ASUO Street Faire: A Food Addict’s Heaven

Walking up to this cart made my mouth water. The unique and delicious combos of sweet and savory ingredients definitely pulled me in. According to the crowd gathered around this food cart, the best sweet crêpe was the banana and nutella and the best savory crêpe was the one with roasted mushrooms, goat cheese, spinach and mozzarella.

Lochmead Farms:
Now this cart is definitely better than candyland. Front and center are shelves upon shelves of sugary caramel apples with various sprinkled toppings on them. If you are a caramel apple fanatic, this is your place to go.

Homemade Fried Bread:
Whenever the street faire comes around, the first thing that pops into my head is: I need an elephant ear ASAP. When I asked random people on the street which cart was their favorite, the majority of them said the ones with the elephant ears. I approve.

Sporks à la Cart:
One of the more popular dishes of this Filipino food cart is the chicken, rice, green beans and lumpia bowl. Another more interesting option was their bacon wrapped meatballs covered with a sweet-smokey barbeque sauce. Just thinking about it makes my stomach growl.

Aloha Grill:
This colorful Hawaiian style food cart had such a friendly aura that it was hard not to gravitate towards it. The dish of the day included your choice of teriyaki chicken or kaula pork with a side of mac salad and rice. Aloha.

Kettle Corn:
Okay now who doesn’t love a good kettle corn? You can’t have a street faire without kettle corn and cotton candy.

The Great Philly Cheese Steak Sandwich:
No lie, these philly cheese steaks are one of the best foods at the street faire. If you haven’t tried it, put it on the bucket list.

If you are an avid meat eater, here’s a tip for you: get the pulled pork plate. You will thank me later.
