Dining News: SactoMoFo 'Trucktoberfest' Coming Oct. 5
September 11, 2013
While the SactoMoFo group arranges local food truck meetups on a very regular basis, they still do a couple big events every year to bring out of town trucks into the mix. The next mobile food festival is coming on Saturday, Oct. 5, reports the Sac Bee's Chris Macias.
This second annual round-up of food trucks that lands in early fall is planned for Oct. 5 at West Sacramento’s River Walk Park. 20 mobile food vendors will set up shop, fron such perennial Sacramento favorites as Drewski’s Hot Rod Kitchen and Krush Burger to the Bay Area’s The Chairman Truck and KoJa Kitchen. That’s to say this smorgasbord of street food includes Asian influences, burgers, grilled sandwiches and plenty more to bust your gut.
Last year’s edition of Trucktoberfest drew more than 4,000 people who braved the triple-digit temperatures to chow down.

VIDEO: Ruhstaller Grows Beer Right in Our Back Yard - Hops, the female flowers of the Hop plant, are used to flavor beer. They are growing on two little patches of land right off I-80 in Dixon, separated by a tomato field. An unlikely sight, but this field of dreams is the brainchild of Ruhstaller 2.0. It’s much smaller compared to larger than life legacy of the original Ruhstaller of Sacramento, but plans for this old world meets new world brew are huge. Alisa Becerra on FOX 40.
Try It: Juno's Braised Beef and Chicken Torta - Juno’s Kitchen & Delicatessen in East Sacramento is a fabulous spot for creative sandwiches. I usually don’t veer far from the shop’s panko-crusted eggplant sandwich (with roasted peppers, Manchego cheese and basil aioli), but the other day I made a bold choice and chose the special of the day—a braised beef and chicken torta.

VIDEO: Sour Grapes? Moratorium on Parties at New Wineries Passed in Lodi - What’s the polar opposite of the lush, green vineyards and wineries of San Joaquin County? How about the sterile, bureaucratic halls of a planning commission meeting? In a 3 to 1 vote, the San Joaquin County Planning Commission enacted a yearlong moratorium on activities at new wineries, a topic that’s been a point of consternation for the past few years.
