OC Block Party 2014

Pin It


After spending the prior weekend at Santa Anita Park


it was time to move the party to Orange County
and Angel Stadium in Anaheim.



Besides food and merchandise vendors,
there were also carnival games and rides.


What a cool location to be under one of the Angel helmets.


We arrived early and a lot of the booths had to wait for 
their health department inspection, so we waited patiently.

OK, so I was hot, hungry, and wanted something to drink!



Ordered a blackberry lemonade,

They got us something to drink
to cool off...


It was nice seeing friends at the Ramen Burger,
Mama Musubi, PopD Up, and Swirls Potato and Lemonade.


See What Jay Eats...

It was really nice to meet new vendors

Got to try the Red Velvet Mochi Waffle
from Puffect Bakery


Red Velvet Egg Puff with Mochi,
a Hong Kong style waffle,

Was surprised that I liked it with mochi


Sampled the Watermelon
from Chilly Ribbons in Westwood

Really loved the watermelon.

Just look for the Chilly Ribbons Hut,
you may even get snowed on...


Kailua Pork Slider
from The Hatch


Buttermilk Fried Chicken Waffle with cole slaw
and a side of jalapeño maple syrup 

I could've eaten the fried chicken by itself,
but was good with the waffle and cole slaw.


Yellowtail Poke with honey miso and Ahi Poke
with compressed watermelon
from Silo

My favorite was the Yellowtail Poke.


Carne Asada and Chicken Tinga
with onions, cilantro, and green sauce

Traditional Style


Kakuni Pork, Braised pork belly and cabbage,
and Takashi Beef, Japanese marinated beef and cabbage

Bandito Style

These were good tacos...


It's starting to cool down and more people showing up.



Something good is about to happen
from Chomp Eatery in Santa Monica.

Thanks to Kelsey at PopD Up for the introduction.



Sweet, salty, savory...

I love when a burger is cooked just right!


Croissant Donut Burger

100% Angus Beef, Maple, Bacon, Cheese on a Croissant Donut.

Nuff said...

Go see them in Santa Monica.


I'm really glad that there were some new vendors
to try their menu offerings and meet new people.

It wasn't as crowded on a Friday night
as I thought, but the entertainment and
rides were the place to be.



The night ended with running into
Night Market friends.



See You at the Next
Night Market!
