Figueroa Produce Vegetable of the Week Tuesday Food Truck Event

Layne Murphy | Feb 23, 2011 03:32 PM

I am indifferent about food trucks generally, being old and cranky I like to sit at a real table and have someone put food on it when I go out but my kid dragged me to the Figueroa Produce Tuesday extravaganza and we had a blast. They have different trucks and a different vegetable theme each week and last night there was a good crowd but no ridiculously long lines, even at the Grill 'em All truck.. This week's theme was leeks and we got leek topped french fries from the Frysmith which were oddly topped with a dollop of mashed sweet potatoes, a delicious leek and brussels sprout curry from Frankie and my favorite dish, leek and shitake sliders served on a bed of truffle popcorn from Vizzi. The vibe was great and there were lots of people giving samples and a guy playing guitar inside the market. They were also issuing 10% off Fig Produce coupons which bummed me out a bit, having already shopped there on Saturday. There is no place to sit down to eat but we're close enough to get everything home piping hot. Very civilized and I think the vegetable of the week theme is terrific.
