Seattle foodies get your appetites ready; the Mobile Food Rodeo is back again! This ultimate food truck experience, will gather more than 20 food trucks from all over the city — and a few from Portland. There’ll be something for everyone!
Last year I judged with Table Talk Radio Host Jamie Peha and the Chef in the Hat Thierry Rautureau along with other fun, foodie luminaries. There were prizes for Best New Food Wagon, Best Side Dish, Best Dessert, and the most coveted award, the Wagon Wheel Award (Best in Show)!
The Food “Sheriffs” ready to chow down!
Food, food and more food!
Let me tell you that it was fun but I was stuffed by the end of the day! After tasting different approaches to pizza to curries as well as hand-dipped ice cream cookie sandwiches to sliders, I rolled my way home!
This year I will be out of town and missing out on the grub but keep me posted on your adventures – tweet me @KathyCaseyChef your favorites – so I can live/eat vicariously through you!
The Mobile Food Rodeo will take place on Sunday, May 6th from 11 – 6 just outside of Fremont Studios. The admission is free* so you can save your bucks for all the tasty treats. And to wash it all down there is a charity beer garden so you can hunker down and enjoy your chow!
Even the Food Network’s Eat St. will be on hand to showcase Seattle’s vibrant street food culture and help crown the top food truck at the prestigious Wagon Awards.
So get your appetite ready and giddy on up; it’s going to be another fantastic food rodeo! -Kathy
*Since this is a free event, expect long lines at each truck. To beat the lines, you may want to consider getting a VIF (Very Important Foodie!) Express Badge.
