Allow me to introduce you. Pictured above is the spicy goat taco from the Indian cuisine themed RollOkPlease truck. I did order the extra spice, and it was everything I hoped for and more. Today was the annual Taco Libre Showdown. 40 food trucks were present, and 25 were competing. I was there to eat. I brought my family, and my good friend Lori. I ate way more than I should have. Here is a visual journey through our gastronomical adventure.
Both my husband and daughter ordered dogs from Tokyo Dog to start. This is not to be confused with Dog Japon, which is an all-time family favorite. The verdict was that it wasn't as good as Dog Japon, but still satisfying.
Next, I tried BeanFish. I had never heard of taiyaki before, but I fully appreciate this special treat today. On the left is an impossible to open Japanese drink. I finally did get the plunger to push down the glass marble, and was rewarded with something like a Clearly Canadian. On the right, is taiyaki, a fish shaped waffle sandwich with treats inside. I ordered the "K-Pop," which not only had an awesome name, but kalbi beef, kimchi, and pepper jack cheese.
My son got the Stoner Special from Maximus/Minimus. This included a perfect pulled-pork sandwich topped with mac and cheese. Needless to say, many people had food envy as we walked by trying to find a seat. I got a bite, and can say that the BBQ was the perfect level of smooth and spicy,
I can count on one hand the foods I dislike, and I'll typically even eat those. Typically frugal, but I'll pay top dollar for an amazing/unique dining experience. Never passed up a free meal, which has led me to become the #36 ranked eater in Major League Eating. July 4th, 2020 will be my third time competing in the Nathan's Hot Dog eating contest at Coney Island. I've been on ESPN. That's right people, I'm an athlete.
