Ktown Night Market Coming Easter Weekend 2014

One of my favorite things is going to one place and being able to try a lot of different kinds of food, kind of like a parking lot tasting menu.  One of the things that I love is the Night Market concept.  It's more of a relaxed market place where street food is featured.  And since I don't get to Asia much, I do enjoy the Night Markets in Southern California. 

The Inaugural KTown Night Market will be held this Friday and Saturday (4/18 & 4/19) at the Robert F. Kennedy Community Schools.  If you're old skool like me, you know the property as the Ambassador Hotel on Wilshire Blvd.  If you're much older than me, you might remember the Cocoanut Grove, where the 1939 Academy Awards Ceremony was held...way way before my time.  On June 5, 1968, it was also the site of Robert F. Kennedy's assassination, which the community schools are named after.  Regardless of if you're a history buff or not, it's a historic site in Los Angeles.   Get directions HERE

One thing that I do know, the organizers of KTown Night Market have assembled an All Star  Food Line Up, including the Seoul Sausage Company (winner of Food TV's Great Food Truck Race - Season 3), Grill'Em All (winner of The Great Food Truck Race - Season 1), The Lime Truck, Cool Haus, and many other food trucks and food vendors.

Here's what I'm looking forward to...

The Original Ramen Burger™ will be here.
the Original Keizo Shimamoto creation!
No Ramen Burger knockoffs here.

Crispy quarter-inch french fries seasoned with red miso powder,
green seaweed flakes, and salt served in a wax lined paper bag
and then Shaka Shaka!

"Shaka Shaka" comes from the Japanese phrase to "shake"
and the shaka sign in Hawai'i means to "hang loose."

T-shirts are available for $20
and introducing RB keychains at $6

See what happened the first time the
Ramen Burger™ was in Southern California

Mama Musubi
Gourmet Rice Balls

They're one of my favorite 626 Night Market vendors,
they usually have a line, so I know I'm not the only
one who thinks so too.

Angus Beef Ribeye Musubi

Which is one of my favorites,
the other one is their 24-Hour Pork Belly.

Mama Musubi will have a
Special KTown Night Market

Stay Tuned!
