SactoMoFo 4, the next installment of the wildly popular food truck event, will be held on April 21 at 8th & W Streets, reports Chris Macias in the Sac Bee.
Tentative plans also call for a first-ever beer garden, which would highlight local craft beers and microbreweries over that same ol' Miller Light. Additional mobile food vendors are expected to be announced soon, including the debut of a Sacramento food truck which specializes in Indian food.
Sacto MoFo organizers also plan to highlight a couple of issues facing the mobile food movement, both locally and around the state. AB 1678, recently introduced to the California State Assembly by Bill Monning (D-Carmel), would prevent food trucks from operating within 1,500 of schools. The legislation, supported by California Food Policy Advocates in their fight against childhood obesity, has since caused an uproar with food truck operators and consumers alike.

SactoMoFo 4 will also be a food drive for Sacramento Food Bank & Family Services, so please bring canned & other packaged food items to donate.
What happened to the best dish of the year? - When I reviewed Lounge ON20 several months ago, I named its charcuterie plate as the best dish I had encountered in the past year. So, what happened since then? I stopped in at Lounge ON20 recently with that question in mind, wondering what the kitchen was doing with its already stellar charcuterie plate. The answer: to remain the best, you have to keep pushing forward. Blair Anthony Robertson in the Sac Bee.
Dining review: Isabel's Taqueria & Pupuseria is long on quantity, low on price - The food here is delicious, revelatory, plentiful and affordable. And it's part of the culinary mosaic that makes Sacramento a great but underappreciated food town. The strongest segment just might be the area's myriad ethnic restaurants that offer lively cooking, new or familiar flavor sensations and great prices. Blair Anthony Robertson in the Sac Bee.
