World Street Food Congress

The World Street Food Congress was held in the F1 Pit last May 31- June 9. We went on June 1 which was a Saturday and we were excited to sample different street food from all over the world. Our overseas guests were the ones who asked us to bring them there.

We were surprised that the wasn’t a huge crowd at the F1 pit.

The first dish we tried was from The People’s Pig is by Chef Cliff Allen from Portland Oregon. The Porchetta is an Italian pulled pork meat which was moist and well seasoned. The arugula with lemon cut the fatty flavor of the pork and fresh ciabatta rolls completed the sandwich. This was our favorite among all the dishes we tried that we had it one more time before we left the venue.

The fish tacos from Tacombi by Chef Aaron Sanchez from New York was another favorite. The fish was moist and the breading was crisp.

The soft shell crab burger by EuroTrash Food Cart from Portland, Oregon was surprisingly good. I was hesitant to try it since I couldn’t image a soft shell crab burger but the spicy mayo yogurt sauce elevated the burger. This dish makes me want to go to Portland to try all the awesome food carts there.

The seafood tostada from La Guerrerense by Dona Sabina Bandera Gonzalez from Mexico was nice and refreshing. They brought some ingredients from Mexico and you could choose how spicy you wanted the tostada. Lex was raving about how fresh and delicious the ceviche was. I’m not a fan of ceviche but I appreciated the dish.

I couldn’t imagine why there wasn’t a huge crowd at the venue since the dishes we tried were amazing. The only drawback from our point of view is that the serving size is too small for the price that they charge. We do hope that there is another World Street Food Congress next year since we’ve become huge fans.

Pesto Tomato Grilled Cheese

We don’t always have the time to cook and when we need something quick we usually make a grilled cheese sandwich with ham. This pesto tomato grilled cheese seems looks so enticing. We’re currently loving The Handburger’s Chicken Pesto Burger and this recipe seems like a great alternative. We could prepare the pesto sauce and just store it in the fridge.
