_Bite Me LogoThe IE is no stranger to food truck festivals but every once in a while, a few are impressive. Most festivals are a wimpy gathering of food trucks. But we need selection! We need options! And here at the Corona Food Truck Festival at Dos Lagos, there were plenty. The only downside to having options is the price. You can’t escape it. On top of $10 for general admission, it’s not uncommon to pay between $5-$10 for a minimal amount of food from a single truck.

But it’s really, really good stuff.

It was a hot day (100 degree weather that is just miserable to walk around in). So of course I made the worst (and best) choice, hot food items.

The Phantom Food Truck is based in LA and offers a mix of regular and unique tacos, fry orders and “inferno wings,” all Asian flavor with a dash of American flair. I was instantly interested in the Black Fury Tacos; bits of juicy flank steak, drizzled with a tasty (but not very spicy) black pepper sauce. Sadly  I was expecting a taco with more of a kick, but the sauce mixed with tender meat and crispy greens was still right down my alley. Hello, my name is Ashley and I’m a taco addict.

On the other hand, a much less spicy choice can be found with the Peking Duck Taco. Along with the usual taco goods (shredded cabbage, cucumber and green onions) this street taco is topped with a few slices of shredded and roasted duck (with a “special duck sauce.”) It was a much more refreshing, albeit extremely messy. Note to self: bring your own plate next time.
