Now that colder weather has hit the bay area, some food truck gatherings have decided to take place less often. One of those gatherings is Edgewood Eats in Palo Alto. Instead of being every week, it is now held once a month on Tuesdays. On the plus side, this usually means more trucks come out each time. The strange part is that it is practically dark when Edgewood Eats takes place! This feels weird for those of us who frequented the event every week during the summer.
On December 6th, I went to the coldest Edgewood Eats I could remember. I warmed up quick with a tofu banh mi sandwich from Little Green Cyclo, an old favorite.
I then followed it with another warm favorite, some Mac ‘N Rolls from Soulnese.
I finished the night with some Butterscotch on the Go but somehow failed to take photos of it. Fear not, I have more Butterscotch to deliver with my second Edgewood Eats summary!
My first stop at the most recent Edgewood Eats was An the Go.
It had been awhile since I had their garlic noodles with vegetable stir fry. I thought maybe after overeating during the holidays I could handle the filling dish all in one sitting. Sadly, I was wrong. I ended up having to finish some for lunch the next day, but luckily the noodles are great as leftovers as well.
I also noticed that they lowered their prices a tad by making it a combo if you get the noodles with something else. With the two prices added together, it used to add up to $10, but with the combo it’s only $9. Yay for lowered prices!
Since I stopped myself early once I realized I couldn’t eat all the noodles, I had room for another favorite, a small tofu taco from BBQ Kalbi.
My final stop was, of course, Butterscotch on the Go again. They had a couple new menu items and my favorite butterscotch brownie, so I had to buy three desserts (I mean, I had no choice, right?) Two of them I shared with the boyfriend the next day.
The first new treat was the gingerbread with butterscotch and apples. I ate most of this while driving home and had a little bit the next day after finishing my garlic noodles for lunch. It kept very well for the next day!
The second new item (to me, at least) was the chocolate brownie. This also kept until the next day, although it was a little hard to cut through over twenty-four hours later. It reminded me of fudge and was super rich and yummy. I decided not to take a photo of the butterscotch brownie since my readers are probably sick of hearing me rave about how great those are. Seriously, I don’t think I could ever get sick of them!
Hopefully now that the winter solstice has taken place, we’ll see some more sunlight at next month’s Edgewood Eats. Is anyone else already looking forward to warmer weather for food trucking purposes?
