Our first stop was at a place called Mezcal and the delicacy that they were going to share with all of us were a few specialties- roasted grasshoppers, Mezcal tequila with worms, and melotes.
|Worms were fermented in the tequila for 4 years. |
They popped in our mouth like a cherry tomato and tasted like strong medicinal tequila.
I did not need to take a second bite!
Our next stop was a food truck- MOGO BBQ. Korean taco truck where we had short rib quesadillas and tacos. It was worth every flavorful piece.
|Chips, salsa, guacamole, and grasshoppers- |
We think they were crickets.
They had a spicy muddy, shrimp flavor
|MOGO BBQ Short rib quesadilla and tacos! Yummy goodness!|
Third stop was Hanuman Thai. Where we ate pad thai, masuman curry and tasted lychee sake.
|Traditional pad Thai and chicken curry over rice. |
The chef learned all of his recipes from his parents and the place has a family feel to it.
I can't wait to go back and try more.
The final stop in the discrawl was this crazy ice cream truck called Treatbot. Crazy because they have a karaoke machine on the back of their truck for people to sing with. I spoke with the owner who was standing outside of his truck just giggling at the crowd. He said that his friends were joking with him to have a truck with a karaoke machine. He went on to explain that in the Philippines you find karaoke machines in the alleys and in all sorts of strange places. So since his parents had the equipment sitting around their house he decided why not do it. And the rest is history. Treatbot has tasty ice cream and entertainment.
|My coffee almond fudge ice cream came in 3 oz dixie cups. |
The best two bites of the night!
