seattle food trucks (one last IFBC post)

So, you’ve figured out by now that I had a pretty spectacular time at the International Food Blogger Conference (IFBC) in Seattle last weekend. There are great posts about the IFBC all over the internet –  like this one by Kate, this one by Mardi, this one by Maria, this one by Marie, this one by Linda, this one by Jen, this one by Kelly, this one by Stephanie, and these two by Dianne – and I’m certain there are others that I’ve missed.

All I really want to do here is give you a little visual sample of the lunch we had on Sunday, the best of the two lunches we were served at the conference. Sunday lunch was the food truck lunch, the day the organizers brought in some of the local Seattle food trucks to provide samples of their specialties.

I was pretty excited about this lunch because, other than a single hot dog from New Orleans-based Lucky Dogs – eaten way back in the early 1990s when Florida played Notre Dame in the Sugar Bowl – I’ve never eaten from a food truck or food cart. And, according to my good friend, Rob, who happens to be the person who knows the most about restaurants in my hometown of Gainesville, there really aren’t any true food trucks around here. A couple of hot dog stands, but that’s it. Nothing like what Brett – a really neat guy I met at IFBC – has access to in Portland, Oregon.

So, let’s just get to the photos, shall we? Feel free to click through the photo to my Flickr page to get a bit more information about what you’re seeing in each one.

    Stayed here summer before last for our 20th anniversary – food, service, and scenery were absolutely amazing. I wrote 3 posts about it – hard to capture it all. This was a nice little trip down memory lane! My hubby (@dormantchef) was taking a photo for me today – hard to get him involved regularly but it’s great when he does. Hope your hubby shows up some more!
