July 16: LA Street Food Fest Returns to The Rose Bowl

PhotobucketThe LA Street Food Fest is returning to The Rose Bowl this summer on July 16! Like last year, this festival will feature more than 80 food vendors from food trucks, carts, restaurants, and celebrity chefs.

While last year's event was better than the first, they're trying to make it even better this year crowd-wise by having three limited attendance sessions, capped at 1500 attendees, that promise to treat everyone like VIPs with less lines and crowds. The three sessions are all geared towards different crowds (there's a family picnic event, and there's also a 21+ "date night").

General admission tickets to each event are $60 and you can also get a family pack for you, your SO, and your kid(s).The tickets will cover all the food and drinks including the ice cream lounge, booze (there's a tequila tent) for the 21+ event, and more.

A portion of the proceeds this year will go to the will go to the Downtown Women’s Center, which provides "permanent supportive housing and a safe and healthy community fostering dignity, respect, and personal stability, and to advocate ending homelessness for women."

If you're still thinking, here are some highlights from last year:

mini cemita from Pal Cabron
Some treats from the now-off-the-streets Manila Machine:
Pork belly and pineapple adobo (pork braised in tangy sauce of vinegar, soy, and pineapple).
Lumpia shanghai (pork, carrots, spicy ginger wrapped in thin eggroll)


Crispy tofu ball from Starry Kitchen
Vegan wine, champagne, and chocolate sorbet from Gourmet Guild.

Disclosure: I attended last year's event for free.
