A short little pilgrimage post today, as I share one of the delightful lunches from my mom's recent LA visit.
Monday through Friday, the park along Lankershim Blvd., across from Universal Studios, is host to a myriad of food trucks. One can check the daily choices by following one of my favorite blogs: http://universalfoodtrucks.blogspot.com
So, Mom and I stopped by the park with open minds, and eventually decided upon something I miss dearly since moving out of the south - Barbecue!
In comes Smokin' Willie's, and it's awesome $10 "sampler plate," which made a perfect shared lunch for Mom and me.
So that pic consists of two BBQ chicken "sliders," basically teeny little baguette sandwiches filled with BBQ chicken, topped with their special cabbage slaw. And then two BBQ pulled pork tacos. on mini corn tortillas, with the same slaw. Potato salad on the side.
Delicious! And oh so satisfying for my long-time BBQ craving. Smokin' Willie's actually has different levels of spice for their BBQ sauces, and we got the mildest (Foodster has a low spicy tolerance).
And I'd never had a BBQ taco, so that was a fusion experience I was glad to try. Their signature slaw is really good. And I don't tend to even like cold slaw, so that is something.
Potato salad was potato salad. Good, not super memorable.
All in all, a fine lunch! And the day the park gave us was quite enjoyable.
See you all again soon!
