip print. They are all more than welcome in my kitchen. I have more bowls than I have plates and they come in all sizes. I like to serve side dishes or garnishes in small bowls, and preferably ‘mix and match’. We eat our dinner often in deep plates, or large Asian bowls. Definitely always if we are using chopsticks, but also if we’re enjoying a tv-dinner because we’re in the Continue reading

Today is a very special “Food Truck Friday” because I have to admit that the inspiration for this recipe didn’t came from a food truck. But when you think about Food Trucks you also think about street food, right? And a night market is also all about street food! Because a while ago, I discovered something new (to me) in LA: the Night Market!

A Night Market is an Asian market with food stalls, music performances and some vendors selling goodies. But those last two didn’t gain my attention, because all I needed was the food! Continue reading

For the past weeks, since April 8, every Tuesday I’ve been to the Food Truck Lot in Santa Monica, that’s quite often right? Okay, except for the two weeks I was in Amsterdam. But still that’s 6 Tuesday evenings in a row, haha! Last week, I didn’t meant going to the Food Trucks because there was enough food in the fridge, some remains of a cooking session that I did for my blog and barbecue leftovers from Memoral Day, the day before.

But my friends thought it was a good idea to meet at the Food Trucks so we could eat there all together. And heck, why not? At least the weather was perfect!
I love it to spread blankets and tarps on the grass and to order food from three different food trucks. Because yes, that’s what P and I did! I only skipped the Ben & Jerry’s ice cream afterwards because I already stuffed my face in truffle fries, everyday is not a Sunday 😉

And yet this week I give this ‘Food Truck Friday’ a festive touch with this delicious champorado, a Filipino rice pudding with white chocolate instead of dark chocolate. So yummy! Normally I never buy desserts at the food trucks, simply because I still want to lose weight and the fries are often my sin.

Food Truck Tuesday – Currywurst

One of my first food truck experiences after moving to LA last year was the Currywurst Truck. There is one thing you might not know about me and it’s that I grew up near the German border at the east side of the Netherlands.


While growing up we often went to Germany for shopping on Dutch holidays. Ever since then I love German food: pretzels, german bread and currywurst. And while studying me and my best friend drove to Germany for grocery shopping at least once a month. It was just a 15-minute drive and I would stock up on alcohol because Continue reading

Food Truck Tuesday: Bulgogi Beef Bowl

I never really had Korean food until 3 (or so) years ago when friends took us to a Korean BBQ restaurant in London. There aren’t many Korean people in the Netherlands, let alone Korean restaurants. I’m so sorry for all the Dutchies that are missing out on all that delicious food! 😉

Of course, you can easily make it at home but picking up Korean food at the food truck is so much better 😉 Uhm ok I shouldn’t have said that Continue reading

Aaaaaand… another one! I already promised you a second hot dog recipe. For this second edition of Food Truck Tuesday I was planning to make the Chili dog I had at our first visit of an LA food truck.

And right before I was planning to make them we ran into the Dogtown Dogs truck again, this time at the LACMA at a Sunday when we went to the La Brea Tar Pits. We were into a small and quick lunch at 3pm. Yes, on Sundays we always take it slow and easy 🙂 Continue reading

For this second edition I wanted to focus to the first Food Truck meal we had after arriving in Los Angeles a little over 9 months ago. It was on a sunny Saturday…

Wow, that sounds like the beginning of fairy tale 😉 Continue reading

Food Truck Tuesday – slow cooker chicken tikka masala

One of the best things of living in LA are the food trucks! My love for food trucks started almost two years, when we were in LA for vacation. P had to work that day and he took the car so I walked to the beach to sit there and read a book. On my way back I noticed I was a little bit hungry and right at that moment there it was: a food truck!

I stood in line and ordered a quesadilla. But then the lady in the truck asked me what kind of quesadilla I wanted. I panicked, looked at the menu but it was all in spanish so I ordered Continue reading
