Tuesday at Figueroa Produce

13 Feb

I’ve never had so much fun at a grocery store!  Tuesdays are a great day at Figueroa Produce in Highland Park.  First of all you can get a 10% discount for mentioning twitter, who doesn’t love discounts?! More importantly, its “Food Truck Fun Time Day “as I like to call it.  I believe they are calling it “Din Din a Go Go”. This week before Old Toy Trains band practice, David G. & I attended this exciting event.  We ate at “No Tomatoes” (Indian truck) & “Ahn Joo” (Korean Soul Food). I was especially excited to eat at Ahn Joo because I used to watch the owner on the tv show “The Next Food Network Star”.  I am a total sucker for reality TV shows that have to do with food.

At the Indian truck I had a vegetarian wrap with potatoes.  It was super spicy and delicious.  At Ahn Joo I ordered the special Kale soup.  Figueroa Produce had the trucks cook with their special ingredient of the day which was KALE!  David got some truffle oil popcorn from somewhere which was really oily and delicious.  I like anything with truffle.  I will drink truffle oil.  Yum.

I was really impressed with Figueroa Produce because they are really starting to fill up their shelves with so much fun new stuff.  This week I discovered vegan Japanese food to-go as well as vegan cupcakes & donuts.  It is so exciting to have a vegan conscious grocery store that is a local neighborhood place and not a corporation like Whole Foods.  I think I am Figueroa Produce’s #1 fan.  Please support them.

This upcoming week on Tuesday the food trucks will be there again.  I’m assuming around the same time, from 5pm-9pm.  I will see you there!
