I don’t know how it is for the rest of the world but here in the San Francisco Bay Area, and almost all of California, the food truck scene is blowing up.
Every Wednesday there is a Food Festival at the Hiller Aviation & Museum in San Carlos. There always are several trucks at this event that range from Asian fusion dishes (Senor Sisig, Nom Nom, Chairman Bao) to gourmet burgers (3-Sum Eats, Brass Knuckle) and lobster rolls (ShackMobile). There’s even desert on some days (Kara’s Cupcakes)! Every week brings a different line up so if there were certain trucks that you were looking for you’d have to check on Hiller’s events page to find out.
Since the weather was nice out today, there was a crowd out in front of Hiller. It has been a while since I’ve seen so many people here at Hiller for the food fest since it has been pretty cold lately. Today the weather was real nice that you can feel the sun warming you up as you wait in line. Today it seemed that every truck had the average wait time in line with about 30 mins, not that bad.
For lunch I chose one of my favorite food trucks Senor Sisig. I had the pleasure on enjoying a chicken “Senor” Sisig burrito that was silog on top of it! Having the burrito silog means they add a fried egg inside the burrito. When I first had a “Senor” Sisig burrito, I never knew how yummy and juicy an egg can make a burrito.
Luckily for me there were no desert carts around for me to be a bigger fatty lol.
This visit to Hiller Aviation & Museum was bitter sweet since I am resigning from my current job at Element Case and moving on to Flor in San Francisco. It will be a real challenge to find some food trucks near me in the Filmore district so I’m doing my best in enjoying these last few trips to Hiller.
