This weekend we spent some time at the Orange County Night Market with some friends of ours.
I guess night markets are a big thing in Asia, so a group decided to bring them to California. It was only the 2nd one ever hosted at the Orange County Fairgrounds, and it was great! Part cheesy carnival, part art walk, and the food! Oh, it was all about the food!
There were a ton of food trucks and food vendors. A majority of the food vendors were from Southern California shops and the whole event was heavily Asian inspired. There were some really weird things… like popping fish balls (Tim says these were awful!), BBQ squid, and… D-Cakes… Yes, dick cake. Penis shaped cake. On a stick. That made for some great photos that I just refuse to show you. :)
There were, of course, some delicious food options too! Some highlights for us were Kobi-Ahi’s kobe beef sliders (devoured these well before we could get a picture) and macaroon ice cream sandwiches from Dolcissimo Bakeshop. Tim is a much more adventurous eater than I am… He had the BBQ squid.
My favorite part of the night was the custom portrait we got drawn of us by Jessica aka Miss Mindful. It’s oh so cute, and has now become this blog header :)
