Based on Wikipedia, Houston is the fourth most populous city in the United States of America , and the most populous city in the state of Texas. Houston is a diverse city with a large and growing international community which means diverse cultures and of course cuisine. For about 9 years that I have lived here, this city never fails to deliver some of the most exciting food choices from holes in the wall to fine dining restaurants.
This weekend, we got our first glimpse at Haute Wheels Houston. It was our very first experience with the food trucks. In the recent years, there has been a rise in food trucks and you can spot them in almost every major city in the US (and on TV shows of course). This festival, however, is totally cool. You don't get to try food from just one truck but 34 food truck vendors! Eat out until your belly explode!! Warning: this is not a suitable place for health enthusiatics.
How I found out about this? One day I was just searching for things to in Spring and just googled it. This festival came in just in time and I just knew my husband would LOVE to go. So we went. From what we read, this was the 4th year and we were lucky we bought tickets online because it was sold out at the gate. We got there a little after noon and there was already a line (but not too bad). It was a cloudy day with chance of rain. We stayed for 2 hours and left before it started raining. Wish we could stay longer to taste more food and be a pig.
There were so many Asian fusion food trucks and more, but honestly after trying out 2 trucks our bellies were getting filled up so we hit the dessert trucks for some sugary items. The admission fee was $16 per person (kids under 12 are free I think). We thought that admission fee was kinda silly and rip off, it only covered some drink items yet you still had to pay for food. They said it was for a good cause because one whole dollar from each ticket sold would be donated to the Houston Community College, I mean "one whole dollar". Any it was a fun experience overall and everyhting we tried was pretty darn good!
