The LA Street Food Fest is just three days away, and the event just keeps getting bigger! Newly announced food vendors, talent and judges are sure to make the event the place to be in L.A. this Saturday afternoon.
For your dining pleasure, new additions to the already stellar food lineup include "Top Chef" Master Neal Fraser’s upcoming icdc (ice cream, doughnuts and coffee), the debut of The Beignet Truck, Highland Park’s Kitchen Mouse Vegan Café, Chef John Sedlar of Rivera, Rodolfo Castellanos of Oaxaca, Mexico's Origen and Pablo Salas of Mexico City's Amaranta.
The event will also feature six bars, including the newly added Hemingway Daiquiri bar, the Honey Bear Cocktail bar and a bar that will be serving something called “liquid nitrogen otter pops” (I mean, we have NO clue what those are, but we would buy a ticket just to find out!).
As promised, the LASFF will also include a concert to enjoy while you chow down on endless amounts of grub. Performers include Jessica Childress from this past season of "The Voice," California indie band Tommy and The High Pilots and alternative cover band Black Crystal Wolf Kids.
