  • Cypress Street Food Tuesdays!

    Food Truck Tuesday

    Hi everyone, this is a little local gem of an event called Street Food tuesdays in the City of Cypress. For those who may not be in the know, basically there's a couple spots in the Socal region where trucks gather in normally sleepy spots like strip malls or empty parking lots and serve the kinda food you would normally only get at 626 night market or at the county fair. Normally parking is easy (this one's in the huge Home Depot lot) and this is probably the biggest "chill" style of solely food truck events in the OC region with easily 10+ trucks of all sorts. From fusion, ethnic, to new american, dessert, and even a vegan truck once, this spot should have something for your taste buds too! Gameplan is for folks to show up whenever they can, and I'll be walking around with a nametag so we can gather up. Then we'll chill nearby or tailgate while enjoying our delicious but probably decadent libations. And if anyone feels like it we can do something after like go to the nearby billards bar or get some boba etc. Well hope to see y'all make it, this is the more formal event to try this spot out for our humble little meetup group. Since we had a good little crew last time.
