I have to be honest, I started this blog because I accidentally came up with a name that I liked for it … F. T. W. Food Truck World, not to be mistaken with Fuck the World. I do not think or myself as a writer or really with anything interesting to say, I’m definitely not a “foodie” as I am way too picky of an eater to be one.
I claim to dislike TOMATOES, ONIONS, PEPPERS and all foods green. The one thing I can say is this: Sarah introduced me to my first food truck … KOGI BBQ, and I’ve been chasing trucks ever since.
I was definitely skeptical when we arrived at the pre-tweeted location for the Kogi truck in the city of Orange. When we got there, there had to be 50 people in line a head of us AND NO TRUCK! I almost felt like cheering when the truck arrived, then, I started feeling like a dork, waiting in line for this food-fad-truck that was supposed to be so great. Plus, I’m sure I was the oldest person in line … kids in their teens and twenties with their noses buried in their mine’s-cooler-than-yours-phones, piercings everywhere and funny haircuts. I think we ordered one of everything on the menus. i know we got tacos (short rib, chicken, spicy pork), Sarah got a quesedilla, I think I got a hot dog with kimchi … I KNOW I was eating things listed on my above dislike list, I’m sure of it. But i powered through and really enjoyed the food. I even think it was worth the wait. the wait for the truck’s arrival, the wait in line, the wait to get our food after ordering … The whole thing, it was worth it.
